ELCA tweets "traditional Native spiritual practices are inherently Christian and are accepted forms of worship."
The ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission tweeted about the ELCA American Indian/Alaska Native Lutheran Association recently. One of the missions of that group states:
"Work toward unity in the community of faith by pledging ourselves to promote the understanding that many traditional Native spiritual practices are inherently Christian and are accepted forms of worship."
Most Christians should be very concerned about this position.
We are told in Scripture -
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. - Galatians 1:6-10.

OK to Embrace "Religious Hybridity"
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.
And this ELCA church posts this picture?
