Even though this article begins a shift towards addressing the specific abuses in the Roman Catholic Church at the time of the Reformation (and thus this lines up nicely with the 492 Anniversary of the Presentation of the Augsburg Confession today, June 25), how is the Lutheran approach to addressing these abuses still very much relevant for our consideration of matters within the Church still today?
The specific abuse addressed in Article 22 — both kinds in the sacrament — isn’t really much of an issue today, but what are some places that we might still see similar errors in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper and should still apply the same confession and consider what Christ has instituted and given to His Church?
Rev. Timothy Appel, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Smithville, TX, joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss both kinds in the Sacrament in Article XXII of the Augsburg Confession.
Study the Lutheran Confession of Faith found in the Book of Concord with lively discussions led by host Rev. Sean Smith and guest LCMS pastors. Join us as these Christ-confessing Concordians read through and discuss the Book of Concord and Confessional topics in order to gain a deeper understanding of our Lutheran faith and daily application in our vocations.
