Veith on Lutheran Invisibility

"Right on" again, Dr. Veith poses some interesting questions about Lutheran Invisibility over at his Cranach blog. Here's the money quote:

Don't they know there is a church that has the best of Catholicism (sacramental spirituality, liturgy, a rigorously worked-out theology), of Calvinism (grace alone), of Arminianism (Christ died for all), of the Baptists (the inerrancy of Scripture), of Charismatics (tangible supernatural manifestations, which we call Sacraments), all with a non-legalistic, non-pietist church culture that emphasizes Christian freedom.

Quite a fascinating view of the Lutheran church. I spent many years in pentacostalism. One thing i notice is that pents. use a lot of music, movement, and stimulai to get "in the spirit" while lutherans tend to be more meditative and seeking the beauty of the mystery. And as a former catholic, I can see how you have the best of those worlds
