Response from Pastor (Bishop) Benjamin Lasegan,
President of the Lutheran Church in the Philippines
you for giving me a copy of your Reformation issue of the
CCM Verax International Newsletter. I wish to inform you
that I share the sentiment of the TAMIL Lutherans in India
and the many Lutherans around the world who are against
the "CCM Grand Deception". I personally believe
that Lutherans can be very ecumenical without compromising
and losing our historical and theological heritage from
our great Lutheran reformers.
me, these are the only remaining Lutheran uniqueness that
we can contribute in our ecumenical relations and in our inter-faith
dialogues. I am very much amazed how some Lutherans in the
ELCA are easily converted to historical Episcopalianism by
compromising their theological Lutheranism.
you once again for giving me this opportunity to share my
personal belief and conviction on the issue raised.
yours in Christ,
