Hey, Lutheran friend! I came a across your blog, and though we disagree on a lot, I am also Lutheran (ELCA)! I was wondering if you know any other Lutheran bloggers?

Hi! There are a bunch of us! 

Here’s the ones I know off the top of my head: 

fangirl0013, summerspurplerose, lutherandb8r, lutheran16conservative, a-life-lived-well, tardishobbit

They don’t all necessarily post a lot about Lutheranism, but they’re Lutheran, so yeah :)

If anyone else wants in on this list, reblog and say hi :P I know I’m missing a few here. 

The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. Jealous for its own religious views, the world in turn charges the Gospel with being a subversive and licentious doctrine, offensive to God and man, a doctrine to be persecuted as the worst plague on earth.
As a result we have this paradoxical situation: The Gospel supplies the world with the salvation of Jesus Christ, peace of conscience, and every blessing. Just for that the world abhors the Gospel.

Thus you can gather how foolish it is- in fact, how terribly deceived so many people obviously are- when they ridicule pure doctrine and say to us, “Enough already with your ‘Pure doctrine, pure doctrine’! That can lead only to dead orthodoxy. Focus on pure living instead. That way you will plant the seeds of righteous Christianity.” That would be like saying to a farmer, “Stop fretting about good seed! Be concerned about good fruit instead.”

It’s easy to forget we have peace with God. Our conscience in particular might bother us because of what we’ve said or thought or done. We may struggle with our own sins and the sins of others. It’s like a battle and we wish we were at peace. That’s because we forget that Jesus did indeed come to bring us peace with God.
