Feed My Lambs

Pr. James Moshier steps “into the ring” to discuss his homily delivered at the 2015 Spring Pastors Conference in Kearney, Nebraska. When the risen Lord Jesus works a great catch of fish and when He instructs Peter to feed His lambs (John 21:1-17), we also receive Jesus’ admonition to pastors to feed the flock through faithful, lifelong catechesis. It might even include something called “liturgical trivia.”

Confusion Among Lutherans

Tim WoodWhat happens when the average LCMS pew-dweller, who has a superficial grasp of Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions, sees some careless “cooperation in externals” by LCMS entities? “Confusion,” says elder Tim Wood. How does our “cooperation in externals” undermine our seeking oneness in doctrine and faith?

Read Tim Wood’s article, “What Does the LCMS Reap by Sowing Confusion Among its Members?”

The Three Outposts, part 8 – The State

AbrahamsonIn part 8 of our series on “The Three Outposts” (three estates), Pr. Joe Abrahamson gives us the Scriptural teaching on God’s gift of, yes, government. How can government be more than a “necessary evil,” as Thomas Paine said? Is government really a gift from God? (The tax-man too? Seriously?) Why is government necessary, and how do Christians live under a sinful, wicked government?

The UnBiblical Removal of Pastors

BJS_JoshuaScheerw100Pr. Joshua Scheer joins us to discuss the sinful and unbiblical removal of pastors from their congregations. What non-Scriptural reasons do some congregations give for removing their pastors from their God-given calls? What are true, Biblical ways in which a pastor may/should be removed from his call? How do the Ten Commandments enlighten us on what’s going on here?

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2 (continued)

BJS_BruceTimmWhat other reasons does Pr. Bruce Timm have for using the Church’s liturgy? How does the liturgy teach the young and sustain the old? Isn’t the liturgy “boring”? And that’s a good thing? How does it unite us in confessing the faith as a synod? (or was it “senate”?) How does using the liturgy help us to “be green,” or environmentally friendly?

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #4”

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #5”

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2

BJS_BruceTimmPr. Bruce Timm just had to come back to smack down the hosts – especially Eric! – as he continues discussing his articles titled “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” Did Adam and Eve have the liturgy in the Garden of Eden? What does the book of Leviticus teach us about the Church’s liturgy in our day? What can the book of Acts teach us on using the liturgy?
