'Monogamous' Gays Can Serve in ELCA
Leaders of the nation's biggest Lutheran denomination voted Friday to allow gays in committed relationships to serve as clergy in the church -- making it one of the largest Christian denominations in the country to significantly open the pulpit to gays.

Previously, only celibate gays were permitted to serve as clergy in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a denomination of 4.8 million members. But delegates to a church assembly voted 559-451 to allow gays in "life-long, monogamous" relationships to serve as clergy and professional lay leaders in the church.

The vote is the culmination of a years-long process in the ELCA, and was accompanied by plenty of emotion at the convention in Minneapolis. After standing in long lines to reach microphones during debates that extended all day, some delegates shook and others cried as they expressed their opposition or support of the measure. ...

The TRUE Christian Church is a Remnant and always has been. These churches like ELCA etc, prove that they are not Christ followers. Strangers in a strange world the true Christians cannot belong to these Liberal God defying satanic "churches."
The question comes down to whether you believe Holy Writ or not. Those who do are elect of God. The rest are reprobate and choose hell. To put lust and an abomination before the Law of God must be the stupidest decision that anyone can make. BUT to then pretend to be a christian is complete delusion.

2Thes 2:10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"

Just another church/denomination that has decided it doesn't believe the Bible. The fruit is proving what the root really is.

But as long as they believe in the Trinity, they're still a Christian church. Right, John?

It would seem that only homosexual 'adulterers' are excluded from leadership positions (so far).

After knowing the Word of God on this issue, to continue this intractable insinuation into the church, is very much like the child who asks for the cookie; when he is told 'no', he asks again. He then takes the ensuing silence as a 'yes'.

In an earlier message, in which ELCA and the United Methodists said they could exchange ministers, does this mean homosexuality has entered by the back door in the United Methodist Church, [URL=]]]pathophysiology of male homosexuality[/URL] (rated "M" by the way)? The UMC can get their perversions second hand, like the effects of second hand smoke, without even a vote by their convention!

I thought bishops and deacons were supposed to be the husband of one "wife"? 1st Timothy 3:2, 12.

Of course they did!!

GOD Said....
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Ro 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
