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.

I've heard about Seminex but we were ALC at the time so was not even aware of it then. It sounds like those who got together to form the ELCA all deserved each other.

Good for the LCMS again.

It was strange. I grew up in a small German town with the ALC and there was a LCMS church in a neighboring town but there was always a prejudice against the LCMS. I never knew what it was but it was there. I believe it is still there and that is why those at the ELCA church will not leave and go to the neighboring LCMS.

The members of the ELCA congregation do not know the blessings that are waiting for them.

I have a current LCMS friend who can explain the whole thing and I need to sit down with her again and let her explain it to me.
