Luther Seminary Preacher 'Heartbroken' that Methodists Reject Homosexuality, Says Jesus Calls Us to Dismantle Heterosexism
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Luther Seminary is a seminary of the ELCA. They have had homosexual and transgender preachers at Luther chapel but to my knowledge since 2009 they have not had one preacher uphold the traditional viewpoint on homosexuality. So much for “diversity and inclusivity” at Luther.
Today Luther’s seminary pastor, Reverend Justin Lind-Ayers, preached a seminary chapel sermon stating that he was heartbroken over the Methodists’ rejection of homosexuality. If you want to hear a heretical use of Jesus to promote homosexuality, start at minute 20 in the below video. Three of the lowlights of his sermon:
“I have heard the voice of Jesus emboldening the defiant acts of justice”.
Lind-Ayers believes “the voice of Jesus” is calling us to “dismantle heterosexism”.
Lind-Ayers praises the “amazing God-given gifts of the LGBTQIA community.”
I am sad and angry that my alma mater, Luther Seminary, has become captive to the spirit of the age instead of captive to the Holy Spirit. I am sad they have embraced the world and not the Word.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
