A few Evangelical Lutheran Church in America leaders are on or were on the board of advisors of World Population Balance, an organization focused on overpopulation and pedaling the idea that families should chose to only have one child.
Lowell Erdahl, retired Bishop of St. Paul Area Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, is currently on the board of advisors, while ELCA college professor Greg Krueger, Augsburg College, formally was on the organization's board of advisors. (See here)
World Population Balance's Mission statement is:
"We alert and educate that overpopulation is the root cause of resource depletion, species extinction, poverty, and climate change. Our mission is to chart a path for human civilization that – rather than causing greater misery – enables good lives on a healthy planet. We advocate and support a smaller, truly sustainable human population – through dramatic and voluntary reduction in birth rates." (See here)
See Ken Ham's Facebook post below about World Population Balance's "One Planet One Child" promotional campaign.
In a related note, ELCA has a long history and record of supporting abortion. See here.
This is what the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has become. It does not resemble Christianity. It does not resemble Christ. The people and churches that continue to support this denomination and continue to be in the ELCA have some answering to do. The ELCA is leading people into sin. They stand for their own beliefs, not for God's instructions.
Choose this day whom you will serve. You can not serve God and the ELCA.
Living Lutheran magazine tells story of ELCA transgender pastor: “I’d always liked wearing women’s clothing”
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Nicole Garcia was born a man, married a woman, and then divorced. After that time he went to a transgender conference and discovered “I’d always been a woman. The weight lifted from my shoulders and, for the first time in my life, I felt at peace. I claimed myself as Nicole.” “She” then joined a congregation of the liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and “fell in love with Lutheran theology...Now, as an ELCA pastor, I proclaim the gospel of love and inclusion of my savior, Jesus Christ. The ELCA has embraced me.￼” This article appeared in the official magazine of the ELCA in its September 2020 edition.
Today one can be a practicing homosexual pastor and also a practicing transgender pastor and lead a congregation of the ELCA. And the ELCA continues to shrink in members and donations.
As I have said before, ELCA really stands for “Extremely Liberal Church in America” or “Everything Luther Cautioned Against” or “Every Lutheran Confession Abandoned.”￼￼
In Jesus our Savior,
Pastor Tom Brock
