Missouri Synod blasts ELCA over Gay Stance
On the final day of its 2007 Churchwide Assembly in Chicago (Saturday, August 11), the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) adopted a resolution which "prays, urges, and encourages [ELCA geographical] synods, synodical bishops, and the presiding bishop to refrain from or demonstrate restraint in disciplining those rostered leaders in a mutual, chaste, and faithful committed same-gender relationship who have been called and rostered in this church."

News of this action troubles me greatly and is causing serious concern and consternation among the members and leaders of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). We in the LCMS hold firmly to the conviction that, according to the Holy Bible, homosexual behavior is "intrinsically sinful." We are deeply disappointed that the ELCA, by its decision, has failed to act in keeping with the historic and universal understanding of the Christian church ...

Sue, there can be no denying that the PCUSA is a liberal group. Of course one has to worry about the Missouri Synod Lutherans as well accepting the Roman Catholic Church's "heterodoxy"

I think that the ELCA is also member of the the LWF?

"The Significance of the Lutheran World Federation's Treason in its wider Historical Context "

The Missouri Synod Lutherans rejected the above action,

"Triumph for Romanism, Tragedy for the Reformation"

I say Hooray for the Missouri Synod for taking a stand for the Holy Scripture.

But what do you mean about the PCA? I belong to the PCA and they take a stand againt homosexuality.

The Missouri Synod better be careful. Already they have slipped down the slope of allowing ecumenical joint services, and although they don't ordain women, they do allow women to teach and exercise other authority over men. These may seem slight variations from decades past, but that's how the ELCA started. Liberalism in church always uses the modus operandi of two steps forward and one step back. Soon the synod will have more in common with the ELCA than not. Ditto the PCA and the PCUSA, ie: divorced & remarried elders, deacons & ministers, & the leadership rather than hospitality function of "deaconesses".
