Why Should Lutherans Be Interested in Virtue?—Rev. John E. Hill

*Register for “The Faith of Our Fathers: The Law of God Is Good and Wise” conference here.

The antinomian wave that has washed over all of us has blinded Lutherans to the teaching and cultivation of Christian virtue and piety. Evidence can be found throughout school and college curricula and culture, marriage and family dynamics, and congregational culture and catechesis. This paper will especially assess the Biblical teaching of virtue and piety.

Rev. John E. Hill is the husband of Angela, father of five married children, and grandfather of 14 grandchildren, born and unborn. He was born and baptized in Paris, Texas and confirmed in Plano, Texas. He holds a B.A. (1986) from Concordia College, Ann Arbor, MI, and a M.Div. (1990) and S.T.M (2009) from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN. He served as pastor of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Forbes, ND (1990–1995) and Mount Hope Lutheran Church and School, Casper, WY (1996–2015). He has served as President of the Wyoming District LCMS since 2015. His theological pursuits center around exegetical and systematic theology. He takes great interest in Classical Lutheran education and loves cross-country skiing and backpacking.
