What do we know about Stephen Ministries? Should a WELS church leader attend a seminar of theirs? Second question: Does WELS have deacons? What exactly are they?
Why is October 31 (or the Sunday before) celebrated as Reformation Day? I realize that's the day Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses, but there were other writings before and after that. When did the "Lutheran" Church as such come into existence with its own organizational structure separate from the Roman Catholic hierarchy?
I see a lot of videos circling around among friends in chat groups, where Christian missionaries or pastors are talking loudly in tongues and pushing people backwards and telling them they are anointed with the Holy Spirit. It's so sickening to see people mocking at Christianity. Is this all true, and are those poor people required to fall back and roll on the ground in the name of the Holy Spirit? Is that what our loving and merciful God expects? What's even more intriguing is that I have read in the Bible that talking in tongues is a gift, but I do not know what it sounds like and how it's done. Appreciate your response. Thank You!
Is it biblical for parents to give more privileges and independence to boys than girls?
Hello, sir. I was talking with my Roman Catholic girlfriend about the doctrine of Sola Scriptura this morning and she said, "If there are so many ways of looking at the Bible, how do you know which is correct?" I told her that you just let Scripture interpret Scripture, not our opinions. What would you have told her?
I am a woman who has been pursuing a degree in mathematics at university with the intention of teaching it at a post-secondary level. It is most likely that I would end up teaching at a co-ed college or university. If I understand the Bible correctly, it is wrong for a woman to instruct adult males in regard to religious matters. Does this apply to secular subjects? Specifically, is it permissible for a Christian woman to instruct adults solely with regard to the subject of mathematics?
Pastor, did WELS adopt the Catholic Old Testament readings after Vatican II or did you formulate your own?
I have been a WELS member for 45 years. I am divorced but living with a male partner. I was asked to step down by my pastor from teaching Sunday School 3 years ago. I recently started regularly going back to my church. Due to my living arrangements and after 2 meetings with pastor and no intentions on getting married, pastor is asking me to refrain from receiving Holy Communion. He is not telling me to stop hearing the word of God at church but refrain from this. Can he tell a church member they cannot take Communion due to their sin?
Is wearing a head covering in prayer/daily life (based on 1 Corinthians 11) for Lutheran women a personal choice?
What is the most effective way to witness to my niece who lives with her boyfriend?
