"Queer4Jesus" ELCA pastor says church is "tool of Satan" to deny "who you love is what was meant for you"
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
The below is a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He is "married" to a man and is upset the pope recently spoke against homosexual behavior. He writes in his Facebook post: 'Queerly Beloved, The church as an institution has theology that's about preserving power rather than radical love. Don't listen to it. It's a tool of Satan. Listen to the voice in your soul that tells you that you belong, that you are worth love, that the way you love and who you love is what was meant for you. That's the voice of God and it's more important than the voice of any institution."
It is tragic that the ELCA allows this person to be in pastoral leadership, a person who claims the "voice within" is what we should follow. No, Lutherans and all Christians follow the Scriptures. The "voice within" (our fallen human nature) will tell us anything we want to hear, which is why we need the Bible to guard us from deception and destruction.
Please pray many, many people leave the ELCA.
In Jesus our Savior,
Pastor Tom Brock
