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

The CLC (sic) Thanks God They Are Not Like the Other Church Growth False-Teaching, Thrivent Selling Sects.
But They Are Worse

The Scribe and the Pharisee, by Dore.

Pastors Paul Nol ng, Bruce Naumann, and I met with the WELS/ELS representives on April
17th on the ILC campus. The discussions again focused on what Scripture teaches regarding the terminati on of fellowship, and in par cular, the terminati on of fellowship with false-teaching church bodies. 

I thank the Lord for the opportunity. I believe the talks were fruitful
and I am hopeful that at our next mee ting in Mankato at the end of August final wording of a
joint document on this issue can be agreed upon. The prayer of all is that the Spirit would
bring about God-pleasing fellowship based on full agreement on the doctrines of Scripture. I
am encouraged by the meeti ngs we have had. Of course, much lies ahead. If there is
agreement on the doctrine of termina tion of fellowship, a number of other matters of doctrine
and practi ce, such as the proper Scriptural view and approach toward fraternal faith-based
groups like Thrivent need to be thoroughly discussed and agreed upon by all the bodies in
their Conven tions before fellowship could be restored. I and the other committee members
welcome your comments. However, as I have men tioned before, please refrain from using
Clergytalk to express your thoughts.

Like the CLC (sic), WELS has no problem with convicted pastors.
