Dummies Explain How Dumb Their Students Are

Bivens thinks Universal Absolution without Faith
is the Chief Article of the Christian Religion -
and he blames the educational system?


A question and response from the 2015 Vol.12 Preach the Gospel: A Magazine of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.

In an article entitled: "Brug & Bivens, Transition to Retirement" (page 6), the following question and response is noted.

Question:   Have students changed over the years?

Brug:  Students don't read today like in the past. Many don't have a broad grasp of history and and literature and culture. They have difficulty writing with a fine style. The decline of reading has affected our students in a negative way.

Bivens:  Profs can't make the assumption about broad knowledge--whether it's Bible knowledge or English literature or history. We can't use classical allusions in the classroom. No one will get it. It's not the students fault. It's culture, our education.

Brug managed to write The Ministry of the Word
without mentioning the efficacy of the Word
(Genesis, John, Luther, Book of Concord, Isaiah, etc)

WELS men are more interested in cross-dressing than Greek.
At least they haven't videotaped It's Raining Men -
or have they?
