Something’s Rotten In…. Sweden?

The Lutheran Church of Sweden last week joined a growing number of denominational bodies that have chosen to reject their heritage as reformation heirs and bless homosexual unions. With a margin of 70-30% in favor of the change, the church body now falls in line with its governments recent passing of a new law in May allowing homosexuals the same marriage rights as heterosexuals in spite of homosexuality being declared as sinful.

From the BBC story the Archbishop of Sweden, Anders Wejryd is reported as saying:

"For my part, the right decision was taken, but I can empathise with the many who believe this has gone too fast."

No surprise I guess that Archbishop Wejryd is following the culture as so many have done recently as opposed to remaining faithful to God’s Holy Word and calling a sin what it is; sin. Apparently the only thing Archbishop Wejryd is sorry for is the moving too quickly to reject God's Word.

It is also not surprising that the same story reports that church attendance is rather low in a church body where right and wrong or truth and falsehood are not absolute but change from culture to culture and situation to situation.

I’m starting to believe that there is something really, really wrong with the water in Sweden. Just last week I found out that Sweden was burning bunnies to warm their homes. Yep, something is very rotten in Sweden.

Um, this is unrelated, but I got your check in the mail when we got home the other day! Thanks.

Yep.

It really stinks.

I'm suprised it took them this long to throw out God's law.
