50 years ago, CSL pres. Alfred Fuerbringer said… (most hated men by LC-MS)

      In May 1968, after the passing of LC-MS President J.W. Behnken, the then president of Concordia Seminary, Alfred O. Fuerbringer, wrote in his “Tribute” to Behnken, CTM, vol. 39, p. 296:

 …our frequently harsh judgment of 

the men of past generations.

It was a small step from the weakness of Fuerbringer's father Ludwig Fuerbringer, former president of the Seminary, to the “harsh judgment” of the son Alfred against the fathers of the old (German) Missouri Synod, a hatred shared by all subsequent generations of teachers of the Lutheran Church—“Missouri Synod”. — In the following posts, I will publish my translation of Ludwig's much better “tribute” to Franz Pieper. Ludwig demonstrates that, although he was weak, he did not teach the heresies (tearing down Holy Scripture, etc.) that his son Alfred (and the teachers under him) “frequently” did.
