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 L…utherans. 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. ( Full Answer )
Lutherans. We believe that Jesus died to save our sins and still lives with us. God sent Jesus to save us from sin, death, and the devil. The Holy Spirit works through people and things to speak to us. Jesus will come back to Earth, and all the believers who are baptized will be saved, and the o…thers will be damned to hell. Our Bible has 66 Books, that are within the Old and New Testaments. Here are the names: OLD TESTAMENT: Genesis Exodus Leviticus Numbers Deuteronomy Joshua Judges Ruth 1 Samuel 2 Samuel 1 Kings 2 Kings 1 Chronicles 2 Chronicles Ezra Nehemiah Esther Job Psalms Probverbs Ecclesiastes Song of Solomon Isaiah Jeremiah Lamentations Ezekiel Daniel Hosea Joel Amos Obidiah Jonah Micah Nahum Habakkuk Zephaniah Haggai Zechariah Malachi NEW TESTAMENT Matthew Mark Luke John Acts Romans 1 Corinthians 2 Corinthians Galations Ephesians Phillippians Colossians 1 Thessalonians 2 Thessalonians 1 Timothy 2 Timothy Titus Philemon Hebrews James 1 Peter 2 Peter 1 John 2 John 3 John Jude The Revelation This religion was started by a Roman Catholic monk named Martin Luther. His father was sending him to a school to be a lawyer. He was walking along a path when a storm erupted and hid under a tree. He then dedicated his life to God for being saved. He read the Bible, cover to cover, and discovered that God is a loving god, not a hateful god. The Roman Catholic Church was making people pay fines after the people died, to get out of purgatory. There were many things like this that God never commanded. He began to spead this word, and the church became angry with him. They made plans to send him to jail. But some of his friends saved him and sent him to an abandoned castle. There he wrote the Catechism, and read the Bible many more times. After trials the church sent him to, he earned followers. Thy called their religion Lutheran. Martin did not like this name; he didn't want it to sound like it was his religion. The Lutheran religion does not interfere with how we dress or eat. Most families in the Lutheran religion are German. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
With some 300,000 young Catholic pilgrims attending WYD from July 15-20 the Church is staging the world's largest confessional, with more than 1,000 priests at anyone time hearing sins and dispensing penance at 250 locations.
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 cr…eated 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. ( Full Answer )

The "seal of the confessional" is basically the obligation that the priest has to never reveal the contents of a Sacramental confession. This is so important that he will be excommunicated if it is discovered that he has not maintained this confidentiality.. This is outlined in the following ca…nons from the 1983 Code of Canon Law:. Can. 983 Â§ 1 The sacramental seal is inviolable. Accordingly , it is absolutely wrong for a confessor in any way to betray the penitent , for any reason whatsoever , whether by word or in any other fashion .. Â§ 2 An interpreter , if there is one, is also obliged to observe this secret , as are all others who in any way whatever have come to a knowledge of sins from a confession .. Can. 984 Â§ 1 The confessor is wholly forbidden to use knowledge acquired in confession to the detriment of the penitent , even when all danger of disclosure is excluded .. Â§ 2 A person who is in authority may not in any way , for the purpose of external governance , use knowledge about sins which has at any time come to him from the hearing of confession .. Can. 1388 Â§ 1 A confessor who directly violates the sacramental seal , incurs a latae sententiae excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See ; he who does so only indirectly is to be punished according to the gravity of the offence .. Â§ 2 Interpreters and the others mentioned in can. 983 Â§ 2 , who violate the secret , are to be punished with a just penalty , not excluding excommunication . ( Full Answer )

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 hi…s 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. .

