|Jack Cascione quoted this with approval, as Robert Preus once did, to prove to everyone that Preus taught UOJ.|
My point was clear - Preus once taught UOJ but rejected the dogma in Justification and Rome.
Two things are clear:
- The LCMS, WELS, and ELS will continue to make justification without faith their central dogma.
- They will tell any lie to disguise what they really believe, teach, and confess.
The so-called Lutherans could have hired me to teach in their institutions of higher education. I am more qualified than most of their faculties. That is the beauty of the parochial system - someone with the right family connections can be hired to teach at a college or seminary, without any credentials. The current ELS pope, John Moldstad, was hired to teach New Testament without having a bachelor's degree. Larry Olson calls himself "Dr." by virtue of a drive-by D.Min. from Fuller Seminary. Jay Webber was "rector" of the Marvin Schwan UOJ Gospel Lighthouse. Roger Kovaciny, who claimed to be a founder of Church Growth in WELS, served on the faculty, as the Floyd Stolzenburg Professor of Church Growth.
Not one of these men is qualified to teach as an adjunct professor anywhere else but their little parochial schools.
Tim Glende argued that he was infallible by virtue of his EIGHT STRAIGHT YEARS OF EDUCATION, when he was in the process of excommunicating Rick Techlin. Did I mention - TIM STUDIED GREEK!
The solution to the Appleton offense would be to hire me to teach at Martin Luther College, Bethany College, The Sausage Factory, or The Little Schoolhouse on the Prairie. Why didn't they? John Brenner had to take a year of remedial education before he could be admitted to the UW graduate program - after he was hired to teach at Mequon. Brug has a doctorate in Hebrew, so they gave him the yellowed lecture notes of J. P. Meyer and made him dogmatics professor too. That would never happen at an accredited school, where people have to be formally trained in the discipline they teach.
Apart from studying at Fuller Seminary, Bivens and Valleskey had no other education beyond their seminary program. The same could be said for many of the pivotal positions in the WELS and ELS. The most unifying educational factor in the WELS, ELS, and LCMS is study at Fuller Seminary. That is also the best way to get promoted.
|Infallible synod popes - Harrison, Schroeder, Moldstad.|
Justification by faith offends them.
Lutheran Doctrine Professor, Synodical Conference
My role is to teach the non-Lutherans of the Synodical Conference, a much bigger challenge than teaching Lutheran doctrine at online universities, where the students respect the professors. They thank me for posting Gerhardt hymns, for quoting Luther, for emphasizing the efficacy of the Word.
Lutherans need to admit to themselves that SP Harrison, SP Schroeder, and SP Moldstad are not Lutheran. All three men reject justification by faith, no matter what they protest to cover their tracks. They have no concept of the efficacy of the Word, so they do not trust God's Word to accomplish His will - contrary to Isaiah 55 and many other passages.
Harrison, Schroeder, and Moldstad are unable to teach the Means of Grace, although they may toy with the words from time to time. So does the real Pope in Rome. Roman Catholics teach the Means of Grace, but read the fine print. The three Synod Popes are just bad imitations of Holy Father Antichrist. They are the little Antichrists of Scripture, aiding and abetting, small potatoes.
Discipline for Harrison, Schroeder, and Moldstad does not mean condemning impenitent sinners and false teachers, but condemning and expelling those who question their infallibility.
What did Harrison do when it was proven that LCMS District Presidents put a known sex offender into the pastoral office and kept him there to rape again? Harrison silenced his robotic followers - and they fell into stupefied silence, content to let more sex offenders have their way in the ministerial office. Will Harrson back the lawsuit of the Pennsylvania victim of child abuse? The man has an eye-witness who saw it happen, but that witness is a famous professor. Missouri's policy is to destroy evidence, as the lawsuit points out.
Will Missouri, WELS, and the ELS give back their Marvin Schwan indulgence commissions, since they know the truth about his "Scriptural divorce"? No, their hands are stretched out for more.
|Short version - make up whatever you want, because the Confessions approve!|
From Pastor Nathan Bickel:
Count it God's blessing that you were never asked or called to teach higher education in Lutheran synodical schools. [Else if it had turned out for you, as such, Lutheran UOJ (universal objective justification) inbreeding may have taken its toll upon you, also]
The good Lord apparently had other plans for you, - that being, teaching heathen and non-Lutherans. Despised in Lutheran circles as you must be, should be no shame [for you]. Rather, it is the mark of the suffering Christ. Did He not say:
"Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." - Luke 6:26
Dr. Jackson - be content with the prophetic ministry the Lord has apparently laid upon your Arkansas backwoods [often rejected] lap......
