Posted on 01/15/2010 11:45:06 AM PST by Enought
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is on the attack. And they will let nothing get in the way of their goal, a nation called Palestine, with Jerusalem as it's capital. They are shameless. The ELCA is now on the attack against Christians that care for and support Israel. Presiding ELCA bishop Mark Hanson says the support of Israel by Christians . . . is a dangerous and radical political movement. The ELCA has websites and brochures denouncing them. The ELCA gathered with other like-minded mainline denominations, not to long ago, to find ways to combat these Christians.
The ELCA's website highlights Rev. Munib Younan's, bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jerusalem, thoughts on the matter. He says, "I hereby declare that (the belief of Christians who support Israel) is not only a sick theology but it is a heresy. . ." That's not all, the Bishop goes on to say this about these Christians, ". . . they are actually anti-Semitic." This is all promoted on our ELCA's official website.
This is our church everyone!
Let's really look at this. Let's say there are two groups of people. One group 1) loves the Jewish people, 2) support the Israelis in word and deed, 3) promote good relations between the governments and people, 4) take vacations there, 5) pray for them, 6) financially supports the country and organizations with in it, 7) defends them when the vast majority of nations rain down hatred on them.
The other group 1) calls on Israel to give up it's land, 2) uses inflammatory language to support their anti-Israeli positions, 3) calls on Israel to give up half of it's capital, 4) not only give up territory but to give it to a people who violently attack them and claim Jews as there mortal enemy, 5) demands that Israel remove it's protective boarder fence, 6) who's founder has a history of anti-semitic views, 7) who heavily considered doing no financial business with Israel, 8) who continues to give little credence to the violence perpetrated against the Israelis, 8) who believe and teach that when the Bible says "Israel" and "Jerusalem" you need to replace those words to read "Christians" and "church."
Which one of these groups would you pick as anti-semitic?
People of the ELCA, is this the church you want to belong too?
The ELCA is just being silly here.
ELCA ceased to be christian with its merger, ordination of women made it more liberal, now ordination of homosexuals makes it for to the left. It is just a social group that has not for profit status. The ELCA social group in my community is headed by a woman that is not married and is nothing but a feminazi. her speeches are just fluff. after her speeches she goes to the local watering hole with her live-in partner. Michigan has no provisions for gay marriage Puck
Do these people not read their bibles?
I think it's pretty obvious they don't. But, what percentage of professing Christians do you think have actually read the Bible cover to cover? I bet it's pretty small. I lead a fairly large mens Bible study group for my church and have gotten all to agree to follow a daily "read the bible in a year" plan this year. It takes about 20 minutes a day. I will be very interested to see how many actually stick with it.
No, these liberals do not read, nor do they care for the Bible.

Well, here's what Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, thinks about you and your ideas about Israel...
think it’s pretty obvious they don’t. But, what percentage of professing Christians do you think have actually read the Bible cover to cover?
I personally have not unfortunately - pretty must all the new testament and some of the Old Testament but I do know some who have. I am a part of a woman’s bible study and our church stresses bible study.
