Quote from: Keith Falk on October 21, 2007, 09:37:34 PMI just finished reading the entire thread... it is interesting to see what the other end of the Lutheran spectrum thinks of the retreat. Seeing those disucssions just makes one realize that one man's conservative is another man's liberal.

Jerry on October 23, 2007, 04:32:32 PMQuote from: LutherMan on October 21, 2007, 08:05:37 PMhttp://www.lutherquest.org/cgi-bin/discus40/discus.cgiLook for the thread titled:"Unionism at Fort Wayne Seminary?"I am actually reduced to tears at this nonsense. I have said it elsewhere: I will never again set foot upon any of the CTS campuses. To be called, as a member of STS, a liar and all these other names is intolerable. I have also said elsewhere on this forum that these allegations are evidence that the accuser was not in attendance. I was. If anyone has any questions regarding the integrity of any of the STS folks, I am more than happy to rise to their defense publicly.What I have never figured out is why the LCMS folks should hate and despise the STS so... We are working to reform the ELCA, we are working to keep it on the firm foundation of the Lutheran Confessions. We are the ones who the LCMS should be praying for and commending. But no. We are more despised in LCMS circles than even in the ELCA circles. So be it, but I'd think that someone would at least a half-hearted attempt to defend and speak well of the Society. So be it. It's good to know where you stand in the world.Pax Christi;Pr. Jerry Kliner, STS
Quote from: Charles_Austin on October 23, 2007, 04:40:06 PMPastor Kiner is, I believe, rightly outraged. However, all should remember that everyone in the ELCA, whether STS or not, is - in the official mind of the LC-MS - not "Lutheran" enough, not welcome at LC-MS altars or LC-MS congregations, at least officially.
