ELCA National Assembly Votes to Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Ordaining Practicing Homosexuals, as Delegates Announce their 'Preferred Pronouns'
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
If you go to minute 58:30 of the video below and watch for about 7 minutes, you will see the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America discuss whether to celebrate their decision 10 years ago to ordain practicing homosexuals, a decision that caused the biggest church split in American history and which caused the ELCA huge membership loss. You will notice the delegates announce their preferred pronouns before they speak. One ELCA lesbian pastor, who is “married” to another ELCA lesbian pastor, speaks with emotion. After the discussion, delegates voted 91 per cent to celebrate their defiance of Scripture.
ELCA membership and donations are shrinking, ELCA seminaries are downsizing, one seminary has closed, but the ELCA forges ahead in affirming homosexuality and transgenderism.
I encourage you to watch a few minutes of the below. This is the bizarre new world of the ELCA where delegates tell us what their preferred pronouns are, whether those pronouns match their God-given anatomy or not.
In Jesus our Savior,

Meanwhile, confessional Lutherans/Christians continue to celebrate Jesus, Who "did not practice affirmational inclusion — meaning, He did not meet sinners where they were and affirm them in their sin. Rather, He practiced transformational inclusion — meaning, He met sinners where they were and transformed them.”

I have a friend on Facebook who regularly posts regarding "the mentally ill on Twitter."

This is not mental illness. This libertinism that promugated by emotional self-interest express as a religious right. Some may be mentally or emotionally unstable, but it is ignoring Scriptual Truth for affirming or accepting sin as good.

Presumably you would agree that "transgenderism" is a mental illness, i.e., severe delusional belief and behavior? I think the same can be said of those who treat the alimentary canal as a sex organ.

Why would they, how can they continue to use the word Lutheran in their name? They are not following Martin Luther's teachings.

My parents give money in my name to the long-time family church (now an ELCA church) so I do get their monthly newsletter. Its a moderately conservative congregation with a pastor I have always liked.

Thinking more about this... no mention by the ELCA assembly of 50% of America's black population missing due to abortion.

One other thought as I read his column and his mention of "Gender Justice Policy"... well hie is mostly quoting Bishop Laurie Skow-Anderson. My traditional Christian parents have given very large amounts of money to their ECLA church. When the pastor gives his talks or writes about the financial needs of this church, how come he never mentions abortion or open borders or how evil white people are? Or the ELCA's support of anti-Semitic hate groups in the Mid-East?
