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.

One of many interesting points…

…in this article from Issues, Etc. regarding one of my favorite topics: Campus Ministry: Suggestions for Students facing the Campus Challenge-Be discerning. Choose a campus Christian ministry or parish based on substance, not hype, entertainment or popularity. Watch out for attractive sounding but deceptive names! Sadly, some self-styled "ecumenical" groups encourage ideologies that radically revise or reject parts of the Biblical witness. Likewise, ignore claims by groups to be "non-denominational," because doctrinally there is no such thing. Groups that make such claims (such as, Campus Crusade) are overwhelmingly Baptist or Pentecostal in outlook. Lutherans in such a setting may be misunderstood, or sometimes pressured to be "rebaptized" and join another kind of church. Cults sometimes also try to recruit members claiming to be "Christian." Learn to appreciate and trust the Lutheran Church and her priceless grace-centered message.
