Morgendämmerung, oder, Wie man mit dem Hammer theologirt.
Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id es semper esse puerum.
Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.
Homo sum humani nihil a me alienum puto.
Semper idem sed non eodem modo.


Verbum domini manet in aeternum. The word of the Lord endures forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25, quoting Isaiah 40:6,8. Motto of the Lutheran Reformation.

Fayth onely justifieth before God. Robert Barnes, DD The Supplication, fourth essay. London: Daye, 1572.

Lord if Thou straightly mark our iniquity, who is able to abide Thy judgement? Wherefore I trust in no work that I ever did, but only in the death of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt, but through Him to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Robert Barnes, DD, before he was burnt alive for "heresy", 30 July 1540.

What is Luther? The doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for anyone. Martin Luther, Dr. theol. (1522)

Get On The Gospel Ship! (With Some Gospel Music).

Man, would I love to trade fours with the brother preaching on guitar!

You better watch it, Prez K might just see this and book them for your Synodical Convention this summer!

Not likely! This is Gospel music, not Contemporary Christian Music.

That's one of three reasons why I post this sort of thing:
1) To help Lutherans hear that not everything that isn't Bach, hymns or chorales is not CCM either;
2) Gospel music in fact shares many features, despite stylistic differences, with chant;
3) I love it.
