Faith Related Q and A
» I had a conversation with a Christian recently (not sure of her denomination) who has two beliefs for which I can't find a scriptural basis. One is that angels are sent by God, but we must ask for their help before they will intervene in our lives - almost as though they are just standing by, waiting to be called up by us. The other is that by blessing a building and writing a series of numbers and letters above an entryway with chalk (which she does annually) she can "keep the Devil out." Are these some kind of distortion of Scripture, or am I just uninformed? Thank you.
» My family and I are new members of an LCMS church. Our congregation recently voted to call a female Director of Christian Education (DCE). This decision has angered my wife and me because this allows a young unmarried woman to lead and teach our confirmed teenage boys, young adult men, and adult small groups. My wife and I don’t believe this is faithful to Paul’s instruction to the Corinthians forbidding a woman to “teach or hold authority over a man”. And yet the LCMS has maintained this practice for about 50 years. What is WELS' position on female lay teachers? Does WELS have a position concerning the practice of female “DCEs”?
» I often read in Christian publications and in our own WELS literature the phrase "for Jesus' sake." This often appears at the end of written prayers and in the prayers said at the altar in my home church. I really bristle at this. For Jesus' sake? Really? He is holy and gave us eternal life through His holy blood. Jesus doesn't need us to pray for him. It is we poor sinners who need prayers of intercession. As a life-long WELS member, I finally have to ask, what does this phrase mean, as I obviously am missing the meaning?
