|Mirthless Mark Schroeder at Calvin Chapel, "I know UOJ is in here somewhere, but I just cannot find it right now. Where's my NIV?"|
I hacked the WELS app to buzz me whenever the sect discovered a new Church Growth Principle, but the repeated alerts annoyed me. Now I rely on confidential DP informants.
One source reported Schroeder reaching an agreement with Matt the Fatt on Creation. That had me confused. Is Mark ready to accept the Seminex takeover of Concordia, St. Louis? That is not much of a leap, since they already published a Book of Concord with ELCA's primary gay activist - the Kolb-Wengert.

We had a New Year's Eve hymn service tonight, which made me think about lyrics from Gerhardt, who is praised once a century and then forgotten again.
2. He whom the sea and wind obey
Doth come to serve the sinner in great
Thou, God's own Son, with us art one,
Dost join us and our children in our

3. "Yea, Father, yea, most willingly
I'll bear what Thou commandest;
My will conforms to Thy decree,
I do what Thou demandest."
O wondrous Love, what hast Thou done!
The Father offers up His Son!
The Son, content, descendeth!
O Love, how strong Thou art to save!
Thou beddest Him within the grave
Whose Word the mountains rendeth.

Should Lutherans now contradict the Scriptures, the Scriptural Confessions, and the Scriptural hymns to agree with Concordia Seminary in St. Louis? Should the LCMS and WELS abandon any pretense of singing Gerhardt, speaking low in Milwaukee lest the King of Creation be mentioned on the streets of Clayton?
Simply put, denying the power of God to create the universe through the Logos (John 1:3) is nothing less than a rejection of Genesis 1 as explained clearly in John 1. This equivocation by the Neo-Seminex Romanists subverts the entire Apostles Creed. I am not going to mention Luther, because he is nothing more to LCMS-WELS than a gimmick to sell trinkets during the right season.

WELS and Missouri sold their members down the river decades ago, because both sects taught Justification by Faith until the apostates began their slow infiltration of all positions of influence.
I will run this graphic one more time, in case some forgot it from a few hours ago. Then please tell me how someone takes the theme of the entire Bible, the German Reformation. and basic Protestantism and buries it alive, replacing it with Universalism.
