who are these people?  -W.E.L.S. Lutherans

      Were it not for when Michele Bachman ran for the presidency, you may not have ever heard of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. For those of you who get your news on Facebook, you can Google Bachman and see what you missed and be advised: well-read people actually read stuff.

      The WELS claim allegiance to the Apostles', the Nicene and the Athenasian Creeds. Wouldn't you have thought that  churches that are 'creedal' could pick one or write one rather than pledging their allegiance to three different creeds?

      Headquartered in Milwaukee, the WELS has more than 1300 congregations with about 400,000 members and one of the largest prison ministries in the United States. WELS also supports mission churches in Malawi, Zambia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Albania, Bulgaria, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Brazil, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the West Indians, and with native Americans in 190 locations.

      The tragedy of the WELS church is "The Bible and (WELS) Lutherans teach that baptism is a holy act. It is instituted by God. Using water and Gods word, it (baptism) offers and gives the forgiveness of sins, spiritual life, and eternal salvation. It (baptism) is meant for young and old, including children.  Infants also are sinful and therefore need the spiritual rebirth brought about through baptism."

     These same WELS churches also claim: "The message of the gospel is the good news that a loving God sent Jesus Christ to take away the sins of all people. This gospel freely offers to all sinners the righteousness that is found in Jesus. God offers and gives eternal life and salvation to all who believe in the gospel promises."

      Now ain't that something! If you hadn't read their first statement you might not have know that included in the gospel promises mentioned in their second statement was water baptism and that it is water baptism that saves.

TODAY’S  BEST SNAIL-MAIL

Dear Brother Terence,

I spake with you several months ago and I was so enlightened by your teachings. I told you about hearing you on the radio. I was always serious about studying Gods word but you have shown me a far better way.  My question of you is, would it be possible to make payments of five dollars each month to purchase your DBI flash drive.  I am in my eighties and money is tight.

Thank you: At 76, I know where you are coming from.  If our income is "fixed" how come we're always "broke?" Keep your money: your free flash drive is already in the mail and you should have it shortly.  As they are trained to say at Chic-fil-a: “My pleasure.”

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.



Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

How many WELS Lutherans does it take to change a light bulb? One or maybe two, or maybe we need a committee to write a creed or two or three to help us find the right answer, which we will probably reject.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom,y with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. Coverdale
