If Matthew Harrison is serious about promoting unity in the LCMS around our confessions then he's going to have to do the hard work of Thesis AND Antithesis. That being said, I was extremely disappointed to see Dr. Bruce Hartung, of the St. Louis Seminary, promoting Lectio Divina in the April edition of the Lutheran Reporter.
Lectio Divina is a form of mysticism that is not compatible with Biblical Christianity and a right use and reading of scripture. At its core, it is an enthusiastic practice that comes out of monastic mysticism and the Lutheran Confessions' antitheses against the anabaptists and their errors rule this practice out.
Promotion of this practice by Dr, Hartung and the Lutheran Reporter is divisive and contrary to sound Biblical doctrine, sound hermeneutics and the Lutheran confessions. If there is going to be true unity in the LCMS then practices like this, which cannot be squared with scripture or the confessions are going to have to be publicly repudiated because this is NOT adiaphora.
I invite you take review a couple of resources on this topic.
The first my a radio interview with Rev. Jeff Ware on this topic.
The second is a fine article written by Rev. Jeff Ware entitled A Lutheran Perspective on Lectio Divina. Download Jeff's Article.
