Lutheran Clergy - Cultural Or Spiritual Leaders? You Decide!!!

A number or really important questions have been set before the Christian world by the Lutheran Church with respect to the primary purpose and objectives of Christian teachings.  While it is one thing to welcome Gay Pastors into the Church (see Gay Lutheran Pastors To Join Church Roster), it is quite another thing to hang out the welcome flag, while not understanding why homosexuality is condemned in the Bible in the first place?   Is an all-knowing God who can see all of Creation from the beginning to the end of time, a homophobe?   Or is it the modern Lutheran clergy who are ignorant of the cause of homosexuality?   And if these same Lutheran clergy are going to put themselves forth as representing the Gospel teachings of Jesus, while actively promoting homosexuality without understanding why it was openly condemned, then how can it be said that the Lutheran Church in any manner represents the Gospel and Bible teachings?  

Is the Lutheran Church a cultural leader?   Or a spiritual group that seekers look to for spiritual leadership?   If they are cultural leaders like MTV or some popular fad magazine or media outlet, then it is fine for the Lutheran's to promote homosexuality.   But if they are a religious group that seekers look to for spiritual leadership, then they are required to lead by first understanding, and then supporting, the biblical rejection of homosexuality.   Unless, of course, they can demonstrate why they take the position that the Bible is in error, and God changed His Mind.    If God had a reason as to why the Bible rejects homosexuality -- and that reason remains valid even today -- then as a religious-leader vs a cultural-leader, the Church would be inflicting grave harm upon those who look to them as teachers.   Thus, for this very reason it is written:  "Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we shall incur a stricter judgment" (James 3:1 NASB).   Which statement brings up the ramifications which from a Christian perspective is profound -- i.e., that if a Christian preacher, pastor, minister, teacher or Church authority teaches what is in error, that they would "...incur a stricter judgment"!!!   From this perspective it can then be said that to teach a certain doctrinal position, in defiance of the original Gospel teachings and objectives, would make both the teachings and the Church an apostate to what Jesus originally taught.  
Contrary to cultural leaders, a true religious leader would understand why the Bible condemns homosexuality. To simply dismiss this warning, without first understanding why the warning was invoked, is representative of spiritual insanity!   But then, who is the true source of their manmade dogma?   It is a fact that the Church is very much following in the legacy of its founder, Martin Luther, whose teachings not only undermined the whole of the Church, but cast have the Christian world into the abyss of spiritual ignorance.   Thus, in view of the fact that Luther rejected the Epistle of James (the Lord's Brother) as an "Epistle of Straw", it can very much be said that Luther's chickens have come home to roost, and the folly of his teachings have come back to haunt the whole of the Christian world who has embraced the apostasy of Luther's teachings.   So the question becomes, do the congregations of Christians continue to follow the legacy of Luther into a proverbial Hell, or to they return to their Gospel roots, and become true shepherds and guides in TheWay?

What is the source and foundation of Luther's thinking that was adopted by virtually the whole of the Church of the Protestant Reformation?   It must be recognized that Martin Luther was himself a priest in the Roman Catholic Church -- and that the foundation of his thinking and theology is based upon the Augustinian doctrine of Original Sin.  Which means that if the doctrine of Original Sin is flawed (see The Folly Of Original Sin), then so too is the whole of Church teachings which is based upon this doctrine -- a doctrine so adverse to the original Gospel teachings, that they would be portrayed by the Apostle Paul as heresy and apostasy (see The Legacy Of Martin Luther).    In fact, in misrepresenting one verse on works vs faith that was stated totally out of context to what Paul actually taught, the whole of the Gospel teachings has been rendered spiritually sterile and virtually worthless.   And that the Church which bears Luther's name, has perpetuated his diabolical legacy by promoting homosexuality without first understanding the cause of homosexuality, or the reason why the homosexual lifestyle is rejected in the Bible, is merely the bad fruit of the corrupted tree of Lutheran doctrinal perversion.

Gov. Bev Perdue And The Sins Of The NC Police & Their Exposure

If Gov. Bev Perdue is a religious person, she should ask why has the police of the state of North Carolina suddenly been become immersed in a culture of corruption that in her own words, has been a great embarrassment (see Perdue Anounces Steps To Change Highway Patrol).    Sadly, the answer is in the biblical reality that Their Chickens Have Come Home To Roost.   While from a cultural perspective, many individuals and groups are often above the law, this is in fact part of the illusions of this world which is necessary to maintain a learning and testing environment.   When in fact, those who promote and enforce the laws of man upon others, should themselves understand the Laws which all of mankind are subject to.   And sadly, this has not at all been the case.

