Was it only a few weeks ago that WELS longed to close down Michigan Lutheran Seminary, their prep school in Saginaw? Not enough money. Now they have $7+ million for a chapel.
WELS has a history of plowing money into a campus before closing it down.
The person or persons, perhaps parson or parsons who make the same remarks about the $7+ million chapel should study Lutheran doctrine. I am not surprised Mouse agrees with Mouse or with another Mouse. These guys cannot post their own names. Apparently they are just as ashamed of their own names as they are of Luther's.
A. Nony Mice - read this slowly, without your lips moving. There. Maybe read it over several times until you get it: Worship has nothing to do with bricks, mortar, garb, and incense. Proper worship can be conducted anywhere because the only priority is sound doctrine.
I would love to be an African sitting in a grass and mud hut, on the Internet, reading about WELS' passion for my pagan soul, while figuring out how this bankrupt sect has millions for a new chapel when the nearest chapel is put together with buffalo dung.
No, we would not want the McGavran/Leonard Sweet fans to graduate from college and not enjoy a really posh chapel. The chapel will make them orthodox.
