Yet Another Pro-Homosexual Article from ELCA Magazine: Lutheran Congregation Plants 300 Rainbow Flags
(The following article was written by Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Wicker Park Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, was featured this month in the ELCA's national magazine Living Lutheran. Living Lutheran regularly presents pro-gay and pro-transgender stories but never allows the traditional viewpoint of homosexuality and rejected a request for advertising from a conservative ministry to homosexuals.
In the October issue, it was reported that Wicker Park Lutheran planted 300 rainbow flags in the garden in front of the church to show their support for the LGBTQIA+ cause. The congregation also co-sponsored a summer movie night "with a table covered with rainbow and transgender flags where kids and adults drew messages of God's love". The church also hosts a monthly Bible study in which "both a person's LGBTQIA+ identity and their Christian identity can be accepted and celebrated".
How far removed the ELCA has become from Biblical Christianity. The Bible teaches that one cannot be a practicing homosexual and a Christian at the same time (I Corinthians 6:9-11), but don't try to find that view in Living Lutheran. They have pretty much banned it, in spite of the fact that the 2009 ELCA decision stated the ELCA would respect both conservative and liberal views on homosexuality. Not anymore.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
