Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

More Augustana Celebrations...

PRESENTATION OF THE AUGSBURG CONFESSION; 25 JUNE
(475th Anniversary)

"I will speak of Your status before kings, O Lord, and will not be put to
shame."

"Since this teaching is grounded clearly on the Holy Scriptures and is not
contrary or opposed to that of the universal Christian truth, or even the
church of Rome (in so far as the latter's teaching is reflected in the
Fathers), we think that our opponents cannot disagree with us in the
articles set forth above. Therefore those who presume to reject, avoid,
and separate from our churches, as if our teaching were heretical, act in
an unkind and hasty fashion, contrary to all Christian unity and love, and
do so without any solid basis of divine command or Scripture."
(Augsburg Confession)


Lord, keep us steadfast in Your Word;
Curb those who by deceit or sword
Would wrest the kingdom from Your Son
And bring to nought all he has done.

Lord Jesus Christ, Your pow'r make known,
For You are Lord of lords alone;
Defend Your holy Church that we
May sing Your praise triumphantly.

O Comforter of priceless worth,
Send peace and unity on earth;
Support us in our final strife
And lead us out of death to life.

O Lord God, Heavenly Father, pour out Your Holy Spirit on Your faithful
people, keep them steadfast in Your grace and truth, protect and comfort
them in all temptation, defend them against all enemies of Your Word, and
bestow on Christ's Church Militant Your saving peace; through Jesus Christ,
Your son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One
God, now and forever. Amen.
