    After a historic synod this month, French Reformed and Lutheran churches are now a "United Protestant Church":

    I'm wondering who conceded what in this merger. Anybody know?
    And what does 'reconciled diversity' mean that is mentioned in the article? Is this some kind of 'theological cafeteria' where you pick and choose what suits 'ya?

    Lutherans subscribe to Universal Atonement & Calvies are Limited Atonement...it never worked in Germany when the Kaiser attempted it...so how is this supposed to happen...then factor in all the other differences (consubstantiation, DoG etc.) No serious Reformed or Lutheran will accept this bastardization.

    They will if they are all on the far left, where doctrine doesn't matter.

    If they are on the far left, God wont matter.

    I think those on the far left believe in God, but not the God of the Bible. Their god is a hedonistic god.

    And the next step is often agnosticism.
