You may remember Exposing the ELCA's blog discussing ELCA Pastor Clint Schnekloth. (read here) He pastors Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Fayetteville, AR, which is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). On April 7, 2015, Good Shepherd Lutheran made an announcement on their Facebook page:
“JOURNEY TOGETHER FAITHFULLY, our congregational study of issues related to faith and human sexuality, continues Sunday, April 12 at 10:00 am in the Fellowship Hall with a Transgender Panel open to the public. GSLC will welcome (two transgender persons) to share their personal stories and how they reconcile being a trans person and a Christian. Please join us for this informative panel and Q&A session. Reservations are not required.” (see here and here)
Following the Sunday morning transgender panel at Good Shepherd Lutheran, this post was made by Pastor Schnekloth on the ELCA Clergy Facebook page:
“Our transgender and Christian forum today was crowded and incredible. Lots to ponder, including the comparison between being born again and transitioning, and in general how much transition is tied into Christian faith. Amazing morning!” (see here)
Clint Schnekloth's church split a few months ago and shortly thereafter Pastor Schnekloth is presenting to his congregation the similarities of being born again and transitioning from one gender to the other. Just another example of the ELCA and its congregations celebrating sin instead of leading people to the cross for repentance and forgiveness. Grace cannot be fully experienced when sin is not acknowledged.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
