Differences we ought to remember

Over on Hall's blog, he mentions that Confessionals can be just as bad as the libs when it comes to tomfoolery in a congregation - pushing changes to make some sort of ideal. This is a position I have held (somewhat unpopularly amongst some) for a long time. I replied to Pastor Hall with 2 different ideas that even pastors who desire to be faithful to traditional Lutheran doctrine can forget. There is a difference between:

1. Teaching vs. Manipulation.
2. Necessary vs. Nice.

I think I am going to expand on each of these here.

And I'll plan to expand. How about a difference between:

3. Preaching vs. Pushing.
4. Acting Confessional vs. Sounding confessional.

Alright - let's see how this turns out.
