Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenville, South Carolina is hosting a drag show. (see below) Trinity Lutheran Church is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The church has over 1200 baptized members.
A bishop in the ELCA is teaching that the three faithful Jewish followers of God; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, whom we read about in Scripture (Daniel 3), were transgender slaves.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America bishop Megan Rohrer, is transgender. And in a Facebook post last weekend, she shared her youtube video of her retelling this story. The video is titled "Transgender slaves Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego Follow God When Fancy People Do Not." (See here)
In one part of the Bishop's retelling of the story the ELCA bishop talks about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego eating different foods than the others in the King's court saying,
"they were able to get away
with it because their bodies continued
to please the king
and others in the court who liked to
look at them
and probably other stuff"
How can any faithful follower of Jesus remain in a denomination whose leaders are twisting and teaching falsely God's Word?
'Openly queer' preacher at Luther Seminary experienced Christ’s 'resurrection' by embracing his bisexuality
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Go to minute 25:20 below and watch this bisexual senior student preach how he experienced Jesus Christ by embracing his bisexuality. Long ago I preached my senior sermon at Luther Seminary, a seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Back then Luther was somewhat liberal, today it has become radical.
I am grieved by what has happened to my seminary.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
The ELCA's Greater Milwaukee Synod Bishop, Paul Erickson, wrote a letter a couple weeks ago "Affirming our LGBTQIA+ Siblings". (See the Facebook post at the end of the blog or here)
As Christians we need to love people. But the ELCA is making a detrimental mistake encouraging thoughts that go against what God has said. It is NOT an act of love encouraging people to believe their desire for sexual relations with someone of the same sex or their wanting to be anything other than their gender is "good" or is "God's will."
God did not make people homosexual. God did not make people one gender at birth and want them to live as the opposite gender. Encouraging people to live out their sinful desires is detrimental to spiritual and physical and mental health.
Satan has deceived so many and he has religious leaders encouraging destructive behavior.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
