A new Lutheran denomination is being formed for congregations opposed to the homosexual-friendly policy of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Last August, the ELCA national assembly voted to allow pastors in committed same-sex relationships. Opponents say the new policy contradicts scripture, and have announced plans to establish the North American Lutheran Church, a new denomination that will recruit dissident congregations.
Several hundred congregations are moving toward a permanent split with the ELCA, but so far that's a small portion of the 10,000-church denomination....
"Last August, the ELCA national assembly voted to allow pastors in committed same-sex relationships. Opponents say the new policy contradicts scripture"
They are a bit late in discovering that ELCA don't believe the Bible anymore! Therein lies the problem. The neo religion of "Liberalism" just does not believe Scripture where it conflicts with human culture, eg homosexual practice. Romans chapter one (v18 to 32) has the prophetic word on this state of affairs. Trouble is that this new branch of ELCA will take the seeds of destruction with them, like women in the pulpit.
