Theologia Crucis - Lutheran Forum Statement of Purpose
A forum for all Lutherans to discuss and fellowship together.

A few things to know about Lutherans:
  • We believe in the five solas as they were originally formulated:
    • Sola Scriptura, scripture alone, the books of the New and Old Testament in the Bible are the sole rule and norm of faith.
    • Sola Gracia, grace alone, we are saved totally by the grace of God and man cannot contribute or cooperate in his justification.
    • Sola Fida, faith alone, we are saved through faith, and not by works.
    • Solus Christus, Christ alone, we are saved totally for the glory and by the works of Christ.
    • Soli Deo Gloria, glory to God alone. The purpose of everything is and totally shall be the glory of God.
  • We believe that baptism is a means of grace through which God creates and strengthens "saving faith" as the "washing of regeneration" in which infants and adults are reborn.
  • We believe in Real Presence - that the consecrated elements of bread and wine in Holy Communion are the true body and blood of Christ "in, with, and under the form" of bread and wine for all those who eat and drink it.
  • Good works are the fruit of a saving faith. All good works have their source in God.

Homosexuality and Same Sex Marriage:
Homosexuality and same sex marriage may be discussed in this forum, however, no promotion of these topics is allowed. Promotion is defined as encouragement of the progress, growth, or acceptance of something including advertising and publicity.

House Rules:
All posts within this faith community must adhere to the site wide rules found here (Community Rules). In addition, if you are not a member of this faith group, you may not debate issues or teach against it's theology. You may post in fellowship. Active promotion of views contrary to the established teachings of this group will be considered off topic.

Addendum:
It is considered flaming to represent any Lutheran body using symbols or other language to infer they are not Lutheran. Things like E*CA or E_CA are NOT allowed. It is one thing to argue against a church's doctrine, it is another to do so underhandedly.
