WELS Will Be Furious with You, Pastor,
For Telling the truth about the Impact of Alcohol on the Sect
WELS will be furious with you, Pastor, for telling the truth about the impact of alcohol on the sect. You hit that one out of the park. I bet you will get a lot of responses for cutting quite close to the jugular.
It was disconcerting for me to see the beer tents at the WELS biennial conventions (Y and Y) given the horrific losses of life on the roads due to alcohol and the significant damage it has done to families. At the later confab the drunks were still going strong at 2:00 AM and awakened me.
You are correct regarding the Doctrine. Those who are impaired cannot think straight and after a couple decades of heavy drinking, with full-blown alcoholism being next, denial clouds everything.
May God bless you,,,
GJ - Thank you. I also received a positive response immediately from overseas. A third person wondered how many extra brewery supplies they will need for the big one in 2017.
