What are the biblical and confessional bases for Lutheran traducianism?
Traducianism is not an official Lutheran teaching. While many Lutheran theologians have embraced the concept, many Lutherans stay out of the creationism vs. traducianism argument on the grounds that it is a false dualism. Amongst those Lutherans who do embrace traducian theory, usually Psalm 51:5, Matthew 15:19 and Romans 8:7 are cited as support. Lutheran teaching does however innately deny Pre-extentist and any creationist theory which denies the biblical doctrine of original sin.

Of or pertaining to Martin Luther, leader of the ProtestantReformation, a German theologian and author. An adherent toLuther's doctrines. The Protestant movement was breaking …away from the doctrines of theRoman Catholic Church. There is a denomination of the ChristianChurch named after Luther, the Lutherans. In a book called "Denominations - how we got them" by Stanley I.Stuber (copyright 1959), I found this summary of Lutheran beliefs:The doctrine of the Reformed Church is represented in the Apostles'- the Nicene, and the Athanasian creeds. It is distinct from aCalvinistic body. Stress is placed upon liturgy. Children are baptized "as heirs of the kingdom of God and of hiscovenant"; adults are baptized on profession of faith in Christunto the remission of sins. The church membership consists of all baptized persons. These areunder the care of the Church, and are subject to its government anddiscipline. The prospective members do not sign any specific creed,but they are required to make a confession of faith before theminister and elders. The Lord's Supper is practiced, with emphasis placed upon thespiritual presence of Christ at the Supper. Here is one of thechief differences between the Lutheran and the ReformedChurches. . Another Answer: . A follower of Martin Luther, a German scholar and preacher fromthe late 15th and early 16th century who believed that the Catholicchurch was not advocating and spreading the word of Jesus Christany-more and so he and his followers the Lutherans protested. This is where the term protestant comes from, aChristian that is not part of the original Orthodox, Catholic etcchurches.
Lutherans believe in eternal punishment for their sins. Lutheranism came from Germany when the first lot of ships came with German lutherans (the creators of Lutherism). They …came to escape religious persecution in Germany. _________________________________--- It is also Estonia's main religion. Lutherans profess their faith using the Nicean Creed== We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man; he was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried, and the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father; from thence he shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spake by the prophets. In one holy catholic and apostolic Church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Lutherans are another type of christians, they follow Martin Luther.
So they can get their sins forgiven http://www.saintaquinas.com/confess_essay.html ANSWER : The practice of confession in the early church was to confess our sins -…- both mortal & venial -- to the priest and to the entire Catholic community. Over the years, private confessionals were created to offer Catholics privacy as we confess our sins to a priest who serves as the voice of Christ and administer of the Sacrament -- which bestows healing and strengthening grace upon us -- for Christ. What happened is that Christians stopped confessing ALL their sins and usually it was the most serious (mortal) they refused to confess, publicly ergo the need for private confessionals. The objective is to be absolved of our sins. If public confession hinders that, then make it private. Our Lord knew that we are a visual, auditory creature. He knew WE needed to confess with our mouths -- get rid of our sins and the accompanying GUILT -- and WE needed HEAR the words of absolution in order to be truly free from the chains of sin. Theologically, the Church is the people. When we commit sin, it affects/stains the entire body of Church, not merely ourselves. We have committed sin against God but also against His Bride, the Church (the people of Christ). Thus, the priest also serves as the representatives of the Church (the Catholic Christian community) too.
It is a church-based school. It came in the wake of the reformationand the cessation of the Catholic Inquisitions. Lutherans in Germanthough that it was easier and less offens…ive to indoctrinate youngpeople in mandatory schools than it was to use force and coersionto punish adult offenders. So mandatory schools were developed forthose aged 5-13. But each school confessed to one religion or theother, hence the term confessional school. There were manyinterconfessional schools attempted, where students learnedtogether but were separatd for their religion classes. Thesefailed.
an autobiographical mode of verse that reveals the poet's personal problems with unusual frankness. The term is usually applied to certain poets of the United States from the …late 1950s to the late 1960s, notably Robert Lowell, whose Life Studies (1959) and For the Union Dead (1964) deal with his divorce and mental breakdowns. Lowell's candour had been encouraged in part by that of the gay poet Allen Ginsberg in Howl (1956) and by the intensely personal poetry of Theodore Roethke. Other important examples of confessional poetry are Anne Sexton's To Bedlam and Part Way Back (1960) and All My Pretty Ones (1962), including poems on abortion and life in mental hospitals; John Berryman's Dream Songs (1964) on alcoholism and insanity; Sylvia Plath's poems on suicide in Ariel (1965); and W. D. Snodgrass's Heart's Needle (1969) on his divorce. The term is sometimes used more loosely to refer to any personal or autobiographical poetry, but its distinctive sense depends on the candid examination of what were at the time of writing virtually unmentionable kinds of private distress. The genuine strengths of confessional poets, combined with the pity evoked by their high suicide rate (Berryman, Sexton, and Plath all killed themselves), encouraged in the reading public a romantic confusion between poetic excellence and inner torment. .
Confessonials are small boxes/rooms a bit like changing rooms where people go to confess their sins to a priest and be absolved. The priest will enter into one box and the 'si…nner' in th other. There is genrally a small section of wire mesh between the two so that you can be heard clearly but not be seen. first you will say to the prest: "Bless me father I have sinned it has been (no. days/weeks/months/years) since my last confession" The priest will the ask what your sins were and you will tell him. He is under a binding oath not to tell a single soul what is said in confessonials because that is between you the priest and god. The priest will then bless you and absolve you of your sins and give you a pennance to show you're sorry. this will often be some thing like 5 Hail Marys.
... does it matter?
Lutheranism is a religion that came from Germany and was started by Martin Luther who had been a Catholic priest in the 1600's and wanted to reform the Catholic church. ( Here… is a clue to help you with words like this. A word that ends in "ism" is an idea or concept about something.)

What is the name of that movie with the girls who go into confessionals and are given an amount of time the have to pray based on what their confession was about..They gave really raunchy confessions?
There was a scene in "A League of their Own" where the girls are at confession and the priest drops the book numerous times when Madonna's character is confessing her sins.
Neither. It is based on nature. The Tides, the moon phases, the weather, etc. Yes these are the same things that Pagans hold sacred, but paganism and the farmer's almanac have… nothing to do with each other (they may have centuries ago, but today they are not related).
