A layman (a lawyer) in the Neue Kirchliche Zeitschrift (1923, p. 116) [“New Church Magazine”], points to the unfortunate political situation in which Germany is at present, and which is probably most heartfelt for the American Lutherans of the “strictly confessional direction.” Would that by God's grace, as in other countries, so also in Germany, their theology be led out of the marsh of Ego-theology!
