The Failure of the ELCA’s Endorsement of “Same Sex Relationships”

The Failure of the ELCA’s Endorsement of “Same Sex Relationships”

The ELCA’s ongoing endorsement of homosexual relationships has gone hand in hand with  dramatic declines in attendance, financial support, and has made the ELCA as a whole a pariah in the Lutheran Church community.

Just how bad is it? From the article:

Of these losses, over 500,000 members and 1,000 congregations have left the ELCA in just the last four years, triggered by their endorsement of homosexuality beginning in 2009.  This is actually the biggest denominational split in American church history, and is directly attributable to that decision.

    It is amazing how many so called Christian leaders fail to understand that in their zeal to conform to the world, and thus appeal to a wider audience, they in fact are doing their best to drive the faithful away and ultimately downsize their Churches. Of course, that assumes it isn’t their true purpose.

  2. ANorthernObserver says :

    Positions of power will always draw those who want it for their own purposes, and they’ll do all sorts of things in order to expand their power base and so gain man’s approval. If that approval can be bought with some “progressive” action, then so be it.

    God knows His sheep, and His sheep know him. The more that organizations conform to the world, the more true sheep they’re going to lose.
