Tomorrow April 18th between 1-2 pm Bethel will be in court defending our religious freedom and our belief in the authority of Holy Scripture. 31 plantiffs are suing Bethel on behalf of the ELCA Nebraska Synod to over turn the decision of a 75% majority vote of the congregation to leave the ELCA.
Please pray that the judge will see this law suit for what it is, frivolous, as well as to see that this is a matter of difference in religious doctrine thus the court has no subject matter jurisdiction and throw it out. Although this is our prayer we at Bethel are willing to continue to stand and confess our faith in the face of continued persecution if the Lord wills it to be so.
Please also pray for the repentance of the 31 plaintiffs. Please pray that the Lord will send them a true preacher, one who points to Christ alone, that will preach to them the Lord's authoritative Word of law and gospel in a way that causes them to turn from their current action and return to orthodox confession of faith.
Please stand in agreement with us in the Name of Jesus Christ.
