From the Confessions: The Defense of the Augsburg Confession
Concerning the Marriage of Priests
We see the great vice that God denounced before the flood, what he condemned before the burning of the five cities. Similar vices have preceded the destruction of many other cities like Sybaris and Rome. In these is presented a picture of the times that will precede the end of things.
Pulling It Together
We do not like to think of a wrathful God. Yet a holy God is by default, angry at times. His anger is stirred by willful disobedience, by those who think they know better than he does. So, those who willfully disobey him when he has been so generous in providing a way of escape from the disobedience of sexual vice, will certainly taste his wrath—if not in this life, then worse, in eternity. How horrible that this disobedience is encouraged in the churches, where God’s will and ways should be taught as a comfort to his people.
Prayer: Thy will be done, Lord. Amen.

The Sola Music Series offers simple collections of easy-to-play worship music, including new songs and arrangements of old favorites. Based in a confessional theology and a respect for the historical and sacramental liturgy, these resources do not require a high level of musical expertise. Written in a simple and straight-forward style, these songs are intended for congregations that would like to explore a less formal musical style in worship, while still maintaining the integrity of the traditional order of worship. Such music would fit into what is sometimes referred to as "contemporary" or "blended" worship, without necessarily requiring a full band of experienced musicians and singers to lead the songs. Providing lead sheets for guitar and vocals, along with full scores for piano, Sola Publishing grants to those who purchase this volume the permission to reproduce words and music of the songs within for local congregational use.
