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

Concordia Publishing House Markets the Reformation to Alcoholics

Reformation 500 Musical Bottle Opener


This musical bottle opener is sure to delight as it plays a rousing organ clip of A Mighty Fortress.

The countdown is on to the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation on October 31, 2017! Our collection of gifts will help you proudly pronounce the Lutheran confession of faith in your own, unique way!

Dear WELS Answer Person,
My problem is - Can a WELS member buy something from an LCMS business? I know we work together all the time with those really great lady pastors of ELCA, but this seems to cross the boundaries of church fellowship. I couldn't sleep after ordering 5 of these, thinking about what my DP might say or do.
WELS of Pure Doctrine

If only all our members were as keen about doctrinal fine points as you are. 
I escalated this to an actual person, and she said, "Although we are now open friends with the LCMS, we cannot cross the line of celebrating the Reformation with them. Some have denied Objective Justification. It's best you spend your money at Luther Days, which was organized by people with addiction problems for those with addiction problems. Frankly, we need a few more to become the "Largest Distinctly Lutheran Conference in North America."
Bishop Katie - Have a Successful Day!
