Narrow-minded Lutheran has left a new comment on your post "Cell Groups Are Also a Reliable Litmus Test for Pi...":
So I guess if I have a heart attack in the future, I should request ahead of time that the EMT open me up on the way to the hospital to see what's wrong. Why wait to get to the hospital for the cardiac specialist? This is not to say that the EMT's vocation is not God-pleasing, but he's not a cardiac specialist. Since my comments regarding small groups in the below thread are "baseless," this would seem to be a analogous scenario.
I feel sorry for someone who is not "satisfied" by Word and Sacrament; however, I will concede that finding such a parish is becoming increasingly difficult. On the other hand, in congruence with American consumerism, churches sell what most people are wanting in a church: Moralistic therapeutic deism.
