the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation,
at a special ceremony attended by several dozen members.
Brett Meyer has left a new comment on your post "As Predicted - Another Quitter - Or the Same Quitt...":
Interesting how when each Church Growth apostle attacks Ichabod they always attack Baptism, Holy Communion and the Holy Spirit's work through the efficacious Word. This last coward was the same way, mocking Baptism as though it was one way to damage Ichabod. What a shame and disgrace. Out of the fullness of their hearts they speak and act. It greatly clarifies the stated problems when they openly attack. It exposes their false doctrine and practice for anyone willing to test it against Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions (also funny to see how the false teachers and mini wolves hate to read anything of length and complexity ~ Luther or the Lutheran Confessions).
GJ - One of my regular readers said my posts made him angry, but he had to agree I was right when he read the comments.
I probably post more antagonistic comments than any other Lutheran blogger. The opponents prove my case. I linked Church and Change, but they do not link me. I link The CORE, and St. Peter's Freedom, CrossWalk, Willowcreek's Little College, Mary Lou College, The Sausage Factory, and many other sites. They do not reciprocate.
I am only too happy to quote people and refute them, offering their original links. Most prefer to attack anonymousely.

Posting comments from readers of blogs serves a similar purpose as letters to the editor. Both serve as thermometers indicating the health of the respective body (institution) under discussion.
I recall instances where the WELS and ELS magazines have deliberately falsified letters to blunt a point made or to twist the original point. When a layman asked Moldstad about UOJ, the letter became headlined as "How can someone question UOJ and call himself a Christian?" I know the layman who wrote the letter.
When a pest-blogger states the same thing repeatedly, to borrow a readership he has not developed, lacking both skill and wit, I block the comment.
Several failed blogs tried to prove UOJ, but those comments are gone now. I did notice the fake Ichabod still trying to promote UOJ. Did I mention the UOJ Stormtroopers are all Shrinkers? On the same page the fake Ichabod whines about the liar Valleskey being picked on. When Valleskey is done with UOJ, Law and Gospel, the tangled threads of his thought are best left alone - what a mess.
Here is the UOJ post. <--Mequon grads, left-click.
The fake, who is too scared to list his name, cites DP Buchholz at length. Buchholz is halfway there. At least he acknowledges the Means of Grace. He is still an Enthusiast because he separates the Holy Spirit from the Word.
Joe Krohn, a Church and Change fellow traveler, has posted his objections to UOJ.
Extra Nos quoted Krohn with approval. I think Joe is still stuck on the OJ/SJ categories, which were invented by Woods translating Knapp, but he has seen the basic problems.
Perhaps the Stormtroopers will take him to a re-education camp and enlighten him until he recants. I have seen that happen on LutherQuest (sic) with Heidenreich - really pitiful.
