The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Votes In Openly Gay Ministers

Apostasy has become the official policy of yet another mainline Protestant denomination. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has voted by a 55% majority to allow openly gay and lesbian ministers to serve as pastors of their churches. See the story here.

The glory has departed from many denominations here in the US. How long before so-called "Evangelical" denominations begin to follow the mainline churches? When secular morality rather than the propositional truth revealed in God's Word becomes the standard, then God's law and the Gospel fall by the wayside.
