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 Faith of Jesus: Against the Faithless Lutherans

The Faith of Jesus: Against the Faithless Lutherans
Cover by Norma Boeckler
Writing work will finish at the end of September, with Reformation Sunday as the goal for print copies to arrive for those who helped sponsor the book.

The cover says "edited" because several have participated in working on the book.

The Faith of Jesus: Against the Faithless Lutherans
The first phrase is significant. Others must think so, because the New KJV changes the faith of Jesus (original Greek text and KJV) into faith in Jesus. The rest of the translations do the same thing.

Romans 322 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: KJV

The rest have faith in Jesus Christ, except this one -

American King James Version
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ to all and on all them that believe: for there is no difference:



Against the Faithless Lutherans
I discussed the subtitle with one expert writer and Biblical scholar. We agreed that "Faithless Lutherans" conveyed the most in the fewest words. Those who promote universal forgiveness and salvation - without faith - are faithless in both senses. They have no faith in the Word of God, and they are not faithful to their calling or their ordination vows.

Like the ELCA, which they overtly despise and covertly emulate, the so-called conservative Lutheran leaders teach a cowardly form of Universalism. They are all "confessional" Lutherans, although few of them can explain the basic elements of Biblical doctrine.

This book will describe the basics of Christianity, the sordid history of UOJ, and the proper way to teach the Scriptural passages. Finally, an extensive review of the blasphemous Emmaus 2015 essay is included, refuting point by point.
