Progressive education went from nouveau theory to total acceptance in about 50 years. Still in use and promoted in the church, this experiment on our children has destroyed the once vibrant spiritual life of our congregations: fewer children attend & adults often don’t know the most basic teachings of the church. Instead of unity of faith, confession, and practice under Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions, the LCMS no longer agrees on worship, women in the church, scripture, creation, the meaning of the word “drink”, etc. How can we fix such unfixable problems?
Answer: A return to sound catechetical principles. But what are they? Scripture tells us what to teach. Does it also tell us HOW to teach? Yes. Yes it does.
This class will help pastors plan a vigorous life of scriptural catechesis in the congregation integrating the entire pastoral task, and all members of the body of Christ.
