The truth is revealed in the Word of God, confessed by the faithful,
handed down to each generation.
I have provided two sets of quotations below, so people can do their own research. The quotations are not in the best of order, but that will be fixed later in Luther Against the Pietists. It is important to document as much as possible. Previously, the UOJ quotations in Thy Strong Word rattled the graduates of Ft. Wayne, who thought UOJ was simply another name for the Atonement. In his UOJ era, Robert Preus himself said no to that notion. Once things flared up in WELS and Misouri, UOJ leaders tried to avoid the issues.
Tentative tentative title - Justification By Faith: Luther Against the Pietists. Advice is welcome.
WELS has consistently lied about the Kokomo Statements, three of which are almost verbatim from their own seminary professor, J. P. Meyer, Ministers of Christ. Sig Becker admitted that in writing, but the lie continues to be told.
UOJ comes from the Enthusiasm of Pietism, which is asserting itself again in the Church Shrinkage Movement. The final belch of Shrinkage (we can always hope) is Emerging Church, which is even more focused on Pietistic goals and methods - being relevant, transforming lives, creating holiness through cell groups.
