What genuine Lutheran would mourn the loss of a school that denigrated the doctrine of Scripture and ridiculed importance of faith in Christ? From Concordia Portland’s campus pastor: “You get what you’re looking for. If you want to come to a Christian school and develop relationships, deep ones with other Christians, if you want to deepen your faith, discipleship, yeah, you can do that here, … If you go, ‘All that hocus-pocus, I’m just here to get my degree,’ you can do that too.” The name “concordia” is not sacred and being an LCMS school does mean it will be orthodox, nor should it be blindly assumed to be so. –ed.

Christian News is a newspaper that covers current events in the theological secular arenas and how they affect your church and life. Christian News is not an official organ of any church-body, but an independent publication designed to supply rank and file Christians with information needed to face the present crises in Christendom. Christian News is not a doctrinally neutral observer, but is committed to the full historic Christian faith, as it is authoritatively revealed in the written Word of God, the Holy Scriptures, and correctly set forth in the Confessions of the Orthodox Church to wit, the Book of Concord in 1580.
