Help my foot's on fire!

Oh, wait, I thought it was Ablaze! but no, it's just barely smoldering... like the LCMS' ill conceived and poorly executed "movement" to reach 100,000,000 people with the gospel by 2017. They have used up about 30% of the time allotted but have only got 10% of the "numbers" they need.

Ablaze is not actually Lutheran of course, it's closer to your standard evangobapticostal sort of program and is full of implied "decision theology." Worse, it totally ignores all that is distinctly Lutheran (and thus really Christian), such as the proper preaching of Law and Gospel (Word), Baptism, Confession and Absolution and the Holy Eucharist (Sacraments) as the means by which the Lord has said He will spread his gospel around the world. (For more detail on what's wrong with Ablaze! see Ablaze!®, the Movement - By David Berger)

Anyway, Scott Diekmann has come up with brilliant plan to get it all over with so we can forget this horror and get on with Word and Sacrament. Check it out.
