Did you know that religiously Finland use to be a Lutheran country?

In fact formally she still is Lutheran in a sense because majority of the people are members of the Lutheran state church. Though her religious roots still are in the Lutheran Reformation which took place in the 16th century, the Lutheran state church has secularized and gone far away of her doctrinal basis as happened to the most of the large church bodies in the Western world. As a result it is not easy to get a correct view about the true Christian faith in its classical terms.

The are, however, people in Finland, called confessional Lutherans, which still hold and follow the traditional Christian faith on the basis of the Lutheran confession.
