Oprah Absolution

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

The Church is in the business of forgiving sinners, and my friends, business is a boomin. Every day the devil, the world, the Old Adam, and death awake in man his desires to sin. We desire to lust, envy what our neighbor has been given, and we grow in anxiety and depression. In short, there is...

The Good Stuff

In the Treasury this morning, Luther's "Babylonian Captivity of the Church," is the chosen devotional writing which says, "2nd Timothy 2:13-If we are faithful, He remains faithful-for He cannot deny Himself. This truth of God, I say, will sustain him, so that if all else should fail, this truth...

Why Death?

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

In the Treasury last week, there was a quote from the Formula of Concord Solid Declaration that asserts, "Christ is not man alone, but God and man in one undivided person. Therefore, He was hardly subject to the Law (because He is the Lord of the Law), just as He didn't have to suffer and die...
