» Good morning. Can you please tell me if your church baptizes in Jesus' name?
» Is it okay for a Christian to celebrate their 21st birthday with alcoholic beverages, provided they do so in moderation?
» I am going to a Christian Business Round Table tomorrow morning. The Topic for discussion is, "Lessons Learned When Trust is Broken & What it Takes to Rebuild." Attendance will be men of several different denominations. One gentleman is from India with a Hindu background and, I might add, seemingly a new Christian. I want to participate in this discussion from a WELS standpoint and am simply seeking a few good talking points whereas I may be able to respond appropriately during the conversation. Thank you in advance.
» Are people higher than the angels? I have always believed and been told that this is true as we are God's children and they are God's servants or messengers. My pastor disagreed, quoting psalms 8:5. I discussed this with my ELS family, including my sister, a former Christian day school teacher married to an ELS minister and she too believed we are higher than the angels. I have read 1 Corinthians 6:3 and other NT references and now I am confused.
» If the Sabbath was instituted in the Garden of Eden, and precedes the Mosaic Law, why don't modern Christians observe the Sabbath? I get why we would be freed from the Mosaic ordinances of the Sabbath, but why don't we consider the day especially sanctified (more so than a Sunday or Monday) if the Sabbath precedes the Mosaic Law?
» Hi, good day. I would like to know what is a heresy. Thanks.
» What are the differences between a called deacon and a called vicar in the WELS? Can both preach, serve Communion, be a lector, etc.? What limitations does each position hold?
» How far back was the Noah and the Ark incident?
» How do we know earth is a sphere? The information we’ve been taught is from scientists who also teach evolution. The pictures we see are from NASA who are also scientists. How do we know those pictures are real or made up in Hollywood? The Bible says that God moved the sun backwards. That sounds like the sun revolves around the earth. It also talks about a firmament or dome.
» The Bible teaches us what the role is of a husband and a wife in a marriage. Wives must submit to their husband as they are the head. What role does the husband and wife play when it comes to disciplining your spouse for something they did wrong? I know a husband and wife are equal in the sense they are adult human beings but what does God say about the wife disciplining the husband and/or the husband disciplining the wife when he or she does something wrong?
