The leader of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presiding Bishop, issued a statement via Twitter and Facebook:
"The president used federal troops to clear a path through peaceful protesters in order to stand before an Episcopal church make a statement and hold up a bible. Neither the priest nor the bishop were consulted or warned. Not only was this manipulative it was desecration" (See below).
This statement is highly political, bias and an abuse of her office. Going to a church building, with your Bible, is manipulative? President Trump doing so is an act of desecration? This should be eye-opening to any conservative Bible-believer who remains in the denomination.
Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has gone full-blown extremist in thinking this, let alone making a public declaration of this sort. This denomination has turned their keys over to liberal leftists who Bible-twisting seminaries have been raising up for decades. They are doubling up their efforts to indoctrinate all who will listen.
Staying in the ELCA harms your soul, funds false teaching and the ELCA's destructive efforts, provides a facade of Christianity to onlookers and gives power to the ELCA's collective voice.
It is time to free yourself from the chains of destruction and falsehood that the ELCA has embraced.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Facebook page then shared Presiding Bishop Eaton's statement:
Bishop Michael Rinehart of the ELCA's Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod also voiced his approved of statement:

I found the President's actions encouraging and hopeful for the Church. We will not be defeated. The world may hate us as they did Jesus, but we will persevere. Thank you President Trump for the hope you represent to the Church.

Can you desecrate a fake church? The ELCA, Episcopal, PCUSA, and UCC denominations have long since abandoned Christianity. They're hollowed-out monuments to capitulation and paganism.

Now if we could only get them to drop Lutheran from their name.

She doesn’t know what desecration means. Does she mean like the daily desecration of the gospel perpetrated by the ELCA upper officials in this organization by their words and deeds?

It was over 10 years ago that I was the Christian standing with my Bible and speaking in front of church, and the ELCA didn't like it then either. Of course, back then it didn't take federal troops to make it happen. Considering Elijah did not use tear gas and rubber bullets on the priests of Baal, I think these post-modern pagans should count their blessings -- er, "confess their privileges," in ELCA-speak.

In addition to everything else, disingenuous is the nicest thing anyone could say about the fact that she writes these things not as "Elizabeth Eaton, U.S. citizen," but as "Presiding Bishop, Elizabeth Eaton," as if she spoke for the entire membership of what is left of the ELCA. She has NO WARRANT so to do. It is misleading, at best, for her to make public what can only be her personal (misguided) opinions as if they were those of the entire membership-- let alone the gospel message, itself.

Since Bishop Eaton seems to believe her personal opinions speaks for ALL members, perhaps we could also drop the "Evangelical" part of the ELCA title & substitute Eaton and just call it ECA!

I’m a conservative born-again Christian with no Lutheran background that goes along to get along to an ELCA church with my Lutheran wife. I have refused to attend on multiple occasions when Marxist pastors take the pulpit. But seeing where this increasingly heretical church is going, I’m going to need to take a stand and go to a Bible believing church rather than solely relying on TBN and Daystar for biblical guidance.

Certainly the Episcopal Church is apostate. To find the Bible controversial is a very sad statement on that church body. However it is private property and its owners have a right not to be dragged into statements contrary to their beliefs, regardless of how wrong such beliefs might be. To flip the script, how would Bob Jeffress feel about Obama going to 1st Baptist Dallas waving a rainbow flag on his church steps?
