The nation's largest Lutheran denomination (the ELCA) said Friday that gay and lesbian clergy who are in monogamous, committed relationships can be called to serve as pastors and church leaders in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Make no mistake about it, the ELCA's vote to lift the ban on homosexual clergy is nothing less than outright rebellion against God and His word.
Yet God's word could not be clearer.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
Pray that God would grant the ELCA repentance for their rebellion. Even now, God is offering His forgiveness for this egregious collective sin.
