Matthew 18:6 - "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
The ELCA will have to answer to God for their wickedness. They continue to encourage Christians who struggle with same-sex attraction to act on their sinful desires. In 2009 the ELCA essentially declared homosexuality good, that it was not sinful but the way God created some people. At the 2013 churchwide assembly the ELCA passed three more memorials centering on homosexuality.
The articles by ReconcilingWorks, a Lutheran LGBT rights organization explain the memorials from their point of view:
Also at the 2013 ELCA CW Assembly the newly-elected Presiding Bishop let it be known that she believes the 2009 ELCA homosexuality votes were the right decision (read here) and the man voted to be the Secretary of the ELCA is a vocal advocate for homosexual marriage. (read here)
While we are on this topic check out the letter 3 ELCA Bishops in California wrote affirming the right for ELCA churches to perform gay marriages. Of course ReconcilingWorks applauds the statement. (read here)
The ELCA... leading people deeper into sin.

The illicit-sex-obsessed ELCA can ordain and hire every homosexual it can recruit, but it might want to note that the Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that Bible-honoring churches aren't obligated to kowtow to the world's employment demands.

The ELCA wants to make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender IDENTITY--that means men who think they are women and vice versa. If you think that's too crazy to be taken seriously, keep in mind that the state of California has already passed a law requiring all schools to allow gender-confused students to use the bathroom of the opposite sex. (See "Open Bathrooms and California's War on Kids: A Daddy's Perspective," posted at Juicy Ecumenism.)

The ELCA claims, in effect, that all the world's inhabitants have a God-given right to American citizenship, though it makes no such claim about citizenship in other countries. So why is America unique? Is it because we're a Christian nation? ELCA churchmen can't answer that question because they know nothing about Christianity. But the Bible says that it is God, not the ELCA, who determines the boundaries and habitation of nations (Acts 17:26).

Did anyone notice that the September issue of "The Lutheran" reported that the ELCA is now considering communicating the unbaptized? It seems to me that that would be making a mockery of a Christian symbol (or sacrament) that is no to be taken lightly. "Whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himsalf, not discerning the Lord's body." 1 Corinthians 11:27-29
