Pastoral Meanderings: Where are all the people? (Father Larry Peters repeats the same thing over and over.  If the LCMS truly made a fully clean break with the ELCA, then it could make a more convincing case to be confessional, conservative Lutherans.  As it stands, liberals remain in the LCMS and everyone who is honest knows it.  The ALPB is basically universalist or at least tolerates universalism – which means that the words of Christ are denied.)

Beware False Teachers with Good Doctrine and Bad ... | Christianity Today  The author of this article says that Mark Driscoll “denies the full humanity of women in both word and deed, advocates for profane views of gender and sex, rages with unrepentant pride, engages in habitual self-promotion, and manipulates and abuses others. Why, then, for so long was he able to avoid being denounced as a false teacher?  My answer: because maybe he doesn’t really do any of that stuff.  Actually read his books and watch his videos and not just take a few items of context.  Christianity Today is wobbly at best in being conservative.  Frequently it is just downright liberal.
