    Does Elizabeth Warren support identity politics or not?

    Wow, this is flipping hilarious! Give me some time to catch my breath, please..

    Great. Now we all get to point to an ancestor of an exotic ethnicity ten generations back and ignore the ethnicities we actually belong to! WooHoo!

    How much time do you spend reading the Bible?

    God bless you too, sir. My morning devotions include saying Dr. Luther's Morning Prayer, reading two chapters out of the Pentateuch, two chapters out of the History, two chapters from the Wisdom Books, two chapters from the Prophets, two chapters from the Gospels, two chapters from the Pauline Epistles and two chapters from the General Epistles. Then, I stand before my Lord and say a personal prayer that includes words of thanksgiving, confession, petition and praise. Then, I read some articles out of the Lutheran Confessions. It takes me about forty- five minutes and is a wonderful start to my day.

    Any Lutherans here?

    Thanks be to God for your little community! When I first started attending Hope Lutheran Church in Jacksonville, FL, it was a tiny church as well ( it was missional. It became a proper parish church about a year after I got back to VA and transferred to Hope Lutheran Church in Manassas, VA), but it just made everybody's participation that much more important. Thank you so much for sharing your current situation with us and may Our Lord continue to guide you in the way of the One, True Faith!

    Prayers Would be Appreciated

    Hello, all! It seems that I've just come down with a minor case of the flu. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated. God's blessings to you all.

    Prayer request for a new widow

    An old high school classmate of mine has recently lost her husband to a swift and unexpected death. Her world is in ruins and those closest to her are walking around in a daze. I'm too far removed from the situation personally to do anything other than pray for her, her family and to commend the soul of her husband to God's Fatherly care. I'm going to take a walk and pray silently for those effected by this tragic and terrible loss. Please pray for this wonderful, loving family who lost their provider, their protector and their head. God bless you all today.

    Ideas on the crucifiction

    Point taken. I suppose the warning should have been implicit in the word fiction, but I thought it was a case of simple misspelling. Oops.

    Congregationalism

    Excellent points. So, the Congregationalists don't really have any kind of accountability outside their local church and there is no overarching organization to provide checks and balances needed to maintain some sort of Reformed orthodoxy.

    Congregationalism

    Would the Congregationalist Christian expression of Christianity be its own label, or would it be included under the Reformed/ Presbyterian umbrella? http://www.ccccusa.com/about-us/

    Ideas on the crucifiction

    Sorry, I forgot what subforum I was in. Here's something from my local Church of Christ website: First Principles Class MANASSASCHURCH.ORG The First Principles Class meets every Sunday at 9:00 AM in Room 12 First door down the hall from the Fellowship Room. The class is taught by our Brother Owen Mullenax, a former Elder. His teaching will help you to prepare for more advanced study, to know how to approach and teach an intrested person who would like to begin learning the bible. The class is for all age groups, and... Read more

    Ideas on the crucifiction

    Exactly. God ( unlike " the Force") is not some figment of a money- maker's imagination and Jesus ( God the Son) does His Father's work. He voluntarily took on human flesh to bear our sins and be our Savior. Here is a fairly basic Catechism that explains things.. Luther’s Small Catechism by Dr. Martin Luther CATECHISM.CPH.ORG Martin Luther addresses faithful and godly pastors and preachers in his Preface to the Small Catechism. God bless you on your journey!
