This past Spring I taught the board of elders at my congregation, a wonderful group of 14 Christian men who faithfully serve their congregation, about the topic of Unionism and Syncretism using some of CFW Walther’s work as a guide. They asked me to teach this to the congregation this past Fall.
This PDF is from that study. I offer it as a help to faithful Lutherans seeking to understand the importance of the topic.
Of special pastoral note – This study was only possible after years of catechesis and instruction. The topics of Unionism and Syncretism are not shallow, but rather deep and can cause offense to young Christians unless handled with great care.
