Remembering The Reformation

Well, that didn't go as planned!

So, last night I put a little something together to commemorate Reformation Day and the unleashing of The Lutheran Layman podcast (a fierce doctrinal dog!) upon the Internet.

Unfortunately, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Everything from the wrong bumper music being played to poor sound quality at times. Geesh! You'd think it was my first rodeo even though I have been doing this for years. I guess a 3 month hiatus took its toll, huh?

But the worst part? My Internet connection timed out before the show was over and I couldn't get it back! It's a real shame too, because I was just getting to the distinctly Lutheran part of the program.

Oh well. Perhaps I'll do another recording of a much shorter podcast that will include everything I couldn't get to last night before we turn our attention to what I hope will be a weekly engagement.

Yep, I'm actually planning to do a weekly podcast on BlogTalkRadio, because the world doesn’t need to hear another podcast, but it does need to hear the simplicity of the Gospel, or Christ crucified for the sins of all mankind. So please watch for that next week.

In the meantime, here's a link to last night's show in case you missed it and would like to listen.

PODCAST: Reformation - Be A Confessional, Faithful, Lutheran

Personally, I wanted the first broadcast of The Lutheran Layman podcast to establish a firm foundation and set the tone before embarking upon those weekly broadcasts.

Naturally, we focused on the importance of Reformation Day then, and the importance of Reformation Day today, but with an emphasis on a few key areas of concern coming from the unique perspective of this ex-Evangelical turned Confessional Lutheran.

*- The Lord of the Church
*- Standing Firm
*- A Brief Reformation Sermon
*- A Reformation In Catechesis
*- Does Being Lutheran Still Matter?

[NOTE: As mentioned, the last two segments listed above did not record due to "Technical Difficulties" that we couldn't resolve...]

Of course, I can't take credit for any of the content that was presented last night either (see podcast's description for source material used). All I did was compile my favorites so that I could share them with you.

In a Lutheran Layman's terms, let's not be ashamed of being a Lutheran.

[NOTE: As you know, I am a newly converted Confessional Lutheran who recently escaped American Evangelicalism. That being said, please contact me ASAP if you believe that any of my "old beliefs" seem to have crept their way into any of the material you see published here, and especially if any of the content is not consistent with Lutheran doctrine -- in other words, if it's not consistent with God's Word -- so that I can correct those errors immediately and not lead any of His little ones astray. Thank you in advance for your time and help. Grace and peace to you and yours!]

Thank you for visiting A Lutheran Layman! Please feel free to leave a comment or a question since we do not exercise censorship. We've seen a similar policy with other blogs and it's worth repeating: Please act as if you're a guest in my home, and we'll get along just fine. I think anyone would agree that the kind of back-and-forth that is characteristic of blogs/chat forums and social media is becoming tiresome for all of us. Still, we should confess, edify, and love (and contend and defend when needed). Bottom line? Search the Scriptures! Apply Acts 17:11 to anything and everything you find here and, if you do happen to disagree with something you find here (which is certainly ok), or think I'm "irresponsible" and "wrong" for writing it, then please refute my position by supporting yours with Scripture and/or the Confessions. I don't think that's an unreasonable request, especially for those who identify themselves as "Christians" here, right? Besides, Proverbs 27:17 tells us "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness." If you have an opinion that's great, I welcome it, but try to support it using God's Word. I mean, if the goal here is to help us all arrive at the truth of God's Word (myself included), then it should be easy to follow through on this one simple request (I'm talking to all you "Anonymous" visitors out there). Grace and peace to you and yours!
