When a Denomination Conforms with “Modern Values”

This post is largely just a reference to an article here, that I recommend you read for yourself. It’s about the “Evangelical Lutheran Church in America”, which officially endorsed homosexual “marriage” in 2011. The article states that compared to two and a half decades ago, the denomination have lost around a quarter of their membership and donations to the church in 2011 were have less than half of those in 2008.

Feedback in the original article notes that even denominations that have stayed true to Scripture have reduced membership numbers. But the decline in total membership of the ECLA is apparently particularly large.
