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

Concordia Publishing House Wins Hall of Shame Award for Here I Stand Socks

 Yes, this developed during the malignant reign of Matt the Fatt and Paul the Plagiarist. Bruce the Fake PhD was not available for the portrait.

Hello Pastor Jackson

In a recent blog post, you included several examples of items from the Concordia Publishing House catalog for Reformation 500 that show disdain for Martin Luther and the Reformation.

I would nominate for inclusion in the Hall of Shame the following item which is still available from the CPH website:
Luther's Rose Men's dress socks. Includes the words “Here I stand” on the bottom.

One needs to have shameless disdain for Martin Luther and his work to come up with something like this, mocking Luther's most famous statement, and then merchandising it through the LCMS book store.
I was very disappointed that the LCMS and other Lutheran bodies did not promote Martin Luther and his teachings in 2017. The 500th anniversary of the Reformation was a golden opportunity to do so, but they did not. As you wrote, Lutheran synodical leaderships have lost faith in the efficacy of God's Word. They don't believe in what they publicly profess.
Several months ago I bought and read your book Catholic, Lutheran, and Protestant. I found it to be a very good description of the differences between Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, and Protestantism/Calvinism. And I found it to be a very good exposition of confessional Lutheran principles.

I wrote a review in Amazon and I made the point that if the Lutheran denominations couldn't muster the energy to promote their own doctrines, then they would have done well simply to carpet-bomb America with your book: a clear, straight-forward exposition of Lutheran theology that any layman could pick up, read, and understand.
