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.

Simple theology...

... to make all the "high and mighty" theology simple just ask: works-righteous or not? Theology of Glory or Theology of Cross? This is very effective and cuts to the point. I've had a college World Religions course [Dr. Bales of Bethany College (ELCA), Lindsborg (Little Sweden), KS] and there is much to learn about other religious systems. Dr. Bales said, at the beginning of class, "All world religions are fundamentally the same and superficially different." I retorted (I am NOT bashful in any environment), "It's the other way around, Dr. Bales: 'All world religions are superficially the same and fundamentally different." That simple question reduces the myriads of world religions down to two.

Apparently our Synod can't "call it like I see it" when it comes to denominations, cults and false religions. That's a (beep)ing redneck phrase I picked up out here in Kansas. Sometimes I think our Synod needs to get a pair.
