For Bultmann wasn't everything "mythology" except justification?  As noted before even Amida
buddhism affirms justification by faith alone.  The Jesuit missionaries thought that Lutherans had got to Japan before they did.  tb

Then, who proposed the "exceptions by-law" if WAN did not propose it?


From the Milwaukee Common Ground Resolution, "This is the result of a conference between individual WordAloners and other parties in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, February 2000.  It is only the work of the undersigned individuals, and does not represent an official position of either the WordAlone Network or the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America."

One word, Forde. Another, Justification. This drives the theology of WordAlone more than anything I've noticed.

Myself, I like WAN because Jaynann Eglund gets it. And she can beat you up like your big sister. She just might have to do that.

Ditto. Memory eternal, Gerhard!

I love Gerhard Forde books especially "Being A Theologian of the Cross" and I love his work with Nestingen on "Free to Be" which was used in a lot of confirmation classes.
Is Nestingen LCMC now?

A little more info here --
Dr. Nestingen occupies the first endowed chair (I can't remember the official name; I've only heard it once) of the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT).  He is technically retired from the ELCA but is still very active in teaching, in many ways.  He was already committed elsewhere, otherwise he could have been the keynote for our Augsburg Lutheran Churches convention in El Paso July 26-29.  We hope to have him for a pastors' conference this fall in either Brookings, SD, or the Twin Cities, MN.  I was on the phone with him just Friday night.

Anyone who has an interest in Forde style Lutheran theology should check us out, Augsburg Lutheran Churches.  "Come and See."

Well I think the late Gerharde Forde was one of the best modern day Lutheran theologians. Bonhoeffer is my favorite but Forde comes in close.

In looking at the list I was actually surprised at how many WA-associated folks were part of the meeting.  But the comment on the page gives an indication of how uninterested the WAN leadership was in the proposed exceptions prior to their adoption by the 2001 CWA.
