I’m working on a new post on the Lord’s Supper. I think if I was meaning to turn this blogging thing into something of a permanent nature, I’d find a way to stretch this upcoming post out across several weeks so that people would keep coming back, but that’s not what this is about. I still have a job, a catechesis process (and soon we’ll be completed and can commune!), and a life to lead outside of this blog. That being said, I know that people stop viewing if I stop posting, and I want those who want to know why I’ve left the FE faith for the scriptural, historical faith to feel satisfied in knowing, even if they disagree with my conclusions. Because of this, I try to post at least every two weeks, and I’m a little past that. It will be a little while longer for the next post, too.
We will now return to the Gospel, which not merely in one way gives us counsel and aid against sin; for God is superabundantly rich [and liberal] in His grace [and goodness]. First, through the spoken Word by which the forgiveness of sins is preached [He commands to be preached] in the whole world; which is the peculiar office of the Gospel. Secondly, through Baptism. Thirdly, through the holy Sacrament of the Altar. Fourthly, through the power of the keys, and also through the mutual conversation and consolation of brethren, Matt. 18:20: Where two or three are gathered together, etc.
