I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

If Walther Had It Right, Why Does the Harrison-Led LCMS Work with ELCA?

bruce-church ( has left a new comment on your post "Not Mixed with Faith":

Two LCMS pastors say that the LCMS has been on the defensive the last 100 years due to all the false doctrine in America. What I think is that God determined that UOJ was such bad doctrine, he had to figure out a way to contain it to a few million people at most. First, he caused its most ardent adherent to move to the New World, and then cause UOJ to die in the Old World (no one outside the synodical conference believes in UOJ anymore), and now he's causing the LCMS and ELS to shrink and age, with the WELS shrinking less, but it's membership is aging, I believe. (That's one stat the synods don't like to keep.) The WELS always follows Missouri by 20 or 30 years, so any time now it will probably start shrinking a lot. I'm sure God's containment and shrinking philosophy is right on schedule:
