The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is flirting with homosexuality in dangerous ways. Over the summer, the ELCA voted to adopt a statement on human sexuality that fully embraces homosexuality within the church. While acknowledging that individual Christians could come to different opinions on these issues, the statement included a “Bound Conscience” principle, calling Christians to simply stand by and ignore their theological convictions that differ from their neighbor’s. On today’s program, Dr. Mohler talks with Lutheran theologian Dr. Robert Benne about the dangerous doors opened by “Bound Conscience” principle, and the pitfalls of heresy that can easily follow.

These “Ten Words” tell us who God is and what His people should look like.
