| Lea Salonga is the pride of the Philippine Islands|
for her great voice and theatrical skills.
In the rain, the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
in the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me, forever and forever.
But - it is all imagination
I love him, but when the night is over
He is gone, the river's just a river
Without him, the world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers
I love him, but every day I'm learning
All my life, I've only been pretending
Without me, his world will go on turning
The world is full of happiness that I have never known.
I enjoy musicals, and this stage production, featuring music rather than scenes and acting, is my favorite when faced with the task of grading.
Dr. Lito Cruz and I discussed the talent of Lea Salonga and her world stardom, since is he and his wife are originally from the Philippines.
As I was listening to this unrequited love song from Les Miserables, I was struck by the parallel with bad Biblical interpretation.
Fuddlementalists, mainline liberals, and WELS-ELS-CLC-LCMS UOJists have one thing in common - the actual text is simply a springboard for their imaginations. They are completely unaffected by the actual meaning of the words they read and cite.
I recall my Augustana College professor, a Harvard mainline liberal, explaining that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were words "placed on the lips of Jesus" by the author of Matthew, in the Great Commission.
When I was studying the abusive Fundamentalists, one woman who grew up in abuse stated their sermons have nothing to do with the text cited. There is often no connection at all.
Likewise, the UOJists from WELS-ELS-LCMS live in the same delusional world. The Tiddlywinks who led the 2015 Emmaus Conference proved that. The LCMS DP said "everything is UOJ" in 2015.
"Why does objective justification matter? It’s the heart of the Gospel, that’s why. The concern, in my mind, is first and foremost PASTORAL." DP Herb Mueller, certified ignoramus.
“Our Righteousness Before God…Is Revealed in the Gospel. On this Righteousness Faith Relies.”
