HOLY COMMUNION FIRST AND THIRD SUNDAYS Theological Axioms collected by Walther.

Nothing is more useful than reason when she is a maidservant, or more dangerous, than when she is mistress of the house. Nothing is more beautiful when it follows, or more harmful when it takes the lead. New Year's Day: Give thanks to the Lord of Time and Space! You must throw away even all the trappings of erring traditions.

Christmas 2 I do not believe it, because I do not read it [in the Bible!].

The spoken word passes away, the written letter lasts. Epiphany Vespers Service 7:00 p.m.

The highest principle is not, "Reason has spoken," but, "God has spoken." Examples ought to be interpreted according to the rule, that is, according to sure and clear passages of Scripture, not against the rule or the passages. (Apology XXVII. 60.)

Epiphany 1

Council by phone 11:45

In everything that is necessary for salvation, Scripture is plain and clear. The meaning that the letters spell out is not always the intended meaning. Bible Study 7 p.m. Each individual passage has only one intended meaning. Only the contextually sound meaning is the true meaning of every Bible passage. Only the contextually sound meaning can be used to prove a point.

Epiphany 2

The REAL meaning from any passage of Scripture is what the writer meant. Heresy is what you mean; not what you say. Bible Study 7 p.m. You should not set aside the meaning that the letters spell out unless you are forced to by the context, immediate and remote. Scripture is its own interpreter.

Epiphany 3

Life Sunday

7 p.m. ISU Bible Study, library Ada Tjernagel Bible Study 7 p.m. You should set aside the ["literal"] meaning that the letters spell out when a clear parallel passage requires you to adopt a figurative meaning. Every interpretation of Scripture must match with all clear passages that treat the same subject.

Epiphany 4 No Bible passage ever contradicts another. [Titus 1:2] You should set aside the meaning that the letters spell out when the subject matter requires you to adopt a figurative meaning. When you take everything in context, you will see that there are no contradictions in Scripture. Be very careful not to try to put meaning into Scripture [eisegesis], but to get it out [exegesis].
