EXPLANATION TO THE THIRD ARTICLE
I believe that I cannot by my own thinking or choosing believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to Him.
But the Holy Spirit has called me by the gospel, enlightened me with His gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true faith. In the same way he calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.
In this Christian church He daily and fully forgives all sins to me and all believers.
On the Last Day He will raise me and all the dead and give eternal life to me and all believers in Christ.
This is most certainly true.
