For various reasons, many corners of the Missouri Synod have kept using their texts from the Predestination controversy.  The other side has not done so, however.  I put the initial English paper from Missouri Synod out a bit ago at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/44432.aspx as well some works by Walther related to it.  I unable to find The Lutheran Standard or Columbus Theological Magazine online.  I did find some issues of Altes und Neues, but, to be honest, I don't feel like editing a blackface German language journal.

But I found myself in Columbus for something and went by the Library for Trinity Lutheran Seminary, and they had all 30 volumes of the Columbus Theological Magazine in their stacks.  I keyed in the lead article, which, while unsigned, is attributed to the Editor, Matthias Loy.

This article is both an introduction to the Magazine, as well as a critique of Missouri and a presentation of their side - mostly as an extended quote from a Century old Lutheran work.

"Ohio" did collect some key texts into a book "The Error of Modern Missouri".  If you are interested in a more in depth presentation, that will be forthcoming soon.  But this is a essay will let us hear a bit of Ohio in their own words.

EDIT:  I should have said that this is from the Feb 1881 issue of The Columbus Theological Magazine.  Page numbers are from the original journal.
