An open letter to the archbishop

Oct 13, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Star Tribune

Having served as a Lutheran bishop in Minnesota and then as the presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America , I write as one who stands on level ground with you.

Once a liberal nut always a liberal nut. ELCA has made homosexuality the acid test of orthodoxy, as has The Episcopal Church. Others are following suit.
As usual and expected, the former ELCA "bishop" leaves God and the Bible out of the mix. His "deep sense of ministry" has seldom included those two important factors. The saying fits, "I see your lips moving, but all I hear is "Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!'"

We all need healing; you are not above that. Not being mean, just saying we all need God's help. And I've never denied that.

interesting article. we need to rethink where the "Church" is going. The culture is not the authority for the church. when we decide to teach based on political or social worldviews, popular opinion , or the rapidly changing cultural norms we are headed in the wrong direction. If we attempt to miniize the aurhority or modify Gods word we lose the essence what it means to be christian. We then become nice people doing nice things like some other community group

You're just crazy about me - can't leave me alone. Sorry the feeling is not reciprocal.

Once a nut, always a nut. Liberal theologians never repent.

Consider that God gave Man the capacity to Think, and knew that such ability would lead to differing interpretations of the same Holy Writ.

Liberal theologians need repent NOTHING. "Conservative" Catholics need to repent their interference in the workings of secular governments. There is NO Biblical basis for such interference -- show me where ANY Christian prophet OR Jesus sought to codify their canons in Secular Law.

Go ahead -- show me. I can wait.

If you got your way and prevented gay marriage, what "sin" would you pick on next?

I wonder why some people are so afraid of homosexuality - it isn't catching, you know.
