    What is the Lutheran/Biblical teaching on tithing? Seems like I’m hearing different teachings within the Lutheran community, depending on which Church I go to.

  2. Hello,
    I come from a Presbyterian background, yet I’ve spent the past five years studying Eastern Orthodooxy. Some friends of mine have recommended Chemnitz to me and I’ve found much in Lutheran Orthodoxy that I really appreciate. There are also a few Lutheran churches nearby that I will check out.

    Could you recommend any audio on these topics? I would greatly appreciate that.

    Peace

    I have recently discovered the role of August Hermann Francke in the Lutheran religion. I understand that
    he was a professor at the Martin Luther University in Halle, Germany and that he was dismissed from the
    university for his biblical revitalism, social activism and in particular his founding of Pietist groups at the
    university. Therefore what I have to offer may not be of much interest to your organization. I have a
    “Stammbuch”, or remberance book which my step-father found in the ruins of Aachen during World War II. The book contains many verses on love and life and several signed remberances dating from 1712 to
    1846. One of the entries is written and signed by August Francke. Would THE LUTHERAN JOURNAL
    be interested in seeing a copy of this writing and do you know of anyone else whould want to inspect the
    book also. I can be reached at bidi01@verison,net, at 717-545-8078 od 717-919-7680. I will be looking forward to your reply.

    Księzę Doktorze Piotrze- Polscy konserwatywni Staroluteranie , potrzebują przewodnika- duszpasterza na miare ksiedza doktora. Polski KEA się skonczył. Tu już odnowa nic nie da. WPOlsce niestety potrzebny jest kosciół misyjny z zagranicy. Bo Polacy nic nie potrafia sami zrobic , tylko spieprzyc. Ale Polskę zarówno Missourii jaki i WELS, omijaja niczym przysłowiową trędowata. I gdzie tu mowimy o bratestwie luteranskim ? Niech sie cały swiat dowie jak są przysłowiowo olewani Staroluteranie w Polsce !!

    This is a query letter for an original article on the status and entitlements of clergy, and the responsibilities and duties of pastors and synod presidents that make these rights necessary. In its present draft, the article runs to 5,685 words without endnotes, or 6,600 words with endnotes.
    The duties the laity owe their clergy include honor, respect, reverence, secure financial income, submission, and obedience. Layfolk must render these so that the clergy will be sufficiently above the common fray to carry out their reciprocal duties: settle disagreements, teach the fullness of the Christian faith, provide stable and well-informed leadership and government for the church, make their decisions and counsel accepted, and handle difficult interpersonal situations. The article gives much space to the teaching function of clergy.
    As is standard for my writings, the sources are all Christian writings before AD 250. The value for such antiquity of material is that it shows that the laity’s duties are not particularly “Roman” or a corruption of original pristine Christianity imposed in the Middle Ages or later times in contravention of some hypothetical thoroughgoing democracy and equality in the primitive church. The article demonstrates that laypeople had such duties and clergy possessed such status and entitlements from the very beginning of the Church as Christ founded it.
    The article is appropriate for Lutheran Theology: An Online Journal because it provides reasons and authorities why pastors and synod presidents should be listened to when they speak and write on points of ethics, and why the decision and judgment of clergy on a particular issue is not merely one opinion among a multitude of equally-acceptable positions.
    I am a member of the oldest Lutheran congregation in Canada. Articles of mine have been published in Lutheran periodicals in Canada, New Zealand, and the United States.
    Would you like me to submit a full manuscript?

    Warm Christian regards,
