faith is not nice

faith is not nice

by Rev’d David H. Petersen Redeemer Lutheran Church Fort Wayne, Indiana {Reposted from Cyberstones} To live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God is to live by faith. Faith is a painful and awkward thing. It is not at home in our flesh. For our flesh is weak. It wants its own way. It wants satisfaction. We like things that we think are strong. Our flesh prefers bread for our bellies to the Words of God´s mouth. But the just shall live by faith. In weakness God’s strength is made perfect. The just shall live by faith – but it will hurt every step of the way. For the just on this side of glory . . . Read All

Today’s Scripture

And when the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done.”—Genesis 8:23 . . Read All

Failing Homosexuals

Failing Homosexuals

“Preach the Law as if there is no Gospel; preach the Gospel as if there is no Law,” is a Lutheran dictum, and it is here we have failed homosexuals. The LCMS’s latest foray into our society’s blitzkrieg of accepting sexual deviancy is found in the October 2013 issue of The Lutheran Witness.  There is hope yet, but not if we don’t break from our past. True to bureaucratic thinking there is no formal backing away, let alone repenting of, the 1999 “A Plan for the Ministry to Homosexual and Their Families” prepared by The Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals and Their Families.  Yet the Witness only has one reference to once a homosexual always homosexual and the . . .

Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Thus you may read in the book of the Elders, that a young brother wanted to be rid of his thoughts. Said the Elder, Dear brother, you cannot hinder the birds in the air from flying over your head; but you can prevent them from building a nest in your hair.—Martin Luther, Day by Day, p. 124. . .

The Flogging of Jesus

Then Pilate took Jesus and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. They came up to him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and struck him with their hands. (Jn 19:1-3)Pilate still wants to find a way of setting Jesus free. He thinks perhaps the Jews will be satisfied with a flogging. After Jesus is whipped he lets his soldiers have fun with him. They dress him as a king and address him as king of the Jews while beating him repeatedly. I wonder what that had to be like. I can imagine the pent up rage in the soldiers finding an. . . Read All
