After the Augsburg Confession was presented to Emperor Charles the V at Augsburg in 1530 there arose many questions of “What is the authoritative text of the Augsburg Confession?” There were various variations and changes that were in distribution which brought much confusion over the belief of the Lord’s Supper. The confessors made very clear that the confession in 1530 correct and in accordance with His Word. As Christians we need to make sure that our confession of Scripture is clear, concise, and always pointing to Christ. We believe, teach, and confess only what Scripture teaches for the sake of a clear conscience for all who hear.
