Transgender N.J. pastor to celebrate
with historic renaming ceremony

Jersey Journal [Jersey City, NJ], by Rev. Alexander Santora

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/8/2018 11:03:11 AM

When Jesus called Simon to be his first apostle, he changed his name to Peter. On Sunday, Lutheran Bishop Tracie Bartholomew will call Pastor Rose Beeson "Peter" for the first time in what will be a historic "renaming ceremony" at St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church in Hoboken. Since last summer, Beeson has been transitioning from woman to man and has shared this process with a supportive parish community. "This a wonderful day in the life of this radically inclusive community," said Mark Singleton, a 21-year member of the church who was on the committee to call Beeson to pastor St. Matthew Trinity

Comments:
Are there enough worshippers of mental illness to keep the pews filled? A "For Sale" sign in the future will tell the tale; maybe a new radically inclusive mosque will take its place.

This is why I left the Lutheran church. They mock God on so many levels.

Yes,#1. This is indeed a mockery of God. But God will not be mocked by this false pastor and his supporters.

Apparently, the Lutherans (ELCA we presume) are in a headlong race for worst apostasy and heresy with the United Methodists, Disciples of Christ, and American Baptists. Not a race you should want to win.
Somehow, I doubt that Luther would be pleased.
And pleasing the Lord seems to be the least of their concerns. "Depart from Me, I never knew you" is in their future.

At least they did not do a renaming of St Matthew and a celebration of "her" change of gender identity.

#1,#2,#6,#9- With all due respect, such a blanket statement about the Lutheran Church is most unfortunate and inaccurate. Indeed, the ELCA has gone off the rails as evidenced by the formation of a new synod, the NALC (North American Lutheran Church) constituted on August 27, 2010 due to the ELCA’s “shift in policy toward homosexual members and clergy. The NALC regarded the shift as being unbiblical and symptomatic of growing liberalism of ELCA.”

I wish this woman nothing but the best.\

When a person has inward coherence, her body and mind operate harmoniously. If that harmony is absent and her body is healthy, it´s her mind that´s unhealthy.

Ethically, you assist the mind to match the healthy body, not sabotage the normal, healthy body to match a confused mind.

The doctors who do this are unethical: they are not treating underlying causes, and not aiming for real wellness.

The poor women. I hope she keeps her "girl parts," so that when she realizes that fake maleness isn´t working, she can "transition back" without extra ripping and stitching.

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) accept and preach Scripture-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation: “Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.”
Scripture is very clear about “false teachers” – “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.” (James 3:1)

He can have all the mutilating surgery that he wants.

He can take dangerous amounts of steroids and hormones EVERY day for the rest of his life so that his body will mimic a woman´s body.

But he can NOT change his DNA!!!! His DNA will always say that he is a MAN!!!!!!

The national churches of the main Protestant lines have been thoroughly and completely infiltrated by anti-religious zealots and extremist leftists for quite some time.

Not a penny to support these national church groups, they really do NOT represent the religions that they have hijacked.

And look at the Pope, certainly not much of a Catholic.

This is how the left is working to destroy Christianity. Infiltrate the ranks with zealots and try to dismantle it from within.

The Bible still remains.

If I were a Bible-believing Lutheran, I would get out of any of its denominational churches until they changed their name and became distinct. Hard to figure out who´s who when they all call themselves Lutheran. Agreed, this is a perversion and will catch up with this woman/man/whatever. "Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and do not touch what is unclean and I will welcome you" (2 Cor. 6:17)
It always baffles me why people who don´t believe what the Scripture teaches insist on playing church and pretending. It´s a schizo way to live. Then again, there´s a lot of money in those places.

#11/13 – Thank you for the explanation of the various synods under the Lutheran label. I understand your pain with brethren who are unable to accept basic truths and choose instead to break away and reform.

Respectfully, I do have a question about Lutheran doctrine. I’m a bit confused by your quote, “Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.” You listed three things that are “alone”. How can all three be “alone”?

#23- With all due respect, abandoning Lutheranism is not an option for believers of Scripture-based teaching. Much like President Trump is doing to right the wrongs of left-wing decadent governance, believing Lutherans who are members of Scripture-based teaching synods need to pray for errant Lutherans and challenge false teachings within Lutheranism while providing a safe haven for Lutherans recognizing and rejecting false teachings. Catholics would not abandon their “denomination” to become separate and distinct. Ultimately, true believers constitute the Church on earth. Our Lord assures believers that “…the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Church).”(Matthew16:18)

#24: "alone" has a specific meaning.
Faith alone means faith not dependent on or supplemental to good works. See Romans 3 for a description of what faith means. "Abraham believed G-d, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness."
Scripture alone means not dependent on any writings other than the ones in Scripture. In other words, what the Pope says has no bearing.
Grace alone means we can do nothing to deserve salvation. Salvation is utterly dependent on the work of G-d. It cannot be earned or bought.
"alone" means not mixed with any other operative force.
See the Formula of Concord for details.
These three pillars were insisted on by Luther.
And they were based on years of reverent study of Scripture.

