Pastor emeritus Nathan Bickel has left a new comment on your post "How Can They Deny Justification by Faith?":
Yes. Thank you! Your reply jogged my memory recall. You are absolutely spot on.
Last June 1, 2012, I illustrated what you say about "universal objective justification" being taught in synodical schools, with the following:
"UOJ in the Schools:"
Nathan M. Bickel
GJ - Earlier, as Papenfuss admitted to the Kokomo families, UOJ was only taught at the Sausage Factory in Mequon. They moved the UOJ down to the lowest levels.
Likewise, UOJ was not taught in the SynCon catechisms at first. The laity and pastors were perhaps too alert to be fooled by that dogma.
Always taught, hmm? Just like the Assumption and Immaculate Conception of Mary? (Roman Catholic claim) Where is UOJ in The Lutheran Hymnal?
Early German catechism of the Missouri Synod? No UOJ.
Original Gausewitz - the catechism for the entire Synodical Conference? No UOJ.
KJV catechism - still being sold by the LCMS? No UOJ.
But Paul McCain, Jack Cascione, and the Preus siblings pound people with their UOJ.
