"Lex orandi, lex credendi" as hermeneutical key?
Right on target! Right doctrine begets right practice. Aberant practice flows from aberant doctrine. Where one observes questionable or aberant practice, the question must be asked, "What doctrine is wrongly taught or understood or being rejected?"
Although the Lutheran Confessionswere written in the 16th century, weare now in the 21st century and havethe Holy Scriptures which are alwaysable to speak to matters where theConfessions are silent. God's Wordis never outdated.
Anonymous, what part of the BOC is outdated? Due to the unconditional subscription of ordination vows of clergy and the constitutions of the LCMS churches -the BOC is not outdated either, at least that's the vow and agreement of the LCMS churches and pastors. We have Scripture and the Confessions on our side when it comes to refuting the so-called "contemporary" worship practices.
