Faith Lutheran does not condone homosexuality
I feel it is important to let the Detroit Lakes community know that Faith Lutheran church is not an ELCA church. We do not condone what God condemns. The Bible clearly tells us homosexualism is a sin in 1Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,... will inherit the kingdom of God."
Homosexualism is a sin that will keep someone out of the kingdom of heaven unless the person repents. Simply put, a homosexual should not be the pastor of a church anymore than a thief, drunkard or adulterer, unless they repent of their sin. My advice for our Christian friends in the ELCA is to get out of the sinking ship before you go down with it. There are Lutheran churches which remain faithful to God's Word, the ELCA is not one of them.
