ELCA RIC ceremony at 2016 CWA


With very mixed feelings, I post this:

Pity the ELCA, which thinks it’s breaking new religious ground with its ever-expanding list of “progressive Christian” practices.

The ELCAnites, spiritual descendants of the Canaanites, are simply reintroducing Baal worship, cloaked in contemporary liberal parlance.

Matt Barber offers a comparison of the Canaanite past with the “progressive” present:

"Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of 'mother earth.’ ”

"Modern liberalism deviates little from its ancient predecessor. While its macabre rituals have been sanitized with flowery and euphemistic terms of art, its core tenets and practices remain eerily similar. The worship of ‘fertility' has been replaced with worship of 'reproductive freedom' or ‘choice.' Child sacrifice via burnt offering has been updated, ever so slightly, to become child sacrifice by way of abortion. The ritualistic promotion, practice and celebration of both heterosexual and homosexual immorality and promiscuity have been carefully whitewashed – yet wholeheartedly embraced – by the cults of radical feminism, militant 'gay rights' and 'comprehensive sex education.' And, the pantheistic worship of 'mother earth' has been substituted – in name only – for radical environmentalism."

The Baalite/ELCAnite checklist:

1. Child sacrifice. Check. The ELCA funds preborn child sacrifice for any reason up to 20 weeks in its self-funded health plan. Lura Groen should be careful about what she prays for. If the God of the Bible decided to mete out retribution and "dance on the walls of injustice" and "keep all *His* babies safe," the abortion-funding ELCA could well disappear in a puff of brimstone.

2. Sexual immorality. Check. Reconciling Works and countless ELCA pastors, bishops, and professors are hard at work weaving Biblically proscribed sexual immorality into the warp and woof of the ELCA.

3. Mother Earth worship. Check. ELCA churches and conferences are rapturously enamored of goddess worship and every trendy Earth-worshiping environmental cause.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. In the shabbily derivative ELCA, the more “progressive" things change, the more they stay the pagan same.

  1. The ELCA is creating a new god in their own image, one more to their liking than the One that pesky carpenter from Nazareth kept yammering about. It is not surprising that the ELCA's new god is cruel and unjust since it is the product of the evil in their hearts.
