Pastor Gregory L. Jackson's Author's Page

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

Making Disciples Booklet - Illustrated by Norma Boeckler - Finished Today

One layman caught onto the modern fanaticism of "making disciples" in the Great Commission. That has been the raspberry seed in my wisdom tooth for many years.

A reader was really surprised by the WELS fanaticism about "disciples." That is the key term in the Pietistic Church Growth Movement, just as UOJ is the dogma uniting all the elements of Church Growth. See the update posted today - mentioning The Next Disciple.

Jay Webber claimed he did not see the UOJ-Church Growth connection. But that exculpatory remark comes from someone who makes a move toward Luther's Galatians Commentary and runs away from it like it's a mosquito from South America.

For the majority of Lutheran clergy who have never cracked the spine of Luther's Galatians Commentary - the book is simply saturated with justification by faith statements. But most pastors are content to say, "I have never seen a unicorn (the commentary, the Book of Concord, Luther's Sermons), so unicorns must not exist."
