So today I visited a friend who’s father is a Lutheran pastor.
While my friend isn’t quite the theologian, I really enjoyed starting a religious conversation with his dad while my friend was off on the phone for a bit.
We ended up talking about Protestanism vs. Catholicism…then the Reformation came up.
He then took me upstairs to his room…where believe it or not…he had a very old and nearly decompossed piece of parchment in a glass frame.
It turned out to be an authentic indulgence from Germany.
We spent a few moments looking at it silently. He looked very somber and serious.
He remarked “See what your Church has done in the past?”
I wish you all could have seen the look on his face when I jokingly said
“I wish Indulgences were that easy to get now adays…”
He looked absolutley dumbfounded.
Making a Protestant Pastor feel like hes in the middle ages…Priceless
For everything else theres MasterCard.
