A Brief History and Critique of the Altar Call

On today's program I discussed the evangelical practice of the Altar Call. I placed it within it's historical context, and then explained why Lutherans cannot and should not adopt such a practice.

Here is the program.

A very good podcast, Jordan, and one that should be heard by more in the church. The altar call indeed has become a "sacrament" in a sense, as people tend to look at it as an indispensable part of the service.

That makes me wonder.... I may have asked you this before, but is it fair to assess that altar calls denote a lack of proper law and gospel presentation, as they seem to function as a substitute for the Spirit's work of conviction and regeneration?
