It came into being through a series of mergers. This merger swallowed up the Biblical Lutheran church into which I was born.

It got so bad that we left about 15 years ago for the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod which is very different from the ELCA

The LCMS is partly responsible for that. Are you familiar with Seminex? Basically, the MO synod purged out some liberal members in the 70s. There are a lot of hard feelings and it's difficult to get to the truth about what happened. I read a book written by one of the guys who got purged, and it made him look bad; worse than what the issues were at the time. Eventually they merged with other Lutherans forming ELCA.
