Fighting Words

“The Lutheran church is at war, and the result is a wild inconsistency in her churches. There are Lutheran churches trying to do a service largely indistinguishable from Evangelical megachurches like Willow Creek. Then one can find wonderfully orthodox Lutheran churches led by faithful pastors. I have the greatest respect for solid confessional Lutheran pastors and laymen. They introduced me to orthodox Lutheranism and catechized me into Lutheranism’s theology of the cross” (Craig A. Parton, The Defense Never Rests: A Lawyer’s Quest for the Gospel (St. Louis, MO: Concordia, 2003), 116-17).
