Wow. Great find. Thanks for posting it.

You know Tietjen, apart from the issues involved, is alternately very appealing in this video and very arrogant.

I think you may have just nailed it.

Agree with Pr. Alms' assessment: both appealing and arrogant. Perhaps that is the blessing/curse of charisma.

Another observance: the modern LCMS custom of having Synod leaders begin addresses to Convention with testimonies of their faith.

The reading of a "laundry list" of believed tenets to the delegates is seen with Dr. Tietjen. Convention delegates continue to see it done by LCMS leaders 35+ years later.
