On April 11 it all changed. The denomination has dropped all pretenses, policies and procedures barring unrepentant homosexuals from ministry and membership. The harlot is now out in the open with her new bed partner. This act is something out of the dark ages of sin, but gay christians are hailing it as “gift of love and truth”.
Leave it up to the leftist Huffington Post to trumpet the news via a gay christian operative named Rev. Cindi Love, a former MCC gay cleric. That needed to be said to understand the obvious glee over this tragic lurch into apostasy.
“After twenty-five years of deliberation, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Church Council has abolished its anti-gay policies, effective immediately. Following from discussions at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly last summer, the ELCA will now allow people in same-sex relationships to serve as rostered leaders. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) human beings are no longer considered abominations but blessed church members with full standing. Same-sex partners and families can now fully participate in the ELCA Pension Plan.
Best of all, the ELCA is reinstating people who were removed from ministry positions because they were truthful and came out of the closet, as well as those who conducted holy unions for non-heterosexual couples. The ELCA has practiced restorative justice.”
Love’s commentary is a composite proof of all that we have said about the gay christian movement and its adherents. The gcm carries a cancerous spiritual disease which has no regard for God, his Word or his church. Its goal is to pervert and infect every possible organization bearing the name of Jesus Christ. Sound hard? Rough? Insensitive? Only because you have not yet become fully aware of the spiritual danger this movement poses. In case you feel inclined to argue, make sure you use our blog search and take some time to read first. Now that the ECLA has fallen, Love isn’t trying to disguise what has been going on all along as they pursued the ELCA like some back alley prostitute. She gives pointers on how to breach other denominations.
“Let me suggest a simple formula: praise, publicize, and participate. It is important that we actively support the ELCA leaders and the early adopters with our public affirmation and praise. Write a letter of commendation of the ELCA to the editor in your local paper and send a copy to the denominational headquarters. Carbon copy your letter to the leadership of non-affirming denominations. Financially support the organizations who “push the envelope” of denominational resistance to change. Anti-gay fundamentalists outspend pro-gays by a ratio of four to one. Participate in community-based engagement efforts. These have proven highly effective in shifting attitudes of fundamentalists towards gays.”
An effective strategy? Yes. One, the contemporary church should use in both its offense and defense of homosexual acceptance. We need to talk about it more often, praise God more often and openly for those he has brought out of homosexuality and get involved with ministries that are dealing with this crisis head on. But most won’t because today’s church values image, assets and name much more than it does its own spiritual health.
On the prospect of future gay church victories, Love exclaims, “The good news is that science is on our side.”
That’s right, she didnt say God is on our side. Neither did she say the Bible is on our side. How could she since neither is? And she knows that. Instead, she based her future expected victory on the same thing the political gay movement uses to destroy legal barriers to their “equality”. There’s little difference in the two camps except one has a facade of religion to help it get into unsuspecting churches.
The strategy of the gay christian movement has never involved love. Love is simply a convenient prop to dismantle opposition and gain access to the church. And neither is the HIV virus about love as a matter of comparison. It simply is what it is: a foreign element which will indiscriminately cripple an infected an individual’s immune system. Consequently, because of the loss of basic internal defenses, the body experiences certain death.
Please hear me. Likewise, when the church is infected with false teachings from false teachers, the fundamental truths of our faith which are meant to protect us from infection are damaged. They are damaged to such a degree that we succumb to every wind and doctrine. What’s more deadly: a disease outside of your body or one which has gotten inside your body?
Unfortunately, the church has acted like many people infected with such diseases. They denied that their bodies were in trouble.
Now, the proof is here. The church is severely infected. How long before the salt completely loses its savor?
