I am trying to figure out how someone can play with the word justification and make it mean both Justification by Faith Alone and Justification Without Faith. Clearly, we have many obvious examples of the first phrase used throughout the New Testament, in Luther, and in the Book of Concord.
The quotation above points to three great authorities on the topic:
- Melanchthon, quoting
- Martin Luther, with the
- Book of Concord editors citing both authors with approval.
|All things considered, sincere Lutherans will|
pick Luther over Rambach, Quistorp, and Stephan/Walther.
|A new anathema sit!|
Whoever denies the dogma of Martin Stephan, STD,
"Let him be damned to hell!"
- Not a Synodical President.
- Not a District President.
- Not a college professor from one of the weak synodical colleges.
- Not a seminary professor from any of the four, weak synodical seminaries.
- No Biblical language training, except the superficial Ft. Wayne approach.
- Rejection from the LCMS ministry program, which led to an ELS call, thanks to Robert Preus.
- No scholarly publications whatsoever.
- An STM from the online, unaccredited, ELCA based Institute of Lutheran Theology.
