Call Off the Reformation - "All Are Justified,
That Is All You Need To Know for Reformation."
WELS Joins Mainline Apostates in Universalism

Herman Otten loves Brug's UOJ dogma.

WELS Seminary Professor John Brug said at a Reformation service -

"All are justified. That's all you need to know for Reformation."

Where did he get this?

Not the classic NIV, as they call it -

His text was Romans 3:23-25.


Old NIV


22 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 

24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 
25 God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished-- 

New NIV

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all [GJ - the second all is missing in the Greek text, missing in the KJV, missing in the old NIV] are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[i]through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished



Forrest Bivens, above, is another champion of UOJ.
He famously bragged about going to Fuller Seminary at the Midland Circuit Meeting,
then denied ever going there.
Valleskey did the same in reverse, denying his Fuller studies,
later bragging about it to CLC Pastor David Koenig -
Horst Gutsche's good friend.



King James Version
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
