I thought using "fully human" was pretty stupid in the earlier WELS hymnal, the one ruined by Tiefel and the 50th Anniversary adulterous pastor. How balanced - unfaithful to the Confessions, unfaithful to one's wife when helping with the hymnal.
The KJV should be used and studied because it is the backbone of the English language - for that reason alone, said a modern atheist - Hitchens.
WELS is so full of itself, the alleged leaders, obedient to their Father Below, take every opportunity to oppose Biblical doctrine, ridicule the noble KJV, and adulterate the hymns.
So they have moved in this new hymnal to change "and became man" in the Nicene Creed from the idiotic "fully human" to the illiterate "truly human." Supposedly, Treptow insisted on "truly human." I have come to the conclusion that seminary PhDs, especially from the LCMS, are useless.
Truly human has the same vibe as sterling silver, m eaning "all silver, not silver plated." Truly human suggests "only human."
"And became man" is clear, concise and reflective of "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us..." a phrase so clear and simple that rationalists deny the Virgin Birth in the Gospel of John.
This pratfall x 2 comes from the Woke arena where perfectly good words are tossed away because they irritate and enrage hypersensitive women who suspect male dominance in the words used. Like Church Growth bringing in the youth , feminism in the hymnal is another spectacular failure, with women leaving WELS, ELCA, and LCMS because of such nonsense.
