When a line from another song appeared on the 40-by-30-foot screen — “greater things are still to come here” — spontaneous applause erupted. When this was applied to orthodox notions of natural knowledge of God and his law, a yawning chasm opened, for theology regarded natural knowledge as a remnant of an earlier knowledge which was supernatural in its origin as was all truth, which is revealed in full in the Bible; and in the background lurked the conviction that the unaided mind is impotent.

In this field, curiously, the more one studies history and dogma, the less secure he feels.” And when theologians cannot provide assurances, ordinary people cannot be blamed for distrusting those who live in America but take their orders from Rome. Part of their beliefs is that religion is a personal experience; there is often no exact definition of religious truth for all individuals. Cantacuzenus did nothing about its translation into the vernacular. This fact was due in great measure to the natural limitations of each, and to Luther's inability to understand his fellow Reformer, particularly with reference to the doctrine of the Lord's Supper, even though the real divergence of the Reformed from the Lutherans on the latter tenet was due not to Zwingli, but to Calvin.

As a historic and confessional Church, Lutherans are liturgical in worship and follow the order of the Mass. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. The letters and stories of imprisoned Christians provide a moving tribute to the few but dedicated church members who withstood not only false doctrine, but also a diabolical regime.
