A woke ELCA article about white "privilege" has gotten some chastisement on their social media page.
An African-American man who is an ELCA Lutheran told them he is "tired of all the hand wringing the ELCA has done over not being inclusive enough, and not being demographically correct." He goes on to say "For Pete’s sake, we’re an ethnic denomination, brought here by Germans and Scandinavians…and there’s nothing wrong with that. There are lots of ethnic denominations…Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, etc, who are unapologetic about the fact that they’re ethnic."
Read his comments posted below and also those of a couple other who responded to the article:
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is targeting youth by way of ELCA summer camps for kids. The ELCA's Living Lutheran reports,
"On Feb. 4, the ELCA announced the initiative Total Inclusion! Widening the Welcome at ELCA Outdoor Ministries. The program, made possible by Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, is designed to equip and empower outdoor ministry organizations as they move toward more intentional welcome of people who historically have been marginalized in the church—especially people of color, people with disabilities and people who identify as LGBTQIA+." (see article here)
The ELCA has been championing the gay, lesbian and transgender agenda for over a decade. Don't be fooled by the word "Welcome." The ELCA is making a strong push to celebrate and encourage these lifestyles among young people. They are sending a clear message.
ELCA churches and members who believe God's Word have to ask why they remain in a denomination that is harming people and teaching in direct opposition to God's will. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, and the ELCA is standing in opposition to the Holy Spirit. They are actively working against God, who wants us to turn from sin, to repent of our sinful ways.
When was the last time the ELCA and Lutheran CORE, which holds to a Biblical view of marriage and sexuality, were featured in an ELCA publication?
This is from the ELCA magazine Living Lutheran. This ELCA Pastor, Emmy Kegler, wrote the LGBT focused article and tweeted that the magazine is sent to all ELCA congregations and pastors. The ELCA places LGBT supportive articles in almost every issue. An insidious way to indoctrinate ELCA membership.
