    Confession is for Absolution

    The Augsburg Confession is clear; the aim or purpose of repentance is the application of Christ to the sinner. In articles 11 and 12 of the Augsburg Confession and the Apology, the Lutherans took a stand on the declarative forgiveness of sin.

    How to Obtain Forgivness

Know the Truth

Excellent show for those who are seeking and willing to engage critically in the truth of Christianity through the lens of the philosopher/theologian/apologist. We often forget that nearly everything that can be asked and debated, has been asked and debated about Jesus Christ over the last 2000 years. And that means the good news that is FOR YOU rests on a solid unchangeable foundation, not on the ignorant yearnings of mankind.

Worth a listen

I was predestined to write this review. So how could I resist?

Advanced Theology in Plain English

The Thinking Fellows provides an accessible yet thought-provoking education to nuanced theological and historical topics. Highly recommend for Christians and non-Christians alike and especially those interested in the intersection between Lutheran theology, Reforemation Era Church history, and apologetics. ~Crux Sola est Nostra Theologia~
