I wouldn't consider myself a Lutheran. I'm not much into denominationalism, if that's a word, however I do worship with a small group of people who are unaffiliated.<quoted text>
Drew, you sound like a Lutheran :) Are you?
I have studied the London Confession of 1689 and found it to be quite Biblical. I have found that as time goes by, people have twisted things to fit their own agendas, so I give much more credence to those who have gone on, mainly because what they have written cannot be changed.
But I rely on the written Word and the Holy Spirit and if something doesn't line up, I disregard it.