I would have to say yes..... Of course I know God is not a Genie in the bottle, but Jesus (God Himself) did say in Mark 11:24; "I tell you, you can pray for Anything and if you Believe that you've Received it, it will be yours".... which sounds very similar to the Secret's "creative process" of Ask,… Believe, Recieve. \n. \nThe Secret also points out that one of the first things you should begin to do in order for this "Law of Attraction" to work is practice Gratitude in your daily life, which of course is a huge biblical principle. For example; Thessalonians 5:16-18; Always be Joyful, Never stop praying. Be thankful in All circumstances...\n. \nThe Secret also teaches about the importance of Faith, or un-waivering Faith I think they call it, which, happens to be one of the most talked about and important principles within the Bible. The Bible is full of stories of greatness and miracles, things that might seem impossible in the natural, that all revolved around people or groups of people having great Faith; Abraham and Sarah, David, Moses, Noah, the parting of the Red Sea, nearly all of Jesus' teachings, and dozens more. \n. \nThe lastly we have the Law of Attraction, which is never directly called the Law of Attraction in the Bible, but the law itself is supported numerous times throughout the Bible with statements and promises made by God and Christ. For instance Hebrews 4:12; For the word of God is alive and Powerful, it exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.... and there are literally dozens of other verses in the Bible that support this great Law.\n. \nDon't forget that you have great Power built within you, for God said that we are made in his image, made to be Like God. If you are not believing in God to bring you everything in life you could ever want or need then you are not fully utilizing the gift of his Power which he has freely given you. \n. \nThe Bible was not only meant to lead us to eternal life through the salvation of Jesus Christ, and while that may be it's primary and ultimate purpose, the Bible is also meant to teach us how to live each day in order the have the best experience possible before we go. God wants you to live a blessed, abundant life while you are here, and he will give to you everything you could ever possibly need or want....if you just believe.\n. \nSo while "The Secret" is not the Bible, nor should it ever be used solely as a guide to this life or the afterlife, many of the principles and practices discussed in "The Secret" are in fact, very significant Biblical principles that work 100% of the time when used in your daily life. \n. \nGod Bless\n. \nwww.secretsofthebible.net ( Full Answer )
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 'sinner' 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. ( Full Answer )
Sola Scriptura, which means if it isn't stated specificallyin the bible, it isn't necessary or literal. And that faith in Godalone is what will get you to heaven. Yet the doctrine of 'Sola Scriptura' itself is not to be foundanywhere in the bible.

Lutheranism today is a broad term in Christianity. There are three divisions between Lutheranism, ELCA (evangelical lutheran church in America) LCMS (Lutheran church Missouri synod) and WELS (Wisconsin evangelical lutheran synod) They are all fundementally very different. To put it in basic, ELCA is… definitely the most liberal church of them all, they believe in open communion, they promote and encorage gay/lesbian activities even within the clergy, and do not believe that the Bible is the "true inspired word of God" in basic, they do not believe the laws of the bible are all aplicable in society today, and that since christ died to save us from our sins, we do not need to acknowledge our sins. The next division is LCMS, however they may share some similarities, LCMS is incredibly different, much more conservative, basically. First of all, they believe strongly in closed communion that you must understand and observe the sanctity of Holy communion that it is the "true body and true blood or Christ". They accept Gays into their churches as sinners, like everyone, however acknowledge that what they are doing is wrong, and requires repentance. Basically that what the bible says is wrong, is wrong, Christ came to save all sinners, who repent and are heartfully sorry for their sins. WELS is very similar except even more strict within the church, they do not allow female elders or anyone who is female within any branch of the church, this division is by far, the least populated. There is alot more differences between each synod other than these ones i brought up. If you need more answers ask a pastor, Im LCMS, were the mediators of this argument, we arent too liberal, not too conservative, just right, i think its the goldylocks synod of Lutheranism. If im mistaken in any aspect of this anyone, please feel free to correct me, im only 17 still learning. ( Full Answer )

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.)
Yes. The Lutheran church was one of the first churches to become established in Australia, with the arrival of the Germans escaping from religious persecution in their homeland from around the 1840s onwards.
It is a room in a Catholic church where people go to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation of which confession (confess = to tell the truth) is part.
No a priest cannot repeat anything told him as part of a confession.. But Confession and Reconciliation happen after the sin is committed, not before. So he cannot stop murder or any acts of terrorism.. The Code of Canon Law states: The sacramental seal is inviolable; therefore it is absolutely f…orbidden for a confessor to betray in any way a penitent in words or in any manner and for any reason.. Violation of the seal of confession results in immediate excommunication of the priest.. Priests may discuss things in general terms..

In short: Christian- Protestant Lutheranism began right before the Renaissance as a revolt against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The denomination's namesake did not want to start a new church, but merely change or 're-form' those teachings which he believed were not in line with wha…t the Bible taught. While the Roman Church did not change their teachings, Luther's ideas spread rapidly and the Reformation began. The Lutheran motto is "Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Sola Scriptura," which means that people can enter heaven ONLY because of faith given to them by the grace of God, with the Bible being the only rule of measure for their lives. In America, there are a few different branches of the Lutheran Church. The ELCA is the largest and arguably the most liberal. The WELS is the third largest and one of the most conservative branches in America. The LCMS is the second largest and somewhat conservative. There are other branches, as well. Famous Lutherans include Philip Melanchthon, J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, C.F.W. Walther, Dietrich BonhÃ¶ffer, and William Rehnquist. ( Full Answer )
