Associate Editor’s note: this is the first of what will hopefully be many posts by Joseph Klotz. He’s the author of the forthcoming “Lutheran Book of Hours”, a talented musician, and a solid Lutheran layman (St. Paul, Brookfield, IL). He’s also bought me a lot of beer and I don’t want him to regret agreeing to write for us, so extend him a warm welcome and be nice! When I was a little kid, I found the pocket-sized New Testament that my father received from a Gideon when he was drafted.

When I was a little kid, I found the pocket-sized New Testament that my father received from a Gideon when he was drafted. I used to carry this King James New Testament around with me and read it constantly, even though I found the language to be awkward and had difficulty understanding a lot of it. That was the first Bible that was really “mine.” I had other Bibles, but they sat on the shelf. This pocket New Testament went with me everywhere. It fascinated me that I was reading that particular New Testament because a Gideon gave it to my father in 1965. My next encounter with the Gideons was when I was in college at Murray State University. . . . Read All

How do you know that people who have developmental disorders, like autism or Down syndrome, are saved, if they aren’t capable of choosing Jesus as their savior?

I also have very good news for you! The truth is that your son’s Autism is not what keeps him from choosing . . . Read All
My uncle, Mom’s side, has cancer. He’s a devout Catholic. The possibility of my uncle passing caused my father, a US Evangelical Megachurch goer, to ask my mom if my uncle’s accepted Jesus into his heart. My Mother said yes. My Dad replies, “Just because he’s a devout Catholic, doesn’t mean he’s accepted Jesus into his heart.” Is this idea of “Accepting Jesus into your heart” biblical? I attend an LCMS church & love it so I’m wondering what the Lutheran perspective is on this concept? ~J Dear J: Rest assured that your uncle’s salvation is not dependent upon him “accepting Jesus into his heart” but is all dependent upon Jesus and His death and resurrection, and upon the working . . .
