Lutherans Take Next Step

After leaving the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) over doctrinal differences, the newly formed North American Lutheran Church is meeting in Ohio this week to elect leadership for the new denomination.

Last year more than 250 congregations left the ECLA, the largest Lutheran denomination in the country, after they decided to ordain homosexuals to the clergy.

The North American Lutheran Church say they "embody the theological center in Lutheranism in North America" and stand "firmly within the global Lutheran mainstream."

"In keeping with the Lutheran Confessions, we believe all doctrines should and must be judged by the teaching of Scripture."

They affirm the Bible as the inspired Word of God, thus rejecting the ECLA action to ordain homosexuals.

I have linked their website. If you are Lutheran, you may want to be aware of their progress and plans.

I encourage all believers to pray that God will bless and guide them in this bold step of faith and conviction.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Active. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
