What a Game

Sorry for the short hiatus. Did you miss me? I didn’t think so. I was occupied…

    There is one thing I really like about Dallas Cowboys organization….their tremendous support of Salvation Army!

    There is an attack on Salvation Army in liberal fever swamps these days because they teach biblical Christianity to people they help. So I love it that Jerry Jones is not afraid of the liberal hate when it comes to supporting this good charity.

    While it is true that the Salvation Army does a lot of good, some of their “biblical Christianity” is more akin to what Westboro Baptist Church preaches rather than the teachings of Christ himself…that is the people are upset about, not Christianity in general.


    That aside, was a wonderful game on Sunday…looks like our host had great seats for it.

    Uh-oh, Kevin, looks like you and the Synod may have different ideas on “biblical Christianity”.

    From the official WELS website:

    “The Salvation Army is a self-described “holiness movement,” placing greater emphasis on the Christian’s life than on what God has done for people through Jesus Christ his Son. The Salvation Army rejects the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

    2 John 10-11 (“If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.”) instructs us not to support those whose teachings are contrary to Scripture.”

    I don’t disagree with that off WELS web site. I never said Salvation Army was completely correct in it’s biblical teaching. I would agree SA needs to focus on what Christ has done for us and sacraments.

    WELS members can still compliment the good works someone else does for the poor. It’s also fine for me to thank a Roman Catholic, for instance, for good works in public. Roman Catholics also teach biblical Christianity, to an extent, as well.

    The liberal fever swamps are attacking SA for it’s holding to teaching God’s design on marriage. Something true Christians agree on. That was biblical teaching I was refering to.

    I apologize if I was unclear. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

    Never ceases to amaze me how so many devotees of Saul feel the need to judge if other people are “true” followers of Christ of not.

    The better term is “biblical discernment”.

    Many take the “judging” passage out of context to mean that we should abandon all ability to determine the difference between right and wrong.

    For instance, if you ignore the words of Jesus himself in Matthew 19:5 and Mark 10:5-9 when it comes to marriage under God’s design….is sticking up for what Jesus said, proper “biblical discernment”, or “judging”?

    It also amazes me, and the reason I made my initial comment, that some liberals are actively standing in the way of the SA kettle because SA follows teaching marriage under God’s design…is the not “judging”? (for sure it is lack of biblical discernment…standing in the way of helping poor people because one reject’s teaching marriage under God’s design.)

    I cerainly don’t agree with everything the SA does, but they should be free to teach marriage under God’s design without being labeled a hate group by liberal fever swamps.

    It’s a shame that a post about a good football game has to be dragged down with politics and religion. What a sad world we live in.

    Face it. Football is political. Even mildly complimenting certain charities at an NFL game gets some people’s dander up.
