Luther Bunker can rest assured that while he's wasting his time on Ichabod reading each post for relevance, The CORE (a flagship (W)ELS Emergent church) is eating wings for Jesus.
[GJ - Preview - kiddie envelopes for The CORE. Eating wings for Jesus. Lots of Church and Change promotions - Jeske, Jeske, and more Jeske. I thought Jon-Boy Buchholz was going to excommunicate Mark and Avoid Jeske.]
Not good enough - try these quotes from a (W)ELS church preached to the public:
Jesus’ epiphany will include not only his baptism, at which he was pointed out publicly by his Father in heaven. Not only will it include his preaching and healing in his ministry. It also includes his last trip to Jerusalem when he would allow himself to be arrested by his enemies, put on trial, and put to death on the cross. It would include his payment for your sin there. It includes the suffering and death that you deserved, which you will never have to face eternally in hell because of how he has paid your price and… SAVED you! God is a Saver, and showed it in Christ’s epiphany.
Justified – Many of you have probably learned about this word already. It’s a court room term. “Not guilty!” is the verdict that is pronounced. In God’s court we stand innocent only because our Savior has taken our sin and guilt on himself. [GJ - They are hiding their UOJ in the passive voice, is pronounced. Who, when, and how many?]
There’s a popular book today called “The Purpose Driven Life,” which has much to say about the Christian life – and some of it pretty good material.
Here is the link for the WELS sermon.
|He needs to be porpoise-driven.|
Rick Warren, a Schuller/Fuller disciple, teaches the necessity of works for salvation.
