13 MARTIN LUTHER I ask that men make no reference to my name, and call themselves not Lutherans, but Christians. What is Luther? My doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for any one. Paul in 1 Corinthians would not allow Christians to call themselves Pauline or Petrine, but Christians. Let us abolish all party names and call ourselves Christians. JOHN WESLEY I would to God that all party names and unscriptural phrases and forms which have divided the Christian world, were forgotten and that the very name (Methodist) might never be mentioned more, but be burned in eternal oblivion. CHARLES SPURGEON I look forward with pleasure to the day when there will not be a Baptist living. I hope that the Baptist name will soon perish, but let Christs name last forever.

15 Lutheran Denomination to Allow Gay Clergy The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America yesterday became the largest religious denomination in the nation to allow actively gay and lesbian clergy to serve as pastors. Gathered in Minneapolis this week for the biennial Church- wide Assembly, representatives voted, , to permit congregations to hire homosexual men and women who are in committed relationships. The 4.8-million-member church already permitted the ordination of gays and lesbians but required them to remain celibate (BNET, August 2009, by David OReilly).

16 Hard Questions Demand Qualified Answers Like many other mainline denominations, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has been faced with the need to decide whether to ordain active gays and lesbians to their ministry. This issue came to a head at last week's Minneapolis convention of the body. By a narrow margin, the ELCA decided it would ordain active gays homosexuals if they were "in a lifelong, committed, monogamous, same-gender relationship." (Examiner.com)
