Pr. Fouts Coins a Phrase

Pastor Ryan Fouts, from an internet discussion group:

"Of course we have areas of agreement. The disagreements have certainly
shifted from SOME of those of the Seminex era -- though I'd suggest that "Gospel
reductionism," morphed now into "mission reductionism" is one of the errors of
our day being avidly promoted by some"

"Mission Reductionism" - a false belief in some circles that "mission" or "outreach" is the number one priority of the church, something I certainly saw on display at the recent LCMS convention. Thanks for the aphorism, Pr. Fouts!

Pastor Chryst, may I shamelessly copy this with a proper tip of the hat to both you and Pastor Fouts?
