If I had to pick the very worst moment of the year 2022, I might pick one that I did not list below, namely, when head bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America went to the White House to advocate for abortion rights. Or, it might be when she produced yet another gay pride video promoting the LGBTQAI+ agenda.
Below are 12 of the worst moments of the year for ELCA Lutherans:
January: ELCA’s first transgender bishop reads storybook she wrote to help children accept transgenderism
February: The national church council of the ELCA affirms “gender-non-binary, gender-fluid, women, men and other genders”
March: Canadian Lutheran pastor: Jesus did not die for our sins and God the Father needs to step down for sexually assaulting Mary
April: “Openly queer” preacher at ELCA’s Luther Seminary embraces his bisexuality, and thus experiences “resurrection”
May: Radically liberal Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago is forced to sell off its buildings
June: Roe v. Wade is overturned and head ELCA bishop urges Lutherans to advocate for abortion rights
July: ELCA’s Living Lutheran magazine says to use LGBT pronouns or people may kill themselves
August: ELCA’s national assembly practices Native American smudging and praying to the four winds
September: ELCA’s United Theological Seminary hosts “out and proud” transgender advocate, saying “she is a father…”
October: ELCA Lutheran lesbian bishop sings “Homosexual is not in the Bible”
November: “Brazenly queer” male professor at Pacific Lutheran University says “I will wear skirts and blouses when I preach in chapel”
December: More attacks on God the Father from Living Lutheran magazine article: God language needs to be inclusive “of all genders and no gender”
The above heresies abound not just in the ELCA, but also in the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church in America, the Presbyterian Church USA, the United Methodists, the Disciples of Christ, and the Reformed Church in America.
In spite of all this darkness, this week let us praise God that He sent His Son into the world to save us from the craziness and destructiveness of sin. Jesus is the only light of the world and He offers forgiveness of sins and eternity in heaven for all who will put their trust in him.
May you have a wonderful Christmas celebrating our new-born King, Jesus Christ, the light of the world.

If you're a confessional Christian, ELCA member, resolve this new year of 2023 to leave the ELCA and find a church that preaches Law and Gospel, both for your own sake and for the sake of those whom the world and godless churches like the ELCA are leading toward eternal destruction.

I attend an ELCA church in KY and thankfully, there hasn't been a sign of this woke nonsense for 3 years. We are still a conservative body of mostly older people. Our pastor is also older in his mid 60s. I also cannot remain Lutheran if I leave this church as there isn't another one for 50 miles. I just might make a motion for the church to leave ELCA though. Before I moved here I was at a strong LCMS church in FL so I am familiar with a good law and gospel sermon too.

Having left the ELCA over 10 years ago when the ELCA voted to allow same sex marriages to be performed and pastors to be gay I knew it would only get worse and boy has it! Our Pastor also began questioning the Bible as the word of God. This was the final straw. By the way I first began questioning ELCA when they removed Christian church for Catholic Church (I know the meaning of catholic) and it turns out this was the beginning of the end of ELCA as I knew it for almost 80 years.
