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 3Even 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.
