Money! Benjamins! Those are all the reasons needed for Missouri to swallow the hair-ball called WELS.
The only ones who should rejoice over the LCMS-WELS-ELS bedfellows are those hordes of pastors and leaders who have attended Fuller Seminary together.
Those LCMS pastors who have actually read Luther and the Book of Concord have no use for UOJ, Church Growth, and women's ordination. However, Missouri is just as overbuilt as the big shopping malls were when the Obama Depression hit America.
Post-War Boomer churches were built and expanded in the 1950s. Few are doing well today, and their buildings are decaying - roofs, furnaces, tuckpoint.
Higher education has been expanded in buildings and tuition, but interest has drooped when an undergraduate degree costs $100,000 and seminary even more.
