Lito Cruz I am puzzled with the point Rolf is making against Webber because in UOJ every one is already forgiven even without faith or prior to faith, so if you have been forgiven without faith on anything, then you are still forgiven even if you believe in false doctrine of women's ordination. Since you are saved without faith, you're saved with or without it in the future. Rolf and Webber remind me of two atheists I saw who were in conflict with one another.
Keith Shedron A fine point has been made on LQ. Rolf claims that Jack Kilcrease is a "good theologian", yet Kilcrease teaches at ILT. And Webber is attacked, by Rolf, for taking a degree from ILT. Hhmmm... But this takes the focus off the central error that they all hold, which is an anti-sacramental, faithless justification, apart from any imputation of the righteousness of Christ.

- Opposing justification by faith while promoting universal forgiveness and salvation without faith - as the Gospel.
- Inviting false teachers to their schools while excommunicating faithful pastors.
- Openly mocks the truth of the Scriptures and considers the Bible to be mythical.
- Supports abortion and funds abortion (for any reason) in its health plan.
- Ordains and marries homosexuals - but then, so do Missouri, WELS, and the ELS.
- Ordains women - but so do Missouri, WELS, and the ELS. Women consecrate the elements, baptize, you name it. WELS' Brug - that is fine, but WELS is not ready for an open declaration yet.
- Sits on the lap of the Antichrist, the Pope, and begs that terms of reconciliation be kind and gentle.
