A post last week by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is extremely disturbing. The ELCA official Facebook page published a post wishing people a "blessed Ramadan." This is encouraging a teaching and religion that is opposed to Christian beliefs. Kindness and love are Christian tenets, but the ELCA's belief in universalism, that all people are saved, has taken them to a place where they bless the practice of false religions and encourage people participating in them.
Even more disturbing, in the same Facebook post, is the statement made by the ELCA: "This month commemorating the revelation of the Qur’an is a month of intense spiritual rejuvenation, devotion, and reflection" (italics mine). "Revelation," according to Lexico.com, is defined as "the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence or the world."
The ELCA, by their own words, is saying that the Qur'an has divine origins, that it was given and disclosed by God!
The Qur'an was written long after the New Testament and clearly states that Jesus is not the son of God. This reality, among other examples of the Qur'an not being a Christian resource, reveals a toxic sentiment by the ELCA that is opposed to orthodox teaching. It is heretical and evil of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to post that the Qur'an is a revelation, from God. God's Word in Galatians 1:6-7 tells us "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ."
How far the ELCA has fallen. They twist, distort and deny God's Word but lift up a different religion's writings as being from God. It is time to leave this denomination that has left the Truth.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
