Higher Things — Bad People and Bad Things in Church

Found on Facebook: In this week’s Video Short, Pr. Borghardt answers a question from a young person who doesn’t go to church because historically “organized religion” has done some pretty bad things.

These are questions from students answered weekly on Higher Things Video Shorts. You can also follow them on facebook.

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.

  1. This is another example of why we should keep sending our high school youth to Higher Things conferences and retreats. Our youth need this sort of clear theology. The Youth I serve, with very few exceptions, once they attend Higher Things begin planning their next opportunity.

    The latest Higher Things: Dare to Be Lutheran magazine just came out. It’s great! Why couldn’t this be adopted by the LCMS as their Youth magazine, or at least promote it, since they don’t have anything like it?

  2. Our LCMS youth need to make it a priority to attend weekly
    high school Bible classes in their parish and to worship
    and commune each Sunday. A steady diet of Word and
    Sacrament will produce mature Christians If Higher Things
    conferences and retreats can ignite a spark in their
    spiritual lives, then we should support it. The bottom line
    is this….Our LCMS youth need to be nourished in their
    local parish or a regular basis.

  3. My youth group went two summers ago and raved so much, I went with them this past summer. We’re already planning to attend in Raliegh this coming summer. REAL Lutheran!
