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

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?
