Concordia Bronxville Publishes Devotions including Female “Pastors”

Why does the Missouri Synod smell like the ELCA right now? Am I just an ungrateful person? After all, we have so many blessings in the Synod.

But sometimes there are things that are just so mind-numblingly absurd, the only sensible thing to do is to say, “Balderdash!”

Our Concordia in New York invited female “pastors” to contribute to an Advent Devotional that is downloadable on their homepage. (scroll to bottom)

First, there is a female “pastor” from the North American Lutheran Church, our new dialogue partner. How is it that we agree so well on the doctrine of Scripture with the NALC, when the Rev. Amy Schifrin is the President of their seminary?

Rev. Cari Pattison is not only a female “pastor”, but also a minister ordained in the PCUSA, which like the ELCA, is supportive of sodomy and abortion–not to mention being on the wrong side of all those Reformation era squabbles we used to have with the Reformed.

Though not a female pastor, there is also an ELCA pastor in the devotional as well, Rev. Paul Eggensteiner.

That’s it, that’s truly the entirety of this report.

I am not going to give any detailed analysis of this matter for it deserves none. If you are a pearl-clutcher who wishes to chastise me for nonexistent 8th Commandment violations, chastise the little guy in this story before wasting your breath on me.

In what universe is it acceptable for an institution of the Synod to publish a devotional booklet that has devotions written by female “pastors” and other false teachers?

Last time I checked the Missouri Synod was supposed to be against this stuff.

Why isn’t Concordia-Bronxville wearing any clothes? Am I the only one absolutely befuddled by this?

  1. “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.”
    —1 Corinthians 14:34 (KJV)
    It seems pretty clear to me, “…as also saith the law.”
