If you Google "Resurrection Lutheran Church Chicago" you will find a very, very pro-homosexual ELCA congregation.
Pastor Brian Hiortdahl wrote this about a homosexual member who died:
"Frank recounted his heartbreak for Richard, his beloved partner, as he watched him die slowly of AIDS. Today Frank and Richard are reunited in God's embrace. But before he died, Frank left us two remarkable gifts." (see here)
The pastor then goes on to say Frank left the church a generous bequest of money.
Reunited in heaven? The Bible teaches that those who persist in impenitent sin will not be saved, including the sin of homosexual behavior (I Corinthians 6:9-11). How tragic that a pastor would tell people that they can live in impenitent sin and go to heaven. I am sure, however, that this pastor would not say homosexual behavior is a sin. That is what happens when people refuse to submit to the authority of Scripture. They make things up as they go.
In Jesus our Savior,
Pastor Tom Brock
