Heaven Is Shut Down
Today as well as throughout history, churches come in all shapes, sizes and forms, some have good theology, some have crappy theology, but they have one thing in common. Like Peter they confess Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Everything else flows from that confession.
But this is not to say that everything goes. Lutherans believe in heresy. There are theologies Lutherans vehemently oppose, because they exclude, they oppress and they exploit.
Jesus call is a call to love. God is a God of grace. All scripture has to be read through the eyes of love in the light of God’s abundant grace.
