  1. If the acceptance of the doctrine of Historical Criticism/Higher Criticism led the ELCA to eventually embrace Open Communion, Womens Ordination, Abortion, Evolution, Homosexuality, and Universal Salvation, then wouldn't the removal of this H.C. doctrine mandate the rejection of all these practices and make the ex-ELCA congregations confessional.

    Confessional Lutheran denominations already exist. Wouldn't it make more sense if those ex-ELCA churches were to join the LCMS or TAALC instead of trying to "re-invent the wheel." Just a thought.

    I look forward to reading your response on the ALPB forum page:

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.
