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.

The ELCA's heresies and apostasies don't save, they don't fulfill Jesus' Great Commission, and they don't cultivate faithful followers of Jesus. What the false teachings do is deceitfully give impenitent sinners false assurances of heaven.

Years ago, I walked the halls of my alma matter with my son who was a toddler at the time. He saw a picture of a nude voluptuous woman crucified on a cross. He inquired about the picture and I went over to read the accompanying information. It was a post by the professor mentioned above. The good Professor Amy Marga was encouraging students to take her new "mujerista" theology class. The picture said it all. I knew then that Luther Seminary was bound to shrivel and eventually die. In the mid-nineties you could still get a decent education there. So sad what they have become now...I haven't been back for years...
