Well, we all knew it would happen. Even the ELCA bishops did. The same bishops that tried to tell their conservative members that "blessing" and "hold publicly accountable" did not mean marriage.
The ELCA is performing, endorsing, and encouraging marriage ceremonies. Oh, the glee I'm sure the ELCA bishops and pastors have to see it all happening. It's like a dream come true, for them. Funny thing is, these "Christian" leaders are leading their flock into lifestyles of sin. All with a big smile on their face.
God loves all people, including those caught up in the homosexual lifestyle, but His message to sinners is always "go and sin no more." If the ELCA leaders were truly doing God's work they would be lovingly encouraging people to stop sinning and then help them in their effort.
But here it is, folks, the weddings have begun, and the Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church in Salem, NH, an ELCA church, lead by Rev. David Yasenka is proud as punch. Lynn weds Kate. (article and video)
If you don't agree with homosexuality, in Rev. Yasenka opinion, it is probably time for you to consider moving on. So, in other words, if you believe what God says in the Bible, you are not welcome in the ELCA.
Like Rev. Yasenka, I too believe it is time to get out of a denomination that holds their views so high and God's views so low.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
