Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to three African seminaries -
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
“Only one woman had the unique privilege to call Jesus her son,” notes Rev. Mike Hintz, director of WELS Commission on Evangelism. “WELS’ newest outreach movie, My Son, My Savior, portrays Mary experiencing the miracle of Jesus’ coming and then humbly growing in her understanding that her son is also her Savior.”
Synod convention delegates had the opportunity to view a trailer for My Son, My Savior. The movie, which was filmed in late May and early June, is scheduled to be released in October so that it can be used for outreach during Advent.
Dr. Daniel Ebeling, a teacher delegate representing the Southeastern Wisconsin District, says, “I’m particularly excited about the outreach opportunities My Son, My Savior can provide. I’m looking forward to seeing the other resources that are being prepared to help us utilize the movie.”
Some Nother Fund-Raising Campaign
One layman said there was a new fund-raising campaign announced, so WELS can do more.
The layman said, "They need more money to close more congregations and schools, and do it faster."
I hastened to add that closing a church and keeping the equity is a choice racket. The members bear the burden of debt payments and interest that the sect collects. Then, when the land and buildings have gained in value, the sect liquidates and keeps the profits, which came from the disbanded members.
That is how Glende turned a successful church into nothing in Illinois.
An education at Martin Luther College will transform young men into transvestites. Give more, give with your heart, so they can buy better tutus.
