The Heresies of Matthew Becker

UPDATE: Becker resigned from the LCMS. Too bad he’s still a heretic.

When a so-called pastor of the LCMS claims (http://matthewlbecker.blogspot.com/2013/02/one-more-response-to-hrc.html):

“How can any evangelical preacher proclaim that any one specific person who has died is in hell? What arrogance! What idolatry! That is not “rude,” that is blasphemy! What an uncaring, hard-hearted, mean-spirited mindset. It makes the death of Jesus cheap, it limits his atonement, it denies the promise that Paul proclaims in Rom. 11:32 and several other places (1 Cor. 15:22-28, etc.), it rejects the hope that Peter gives in Acts 3:21, it ignores the central affirmation in John 3:16-17

and (http://matthewlbecker.blogspot.com/2013/02/one-more-response-to-hrc.html?showComment=1360462160246#c1875406929959943482):

“The Athanasian Creed errs when it implies that one is saved by a mental work of believing this creed’s humanly-devised dogmatic statements ‘faithfully and firmly’… Its conclusion is simply incorrect. The Athanasian Creed muddles the gospel at precisely this point”

He must be marked and avoided (Rom. 16:17-18) and eventually removed from the roster of the LCMS.
