These Words Must Burn Their Hearts - Justified by Faith
Faux-Lutherans say, "Name it not!"



The almost complete blackout of the term Justification by Faith is the most notable characteristic of the Objective Justification fanatics. True, fanatic is redundant because those who begin saying OJ are 100% in the bag for God's unrecorded Universal Forgiveness without Faith.

That data should puzzle us, because Justification by Faith is constantly expressed in the Bible, from Genesis 15 on, frequently in Paul, endlessly in Luther. The Book of Concord and Chemnitz - there too.

What is missing in this eloquent statement?
U - O - J!


Justification by Faith is the

  1. Chief Article of the Christian Religion, 
  2. The Master and Prince, the lord and ruler,
  3. The judge over all other articles of the Faith. 

OJ is not described as any of those things or even named, even though Zarling and Bivens would have us share their Kokomo song. They want us to believe UOJ is the Chief Article, etc etc. Their probable hymn -
Milwaukee, Peewaukee, Oh I want to stalk ye
Eau Clairee, De Peree, come on Doctor Larry,
Kenosha, Peshtigo, baby why can't we go to Kokomo?
 The new LCMS dogmatics book actually names
Justification by Faith in the Table of Contents.

The doctrinally bankrupt leaders of the Little Sect on the Prairie, the Wisconsin Sect, and the Missouri Sect got together and joyfully proclaimed their allegiance to ELCA's UOJ, which all four groups learned from Halle University, Pietism, and Calvinism. Since they all agree against Luther and the Scriptures, they should formally announce their not-so-secret morganatic marriage to ELCA, brokered by Thrivent, with the Siebert Foundation as the ring bearer.

Even the New NIV teaches Justification by Faith, so clearly that when I pointed out the fake "all" in Romans 3, my writing class said, as a group,"But the chapter still teaches Justification by Faith!"

But still, these apostate groups will continue to work together against the Scriptures, against the Gospel of Christ, against Justification by Faith.

Did Jesus say, "When the Son of Man returns, will He find faith?"

or 

"When the Son of Man returns, will He find OJ?"
