Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV. Where we go one, we go all.

Melanchthon - Repentance from the Augsburg Confession:
Shows That UOJ Is Blasphemy


"Of Repentance they teach that for those who have fallen after Baptism there is remission of sins whenever they are converted; and that the Church ought to impart absolution to those thus returning to repentance. Now, repentance consists properly of these two parts: One is contrition, that is, terrors smiting the conscience through the knowledge of sin; the other is faith, which is born of the Gospel, or of absolution, and believes that, for Christ's sake, sins are forgiven, comforts the conscience, and delivers it from terrors. Then good works are bound to follow, which are the fruits of repentance."
Augsburg Confession, Article XII. Repentance. Concordia Triglotta, St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1921, p. 49. Tappert, p. 34f. Heiser, p. 13.

Medium Rare observed:

"If I ask most any pastor, "Just what is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?" I expect the answer would be unbelief.

UOJs deny God the Holy Spirit in their denial of Justification by Faith. They deny that Holy God, the Word and Sacrament are creating or birthing, and sustaining eternal life of souls. That is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

UOJ is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit."
