The Hymn quoted in the essay:

“Built on the Rock the Church doth Stand”
by Nicolai F.S. Grundtvig, 1783-1872
Translated by Carl Doving, 1867-1937

1. Built on the Rock the Church doth stand,
Even when steeples are falling;
Crumbled have spires in every land,
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the soul distrest,
Longing for rest everlasting.

2. Surely in temples made with hands,
God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
High above earth His temple stands,
All earthly temples excelling.
Yet He whom heavens cannot contain
Chose to abide on earth with men,
Built in our bodies His temple.

3. We are God's house of living stones,
Builded for His habitation;
He through baptismal grace us owns
Heirs of His wondrous salvation.
Were we but two His name to tell,
Yet He would deign with us to dwell,
With all His grace and His favor.

4. Now we may gather with our King
E'en in the lowliest dwelling;
Praises to Him we there may bring,
His wondrous mercy forthtelling.
Jesus His grace to us accords;
Spirit and life are all His words;
His truth doth hallow the temple.

5. Still we our earthly temples rear
That we may herald His praises;
They are the homes where He draws near
And little children embraces.
Beautiful things in them are said;
God there with us His covenant made,
Making us heirs of His kingdom.

6. Here stands the font before our eyes
Telling how God did receive us;
The altar recalls Christ's sacrifice
And what His table doth give us;
Here sounds the Word that doth proclaim
Christ yesterday, today, the same,
Yea, and for aye our Redeemer.

7. Grant then, O God, where’er men roam,
That, when the church-bells are ringing,
Many in saving faith may come
Where Christ His message is bringing:
“I know Mine own, Mine own know Me;
Ye, not the world, My face shall see.
My peace I leave with you.” Amen.

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus' name

When darkness veils His lovely face
I rest on His unchanging grace
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the WHELMING FLOOD
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay

When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh, may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand

God is God, and He will not be mocked.

True. Yet the Jaynan L. Clark who writes this and is president of the Word Alone Network--she herself is "Pastor" Jaynan L. Clark! She fails to see that the ELCA having women "pastors" is in itself a mocking of God and a rejection of his word!

Just another butt boy and lizard organization; just another part of the bigger useful idiot’s brigade!

Just in case anyone has doubts, the Bible nowhere sanctions homosexual; relations, but only condemns them wherever it explicitly deals with them.

Damn...isn’t that whole free will thing a b*tch?

Unfortunately I’ll have enough of my own transgressions with which to stand before God without telling these people what they should and should not be doing.

If they want to roll the dice and rewrite the Bible, well, better them than me. I don’t have to believe it.
