A Confessional Lutheran's Website

(A Mixture of Seriousness and Fun)

by Robin Olav Vogsland

I am a Confessional Lutheran, one who adheres to the truths of Scripture as rediscovered during the Reformation. Confessional Lutherans are rare and should not be confused with those Lutherans who tend toward unscriptural, "modern" (liberal) theological systems.

"Confessional" means adhering to the "Lutheran Confessions." The Lutheran Confessions are formal statements of Biblical doctrine formulated at the time of the Reformation; they are collected in the Book of Concord. As man-made documents, these confessions are useful only because they accurately reflect the teachings of Scripture--and they carefully avoid the incursion of false teaching that has grieviously fragmented Christ's body in earth.

Being a confessional Lutheran is nothing more than being a Christian. I will enthusiatically use the Confessional Lutheran label when it is necessary to set myself apart from unscriptural false teachings, but otherwise, I consider myself to be merely a Christian.
