File this Under “Ludricrously [read: stupid] Things Some Lutheran Pastors Say”
Just received this comment from a friend who was perusing an ostensibly "Lutheran" internet forum, a comment made by a LCMS pastor:
"I have at times shocked people by suggesting that for the Christian,
the Ten Commandments really have become the Ten Suggestions for living
the good life."
No, pastor, they are not suggestions. Sometimes I do find myself wondering if, while going through seminary, some pastors missed those days they covered, oh, you know…Lutheran theology. I'm just saying, maybe it might be wise for pastors like this actually to take a few minutes to read the Large Catechism. Just a thought, for the new year.
