Communion Fellowship: Thesis XI

“Members of heterodox fellowships are not excommunicated by their nonadmission to the celebration of Holy Communion in fellowship with the Lutheran church, much less are they declared to be heretics and condemned, but only suspended until they become reconciled with the orthodox church by leaving the false fellowship in which they stand” (C.F.W. Walther, “Communion Fellowship” in Essays for the Church: Volume I [St. Louis: Concordia, 1992], 225).
