    The joint declaration is an interesting attempt of the Lutheran World Federation and Roman Catholic Church to work toward common ground concerning the doctrine of justification It was a beneficial read, and a reasonable attempt at some form of ecumenical discussion concerning such a contentious doctrine While not a solve all , it allowed for some constructive dialogue between two rival denominations.

    How dare the liberals that signed this poor excuse of a declaration call themselves Lutherans

    The Joint Declaration on Justification is one of the most important theological documents of the modern era Although it still leaves ecumenical work to be done, it is nonetheless a sweeping triumph for ecumenism The relationship between the Catholic and Lutheran churches has been a half millennium of misunderstanding, division and damaging rhetoric What s so encouraging about this document is that in a relatively few amount of pages, it cuts through all of that and paves a way for unprecedented understanding Even where disagreement still exists, this document presents a fair and balanced treatment of both sides arguments, rather than the hyperbolic, overtly misconstrued treatment the two sides have historically given each other Perhaps the greatest achievement of the Joint Declaration is its claim that the mutual anathemas of the Reformation error no longer apply to today s churches Whether or not those condemnations were valid at the time they were given is a historical question and one the Joint Declaration doesn t address However, valid or not, those condemnations can, praise God , finally be left in the past This document leaves work still to be done and it s important not to overstate its achievement But while it doesn t end the Reformation, it lays the groundwork for eventual, if still quite distant, reunification Let s hope and pray that both churches follow through on the promise of this document and work for the unity Christianity so desperately needs

    It was an interesting example of two churches working out the differences in their ideas about some of their foundational theology.
