Ivy Gauvin is an ELCA pastor at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Bemus Point, New York. She writes that students were penalized if they used gendered names for God at her ELCA seminary.
"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.
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).
Kevin Beebe is an ELCA "Pastor-to-Be" studying at the ELCA's Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary. He loves to post LGBT supportive information, Palestinian propaganda against Israel, and anti-Trump materials on social media. This is the type of pastor the ELCA has, and is producing to lead your congregation.
The ELCA seminarian supports the BDS movement, which advocates boycotts, divestment, and sanctions against Israel, as you see below.
Here future pastor Beebe complains about Israel building an underground wall to prevent Palestinian terrorist tunnels used to invade and kill Israelis. That is mind-numbing stupid.
Finally, a post sharing the vile devotional made by two ELCA pastors. (language warning)
