My mother hardly spoke of it. But when she did, even in old age, hurt haunted its telling. On a Sunday morning, right after worship, Mom took my two brothers and me to visit her parents. I was in second grade. One brother was in kindergarten, and the other was three. The Adams’ farm was […]
Faith Related Q and A

What kind of comfort can you give someone when their loved one commits suicide and they were supposedly a believer?
Can you please explain Hebrews 10:26? I always thought that the sacrifice of Jesus provided infinite forgiveness from sins. I heard a Lutheran say that the verse is speaking of apostasy to the faith, though am very confused by it. I am very confused by Hebrews 10:26, to the point of feeling despair because I feel like I am not good enough to go to heaven.
If a person remarries after divorce outside of WELS faith, should they be buried next to their previous WELS spouse or more recent spouse? And does it even matter?
Will we know others as our relatives and friends in heaven?
The first stanza of a popular hymn says, "I Lay My Sins on Jesus." I know of many places in Scripture where we are taught that God has laid upon Jesus the sins of the entire world, and I believe that. But, where in Scripture is it taught that we are to lay our sins on Jesus? Is it even possible for us to do that? Some have suggested that this hymn refers to repentance. But, it seems to me that we would not be able to repent if our sins had not already been laid upon Christ. What are your thoughts on this?
I was reading through the Q & A and came across the following as a portion of your answer to someone.... “He [the Lord Jesus] will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus." Since the gospel is all about what God has done to save us and it is not about anything we do, what does it mean to "obey the gospel"? Thank you.
Recently on the WELS discussion page it was stated that polygamy is not a sin. Martin Luther was even referenced by one person. Is it true that polygamy is not a sin?
Does someone have to believe that the Papacy is the Antichrist to be a WELS member?
What does Jesus mean in Matthew 7:6 when he says, "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs"?
Will the old body be united with the soul? I know we will have a glorified body in heaven.
