Jim Hazelwood is the bishop of the ELCA's New England Synod. He uses his Twitter account mostly to spew his politics and anger at President Trump. The following is just a small sample of his tweets over the last few months.
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America transgender pastor Dr. Megan Rohrer was featured in an article and video by Cosmopolitan. (See video below. The video and article can be seen here)
Rev. Rohrer is the first transgender ordained in the ELCA and the ordination took place at a goddess worshiping ELCA church in San Francisco, known as herchurch.
"Blessed be the God and [Parent] of our Lord Jesus Christ..."
That is what an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) seminary wrote when announcing the death of two people connected with the seminary. They replaced "Father" with "Parent."
Jesus called God "Father." Why is this ELCA seminary not content using the same name for God that the Lord Jesus Christ did?
From the sound and look of this tweet, by seminarian Kevin Beebe (in 2016), Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary may have been providing condoms to their seminary students. Mr. Beebe writes, "#PLTS caring about sexual health and resources for assault and abuse. @ELCA @ELCAYoungAdults #theologyinpractice". Then he posted a picture of a basket full of condoms and brochures.
This woman's ELCA church takes young teenagers to places where false gods are worshiped.
See the tweet here.
Below is a Facebook post that the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC), an ELCA seminary, shared. Under the homosexual rainbow banner, the prayer addresses the United Methodist Church (UMC), which will be voting on allowing homosexual weddings and practicing ordained homosexuals. The prayer talks about "being a more inclusive and loving church."
And read the second paragraph. The ELCA continues to push their LGBTQ supportive narrative on its membership and give no credence or equal time to the Biblical view on homosexuality and marriage.
How can anyone, who believes the Biblical view of marriage and homosexuality, feel welcome in a denomination that sees this traditional view as wrong, unloving and hurtful?
Below is a tweet by ELCA Pastor Lenny Duncan, with a "like" from ELCA Pastor Emily Scott, regarding the United Methodist Church (UMC).
The following is a response by ELCA pastor John Sipf of Peoria, Illinois, to my tweet replying to another ELCA pastor. We were discussing this blog about an ELCA pastor giving the camera the finger and his rant against America.
ELCA pastor John Sipf regularly tweets and retweets about white people, racism, politics, Donald Trump, refugees and illegal immigrants, transgenders, abortion, etc. Below are a few examples of his activity on Twitter.
From ELCA pastor Emmy Kegler -
Below is one egregious example of a tweet by ELCA Rev. Joy Gonnerman.
Are there any Bible-believing, orthodox individuals going to ELCA seminaries?
The ELCA's Reformation Lutheran Church in Columbia, SC offered an adult Sunday school class called "Being Thankful for Ourselves: LGBTQIA+ Affirmations." As you can see, it was very affirming of homosexuality and transgenderism.
We all know the ELCA seminaries are filled with liberal, Bible-rejecting seminarians waiting to become ELCA pastors. But Rev. Dan G Olson reminds us that liberal and partisan pastors have been serving the ELCA for many years. Look at what he has been posting on his Facebook page this year. See his view of people who want to defund Planned Parenthood and believe marriage is between one man and one woman. Also notice the view of those who are supporters of President Trump in the second post.
Diana Edis is an ELCA pastor. She enjoys pushing here radical social justice beliefs on social media. And she is apparently a big proponent of Planned Parenthood.
ELCA seminarian Elle Dowd has this to say about ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). "ICE is a terrorist organization. ICE is the Gestapo. ICE is Boke Haram."
Then ELCA Pastor Ryan Chaddick of American Lutheran Church in Burbank, CA posted his support for Elle Dowd's statement on Exposing the ELCA's Facebook page. Read more about Elle Dowd here.
As mentioned above, ELCA Pastor Ryan Chaddick wrote this comment on Exposing the ELCA's Facebook page under the posting of this blog about ICE.
Homosexual ELCA Pastor Kevin Strickland, is the Assistant to the Presiding Bishop of the ELCA. He also, as seen below, is a "Trans* Ally."
Diana Edis is an ELCA pastor at Breath Of Life Lutheran Church in Blythewood, South Carolina. Here is a prayer she shared on her Facebook page from the LGBT rights religious organization, ReconcilingWorks. It asks the "Living Spirit" to "teach us to embrace all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions."
An ELCA member tweets "I spoke to the former presiding bishop of the ELCA a few months ago, & he said, it is A-OK to embrace "religious hybridity".
If true, this is truly disturbing.
