A new weblog for boreal Lutheranism

Dr William Tighe has put us onto a new weblog, Tentatio Borealis, whose author, Esko Murto, is a pastor in the Finnish Lutheran Church and part of the confessional movement in Finnish Lutheranism, connected with the Mission Province in Sweden. Pr Murto is currently a student at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a theological school of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod.

From one of Pr Murto’s posts, is this ringing condemnation of all Protestant and Anglican (and Old Catholic) apostasy:

One thing is widely common to all apostasy: it can not bring itself to publicly confess that doctrine and faith have really been changed. The facade of confessions are kept up, the traditions and church history are highly revered, yes. Because in the end, Church which has given up the Word of God has no other force keeping it together than tradition and power.

How true, Pr Murto. How deeply, deeply true.
