What's this? A new low for Nicolas Cage?
Again, my apologies for not seeing this post, and that it was primarily in response to something I said here:
If I've understood your comments, you appear to be arguing that ELDoNA is not a confessional Lutheran church, so there is no disunity among confessional Lutherans? If that is the case (and I'm not entirely sure that's what you're saying), I was basing my comments on this statement from ELDoNA's official website:
Now, I guess it could then be debated if ELDoNA really is committed to the Book of Concord and if they're really confessional. I assume they probably say they are and you and some others say they aren't. I assume from their perspective that by embracing Rev. Rydecki's version of justification, ELDoNA has a problem with universal objective justification.
That confessional Lutherans are not broadly unified is sadly easy to document. This statement also is of interest:
I'd like to also mention something I said previously, to bring this all back to where it started:
I have a feeling that had I had access to the needed Lutheran resources, like the minutes of the meetings from Lutheran synod gatherings throughout the decades, it would be fairly easy to document the pains and struggles and disunity all large denominations go through. This is the case in my own denominational history. I have a number of volumes on the battles within the CRC (the parent church of URCNA), as well as the URCNA synod minutes.
It's obvious to me you're committed to the Lutheran church, and I respect that. However, you can be committed to the Lutheran church without becoming a theologian of glory over your church. The theologian of glory is in each and every one of us, I know I fight him every day within me, and often lose.
