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.

Lutheran Questions

WELCOME to the Wittenberg Trail! It's a joy to have you join us and to be a part of the wonderful things that are going on here. We encourage you to make this your home for all things Lutheran, from discussions, to information, to new publications from publishing houses. The Wittenberg Trail is here for you, so jump in and let your voice be heard.

To keep the WT going, we need to have people want to return to the site. One of the problem that seems to be happening is the "signal to noise" ratio, that is the content of good Lutheran theology and conversation v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that seem to be creeping back in more and more. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

 

But, we need your help to make Wittenberg Trail a success. Please encourage your family and friends to join. If your church has a website, please consider linking us to your website.

By the way "Thank You" to those who contribute to help keep Wittenberg Trail on the internet, your support is appreciated.

Have a theological (church) question that you would love to have a pastor answer? Visit the group, Ask the Pastor. First search the discussions to see if your question has already been answered; if not, add a discussion with the question in it.

David Henkel Against the Unitarians - Section III.

SECTION III.Christ is the only begotten Son of God. It is shewn that although some attempt to prove because he is a son, his Father is anterior to him; nevertheless his sonship proves his eternal Deity.That Christ is the only begotten Son of God is evident from sundry passages of the scripture; neither is this position denied by Unitarians, nor by any other christian denomination with whom I am acquainted. Nevertheless, because he is the Son of God, Unitarians conclude that he is not God. Mr.…See More

Gay Marriage

Hello:     I need some advice.  My brother is gay, and he and his partner are getting "married" this spring.  I love him and his partner dearly, but I know that my husband, children and I cannot go to their ceremony and reception.  I also know that I will be the only one of my siblings not going, and soon I will need to say something to my brother and my other family members.  How do I approach this subject without hurting my brother?  I have never talked to him about his lifestyle; I don't…See More
