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

The Chief Article Deniers Are Doomed.
UOJ Stormtroopers Just Like the Radical Left

The ecclesiastical world can be divided into two groups.

I. Teaching Justification by Faith Alone.
II. Denying Justification by Faith Alone.

Those who locate forgiveness of sin in Justification by Faith Alone are found in Protestantism, but not among all Protestants. As the Emmaus Conference has shown, the LCMS-ELS-WELS-ELCA faction suffers from leaders who reject Justification by Faith Alone.

Fuddle-mentalists are likely to be in the second group as well, because they add works that must be added to faith, in order to be forgiven and saved. I walked out of a Church of Christ (rural Disciples of Christ) service, with LI, when the minister glared at me and shouted during the sermon - "Faith alone is not enough." Rick Warren (purpose-driven) is quoted as saying the same. No wonder Warren is so popular among WELS clergy.

"Don't compare me to Webber!"

The Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholics teach against Justification by Faith Alone, but some indivuals may be in those groups while still holding to the Scriptural norms rather than denominational dictates. That is the power of the Word, to lob the concepts over the heads of the apostate leaders, who try to block them, and teach people directly.

The true blue members and Pharisaical priests in each denomination tend to be as snooty, snotty, and loveless as the WELS-ELS-LCMS are, because they share one concept in common - the worship of Holy Mother Sect. "We are the only ones who...etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc..."

On the other hand, those who emphasize faith in Christ have a common love for the Gospel, even when other issues get in the way.

The Chief Article is plain throughout the Bible. Abraham is the example of Justification by Faith Alone, in Genesis 15, Romans 4, Galatians, James, and Hebrews. Through faith alone, the sinner becomes forgiven and saved, receiving the blessings and Promises of the Gospel.

This Chief Article is the Master and Prince of all the articles of our confession, the judge of everything else. Luther, Melanchthon, Chemnitz, and Gerhard taught this with perfect clarity, but the Halle Pietists have sought to overthrow this ancient and blessed doctrine of the Bible.

The UOJ Stormtroopers continue to look for
that iconic Biblical passage that proves their folly,
and they never find the target.

UOJ Stormtroopers Just Like the Radical Left
Those who deny the Chief Article have the same corrupt disposition, because they share the characteristics of the Radical Left:

  • The opposition must be silenced.
  • If the opposition cannot be silenced, they must be hated out of the sect.
  • If they cannot be hated out, they must be exiled.
  • The punishment must continue - shunning, silence, and revenge against their families and friends.
  • Everyone must be afraid to mention their names.
  • If their names are mentioned, some gratuitous insult must be added to befoul the air.
Many are nodding their heads right now, because WELS-ELS-LCMS-CLC-ELCA have proven this to be true. The only honest sect among them is ELCA, because they boast about their dogma and their agenda. The others hide their evil unbeliefs and work gladly with ELCA, holding their sanctimonious noses while grabbing the insurance loot.

Pope Herman Otten loves to work with "conservative" Roman Catholics, the ones who really believe in Purgatory and the 435 titles of Mary, as if Theotokos were not enough. Otten apologized to WELS when I correctly pointed out the WELSLavender Mafia while reviewing the Roman Catholic book, The Rite of Sodomy, by Randy Engel. I received a free review copy from Engel of Vol 1. When I asked for Vol 2, after Otten threw himself on the mercy of WELS, she failed to answer my email. Perhaps she was busy with her endless series of books by that title.

Weakland headed a series of public lectures at Wisconsin Lutheran College, WELS,
and the sect scrambled to deny, deflect, and obscure that fact.

And - just after Otten prostrated himself before WELS and Professor John Brug (CN front page, no less), the FBI raided WELS headquarters for harboring a boy porn file swapper, their own Joel Hochmuth.

In WELS, Bivens plagiarizes Zarling - braying
that the Chief Article is Justification Without Faith.

This deserves to be emphasized - Bivens, The Primary Article [UOJ] in Its Primary Setting: Objective Justification and Lutheran Worship.


That is why the Chief Article deniers are doomed. They want their meadow to bloom while planting, watering, and fertilizing thistle seed.

WELS, Missouri, and the Little Sects (CLCs included)
have turned No Other Gospel into their closeted blasphemies.
