Lutheran-style Evangelism

I loved this post from Scott Diekmann of the Stand Firm blogsite.

He quotes from Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller regarding evangelism as the confessional Lutheranism views it:

..."Evangelism Training" will be nothing more than continued study and meditation on the proper distinction between law and Gospel.

...the central act of Evangelism is not asking the unbeliever to come to Jesus, but rather, in the name of Jesus, forgiving their sins. Evangelism is the Church speaking the Absolution to the World.

Absolution. What a wonderful word. We have been forgiven by Christ's work on the cross. This is unbelievably good news.
