Ingrid Schlueter – Celebrates Holy Cross Day

Ingrid Schlueter – Celebrates Holy Cross Day

You’ve got to be kidding me?   Ok, Ingrid… What is this about?    Isn’t this the same as Advent?   Holy Cross day is part of the Catholic year (Liturgical year).   I can’t believe one needs to uphold a day in the year to place emphasis on what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us.  What other ‘strange’ days does your church emphasize?

Does the bible not emphasise that one is to come OUT OF the Roman Catholic church totally and utterly?  But hang on a seccie, are you not a Lutheran, which is nothing but a more ‘christianized’ version of the Catholic church?  Just because Luther defied the Roman Catholic church and nailed a piece of paper to a door does not make the man a Christian, all he did was bring about a new movement.  Lutheranism and Calvinism all come from Rome and will go back to Rome.

The Centrality of the Cross

Sep 14,  by Ingrid Schlueter

“Our church has a carillon that can play samples of church bells from around the world. Our call to worship today was unique in that we heard the bells of Kreuzkirche in Dresden to call us to prayer. The church was founded before the Reformation in 1215 when over in England the Magna Carta was being signed by King John at Runnymede. During the Reformation, the first Lutheran service was held there after being rebuilt in 1539.

Today was the 18th Sunday after Pentecost which is traditionally a service called Holy Cross day. The emphasis was our need for the work of Christ accomplished on that cross of Calvary 2000 years ago, and the importance of the centrality of the cross in our lives today. The hymns today were all about the cross, and the opening hymn was the wonderful, Lift High the Cross...”

“Holy Cross Day, 14 September, originally commemorates the alleged discovery of the true cross in Palestine in the fourth century. In Lutheran churches, it is the occasion for preaching on the theology of the cross.”    —

The rhetoric expressed here by Ingrid and Ken is certainly not what one would expect from one believer to another. It is cold, rude and nasty. Even if they believe they have been wronged, the Bible says our response should not return in kind. What does this say about these folks? I for one will no longer consider them reliable discerners. Their remarks smack of pride – which the Lord hates. Where is the humility? This is truly sad.


Hey B L!

Nice to see you’re back!
How did your missionary trip go?
The pastor of that Messianic fellowship I told you about has just returned from a 10 day trip to eastern and central Russia, visiting Jewish communities and Jewish believers there. Starting with two Jewish ladies (mother and daughter) who they met on the plane to Korea, there were twenty four Jewish people who were saved as a result of their witness.
Don’t know about you, but I get more excited about people being saved than I do about stories of miraculous healing, even if they’re true.
God bless,

Hey Alan,

Amen – many people heard the uncompromised Gospel and made professions for Christ. Only the Lord knows the heart as to who was genuine and who was not, but they heard and hopefully will be discipled by local pastors. You are so right – the new birth is the greatest miracle of all and results in the ultimate healing of the heart. The signs and wonders folks like to trumpet the sensational, but it is what quietly happens in the heart is of of paramount importance.

Ahhh, the errors! They pass so easily as
truth! Let us all cleave to the King James
Bible of 1611, and pray that this not be so
of Ingrid Schlueter. She is an agent of Rome,
seeking to seduce the church of North America
and subject free men to the power of the Papacy!
A POX on her, out out, come out all of you NOW!
I stand with Righteous King James and his MEN
who fought this error with their blood.

I have a problem with the divisive comments against Ingrid Schlueter and that is there should be no division on something that celebrates the cross if it keeps in mind and preaches Christ also raised from the dead. Did not Paul use the unknown god with Greeks. I suppose now Ingrid Schlueter’s opponents will write that this makes Paul a pagan.


So, what is your point about Ingrid? Are you saying she isn’t a real Christian? That she is a pagan? Please explain what you are saying for me who is having a tough time following your train of thought.

I’d also like you to explain why it is wrong for Christians to remember the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross of Calvary? Are you saying that only Catholics or pagans or misguided Christians do that sort of thing?

Thanks for your consideration.

Debs, after your 3 month histus it seems it is delusion as normal. Sigh……….

Great to have you back my friend!! I was SOOOO concerned about you!!! Been praying for you!!!

Schlueter is a total flake. I’ve seen her
waffle on almost every point of doctrine,
at the same time railing at the smallest
perceived offenses on the part of others
she thinks have strayed from the ‘straight
and NARROW’. She’s just looking for attention,
and like some kind of radio shock jock deals
in stuff that gets the public attention. She’s
like a mirror image of Howard Sterns. Haven’t
heard her lately, but tune her in some time.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
