A Sad Day for the Body

I grew-up as an ELCA Lutheran, as did my father and my grandfather. Matter of fact, my grandfather was baptized in the same church that he has been a member of for more than eighty, yes...that's correct, more than 80 years...St. James Lutheran Church in Holland, Indiana. However, his hart is now broken, along with a mojority of those that are perishoners in the ELCA. As the clergy have cast aside the Scripture to apeise the world. And for those that would say that "Times have changed." understand, God does not. And for those that say that it was an Old Testement issue, and that the New Testement takes away the law, read Matthew 5:17-20

17"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven."

Pray for the ELCA.
