Do you have no decency? Did the heat in Arizona get to you this summer, did it warp your sense of decency? Do you actually read the articles that you enjoy being so critical of?

"...Living in the Tibetan-Buddhist region of Ladakh, she joined the faculty of the Mahabodhi School, where she taught Christianity and Buddhism in the middle and upper schools and served as house mother to boarding students...."

So she has an ability and chance to teach both Christianity and Buddhism, in a predominantly Buddhist country. Wonderful...The words one speaks means little, its the life they lead that means the most. So she may have taught Buddhism, but I suspect her life was Christian based, and the best teacher is the examples one shows others. Most people are not converted by telling them they are “wrong”. What religion are you?

Sola Gratia

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

Sola Fide

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Sola Scriptura

The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

Yes I know, most popular with Lutherans.

On a side note: Why did you compare TA to "Missouri Synod Lutheran"? I don't know the group but most Lutherans I know, I tend to like, we seem to have much in common. They too are expericing many of the same issue we are, they just are more hush about it than we.

Because I am a member of the LCMS. Ken and I go back a long way.(Notice I refuse to refer to him as "Rev" because he preaches a false gospel (little g) of affirmation and celebration of sin.

The ELCA has become apostate. Just like TEC. That is why you have much in common.
