I will soon show that WELS deliberately altered their own teaching materials to remove justification by faith and replace it with universal absolution. They did this dishonestly, deceitfully, stealthily, and cowardly.
That cult-like action allowed them to move forward with their ecumenical activities, which have accelerated ever since.
UOJ gave them permission, in a manner of speaking, to train their leaders and missionaries at Fuller Seminary.
UOJ fueled their virtual union with Missouri and the ELCA predecessors (at first), all other religions and cults now, with Thrivent doling out the cash.
UOJ allowed WELS to sell indulgences to Marvin Schwan for abandoning his wife, the mother of his children, for his mistress. Mrs. Schwan committed suicide and left a note? Marvin was forgiven before he was born.
Amazing grace, how sweet a sound, that saved the entire world - DP Jon Buchholz.
