A couple of articles I recommend for your review that were posted on Lutheran sites but written by non-Lutherans:
"24 Hours -Plain as Day" by Dr. Jud Davis of Tyndale College. He specifically addresses a topic being discussed currently on the ALPB site regarding whether the days of creation were 24 hour days or not. This article is posted on the Christian News site, but came originally, as far as I can see, from the Answers in Genesis site. Dr. Davis is an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church of Amercia.
"Osteen: 'God Wants to Supersize Your Joy' - So what's wrong with that?" This is posted on the Steadfast Lutherans site.
