|Not Madam Mueller, but WELS Pastor Adam Mueller,|
where children are encouraged to put women's makeup
on the pastor and church council members.
From WELS Pastor Steve Spencer:
|Notice the name change in WELS, from Adult Education to Adult Discipleship.|
These four blokes are only part of the Mark Jeske Mob.
According to Slick Brenner, Wayne Mueller was pushed out of teaching at the Sausage Factory because of his Reformed doctrine. (Ditto Joel Gerlach) So WELS gave Wayne a big raise and put him in charge of Perish Services (aka proven methods of killing Lutheran doctrine and worship). When Wayne was promoted again to First VP (hefty salary), he was replaced by Bruce Becker (drive-by DMin), who now works openly with Mark Jeske.
When Wayne Mueller took over Perish Services, he immediately changed two job titles: Youth Education became Youth Discipleship. Adult Education became Adult Discipleship. The word disciple is pivotal for the Church Shrinkage Movement, which hectors people to "make disciples who make disciples" instead of preaching the Gospel of justification by faith and administering the Sacraments. Church Shrinkage has always assumed the cell group model of Pietism, and WELS has trampled over the other sects in rushing into Fuller's world and chasing the mirages with a vengeance.
|ELCA went from women's ordination to gay ordination|
to women running all the schools. Here is the first woman to head a dying seminary.
WELS is eager to follow ELCA.
I decided to study adult education methods for a master's degree. What really matters is the content, and that has been heavily skewed to the left, ever since FDR's presidency. The Church Shrinkers work exactly like the Leftists in politics. They have the same methods and want to reverse everything with the same mindless passion.
I remember seeing the LCMS Michigan District's committee name - Evangelism and Church Growth. Aha, we do not want people to think of Evangelism being The Gospel, but Evangelism meaning the doctrinal content of Fuller Seminary pea-brains and hot-air merchants. The Fuller disciples do make Fuller disciples. The Lutherans (even ELCA) have spent millions at Fuller Seminary, Willow Creek, and Trinity Divinity School.
Therefore, esteemed alumni of Fuller, WC, and Trinity have the same mocking attitude toward Lutheran doctrine and worship that their mentors exude. James Huebner (Wayne Muller.2) is another Fuller devotee who has mocked the efficacy of the Word in his sad, confused publications, but he is First VP anyway. And he often leads people down the dark pathways he has trod - Adult Discipleship.
Why are so many conferences held throughout WELS? There is a constant effort to drum the ideology of Mark Jeske, Paul Kelm, and Larry Olson into every remaining noggin in the sect. They should hurry, because WELS will not last much longer under the current leadership.
WELS is an interesting study because of its small size and lust for brain-dead conformity. Missouri pastors can always point to their alternative groups and lobbies, but they are traveling down the same well-greased road.
Missouri will end up like the Episcopal Church, lots of money in the vault, very few members in church.
|"We love the diversity that agrees with our iron-fisted rule."|
Episcopal and Lutheran motto.
