Reformation Charlotte: It should go without saying that the Evangelical Lutheran Church is neither Evangelical nor Lutheran. The fact that a pro-sexually immoral, pro-abortion, feminist can stand up wearing men’s pastoral garb while spouting out anti-Christian nonsense pretty much eliminates any actual connection to the true bride of Christ by this organization calling itself a “church.”
Nonetheless, a supposedly “Lutheran” pastrix, Dawn Hutchings of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Ontario, Canada, stands up demanding that we abandon the Great Commission because, well, it’s fake and it has nothing to do with the gospel. Instead, she’s convinced, it is the source of systemic racism.
“I deliberately did not read the Great Commission [as prescribed for this date]… I doubt I will ever again read the Great Commission and publicly claim it as the gospel.”
“The so-called ‘Great Commission’ was added to the gospel by the Christian community sometime around the year 325 to bring this gospel into line with the brand-spanking-new creed which the church had just written, which you know as the Nicene Creed.”
“It is long past time for me to listen to the cries of all those who have felt the weight of my knee of privilege pressing down upon their necks… No place is our white privilege more evident than in the church which has fostered us, nourished us, grounded and sustained us.” Read More …
Opinion: A similar reading of the Great Commission in Matthew 28-18-20 is also found in Luke 21:46-47 KJV.
“And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:  And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
The pastrix is nit-picking the Bible while neglecting Paul’s letter to Timothy about women pastors:
“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:11-12
And she is neglecting Paul’s warning of apostacy, the ‘falling away’, in the last days preceding the emergence of Antichrist:
“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 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thess. 2:3-4 KJV
Finally, Paul instructs Timothy about churches that display any form of hatred:
“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Tim. 3:5
