The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Commission on Theology and Church Relations has issued evaluations — from a Lutheran perspective — on the beliefs of world religions, religious organizations, and movements.

The CTCR also provides information regarding fraternal organizations and lodges. That section includes a report titled Membership in Certain Fraternal Organizations: A Pastoral Approach, which is an initial resource for pastors, church workers, and lay leaders as they inform congregational members about questions and concerns that may arise regarding membership in certain fraternal organizations.
