The ELCA Defends Heretical Conference
A number of months ago, Exposing the ELCA told you about the anti-Christian happenings and speakers at an ELCA church’s Faith and Feminism Conference. (see here) We even told you about the director from the ELCA’s Office of the Presiding Bishop showing images of Jesus as a female at the conference. (see here)
When we told you about the conference speakers, we were not yet aware of another of the conference speakers, Dr. D'vorah J. Grenn, Ph.D. Here is what Exposing the ELCA found out about Dr. Grenn. “She is co-director and executive core faculty in the Women's Spirituality MA Program and was founding kohenet/priestess of Mishkan Shekhinah (2007), a movable sanctuary honoring the Sacred Feminine in all spiritual traditions.“ Some of her “writings include Lilith's Fire: Examining Original Sources of Power, Re-Defining Sacred Texts as Transformative Theological Practice (Feminist Theology Journal, 2007). . .”
Dr. Grenn’s "‘Protective Magic’ -- on amulets and incantations - will be taught in Spring 2012 at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP) in Palo Alto.” (see here)
Dr. Grenn “is founder and director of The Lilith Institute (1997) . . .” When we looked over this institute’s website we found many disturbing things including this “Liturgy for Lilith.” Here is some of their liturgy:
“I am Lilith, Grandmother of Mary Magdalene
I am Lilith, whose sexual fire was too hot for God.
I am Lilith, the First Woman, who chose the rage of exile over the cancer
I am Lilith, Mother to the Mother-less.
I am Lilith, whose blood covers the moon.
I am Lilith, standing on owl’s claws at a woman’s crossroads.
I am Lilith, the Whore in the gateway of the Temple.
I am Lilith, whose serpentine tongue caused Eve to laugh, and pick the apple! . .
I am Lilith, free-moving in the Wilderness.
I am Lilith, spirit of night and air.
I am Lilith, in whose dark caves transgressors find sanctuary. . .
I am Lilith, living in the Shadow.
Waiting. For you.”
The ELCA actually defends the happenings of this conference on this website. (see here)
Unbelievably, or perhaps more and more believably, many ELCA synods link to the website defending these actions.
If you read the ELCA’s defense of this conference you should know that the people who worship other gods were not conference attendees, they were the teachers and speakers. And the person showing pictures of a female Jesus comes directly from the ELCA’s main offices in Chicago, Illinois, in the office of the ELCA’s presiding bishop.
The ELCA will answer to Christ for this apostasy.
