An Essential Pick
Sometimes I need to get back to basics and this interview with Pr. Erik Rottman does just that. He discusses his book, “To All Eternity: The Essential Teachings of Christianity” and the essential teachings which are the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the means of grace.
Pr. Wilken closes the program this way, “… these things hold us fast. They are not just for the babies, the baby Christians, or the children. We remain children in the faith our whole lives long. These are the things that grow near and dear. Why? Because all of them, the Ten Commandments that show us our sin and drive us to the Cross, the Apostles’ Creed that teaches us who the true God is centered in our redeemer Jesus, the Lord’s Prayer, the prayer that Jesus gave us Himself to pray, the baptism of Christ, the word of Christ’s forgiveness, the Lord’s Supper, Jesus’ Supper all of these things point us again and again and again throughout our lives to Jesus Christ and Him crucified, our savior.”
