1. The Holy Spirit does what his name implies. He makes us holy. We believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord, and come to him only by the Holy Spirit who calls us with the gospel.
  2. God not only unites us to himself by the death and resurrection of his Son; he unites us, the church, together and to himself under Christ as his children.
  3. When it comes to confessing the truth of the Christian faith, Christians are given the words. We don’t have to formulate them ourselves.
  4. When we Christians shoehorn Creedal Christianity into any of these ideological positions we obscure the Gospel mingling it with the Law and strip the Good News of its catholicity.
