What is the difference between how the Reformed and Lutherans view repentance? Clarify the statement “Repentance is being found by Jesus”? What are the two parts of repentance? 2. From a lifelong Pentecostal who is now a Lutheran in Training about the Sacrament of the Altar: What is the history of the Passover and how are those customs replaced both by what Jesus did on cross and in the Sacrament of the Altar? 3. What is our understanding of Confession and Absolution and how do we receive forgiveness? 4. Did the prophets know about what they were prophesying? 5. How do you respond when someone says,”Communion every other week makes it more special”? 6. Help me understanding book of Revelation. Evangelicals read it as an unfolding of last days, but how do Lutheran understand it? 7. How do we rightly understand Christian worship? A worldly understanding is that we give homage to the one being worshiped. Seems the Christian understanding is that Christ gives us His gifts even though He is the one being worshiped.
