Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

No bark, not even bite...

...usually Dan the Geologist keeps us updated on the LCMS politics via CAT41. The new hymnal is a subject to such news. Here's a copy of the final changes (e-mail) or click the blue chess king picture to go to my one of my alternate sites, Swedish Coffee. Apparently the commision in point 5 of the e-mail has decided to omit this statement in the final version of our new hymnal: In the rite of Holy Matrimony, the words "and thus avoid sexual immorality" are removed.

I found this disturbing because it seems that this commision wants to condone "living together" or "sleeping together", or the whatever the f_ck you want to call it. It's wrong! It should have never been removed. It should still be condemned.

It reminds me of another Lutheran buddy. He and his non-Lutheran wife decided to "live together" before they got married. A lot of rationalizing their behavior occured. They even claimed that they were "married in the eyes of God". They were eventually married by Wish-I-Was-A-Pastor in Kansas City. When they starting coming back to the ULC, they noticed there was a lot less tension toward them. It was because, frankly, they were NOT living in sin anymore by "living together".
