Tom Brock on Is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America a Christian Denomination or a Mouthpiece for Liberal Politics?

The Christian Church is to be about saving souls and bringing the Gospel of Christ to all nations (Matthew 28:19). But Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America told a Chicago newspaper that she believes Hell, if it exists, is empty. So if everyone is going to heaven and the Church doesn’t need to save souls, what will the ELCA do with its time and money? Sadly, from a look at ELCA press releases, the answer is: preach liberal politics. In the past, ELCA headlines have mentioned the ELCA’s support for transgender rights and abortion rights. Here are the recent news releases from the ELCA:

  • ELCA Church Council approves sanctuary church guidelines
  • A pastoral word on the verdict of George Floyd’s murder trial
  • A statement from Bishop Eaton in addressing racial justice
  • Earth Day statement from Bishop Eaton
  • Bishop Eaton issues statement on gun violence
  • Bishop Eaton issues statement addressing anti-Asian racism
  • Statement for the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
  • Lutherans participate in UN Commission on the Status of Women
  • ELCA leaders call on Congress to pass US Citizenship Act
  • Indigenous Peoples Month events
