One would think ‘at least’ being able to read the bible would be a fundamental requirement to be a Lutheran bishop.
Not so much!
Here is what happens when we allow ignorant people to lead a Christian congregation, Oh! And if that person is a homosexual it is even more bazar.
The world’s first lesbian bishop of a mainstream Christian denomination has put forth a call for one of the country’s largest churches to remove its crosses, so as to avoid offending…Satan worshipers/Muslims. In other words compromise your own fundamental beliefs and principals in order to accommodate the devil.
Bishop Eva Brunne of the Lutheran Church of Sweden has proposed to remove the Christian symbols of the Seamen’s Church in Freeport to make it more inviting for visiting sailors from other religions, according to a report by SVT.se, (It is written in Swedish, you can translate) a Stockholm-based news outlet.
Her plan calls for removing crosses and other Christian symbols while setting up a prayer room inside the church that marks the direction of Mecca. The idea is to have rooms within the church that cater to people of other religions, thereby accommodating Muslim visitors. It would also make the church less offensive to the tens of thousands of Muslims entering Sweden from the Middle East and North Africa as refugees.
“Making a room available for people of other faiths does not mean that we are not defenders of our own faith. Priests are called to proclaim Christ. We do that every day and in every meeting with people,” according to Brunne. “But that does not mean that we are stingy toward people of other faiths.”
Sweden has “surrendered without so much as firing a shot,” said Pamela Geller author of “Stop the Islamization of America.”
“Sweden has lost it,” Geller said. “It is sacrificing its own heritage to accommodate immigrants who will not be as accommodating to native non-Muslim Swedes. The bishop is paving the way for the Islamization of Sweden.”
The Church of Sweden is the largest Christian church in Sweden and the largest Lutheran denomination in the world. The primate of the Church of Sweden is Archbishop Antje Jackelén — Sweden’s first female archbishop.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Years ago I warned about the dangers of reaching out to Muslims as a church. The compromises necessary to interest Muslims in listing to a gospel other than the ideology of Islam would destroy the Church. This is not new it has already destroyed Christian Mission churches in Nigeria as well as the UK and in America as well. It is part of the Biblical prophecy of the Falling Away of the Church. “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” 2 Thessalonians 2:3
