Littell's Living Age : 24 March, 1849 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Littell's Living Age: 24 March, 1849 Lutheranism, that form of it at least that exists in Sweden, does not seem even to attempt to direct and guide its children. It leaves men's faith in their own keeping. It gives them a Bible, indeed, and it professes to give them a creed but it leaves it to each individual mind to accept these, and adapt them to their own fancies and prejudices as they see fit. Thus we iire assured, that while clergy and people profess to receive creeds, and symbolical books, and church ordinances, they only believe them so far as the Bible, interpreted by each individual, sanctions them and the' Bible they compare to the sun, which no two people can be certain that they 'see alike, and about which every one is welcome to have his own So long as they are churchmen in word, and ao knowledge Lutheranism in word, they may think as they please and as a confirmation of this, there is, in fact, no dissent in Sweden.
