Now This is a Lutheran Altar!
This is the altar that was placed by Lutherans in St. Martini Church in Braunschweig, Germany: Martin Chemnitz’ church. It was installed during the age of Lutheran Orthodoxy. Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version. It is beautifully rich and filled with symbolism. Why do some Lutherans today think that church buildings that look like big non-denominational barns are more "spiritual"? Why do some Lutherans today shudder at the thought of a crucifix? Why are some Lutherans so uptight about being uniquely and distinctively Lutheran? I don’t get it.
