I once mentioned to a certain WELS pastor that studying something from the Book of Concord would be a good idea. My suggestion was met with an uncomfortable smirk and a shake of the head. Yet, this same pastor hosted a public viewing of "Fireproof Your Marriage" from Sherwood Babtist church. There are so many so-called Lutheran pastors who simply believe that the laity are incapable of understanding anything from the Lutheran Confessions. Or is it that they are afraid that the laity would understand the Confessions and take them to heart?
GJ - The SynConference pastors do not know the Book of Concord.
In another similar situation, the WELS pastor said, "The Book of Concord is boring and irrelevant."
The Missouri and WELS pastors like everyone dancing around the footnotes, never getting to the real issues:
- What did Walther mean by "church"?
- Some notes on our glorious history.
- Remember our dogmatics notes? Here they are again.
SP Harrison sold Minnesota South down the river. The first thing I saw on "Steadfast" was post on what a great leader he was.
