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

Reasons Given Why Public Discussions Are Dead in the LCMS

 The standards of McCain's plagiarism blog have been extended to the
entire synod. Pope Paul the Xeroxer allowed all flattering comments through
but nixed anything negative about his drivel.

SpenerQuest finally had an interesting thread, about a resolution that effectively ended public discussions about LCMS dogma.

"Resolution 12-07A (adopted 684 to 244) clarifies, in LCMS Bylaw 1.8, the definition of dissent, bringing it “into alignment” with the recent CCM opinion 13-2665, according to Wille. Dissent from the doctrinal positions of the LCMS is to be discussed first — in private, rather than a public forum — with those who are “competent to evaluate the issue critically” and then brought to the attention of the Synod’s Commission on Theology and Church Relations. Any “public teaching” — including on blogs and Facebook pages — that is contrary to the established doctrinal position of the Synod “shall place in jeopardy membership in the Synod.”

I have to rely on others telling me that the Steadfast group blog, started to support the Matt Harrison dynasty, has become even more boring than ever. McCain would pop up and tell people not to link Ichabod, forgetting that the Law increases sin - and readership.

I know of few restrictions for the ALPB online blog, except to be reasonably polite. McCain was kicked off that site for his obnoxious behavior. They are duller than golf on TV, more boring than watching paint dry.

The less time in the parish, the more time in administration.

Long ago I saw what a dictator Matt the Fat was. He ordered his sycophants to erase the evidence of felonies involving Darwin Schauer - and they did.

The less time in the parish, the more time in administration...and the chow line.

The clergy and laity do not have to obey, but they do.
