A Definition of Lutheranism

A Facebook friend wrote this on my wall, after I asked him what he means by "Lutheran."  I just thought I’d share.

by Lutheran, I mean…..free to love, respect for / critique of
tradition, sacramental, gospel-centered……and not decisionists,
Hitleresque militants, "whatever you want to do in worship" pietists.

I think he’s probably got something there . . .

Peace.

    Yeah, that’s not bad–especially the “Hitleresque militants” part.
