salvation people who do not believe in him or even know about him.”

    Given what’s been up at PCR lately, I’d say it was William P. Young.

    I’m guessing it’s some emergent church guru like Leonard Sweet or Dan Kimball.
    There’s trouble in the forest, don’tcha know.

    The quote is Augsburg Fortress Lutheran Study Bible, page 1658.

    Ouch! I wasn’t expecting that at all.

    This really chaps me. I’m still recovering from attending a confirmation service last year, in a small ELCA church in a small town in northern Minnesota, in which the (female) pastor got up and preached plain universalism (“What did Jesus mean by saying He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life? It’s a mystery.”).

    I like Leonard Sweet. I read a book of his called “Soul Tsunami” and even though I didn’t agree with everything, I found myself nodding in agreement with most of it.
    That’s a wierd quote. It almost seems contradictory. Jesus includes in salvation people who don’t believe in Him or know about Him??? What???

    It’s not Leonard Sweet. It’s the ELCA study Bible. See Piper’s link.

    One more item to keep on file for the next time someone tells you that there’s no difference between the ELCA and LC-MS, WELS and others.
    Perhaps they’re just trying to make sure they don’t offend all the church bodies they’re in altar and pulpit fellowship with.
    Then again, this comment on discipliship could be criticized for not being inclusive enough!

    wow, that’s really universalistic. I’m glad to be a part of the LCMS more and more

    Looking at this, I am inspired to write an article for our May newsletter talking about the different Study Bibles that are out there. Is there any way that the study note from THE Lutheran Study Bible for Matthew 28:18-20 can be posted (or e-mailed) so that I can compare and contrast notes from the exact same passage?
