The Greatest Enemies of Confession and Absolution
 
 
Each summer, we take up one of the “Six Chief Parts” from Luther’s pen.  This summer’s focus is upon Confession and Absolution.
 
In his Small Catechism, Martin Luther writes that confession has two parts:
 
First, that we confess our sins, and second, that we receive absolution, that is, forgiveness, from the pastor as from God himself, not doubting, but firmly believing that by it our sins are forgiven before God in heaven.”

 

Confession and absolution are the bedrock and basis for our Christian faith.  Without them, our hearts grow cold and our spiritual fervor dies.
