I heard an Evangelical (Todd Friel, former WELS) discussing these on his broadcast today. He was pretty much in agreement with them (at least the ones that he read on the air). Remember, not all Evangelicals are the Schwarmerei that many of us Lutherans imagine them to be.

Read Friel's Wretched blog and compare it to Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions to see what kind of Evangelical he is.

Todd Friel's statement of faith on Wretched that tells us that he's a Schwarmer through and through and a typical Evangelical no different than any other:

"We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life" (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30; 5:18). I.e. the Holy Spirit works apart from the means of grace.

That Todd was once WELS (even attended Northwestern College, the pastor-training school) and now an Evangelical is the more telling story and perhaps a cautionary tale.

Well now they don't need to leave the WELS to be "Evangelical."
