A Reading from the Book of Concord
1 year series

July 3, 2011 - Second Sunday after Trinity

The following reading from the CONCORDIA edition of the Book of Concord is for the Gospel, Luke 14:15-24 for the Second Sunday after Trinity, July 3, 2011.

It is from Augsburg Confession, Article XIX.

Why doesn't everybody go to heaven? As Jesus illustrates in the story He tells in today's Gospel lesson, people feel they have better, more important and urgent things to do with their lives than spend their time with the heavenly things to which our Lord invites them. Such is the way of sin--to follow one's heart.

The attached reading is formatted for the back of a standard CPH bulletin.

A READING FROM THE BOOK OF CONCORDSECOND SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
AUGSBURG CONFESSIONTHE CAUSE OF SIN

Our churches teach that although God creates and preserves nature, the cause of sin is located in the will of the wicked, that is, the devil and ungodly people. Without God's help, this will turns itself away from God, as Christ says, "When he lies, he speaks out of his own character" (John 8:44).
