Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Is Mankato Hell?

Norm Teigen

A snowball's chance in Hell

If someone had asked me a few years back if my cousin Erling Teigen would ever be named to the Doctrine Committee of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, I would have said that a snowball would have a better chance of making it in Satan's demesne.

Well, he has been named to this Committee. How about that.

Erling is also teaching in the Seminary. And so is Dennis Marzolf.


GJ - If Erling is a snowball, then Mankato must be Hell.

The Little Sect on the Prairie has very high standards. When people learned that the new seminary professor, Moldstad, had no bachelor's degree, there was a dust-up. Apparently Moldstad then finished his bachelor's to uphold the high standards of the seminary facult - 100% have graduated from college! Moldstad then replaced the First VP of the sect in a carefully planned coup, as ELS Pastor Kincaid Smith bragged. He was soon enthroned as Pope John the Malefactor. Needless to say, this title went to his head, which was not exactly filled with Greek, Latin, Hebrew, and German.

An Augustana Synod (Swedish-American) historian marveled that boys off the farm could assume such airs as soon as they were ordained. Exactly how could someone so allergic to education teach subject matter so demanding of higher education?

Norm Teigen is right. Education tends to disqualify someone in the Little Sect.
