Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Re: Cranmer's Sermon on Baptism: Cranmer's Catechism

I don't blame you for giving up, Ken.  I would give up as well if I had been so soundly refuted in a debate.  Next time, check your facts before engaging the other side.
In Christ,

Yes, it was a heretical document in which the Lutheran World Federation (ELCA and its overseas counterparts) gave away the store.  They're about as Lutheran as PCUSA is Reformed.   One LCMS dogmatician referred to the document as the "Augsburg Concession," and the faculties of both LCMS seminaries rejected the document as entirely unsatisfactory.
In any event, I don't think we need to exchange any more emails.   I consider our conversation to be at an end; any further emails from you will be unopened and unanswered.

If you want to talk about heresy, let's talk about the Joint Declaration on Justification.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that a "Lutheran" compromise with the Roman Catholic Church????
