I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

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."
