Bill Cosby may be found guilty of molesting young women under the influence of drugs. If he is, will the Missouri Synod revise its official history and admit their Founder, Bishop Martin Stephan, did something far worse - as a Pietist guru - using the Christian Faith to seduce and maintain a stable of young women who ended up sharing his syphilis. Stephan told his main mistress that he was in charge of her body as well as her spiritual life.
The Great Kidnapper, CFW Walther, covered up for Bishop Stephan and enforced the tyranny of his leader. The clergy leaders knew Stephan was an adulterer, because Stephan took his mistress along, conveniently near his cabin, while leaving his dying wife and children at home in Dresden.

Harrison - Nunes - Therwanger-Tatone
Christian News received a report that Rev. Harold L. Therwanger, the Senior Pastor of First Immanuel Lutheran Church, Chicago, who had served as Fourth Vice President of the LCMS’s Northern Illinois District, publicly announced to his congregation that he intended to wed his same sex partner. CN asked him “Do you have a same-sex partner you intend to ‘wed’?” Therwanger has not responded.
CN asked Rev. Dan Gilbert, President of the Northern Illinois District on May 18: “CN is contacting Therwanger and Valparaiso University Professor Dr. John Nunes, an associate pastor of Therwanger’s, who is reported to have heard the announcement when Therwanger made his intentions known to his congregation. CN was told that already years ago you excused Therwanger’s participationin the gay games bysaying ‘well that’s just Harry.’” CN received an automatic reply on May 18 from Gilbert which said: “I will be away from the office for work with the Lutheran Church in Norway, God willing, until May 18.”
The LCMS’s 2016 Lutheran Annual on p. 443 shows Therwagen, and senior administration pastor of First Immanuel, and Dr. John Nunes on p. 394, as serving at First Immanuel. The Lutheran Annual says that First Immanuel has 225 baptized members and an average attendance of 110. A pastor in the Northern Illinois District told CN that while Therwanger is no longer in the LCMS the responsible officials are so far allowing the congregation to remain in the LCMS and have taken no action vs. Nunes.
|Therwanger - 12th place at the Gay Games.|
|Greenbay fan Voss seems less than thrilled with Scott Barefoot.|
|Scott Barefoot and SP Mark Schroeder.|
Natalie Pratt always said Scott was a self-important jerk.
so it is strange she invited him to Luther Days.
Please join Pastor Richard Starr and Scott Barefoot for an exciting day of presentations and displays! Both Pastor Starr and Scott will be giving presentations on the subject of SSA - Homosexuality. Come visit the People of Grace display booth. Also, Pastor Starr and Scott will be doing a book signing of their book: "Forgive Us Our Sins: Homosexuality In The Light Of God's Truth". Copies of the book will be available there that day by Northwestern Publishing House! Here is some additional Information and links to the Luther Days website:
1. 75 Presenters with a 100 presentations & workshops.
The Answers to the Issues Mentioned in This CN Edition Are Unpalatable to Otten and the LCMS
1. Disengage entirely from Thrivent, its pro-abortion, pan-sexual, and unionistic secular practices. Besides, it is not a very good company to force on Lutherans.
2. Break all ties with ELCA.
3. Adopt one flavor of the KJV so all the Lutheran synods are using and memorizing similar language, a precise translation - like the KJV 21 - rather than a surfer-dude paraphrase.
4. Stop selling and promoting Church Growth books.
5. Repudiate UOJ and its advocates. Teach the efficacy of the Word in the Means of Grace and Justification by Faith.
|Otten sides with the Church and Changers,|
because UOJ is the false doctrine behind all this radical change,
which will not end with he Toiletarian Left.
|WELS is keen on this stuff -|
just joking, they say.
