Welcome To Extra Nos


Welcome to my blog. It contains my musings and thoughts concerning the Christian faith. I got the title from Luther who referred to the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as "extra nos", it is objective and outside us.

I will be back soon. Please feel welcome to respond. Your reaction to my postings will be appreciated.

Does this leaning make you a "Lutheran"? (joke only...)
I like the "outside us" bit. Consider the following; the bible tells us to love our neighbours as we love ourselves; Confucius gives the golden rule - "do not do unto others what you would not have others do unto you"; and Buddha did teach the concept of what goes around comes around. Something in humankind looks very universal here. And "outside us", God can only be real and can only think well of us. ("What is man that you are mindful of him?", the psalmist did ask.)

Hi Once a Catholic,

Thanks for dropping by.

Yes, more or less Lutheran in orientation.

You were once a catholic? I presume Roman? Same with me, I still consider my self catholic (small c) but not Roman.

His Peace be upon you,
