1 Samuel 4:11 And the ark of God was taken ; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain . 
12 And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army,and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothes rent , and with earth upon his head. 
13 And when he came , lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside * *watching : for his heart trembled for the ark of God. And when the man came into the city, and told it, all the city cried out . 
14 And when Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said , What meaneth the noise of this tumult? And the man came in hastily , and told Eli. 
15 Now Eli was ninety and eight years old;and his eyes were dim , that he could not see . 
16 And the man said unto Eli,I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And hesaid , What is there done, my son? 
17 And the messenger answered andsaid , Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas,are dead , and the ark of God is taken . 
18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake , and he died : for he was an old man,and heavy . And he had judged Israel forty years. 
19 And his daughter in law,Phinehas' wife, was with child, near to be delivered : and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken , and that her father in law and her husband were dead , she bowed herself and travailed ; for her pains came upon her. 
20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard * it. 
21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying , The glory has departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken , and because of her father in law and her husband.

The boring blogs - LutherQuest, Steadfast Lutherans, and ALPB Online Forum - expending vast quantities of digital bits, are silent about the alleged Matt Harrison lawsuit.

A Missouri Synod pastor has reported that his members received the information by mail, so the story is out, whether true or not. The accusation should be resolved.


The LCMS began in scandal.



Missouri apologists say, "The kids wanted to go,
so Walther was justified."
