On the bumpy road I had back to my old faith, I wanted to call myself a "confessional Lutheran". When a pastor (Church of the Nazarene?) came to our door in the 1990s and wanted us to join his church, I said I was a "confessional Lutheran" and turned him away. But there was still something more I wanted to say to him ... but I wasn't sure what it was. Now I do ... it is the Article Of Justification, the same article that gave President Wyneken spiritual life (see Part 1).
In the next Part 3, Bente addresses the other great issue of his day – the Inspiration and Inerrancy of Scripture.
