THE WORD FOR TODAY 05.07.2017
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Gen 2.18)
LUTHERANS - HAVE THEY ACTUALLY GOT OUT OF THE VATICAN?
YES - to my understanding, Martin Luther did what he should have to do at that particular time: an attempt of a reform inside the church. Yet, he was expelled, as everybody knows.
NO - lutherans, since long ago, have started an approach with the Vatican for something beyond the social services and a 'communion', which is not actually very clear to some people, but crystal-clear to lots of protestants.
Therefore, the question entitled above remains: have Lutherans actually got out of Vatican?
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,[a] I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
