Changes to this site Last Updated 03/18



To keep the WT in place, we have to bring back visitors to the site. One of the problems with the old site was the "signal to noise" ratio -- the good lutheran content v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that predominated the old site. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT, WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE WITH YOU FOR ANOTHER YEAR.  THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF A VOICE FOR LUTHERANISM.

WELCOME to the Wittenberg Trail! It's a joy to have you join us and to be a part of the wonderful things that are going on here. We encourage you to make this your home for all things Lutheran, from discussions, to information, to new publications from publishing houses. The Wittenberg Trail is here for you, so jump in and let your voice be heard.

 

But, we need your help to make Wittenberg Trail a success. Please encourage your family and friends to join. If your church has a website, please consider linking us to your website.

By the way "Thank You" to those who contribute to help keep Wittenberg Trail on the internet, your support is appreciated.

Have a theological (church) question that you would love to have a pastor answer? Visit the group, Ask the Pastor. First search the discussions to see if your question has already been answered; if not, add a discussion with the question in it.

'The Gospel Is Not...'

Short. Sweet. True.The Gospel is not, "God accepts your brokenness" (which is false, by the way); it's not even "Jesus ate with sinners"; it's the news that Jesus, true God and true man, gave Himself up as an atoning sacrifice for your sins; that because of this, your very real transgressions against God's Law have been forgiven, His resurrection manifesting the definitive proof that you, and indeed all mankind, are reconciled to God; that you have a righteousness that is not your own, but is…See More
