President Harrison to Address US House Committee on the Obama Healthcare Ruling Tomorrow Morning, by Pr. Rossow

We just heard that President Harrison will be addressing a House Committee in Washington DC tomorrow on the recent Obama healthcare ruling.

You can watch it live at 9:30 Eastern time by clicking on the Witness-Mercy-Life Together blog. You can also read more about it there.

President Harrison has cultivated solid relationships which have opened such doors. We are not surprised since he has such a warm yet firm countenance and bearing. Some on this blog have criticized Harrison and others for being too involved in political matters. We have seen no evidence however, that shakes our confidence that Harrison knows full well Luther’s distinction between the right and left hand kingdoms and will make sure that it is the preaching of Christ crucified that is at the heart and core of the church and that such public appearances as this, as important as they are for making sure that Caesar fulfills his vocation, are secondary.

  1. Pr. Rossow wrote, “Some on this blog have criticized Harrison and others for being too involved in political matters.” Amazing. Simply amazing. All that our president is trying to do is to give a clear witness to Christ, His Word and the one true Christian faith. What part of being a “lamp on a hill” do some people not understand? I applaud President Harrison and stand with him.

  2. Who has criticized the President on this blog for being too involved in political matters? I’ve seen a number of comments raising questions about the Two Kingdoms, but that isn’t the same as criticizing the President.

  3. Clear, concise and to the point. “Get the federal government out of our way.” Thank you Pastor Harrison for your words on behalf of our church body.

  4. Proud to be a member of The Lutheran Church/Missouri Synod! Thank you Pr. Harrison for your passionate declaration of our stand before the Hearing Committee. Yes, we serve God, not man!

  5. He has spoken, and his statement was even better than the released printed testimony. Wow! A clear witness to the Gospel of Christ, and a wonderful testimony to the issues at hand. I hope that a corrected version of the testimony is released, as well as a video of the testimony itself. It’s that good.
