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

One Small Book - Martin Chemnitz on Justification:
The Chief Article of Christian Doctrine

Here is a book that came my way not long ago. Concordia Publishing House published it, and Jack Preus translated it.

The book is slender, easy to read. Chemnitz took material from Melanchthon and expounded upon the various issues surrounding the Chief Article.

Luther called himself a Solafide-ist, a Faithian,
so I am happy to use that label.

Given the blabber that comes from Ft. Wayne graduates like Jack Cascione, Paul McCain, and Jay Webber, is it too much to ask about their study of this volume? They were in school when Jack and Robert Preus were teaching or leading the LCMS. Jack and Bob were scholars.

Likewise, Robin Leaver, who lectured at Ft. Wayne, wrote a CPH book about Luther's Justification by Faith Alone. Nobody read that book?

Chemnitz and Melanchthon are especially important for those who want to call themselves "Confessional Lutherans," a term rendered meaningless by ELCA, Father Neuhaus, and the rest of the rabble.

All the gaseous output from the UOJ Stormtroopers is already addressed by Justification. "Your faith is in your faith! You are not a Christian. You are a Faithian!" - Typical Ft. Wayne palaver, from the infamous manure spreader himself, David Scaer.

Chemnitz has a chapter on faith, not only worth reading, but worth careful long-term study.

 Justified before we are born?
No wonder the Synodical Conference began to tank
after this notion was accepted as Gospel, 1932,
even though Ed Preus joined the Church of Rome as a major writer, editor, and theologian.
