I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Why Drop the Name Lutheran?






Norman Teigen has left a new comment on your post "The FIC Church and Chicanery Count: March Issue":

I think that WELZ is the only Lutheran synod that does not include the word 'Lutheran' in the title of the official house organ. I am thinking of: The Lutheran, The Lutheran Witness, The Lutheran Sentinel.

Why is this so?

GJ - Norm and readers - if you look at my stealth list on the left - The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name - you will find many examples from the Church and Chicaneries.

Lyle Schaller and other experts have advised them that denominational labels are a downer for the I-hate-church group targeted by Becoming Missional or Emerging Church. The targeted people need bad Rock and Roll music and gourmet coffee, but no confessional identity.

Why do you think that Ski's sandbox is called The CORE? The really trendy folks get rid of the church name, too.

No one really objected when the change was being made by the Changers. You could have heard an ant wetting cotton during the debate, because there was none. The Conference of Pussycats blinked once or twice and took another nap, dreaming of another Schwan to come along.
