Concordia University Texas Appeals to Caesar to Seize Property and Power

A majority of the board of regents of Concordia University Texas, under the leadership and influence of the board chairman and the university president, threw off the control, doctrine, and ownership of the university by LCMS on November 8, 2022. Without authority, they amended the university’s governing documents, denied any control of the synod’s school by the synod, denied the right of the synod to elect and appoint members to the board of regents, and declared that they alone would determine the extent to which they would retain the doctrine of the synod. This past summer, the synod in con ..read more

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod filed a civil lawsuit against Donald Christian, Christopher Bannwolf, and Concordia University Texas, Inc. on September 1, 2023. As with most court cases, the filing of the complaint that begins the lawsuit is not the beginning of the story. It is a step in the middle of the story. The endnote[1] lists my essays and interviews about the context leading up to the filing of the complaint. A majority of the board of regents of the university, under the leadership and influence of the board chairman and the university president, threw off the control, doctrine, a ..read more

Stoeckhardt Now Available!
Steadfast Lutherans
by Lincoln Winter
1M ago
Closing out our “New Year’s Blitz of Books” is George Stoeckhardt’s Grace Upon Grace: Gospel Sermons for the Church Year. Stoeckhardt was the finest student of Scripture in the early days of the LCMS. His sermons are exegetically sound, practically focused, and well structured. They serve as models of what a sermon can be. But they are not wooden or fake, as most models are. These sermons show a deep love for the people hearing them, and direct them to the source of their life, Jesus. Stoeckhardt can also serve solve the problem of “toothless law” that seems to plague our churches. Stoeckhardt ..read more

You can also post any sort of question that made you think, or made you stop for a moment. We’d even love to hear what question you think the synod catechism should answer, but it doesn’t. (We’re collecting catechism questions for a future project, in case that wasn’t already obvious ..read more

2024 Lent Series Service Plan
Steadfast Lutherans
by Pastor Joshua Scheer
1M ago
Since our completion of our six year Small Catechism Lent run-through we are free this year to do a new series. This year our focus will be on “Spiritual Contemplation of Christ’s Suffering”. The Lutheran fathers found that the most profitable use of our Lord’s Passion was one that involved a focus that this is what Christ has done “for me”. It wasn’t about evoking horrific sighs at gore, or emotional overreactions, but about strengthening faith. This series seeks to do just that. This series is largely based upon the framework of John Gerhard that he puts out in his “Explanation of the histor ..read more
