(Below is an article written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. At the end of Pastor Brock's article I have posted some additional comments and information. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Francisco Herrera, a graduate of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's seminary, Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, doesn't like that John 3:36 teaches that those who reject Christ will be lost. So, in an obscenity-laden "Advent devotional", he says this to the Apostle John:
"...if the God that we serve would condemn such gorgeous souls to eternal torment, let that God stand accursed — and you with him!"
You heard right, this ELCA leader curses John--and God – for teaching that those who reject Christ are lost.
I have read many heresies, but this is one of the worst. Please pray for this man's soul. He is one more reason people should leave the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for a more biblical denomination.
In Jesus our Savior,
Pastor Tom Brock
(Read Francisco Herrera's words here. This was all part of an advent devotional put out by two ELCA pastors, Tuhina Verma Rasche and Jason Chesnut. Note: Language Warning. The advent devotional's title is below).
(If there was any doubt how horrific and vile these devotionals are, take a look at the headings of the following days "devotionals.")
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
