Effects of UOJ Today



Brett Meyer has left a new comment on your post "New Hymn To Universalism:Conceived in the CLC (sic...":

How much further can the synods fall into error?

It's become a subjective measurement. They've completely destroyed the central doctrine of Christ's Word, Justification by Faith Alone, with their false gospel of Universal Objective Justification.

The Chief Article of Christian faith, Justification, the one doctrine which if confessed faithfully to Scripture you are saved eternally, and if you pervert it in any aspect you are condemned, has been perverted by all Lutheran Synods.

There are now no organizations of churches which teach as their official doctrine Justification by Faith Alone as Scripture clearly teaches and the Lutheran Confessions correctly explain. They all teach Justification by Works Righteousness or Justification by a Righteousness without and before the Means of Grace, God's Word and Baptism.

With the Chief Article perverted there will be no end to their progressive apostasy and blasphemy - all while claiming to be Christians.

The Lutheran Confessions:

6]"Let any one of the adversaries come forth and tell us when remission of sins takes place. O good God, what darkness there is! They doubt whether it is in attrition or in contrition that remission of sins occurs. And if it occurs on account of contrition, what need is there of absolution, what does the power of the keys effect, if sins have been already remitted?"

"But when it is said that faith justifies, some perhaps understand it of the beginning, namely, that faith is the beginning of justification or preparation for justification, so that not faith itself is that through which we are accepted by God,"

48] "The adversaries feign that faith is only a knowledge of the history, and therefore teach that it can coexist with mortal sin. Hence they say nothing concerning faith, by which Paul so frequently says that men are justified, because those who are accounted righteous before God do not live in mortal sin."

The Defense of the Augsburg Confession What Is Justifying Faith?, 48] "The adversaries
feign that faith is only a knowledge of the history, and therefore teach that it can coexist
with mortal sin. Hence they say nothing concerning faith, by which Paul so frequently
says that men are justified, because those who are accounted righteous before God do
not live in mortal sin."

Martin Luther
"As before said, they regard faith of slight importance; for they do not understand that it is our sole justifier. To accept as true the record of Christ--this they call faith. The devils have the same sort of faith, but it does not make them godly. Such belief is not Christian faith; no, it is rather deception." And here, "You see how they make faith of no value to themselves, and so must regard as heresy all doctrine based upon it. Thus they do away with the whole Gospel. These are they who deny the Christian faith and exterminate it from the world.

Paul prophesied concerning them when he said (1 Tim 4, 1): "In later times some shall fall away from the faith." The voice of faith is now silenced all over the world. Indeed, faith is condemned and banished as the worst heresy, and all who teach and endorse it are condemned with it. The Pope, the bishops, charitable institutions, cloisters, high schools, unanimously opposed it for nearly four hundred years, and simply drove the world violently into hell. Their conduct is the real persecution by Antichrist, in the last times."

"Note, faith justifies the individual; faith is justification. Because of faith God remits all sins, and forgives the old Adam and the Cain in our nature, for the sake of Christ his beloved Son, whose name faith represents."

"You cannot extricate yourself from unbelief, nor can the Law do it for you. All your works in intended fulfillment of the Law must remain works of the Law and powerless to justify in the sight of God, who regards as just only believing children."

The Pope, the bishops, charitable institutions, cloisters, high schools, the Lutheran Synods unanimously oppose the faith of the Holy Spirit, and are driving the world violently into hell. Their conduct is the real persecution by Antichrist, in the last times.

GJ - No one can destroy the doctrine, which will remain true if no one on earth believed it. The synods and their learned leaders have not only departed from justification by faith - they have actively and dishonestly taught against it, substituting a cowardly version of Universalism and calling it the true Gospel.
