Book of Concord

If you do not own a copy of the Book of Concord, get off your lazy rear and go get one. Ignorant Christianity was one of Luther's pet peeves. It is one of mine, too.

Go here. Order a copy and read it. Study it even. This is a valuable resource that you should not cheat yourself out of. Claiming to be a Lutheran is pretty silly if you have no idea what being Lutheran really means. To quote my favorite character from the movie Lilo and Stitch, "Here. Educate yourself."

If you do not own a Bible or a copy of the Book of Concord, you should fix that problem. We are only talking $25. If you cannot afford it, put it on the top of your Christmas list this year and let someone else buy it for you... hey wow... an opportunity to witness your faith... hmm... I wish I had thought of that!

If you own a copy of the Book of Concord, go find somone in your church that does not own a copy and buy it for him. Trust me that will not be hard. Once you both own a copy, start reading it together. He is your brother. Serve him as Christ serves. Love him as Christ loves. You two are each other's responsibility.
