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."
This is what the ELCA has become. A denomination where their pastors/leaders reject the clear teaching of God and in this case, are in favor of people sleeping together (having sex) before marriage. (See Hebrews 13:4 to learn what God has to say on this topic, for starters). Seems God's Word is just ignored now in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
ELCA members should ask themselves what their current ELCA pastor believes, and does not believe, when it comes to God's Word? Additionally, contemplate what future pastors in your church family, trained by the ELCA, will believe about God's Word and what they will be teaching the congregation.
