    This is very important for us to get. I tend to agree with you that Lutheran theology is slightly off kilter with communion and baptism but this other stuff is so important and I’m afraid we overlook Luther’s contribution to reformed theology because of the different views of the sacraments. Still we should pay close attention. It is so Biblical and missing from most reformed teachings on Christian living

  2. Cross theology is a beautiful thing once fully explored. Repulsive at first because it glories in the bloody cross and it strips us of all our pretentious claims to save ourselves but brings life through the cross.
