June 28 2017 By dvirtue Robert Benne: Defending Orthodoxy in a Polarized Society

Benne described his deep sadness as the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) began to integrate "the polarizing trends set loose in the 60's" (e.g. feminism, the LGBTQ movement, black power, anti-imperialism) into its DNA to the detriment of orthodox Church doctrine. The ELCA adopted a "widely disliked quota system" and came within three votes of banning the name of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit from the language of worship.

June 27 2017 By dvirtue UK: What miracle(s) does the Church (of England) need on sexuality?

June 25 2017 By dvirtue Bishop Bruno Caught Between a Rock and a Hard Place

June 12 2017 By dvirtue Christian violence is a figment of Welby's imagination
