Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to three African seminaries -
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
I fail to see the humor. There are mis-representations galore. This Jackson fella; He makes the claim on his blog and in the video that Robert Preus repudiated objective justification. Where is the citation for this claim?
It is in the Preus' book 'Justification and Rome'. Preus sites old Lutherans and the quotation from them are denials of UOJ.
It is denial by default - that is by quoting the statements of orthodox Lutherans involved in the BoC. One has to have a wild perverted imagination to read UOJ in to the statements of Calov or Quenstedt etc.
Yes , I
have read it and my copy is filled with notes. If Preus intended to promote UOJ
then he should have not used quotes from orthodox Lutherans that question or put
the teaching in to doubt.
Dr, Jackson made pictures of these quotes and
let me give you an example... In p. 131 #74 quoting Calov - "Although Christ
has acquired for us the remission of sins, justification and sonship, God just
the same does not justify us prior to faith..."
This runs roughshod
against the LC-MS Brief Statement 1932 Article 17 which says that God has
declared the whole world ALREADY righteous in Christ.
