So it took but a short five years after Gausewitz' death for Missouri to establish its Brief Statement, introducing UOJ formally, no longer under the watchful eye of the President of the Synodical Conference.
GJ - Good point, Mr. Klatt. I am just starting to realize how significant Gausewitz was - as a WELS leader and Synodical Conference leader. I wonder if Gausewitz suppressed UOJ while he was around.
Gausewitz was already a forgotten man when I joined WELS. John Seifert bragged up the Kuske Talmudic Catechism. I remember reading the Fredrich essay when I was at Mequon. Two things increased my interest in Gausewitz. One was the initial analysis sent to me by someone in WELS. The second was a WELS layman saying he was confirmed in WELS with the Gausewitz catechism by one of the older pastors at that time.
The 1932 Brief Statement was a F. Pieper project, and the other brief statements did not mention UOJ.
Of course, Luther's Small Catechism has no UOJ in it - no hint of it. To overturn justification by faith and install Fuller doctrine was a monumental achievement. More needs to be known about this.
Remember, readers, that the architect of Seminex and board member of Seminex was Jungkuntz, who was hotter than Georgia asphalt for UOJ.
He was a Seminex leader and board member of the rebel Seminex school.
