Evangelical Lutheran Church in America head bishop Elizabeth Eaton has stated “When we take a look at people’s sexual orientation or gender identity, it’s not completely binary. Everybody isn’t male or everybody isn’t female. There’s a whole spectrum to that. I think that’s something that’s new for a lot of our people to think about, but it’s the truth…”.
No, Bishop Eaton, it is not the truth. Jesus said God “made us male and female” (Matthew 19:4).
Tap (below) to see what the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America just posted for gay pride month. Like one person commented: "This is good advertising to join the Missouri Synod Lutherans."
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
PS We are "perfectly and wonderfully made, just as we are"? Whatever happened to the doctrine of original sin (Romans 5) which teaches "we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind" (Ephesians 2:3)?
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:
Each of us is a beloved child of God, perfectly and wonderfully made, just as we are. Thanks to ReconcilingWorks for this Lutheran introduction to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
