ELCA Goddess Worship: Honoring, Celebrating and Singing a Hymn to Inanna / Ishtar
Goddess worship is and has been occurring in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Ebenezer Lutheran Church, otherwise known as "Herchurch," in San Francisco, has long been known for goddess worship and is a church in good-standing with the ELCA. (See goddess worshiping articles here)
In February 2019, Herchurch held a Sunday worship service that they describe this way (also see below), "we honor and celebrate Sister Wisdom who comes to guide us and Inanna (Ancient Queen of Heaven and Earth). The Liturgy provides a sacred time and space in which the community and individual encounters and responds to the loving, creative, challenging, empowering, prophetic wisdom and word of the divine feminine." At this service they will have an "original Hymn to Inanna" with a "Sacred Dance."
Wikipedia tells us "Inanna is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, justice, and political power. She was originally worshipped in Sumer and was later worshipped by the Akkadians, Babylonians, and Assyrians under the name Ishtar. She was known as the 'Queen of Heaven'" (See here)
The One True God tells us in His Word:
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.”
- Exodus 20:2, 3

It is the right of all individuals to worship as each chooses in this country. As a mainline Protestant I believe it is time for all true Christians to stand up and demand that those belonging to these apostate heretical organizations remove the term Christian from their names. If they do not uphold the teachings of Christ and the Scripture on which He based those teachings, why would they want to include His name in their organizations?
