This is good and GCM Watch applauds Lutheran CORE (Coalition for Renewal) for making this decision. Not an easy one, but a necessary one. The apostate wing of the church in America seeks to dominate and control by forcing others to accept abomination.
Some churches are learning there is no such thing as tolerance and equality with these people. The only thing wise to do is to separate yourself and leave them to wallow in their immoral vomit.
Via the Washington Times, we learn that a second Lutheran body has come to that awful realization.
Conservative members of America’s largest Lutheran denomination announced that they are splitting from the Chicago-based Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, making it the second mainline Protestant church to undergo a major schism over the issue of homosexuality and related matters of biblical authority.
If you back up the lens, you’ll see the real issue isnt homosexuality, its that apostates do no acknowledge the authority of God’s word. So it doesnt matter what the issue is, biblical standards are rejected. Now, homosexual acceptance is the issue du jour, a weapon they can use to beat people into submission.
On Wednesday, an 11-member steering committee of Lutheran CORE (Coalition for Renewal), meeting in New Brighton, Minn., said it cannot remain inside the 4.7-million-member ELCA after the denomination agreed at its August churchwide assembly in Minneapolis to ordain partnered gay clergy.
That decision, CORE said in a statement, created “a biblical and theological crisis throughout the ELCA and conflict in local congregations.”
“We are not leaving the ELCA. The ELCA has left us,” said Ryan Schwarz, a steering committee member from the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in McLean, Va. “A lot of people who are planning to leave are telling us, ‘We need you to form a new body that is like a traditional church body.’ “
Well said. Leaving an apostate religious institution should be understood that the schism is caused by those who reject the truth of God’s word.
