This hideously laid-out hymnal has the heft and look of a church-body’s officially approved pew book, but as one browses its opening pages, it reveals itself to be the vanity project of one man: Nostalgic for the way things were in Service Book and Hymnal , he came back to the Ev. Lutheran Church in America and took up organ-playing as a type of physical therapy. One also begins to notice that the layouts, not only of the prefaces but also of the liturgy and hymns, are sprinkled with photos and portraits, biographical notes, and typesetting anomalies that make this book an unusually awkward hymnal at best. Another strange touch is the historical perspective of the first preface, which sums up the history of Luther’s Reformation with the hope that the schism between Lutheranism and Rome is in the process of being reconciled, since the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification in —though it also points out that the Pope’s jubilee indulgence, soon after the JDDJ, contradicted that agreement.

As a lover of Bach’s music, I do know a thing or two about the famous Leipzig “Thomaskantor” and composer. His sacred works -the nearly Cantatas, the large choral works B-Minor Mass; Magnificat; Christmas Oratorio; the Passions and Motets , the organ works- communicate a deep Christian faith; and together with his secular music Keyboards and Orchestral Works bespeak his great genius” “Hymnal Companion to the Lutheran Book of Worship”; p.

Only three compositions, for various reasons, can reliably be counted among J. From the group of the remaining 66, it is probable that Bach composed only a portion of the bass lines with figured bass while he culled and copied a number of these melodies and bass lines from various hymnals to which he had access the latter procedure has been documented.
I agree that by its moving rhetoric and its bold appearance of being scientific it is systematically undermining the simple intellectual truthfulness of our people; and that on this account this romantic cult of Jesus must be combated at all costs, but that this cannot be done more effectually than by [ 19 ]taking its basis in the theory of the historical Jesus 11 from beneath its feet.
Recently, I received an email from a fellow who boldly asserted that there are no Biblical passages that teach the Lutheran doctrine of baptism. You tell me what baptism does its purpose according to these scriptures and who it is for. I believe exactly what these passages say. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. To this I responded by sending him a lengthy email containing quotes from the writings and sermons of the earliest Christians and how they understood these Biblical texts. Upon receiving these excerpts from the ancient church fathers my critic pronounced every one of them to be heretics.
When I pointed out the fact that none of them were heretics, and that all of them are considered to be orthodox preachers and apologists of the Christian faith, and that some of them were martyred for their confession of Christ, I received one final email.

The bride is absolutely stunning in her beautiful white gown. Her hair is done meticulously, her makeup is applied perfectly, and her smile lights up the room. But as good as a bride and groom may look on their wedding day, there is a deeper beauty that God desires for His people. Bride and groom are to remain pure, chaste, virgin until the day God joins them together as one flesh.
We live in a day and age when purity, chastity, and virginity are rare, looked down upon, even scorned as old fashioned. And yet, those words are the essence of who the Bride of Christ is, as the Apostle Paul writes: A prominent Lutheran pastor named Johann Gerhard once wrote: The Church is as a chaste virgin. If you would be true to her, abstain from the embraces of the world.
You belong to her, see then that you dishonor not yourself nor her by any unholy alliances with the devil and the world.
