Changes to this site Last Updated 03/18

To keep the WT in place, we have to bring back visitors to the site. One of the problems with the old site was the "signal to noise" ratio -- the good lutheran content v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that predominated the old site. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

why not recognized

Good day Pastors. ...a quick question if I may. Numerous times after Our Saviors Resurrection he was with people who was with his ministry for 3 years. Yet in Scripture it even says they did not recognize him. How can it be you spend time for 3 years with someone...yet after 3 days not recognize someone. We confess Jesus had a bodily return. It even says flesh and bone....he ate fish....he asked Thomas to place his fingers in his wounds. So how could you not recognize someone after 3 days...?…See More

"To Understand the Scriptures" (Luke 24:36-49)

“To Understand the Scriptures” (Luke 24:36-49)Have you ever thought about what the Bible is all about? I mean, if you had to boil it down to just a few short sentences, what would you say is the main message of the Scriptures? You know, a lot of people have a lot of different opinions about the Bible and what it is saying. They pull this verse or that verse out of context and twist it like a wax nose to make it suit their purpose. People approach the Bible with their presuppositions and then…See More

Lutheran Bloggers

We have things to say, and we think the Internet is a nice place to say them. Oh, and we also happen to be very, very Lutheran (again with the having things to say).
