“Here your proud waves cease”

It turns out that there is a limit to the liturgical  antinomianism in our synod.

Pr. Rossow (BJS) reports (among other things) that his District President directed that when doing Baptisms or consecrating the elements of the Lord’s Supper, only the Lord’s words are to be used.  We are not to add or take away a jot or tittle from the law.   So we can only go so far with the idea that “it’s all adiaphora.” It is an encouraging development.  I don’t know that it is a result of President Harrison’s tenure, but it is nice to see the COP admitting that even “Every man doing what was right in his own eyes” (Which FC X most decidedly does not say) must yield to the clear word of God.

Now, about that electric guitar in the chancel…
