The ELCA’s Ecumenical Decisions

At its Churchwide Assembly this week, the ELCA approved full communion with the United Methodist Church. It already has such agreements with the Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Church USA, the Reformed Church in America, and the United Church of Christ, and the Moravian Church.

What unites all of these denominations, of course, is their liberalism. “Birds of a feather flock together.” They are united in their rejection of Biblical truth, divided from other denominations in their own tradition, but united to one another.

Paul McCain comments that this was “the worst decision the ELCA made.” “This is even more symptomatic of a theological system that is sick unto death.” And he wonders why so many ELCA pastors and lay members who were upset about the decisions regarding homosexuality had nothing to say about this.
