Two resolutions — affirming the LCMS stances on beginning-of-life issues and biblical marriage — passed by wide margins on Sunday.
The Rev. John E. Hill was elected to his second term as president of the LCMS Wyoming District at the district’s 19th convention, held May 3-5.
Any conversation about marriage ought to start with a simple definition—what is marriage?
One is more likely to remain faithful to the basic piety of the Christian religion if he identifies himself with a particular denomination, that is, if he knows what he believes and why.
So it is with marriage. You won’t get very far trying to travel alone in a relationship, talking to yourself, or at someone else.
“Without This Ring: Surviving Divorce,” by Donna Pyle, is designed to provide “Christ-centered steps toward hope and healing.”
Delegates adopt six “Church and Culture” resolutions during the LCMS convention’s closing session.
Action on issues raised within the church by changes in the culture continued on Tuesday at the 66th Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
Jesus remains true man, united to His one Bride (denoting a female), the Church. So as the lesser image is to the greater reality, we should not perceive marriage as anything less or more than one man and one woman.
It is not that we believe that freedom of religion overrules freedom of speech, but rather we believe that religious institutions ought to remain faithful to their beliefs.
Under assault these days, marriage is usually defended on the basis of morality or because it is the foundation of stable homes, secure children and society itself. But besides these godly concerns of law, the devil won’t stop attacking because marriage illustrates the Gospel.
