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

More WELS Discipline, So Put Down Your Coffee, Stow Sharp Objects, Take a Deep Breath

Old witticism: An ecumenist is someone who loves every confession of faith except his own. That is a perfect description of WELS and the Little Sect on the Prairie.

Promoted via the official SP Schroeder newsletter and on the WELS websty:

Fourth Estate, a student publication of the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, Wis., featured an article on the student organization Christ Living Among Students, a group affiliated with St. Mark, De Pere, Wis.


GJ - The SP newsletter promoted the Church and Change feminist conference, so he was reported to be unhappy that this happened while he was in India. As everyone knows, the subcontinent of India does not have computers, just call centers.

Perhaps he was in Borneo, trying to find that wise guy MLC student who posted recently on Ichabod.

You can't make this stuff up! This is the problem with false doctrine and practice that is condoned and pardoned - discernment based on God's Word and the Lutheran Confessions goes right out the window and the only way for them to keep it quiet is to jam a sock in their mouths. Without the sock firmly lodged they expose it all for the world to see and hear.

"CLAS and St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church are affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. WELS was formed 150 years ago by three German pastors. WELS believes in the Holy Trinity and the teachings of Martin Luther.

Although CLAS is affiliated with WELS, the organization is open to students of differing religious beliefs.

"We are not an exclusive group, but we hold fast to our beliefs and teachings based on God's word," Mike Hennig, the staff minister, said.

Hennig became the staff minister for CLAS after the regular pastor left the organization to lead the campus ministry at UW-Milwaukee four years ago. Hennig said he is a staff minister because he enjoys working with college students and feels leading the organization was the best use of his abilities.

Karina Radue, president of CLAS, became interested in the organization because the people share the same beliefs as her.

"They will always be a group I can turn to in good times and bad times," Radue said.

Some members of CLAS use the organization as a way to go to church when they normally cannot.

"Church has always been in my daily routine since I was young," Amber Pulvermacher, vice president of CLAS, said. "CLAS allowed me to meet new people and worship at the same time."

Nice ecumenical worship the (W)ELS is fostering. Wait, I thought the (W)ELS said the Staff Ministry program wasn't producing Pastors! Yet, staff minister Mike Hennig is conducting worship services with multi denominational attendees. Last I counted there were 72 women in the (W)ELS staff ministry program. That's allot of pastors!

Forgot to quote the (W)ELS "rim shot"

CLAS meetings are held every Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Ecumenical Center.

Thank you, I'll be lurking here all week!
