Elle Dowd is a highly controversial pastoral intern, but she is not controversial in her denomination, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). In the ELCA she is perfectly normal and accepted. Elle Dowd has over 4000 followers on her "public figure" Facebook page and is an example of what ELCA seminaries are producing. The ELCA leader's Facebook "about" section says "Elle Dowd (she/her/hers) is a bi-furious seminarian at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and a candidate for ordained ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America currently serving as the full time pastoral intern." (See here)
The following documents Elle Dowd's thoughts and agenda. This is only a small sample. You can also read more about the future ELCA pastor here.
Manifest: A Queer Journey to the Epiphany was held by the ELCA's House of All Sinners and Saints church. This is the former church of popular ELCA pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber.
"(F)ocusing on the queer genealogy of Jesus..." the "Journey" was led by drag queens and parts were offered for children.
See the evil being perpetrated by Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Last year House for All Sinners and Saints hired a new pastor, Rev. Tory Moir. Rev. Moir is an Episcopalian, which means the ELCA church's two pastors are Episcopal ministers. Rev. Moir likes to be referred to with the pronouns they, them, and theirs. (See here)
Well-Known ELCA Pastor Shares Quote Saying "There Is No Such Thing as Eternal Damnation"
Calling it a "momentous book," ELCA pastor Clint Schnekloth, a universalist (see here), shared the following quote on Facebook from the book "That All Shall Be Saved."
"There is no such thing as eternal damnation; all will be saved." (See below)
The ELCA teaches and promotes the dangerous, heretical and false belief that everyone goes to heaven, no matter if they believe and trust in Christ. So according to the ELCA people who are not Christ followers, people who worship other deity and even followers of Satan, will all go to heaven.
Exposing the ELCA documents this, and you can view articles and evidence of their teaching here and here.
There is no doubt that because of the ELCA's false teaching on salvation, many people will end up in hell.
