First, the denomination makes their pastors apologize for praying in a multi faith service. Why? Because the denomination bars worshipping with other faiths.
Now lets think about this one logically, if they fail to even pray with other faith, then they are not taking the Great Commission seriously because they are not sharing the gospel with all nations. The Great Commission implies that the LC-MS will have to pray for and with people of other faiths. If they are unwilling to pray for or with people of other faiths, then they are not fulfilling the command of Christ by witnessing to all nations!
And second, their pastors relish in division. If they were really concerned with the state of the ELCA, they would lament the divisions in the Lutheran church throughout the world. To me, this just proves that the LC-MS is not concerned with unity, but rather strives for division.
Every time I see antics like these, I’m glad I’m not LC-MS!
