Baptism (Lutheran Church)
BAPTISM (from the Greek noun βάπτισμα baptisma; see below ) is a Christian sacrament of admission and adoption , almost invariably with the use of water, into the Christian Church generally. The canonical Gospels report that Jesus was baptized —a historical event to which a high degree of certainty can be assigned. Baptism has been called a holy sacrament and an ordinance of Jesus Christ. In some denominations, baptism is also called christening, but for others the word "christening" is reserved for the baptism of infants . Baptism has also given its name to the Baptist churches and denominations . The usual form of baptism among the earliest Christians was for the candidate to be immersed , either totally (submerged completely under the water) or partially (standing or kneeling in water while water was poured on him or her)

As a response to this misunderstanding, Catholic doctrine was further clarified in the Council of Trent

Confession (Lutheran Church)
In the Lutheran Church, CONFESSION (also called HOLY ABSOLUTION) is the method given by Christ to the Church by which individual men and women may receive the forgiveness of sins; according to the Large Catechism , the "third sacrament" of Holy Absolution is properly viewed as an extension of Holy Baptism .

Indeed, Lutherans highly regard Holy Absolution. They, like Roman Catholics, see James 5:16 and John 20:22-23 as biblical evidence for confession. Confession and absolution is done in private to the pastor, called the "confessor " with the person confessing known as the "penitent"
