Eritrea, Africa arrested two elderly pastors

Church in Chains reports that two Eritrean pastors were arrested and taken to an undisclosed location in late July. Pray for pastors Girmay Araya, age 75, and Samuel Okbamichael, age 74.

Evangelical Lutherans selects male bishop pretending to be female

A man, who is attempting to present himself as a woman, a certain Mr. Rohrer, was appointed to the high position of bishop in the Evangelical Lutheran Church on September 11th, reports NBC News.

The so-called “transgendered” man, who changed his first name to “Megan” and who uses the gender-neutral singular “they” pronoun, is assigned to oversee 200 congregations in California and Nevada.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States with about 3.3 million members.

The Lord refers to the promotion of sexual immorality at the church in Thyatira, in Revelation 2:20-22. “I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.  And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.  Indeed, I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.”
