I graduated many years ago from Luther Seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It was moderate to liberal back then, today it is radically liberal.
Witness the below screenshot of a recent chapel service. You will see Professor Amy Marga preaching and her preferred pronouns are listed in order to be gay/trans sensitive. You’ll also notice she doesn’t use the word “his” for God and avoids masculine pronouns for God. Later in this same service, God is prayed to as a “Holy fool”.
Luther chapel in the past brought in a transgender preacher who prayed to God as “Our Mother in heaven“. Luther chapel has also observed National Coming Out Day for homosexuals and also the Transgender Week of Remembrance. Luther chapel has also had deep breathing meditation and Native American smudging during some worship services.
A few years ago Luther Seminary, because of failing finances, had to sell off some of its buildings. Today attendance is much lower than when I was there.
This is what happens when a denomination leaves the authority of Scripture. It slowly shrinks and dies.
