Pr. Wolfmueller on Bumper Sticker Theology and the Anti-Catechism

The congregation I serve has a speaker come every year for an afternoon and teach on an evangelism related topic.  This year, Pastor Wolfmueller was invited up to speak on the topic of “bumper sticker theology”, which of course has been a long standing topic on his podcast, Table Talk Radio.  The presentation was an excellent primer on the theology going on behind popular bumper stickers and in general, American spirituality.

One of the best things of the presentation is that Pr. Wolfmueller presented all of this in the framework of what he is calling “The Anti-Catechism”, or a way of looking at the world around us in its attacks on virtually every point of the Catechism.  It really helps to organize what is going on all around us.

The presentation is three hours long, but well worth it.

  1. Who has three hours spare to sit at the computer these days? Any chance of editing it into shorter, separate portions?

  2. Just finished watching the video, thank you so much Pastor Scheer. I’m retired so as I did my housework, etc. yesterday and this morning I was able to listen to the video. Pastor Wolfmueller is such a blessing to the LC-MS. We are surrounded by American Evangelicalism and we need to know how to defend the faith when we are engaged in discussions with other Christians. Too often I’ve heard that we should remember what we have in common with American Evangelicalism rather than our differences. The Lutheran church has many differences with them and our pastors should be teaching our people how to defend the faith. That’s what Pastor Wolfmueller has done in this video. Great job!

  3. Thanks for posting this. I look forward to viewing the last two hours soon. I would encourage folks to seek out Pastor Wolfmueller’s sessions on Issues, Etc. He has several useful series, including:

    1. Responding to Evangelical Prooftexts
    2. Responding to Evangelical Cliches
    3. Top 3 Verses

    All of them are excellent and Todd Wilken does a great job teasing out the differences between Lutherans and American Evangelicalism, from which Pastor Wolfmueller came to Lutheranism.

    Additionally, his Grappling with the Text series on Worldview Everlasting is fantastic.

  4. Probably the best use I’ve made of 172 and 2/3 minutes in a long time. Thank you, Pastor Scheer, for posting this, thank you Pastor Wolfmueller, for being you, and thank you Jesus for providing us with faithful and true Pastors to guide us and help us. Thanks be to God!

    PS-Please do not shorten this as Rev TH requests. Rev, I promise you this is worth your while.

  5. Would it be possible to download the handout Pastor Wolfmueller is using in the video? I enjoyed the video. Thanks for posting it.
