No, because of theological reasons that someone smarting than me can explain, and because the CC doesn't change theology - the LWF changes/loses theology depending upon who they are in an ecumenical dialogue with so that there can be an agreement (like the JDDJ, although the majority of Lutherans didn't change their theology since it was so vague).
The whole intention of the JDDJ is not that one or the other "change theology", but that, through the guidance of the Spirit, that we come to convergence.
How is this vague? And how does this not fit historic Lutheran and Catholic understandings of Justification?
15.In faith we together hold the conviction that justification is the work of the triune God. The Father sent his Son into the world to save sinners. The foundation and presupposition of justification is the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ. Justification thus means that Christ himself is our righteousness, in which we share through the Holy Spirit in accord with the will of the Father. Together we confess: By grace alone, in faith in Christ's saving work and not because of any merit on our part, we are accepted by God and receive the Holy Spirit, who renews our hearts while equipping and calling us to good works.
16.All people are called by God to salvation in Christ. Through Christ alone are we justified, when we receive this salvation in faith. Faith is itself God's gift through the Holy Spirit who works through word and sacrament in the community of believers and who, at the same time, leads believers into that renewal of life which God will bring to completion in eternal life.
Is it possible for *"The Lutheran churches and the Roman Catholic Church [to listen together] to the good news proclaimed in Holy Scripture. This common listening, together with the theological conversations of recent years, has led to a shared understanding of justification. This encompasses a consensus in the basic truths; the differing explications in particular statements are compatible with it." *?
So the LWF could pretty much say they believed in any theological thing because pretty much the only thing required to believe is the Trinity, and Jesus Christ's Incarnation and Resurrection.
I guess to know this for sure, one would have to ask members of the LWF to confirm or deny it.