Those who understand the Laws in which all of mankind is immersed, are the few who understand the wisdom in the biblical verse: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- which is the foundation of the important teaching: "Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good" (Rom 12:20-21 KJV).   And in the case of a man who has himself overcome and passed the tests of the Laws, and knows how to invoke the conditions that Paul makes reference to in the above statement of fact, then the person and/or the organization who is the aggressor, can indeed get severely burnt by the Laws which control all events of this world.   But in order for this environment of learning and testing to remain effective, it is necessary for a time-lapse of cycles to exist between an action that invokes the Laws, and the return of our actions upon us -- and in many instances this time-lapse requires cycles that consume lifetimes of struggles, learning, and additional testing (see Early Church On Predestination).

While most of the North Carolina police that I have encountered since moving to the state three years ago have been reasonably nice and cordial, I was recently given a summons by a patrolman with one of the worst attitudes that I have ever encountered.    The traffic in the right lane was totally jammed up, and I used the center lane to go around the tie-up.   My actions were in response to a non-moving lane of traffic, and it was the intelligent and reasonable thing to do.   Immediately a police officer shoots out and stops me.   But unlike the previous officers who I had encountered, for no reason whatsoever this officer was nasty, belligerent, and overtly hostile for absolutely no apparent reason.   On my motorcycle I have Vietnam Veteran license plate frames, and I have witnessed hostility by those on the left towards these plate frames.   Perhaps this officer did not like my Choose Life plate frames which were on my van.   In any event, there was absolutely no reason for his overt hostility directed towards me that literally shocked my wife who, as a passenger in my vehicle, witnessed his hostile behavior directed towards me for no reason.   To the degree that he even searched my pockets.   My thoughts at the moment was that here I was a retired senior citizen who was not only a veteran, but has served my community as a captain in the volunteer fire department, and for no reason this young kid with a badge was aggressively hostile towards me.    As someone who is extremely cognizant of the movement of the Laws in the life of mankind, I perceived his actions as what I would portray as a catalyst which invokes Higher Laws.

John 9:1 And The Cause Of Blindness

In the Nazirene Ebionite Disciple Forums we often get spiritually disenfranchised ideologues attempting to correct and teach us.   In a reply which made reference to the reality that each person's chickens in life come home to roost (see Chickens Come Home To Roost), a person named Ben quoted what I had written and wrote: "What this means is that the persons infirmity was not only caused by their own sinful past, " This is erroneous doctrine. It was exposed as erroneous doctrine by Jesus. He did this when he was asked if a certain man suffered for his own sin or his father's sin(and for those who believe in reincarnation we could even say for the sin of their past self).

To this statement of profound ignorance by one who dwells in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being, I replied:

Shalom Ben:
I don't understand how you could be a member of this forum for any length of time, and not only reject the words of Jesus, the early pre-Nicene Church, or the evidence and facts that have been set before you.   Do you live in a cocoon which you just emerged from?   
What did Jesus say was the cause of the infirmities of man -- i.e., a simple reading of the Biblical Mindset on the Christian Reincarnation page will provide you the answer you are looking for at .   Notice the statement of Jesus:  "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).    Just above this in the heading entitled Judgment Of Those Who Drink From The Cup Of The Lord Unworthily, you will find the quotation of Paul stating that for this reason, believers such as yourself  "For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep" (1 Cor 11:27-30 NKJ).     This is descriptive of you, because you dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see ).   And if you ask how I know that you dwell in the outer darkness?   It is because you are without knowledge of the past lives that your own soul has lived -- and you do not understand the meaning of the scriptures or of the cycles of life.

Glenn Beck And The Pharisaic Christian Council

In a recent Glenn Beck show on Fox News he had a group of Christian leaders who were basically reminiscing about the good old days when the Church was more influential than it is at present.   From their perspective, the solution to the dilemma of Marxist Social Justice and the immorality that has attacked our culture, was a return to the doctrine of repentance and salvation through their version of Christ.   And thus, their very suggested solution is in fact the reason for the present demise of the Church.   In their attempt to find a solution, they totally failed to perceive that they were the very reason and cause of the problem.   In many respects their spiritual complacency which has permitted and even encouraged government to exceed it's Constitutional boundaries -- permitting Marxist Secular Progressives to come to power -- is presented in the words of warning:  "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge  ...Therefore, my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge" (Hosea 4:6; Isa 5:13).   In the very dim world of Christian-Pharisees, genuine spiritual knowledge has been condemned as heresy -- because their man-made doctrines of belief does not support the original Gospel teachings.

Unlike the Jewish-Pharisees of the past, the modern Christian-Pharisees as represented in this council, lack both the vision and knowledge to perceive that it was the very Hand of God that has moved against the Church.   Thus, if this council of Christian-Pharisees had the ears to hear, they would understand the parallel words spoken to them: "why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the goad.  And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest" (Acts 26:14-15 ASV).   Unlike the Christian-Pharisee council who Glenn Beck was entertaining on his show, in the book of Acts, Paul was perceptive enough to realize that the opposition which confronted him was the Hand of God changing his direction from what he thought was the way he should be walking, to a more God-Ordained ministry that would benefit a great number of the lost prodigal sons and daughters.
