I have been writing a series of entries dealing with the Lutheran doctrine of the Lord’s supper. You can find parts 1&2 here and here respectively. I told a reader named Nathan that I would be doing a third installment dealing with the actual idea of eating Jesus for the forgiveness of sins instead of just dealing with the language and semantic issues with which the first two articles were mainly concerned. By way of catching any interested person up to speed, I have been a confirmed LCMS Lutheran for a little more than 2 years, and my issues with this doctrine are fairly recent.
But I digress. My pastor has suggested that I read Herman Sasse’s “This is My Body”. I have taken that as a challenge and so this series is about to get longer by quite a bit and assume the form of reviews and interaction with the material in that book(although probably not exclusively).
Will Sasse save me, drag me kicking and screaming back from the brink of apostasy? We shall see.
