The Lutheran religion is nothing less than diet Catholicism

The Lutheran religion is nothing less than diet Catholicism, i.e., you get the same poison of Catholicism, just less of it.  The Lutheran religion is straight from Satan himself.  Jesus never commanded us to follow any man's teachings over the Word of God. 

There is not one single Verse in the entire Word of God which teaches that salvation comes through "Holy Communion."  In fact, the phrase "Holy Communion" is NOT found in the Bible at all.  The Bible speaks of "communion" in 1st Corinthians 10:26, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?"  The Greek word for "communion" is "koinonia," which means, "partnership. i.e. (lit.) participation." 

Thus, a person "participates" in the sin-cleansing blood of Jesus Christ through faith in Christ alone; and not, by works or the Lord's Supper.  Paul was simply teaching the believers at Corinth that they were saved by the blood of Jesus, and were being hypocritical to partake of the Lord's supper while also eating meats offered to idols (partaking of idolatry).  Paul told them that it was impossible to eat at God's table and the Devil's, "Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

Tragically, this is exactly what the Catholic and Lutheran religions are doing today when they worship Mary in any capacity. It is idol worship. Mary was a sinner who died because of her sins (Romans 6:23).  Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest human being ever born amongst women (Matthew 11:11), so why recognize Mary?  Jesus said that the least person in Heaven will be greater than John the Baptist.  Mary is no more special than anyone else in Heaven.  It is unscriptural and sinful to worship Mary in any way, shape, or form.

1st Corinthians 10:16 must NOT be interpreted by itself.  Basing a doctrine upon this Scripture alone could easily result in a damnable heresy, which is exactly what Mr. Luther has done.  1st Corinthians 11:25 clearly states, "After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in REMEMBRANCE of me.

Paul was quoting Christ when in Luke 22:19 Jesus said, "...This is my body which is given for you: this do in REMEMBRANCE of me."  The Word of God plainly teaches that the Lord's Supper is simply a means to REMEMBER what Christ did for us upon Calvary, no more.  To claim, as Chatholics and Lutherans do, that there is some special power to the Lord's Supper is a Satanic lie.

The Lord's Supper is ONLY symbolic of the flesh and blood of Christ, which was sacrificed to take away our sins.  Only through faith alone in Christ can anyone be saved (John 14:6).

The Damnable Heresy of Confessing Your Sins to a Lutheran Minister

The Lutheran minister and the Catholic priest arrogantly and sinfully proclaim that they have the "special power and right" to forgive sins; but they certainly do NOT.  They also claim the "special power and right" to deny forgiveness of sins to the impenitent; but, again, they certainly do NOT.  This is clear from the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:15 , "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.Ephesians 4:32   And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Listen friend, you can confess sins to your Lutheran minister or Catholic priest 'til the cows come home if you want, but that won't  forgive your sins.  Romans 1:16 declares that forgiveness comes through the power of the GOSPEL, and nothing else.  The Gospel being Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection.

1st Timothy 2:5

2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

The so called "pope" in rome, catholic priest, lutheran priest has NO ablility to fogive your sins nor be a mediator for you.

1st Timothy 2:5 makes that very clear.

So you need to make a decision. Are you going to allow a "priest" in the catholic or lutheran church to be a mediator for you and IGNORE 1st Timothy 2:5 that says the only mediator is Christ ?

Read God's Word    How Satan Works

I remember talking with a woman who was a baptist who married a catholic and coverted to his false religion because of marriage.

I explained that the "pope" in rome was a fraud and had NO ability to be a mediator for her sins and that worship of Jesus mother was idol worship.

She indicated she understood what I was saying BUT she had decided to go along with her husband's religion because she married him.

I can only hope she was or will be saved by the grace of God in spite of her attending a church that teaches a false religion, another gospel, that is leading people to hell and the The 2nd Death

The Word of God is clear that ONLY God can forgive sin, "...who can forgive sins but God only?"

(Mark 2:7)

2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

The POWER of the Gospel in Romans 1:16 is the key that frees us from the bondage of sin, the condemnation of the Law, the fires of Hell, and the lies of false religions which lay burdens "grievous to be borne" upon men's shoulders (Matthew 23:4)

But again, there is no reference to ministers or priests being given the "special power and right" to forgive sin.  To teach such nonsense is to neglect hundreds of Scriptures which do NOT agree.  We can forgive other's their debts, foolishness, wrongs, trespasses, and evil's against us; but only God alone can forgive SIN. 

2nd Peter 2:3

2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.  See the sermon The 2nd Death  (The Eternity Of Hell's Torments)

If you are trusting  in a catholic or lutheran false religion you are deceived. These false churches only make merchandise of you, exploit you, and use you to deceive others.
