I have a follow-up question to the answer to my previous question “What Would Lutherans Read?” The answer given was very helpful. But appealing to tradition and confessions as Lutherans do is still new to me, so I am a bit slow even though it makes a lot of sense. Rev. Lorfeld wrote that “when […]

I am a Lutheran who recently was confounded when talking to a pentecost. It was a good discussion and showed me that I need to do more study; however, we came to the topic of infant baptism and though I knew what I believed, I could not find verses to back up every one. I […]

Greetings Concerning your recent video which touched on 1Cor 12 and “tongues”, I have a question. The Lutheran understanding seems to be that “tongues” is better understood as languages, at least that is what I was taught. And, those languages being actual languages that people understand. I see in 1Cor 14:2 that St. Paul wrote […]

Hello WEteam,  Thank you for this ‘WE got answers’ section. I was hoping that you all might be able to recommend some books or other resources for me. I don’t know exactly how to ask this question, but I will try. I hope that it makes a bit of sense. I know that Lutherans hold […]

Good evening Rev. Fisk, We’ve been having some “fun” (read: interesting and frustrating, too) dialogues with Calvinists and one in particular wanted to say that we are alone against the rest of Christendom with regard to the numbering of the 10 Commandments. Specifically Commandment #2 and how we supposedly ignore the “graven images” aspect of […]

Thanks. -K I hope the others will chime in so that you’ll get a good list of online […]

Today’s video “Ninjasmatic Gifts” partially answers the question: “Would you please explain charismatic churches? There are so many charismatic churches near where I live. Are they biblical? Are they crazy? And how do I confront what they are teach? I see many verses to back up the things they do in the bible, yet I […]

Hi Pastor Fisk, I love your broadcasts and don’t think I am a pietist, but I really was surprized (well, it actually left me gaping open-mouthed) that you used the word “friggin” in this episode…especially referring to the Gospel. The terms friggin’ and freakin’ are just euphemisms for the queen mother of swear words and […]

Regarding “Don’t be drunk with wine” … Any thoughts on what it means to be filled with the Spirit? I would be tempted to spiritualize that or focus on my feelings. But I like the idea of being filled. Closest for me is walking back to my seat after receiving the Sacrament of the Altar. […]
