ELCA pastor Lynnae Sorensen made this stunning statement when giving her Easter sermon:
“It doesn't matter to me if you believe in the physical or a spiritual resurrection. It doesn't matter to me if you believe in an apparition or a vision or some other kind of mystery. What matters to me is if your belief is lived out in your faith.” (see video below)
Lynnae Sorensen is the senior pastor at Abiding Love Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas. Her seminary schooling was through “The Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest, an extension program of the ELCA’s Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and Wartburg Theological Seminary.” Before becoming an ELCA pastor Lynnae, “worked in youth ministry, campus ministry and as an ELCA missionary in Slovakia for five years.” (read here)
What does your ELCA educated pastor believe about Jesus' resurrection and why is Rev. Sorensen's thinking on the resurrection allowed in the ELCA and its seminaries?

How much better -- salvific, even -- it would be if the unfortunate souls languishing under the ELCA's heretical preaching and teaching were to kick out their Pastor Postmodern Revisionist and hire a part-timer to preach nothing but Martin Luther's sermons.

Why even call yourself Lutheran if you don't believe what Luther said?

St. Paul writes: "Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is also vain. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up - in fact if the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most pitiable." (I Corinthians 15:12-19)

After his resurrection, Jesus had A body; it was not a NATURAL human body. Preachers bent on describing it as a "reanimated corpse" aren't reading their Bibles carefully.

1 Cor. 15:17 "And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins."

Thankfully the ELCA I occasionally attended never preached such nonsense.
