The Future of the ELCA
As more and more ELCA churches and individual members leave the ELCA, you will see the denomination's theology increase in it's rejection of scripture. The ELCA will grow more liberal in their policies. It is inevitable. The people and churches leaving the ELCA are. for the most part, conservative, bible believing Christians. They stand on Jesus being the only way to salvation. They believe that the Bible is God's word and true. These people are leaving the denomination.
Over 300 churches have left the ELCA so far and hundreds more will follow.
In every ELCA church, there are members who have left because of the ELCA's rejection of God's word (as they should.) Likely in the hundreds of thousands.
Those left in the ELCA will be people that accept the ELCA's views and policies, or people that are indifferent to those views or people that don't want to leave the ELCA no matter what the ELCA teaching and beliefs are.
Look where the ELCA leadership has already lead us. Does anyone believe they wont continue in the direction they are already headed? With less people to oppose those policies and decisions?
Watch! It's coming. The policies and demands will be more and more out of line with the God's teaching in scripture. It's happening already, and every year it will get worse.

Some are staying in the ELCA in order to point out the errors in its policies and in order to point out the truths found in the scriptures. I am also reminded that we need to continue to pray for leaders to rise up both in the ELCA and outside of it--to lead us as God wills.

That's true Kim. I maybe should have said that in the blog. I guess I just figured with Word Alone leaving and Lutheran CORE starting a new denomination a large percentage of the people trying to lead the ELCA back to scriptures were gone.
