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

Adding Terms to Justification

UOJ Samurai Stormtrooper, feared by none.

The Cardinal (Cascione) is right about this:

"Adding terms to justification can be just as dangerous a removing terms."

Adding terms like:

  1. Objective?
  2. General?
  3. Subjective?
  4. Universal?

One layman battling OJ in the LCMS wondered about UOJ, which is more common in WELS. All four terms listed above are additions to the Bible and to the Book of Concord.

Proponents have become more extreme in the last decades. "I am saved, just like you" was the theme of a WELS evangelism program during the Wayne Mueller years. I don't own a pair of beer goggles that make Univeralistic statements like that go from "Bow!" to "Wow!"

Most UOJ Stormtroopers admit there is no UOJ in the Book of Concord. UOJ is also Missing in Action in Robert Preus' last book, Justification and Rome. In fact, he said the only justification was justification by faith.
