Church Trivia

Are you ready to play?

Name the seminary president who said the following.

“But must we begin with justification at all? In fact, do we begin the theological task with some basic thematic expression of the gospel?…No! Not if we want to assure a relevant proclamation of the gospel! For theology to be relevant, the theological task has to begin not with the gospel but with the situation to which it is to be addressed. The first step in theology formulation is to analyze the conditions of the world for whose sake the gospel is to be proclaimed. ‘The world writes the agenda,’ we are being told these days.”

Stay tuned for the answer.

  1. Yes, you did spell the name wrong, first and last. You will have to put that one on your spelling list for tomorrow.

    Also, we are looking for a seminary president. The current LCMS president has never served as a seminary president, as far as I know. But thanks for playing.

  2. Chi Chi:

    Alive or dead, the answer may be. However, Schleiermacher is not the correct answer. However, your guess was a good one.


    Actually, you didn’t spell the first name of the synodical president wrong. You have less homework tonight!

  3. I’m assuming this excludes CTSFW presidents. I’m going to go with Chaz’s answer: Teitjen, however I have a quiver in my liver that it is Meyer.