I´m glad to get some clarity on which Synod allowed this to happen. I was raised in the Missouri Synod (Parochial school for 8 grades) and I have always known them to be the strictest of the Synods. I don´t think Lutherans should jump ship just because of this one Rogue church and Minister. Catholics have held firm while their Pastors molested little boys. They also have become more and more lenient on Gay Marriage. I think we all need to just hold firm in our beliefs and let the chips fall where they may. We can choose which Church to attend, so we do not have to support this Pastor who is giving all Lutherans a bad name! God will decide who is right!

I am LC Missouri Synod and joined because this type of hipster nonsense drove me from the Episcopal Church. There is no reason that a person at odds with reality cannot join a church, including a congregation that wishes to be taken seriously. There is, however, an obvious imperative that such a person not act as a leader of that church. Inclusiveness doesn’t mean collective mental illness. This leads to things like the New Hope Methodist Church becoming Marsha Brown’s Creole Restaurant complete with ironic stained glass windows of biblical stories next door to the Wiccan shop and the tattoo parlor.

#32- Excellent post, sincerely appreciated.

#24- #32 is correct. St. Paul makes it easy to understand “Sola gratia,Sola fide,Sola scriptura” in the words of Ephesians2:8-9 – “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” God’s mercy is generous toward the undeserving.(Romans5:12-21) Grace “is like the benefit of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross, which is not a work, but a treasure included in the Word. It is offered to us and received by faith.”

Through faith, God’s gift, is the opposite of works and sight; a trust in God’s gifts, now and to come. (Luke 7:50, Romans 1:17, Galatians 2:16).

Salvation is not the result of works: “Neither Jews who obey the Torah, nor Gentiles who heed their conscience, may claim a reward from God (Romans 3:19-31). Ultimately, “Christ’s merit is obtained not by our works or pennies, but from grace through faith, without money and merit.”

This is disrespectful to the One who created the two sexes.
The hubris of one who would claim that God made a mistake that needs corrected by His creation is blasphemy of the highest order.
She obviously sees herself as superior to God and on a mission to correct his failings.
Any church that embraces this is not a church of God.

#32 – Thank you for answering my question. You clarified the issue for me.

#33 – “They also have become more and more lenient on Gay Marriage.” It was unclear if you were referring the Lutherans or the Catholics. The Catholic Church has not changed its prohibition against gender-neutral “marriages”. Practicing Catholics who are homosexual or lesbian are called to chastity as are single heterosexuals. There are many special ministries available to those who live with such temptations.

#37,38,39 – Thank you, as always, for the Scripture quotes. Catholics also believe that salvation is a Grace Gift from God, totally outside any effort of ours. Although it is a common misconception Catholics do not believe that our works will save us but, just like the fig tree we will be known by our fruits. We are commanded by Christ to be His hands and feet in the world. We do believe that Scripture without Tradition to guide interpretation can lead believers into dangerous waters. Oral Tradition was the basis of Christian belief before The Bible was assembled in the 4th century. The Pope is infallible in only matters of faith and morals. The last papal bull on dogma was in 1854, when the Church formalized the teaching on the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Infallible papal declarations are very rare.

#41- As always, enlightening exchanges sincerely appreciated.

#42- “Judge, cast first stone.” When a believer falls into sin, believers are to try to encourage the sinner to examine the fault.(Matthew 18:15-20) Rather than being judgmental, the attempt is more like compassion that would impel a medical professional to care for an injured person. Jesus gave the keys of the kingdom of heaven to the Apostles (clergy) to forgive or refuse to forgive sins(Matthew 16:19). Believers need to pray for sinners who show no concern for their souls, and work to win them back so they will not be lost forever.

Gulfport, Miss. — Police say a Mississippi man has been charged with knowingly exposing others to HIV. News outlets report 29-year-old Tyrone Ross, of Gulfport, was arrested Sunday as the result of a complaint received against him at a hospital. Gulfport police Sgt. Clayton Fulks says Ross met a man while they were in jail and was intimate with him behind bars. Fulks says they continued their relationship after they were released. Police say the relationship lasted between October 2015 and May 2018. Police say Ross had previously been convicted for knowingly exposing others to HIV twice.

Junkies have been dumping some 5,000 used needles a week in parks across The Bronx — prompting desperate city officials to install dozens of syringe-disposal kiosks in hopes of cleaning up the dangerous mess. There has been a dramatic gain in the number of syringes found in parks in The Bronx in recent years because of the ongoing opioid epidemic, city Health Department officials say. The 60 kiosks, which will be locked trash boxes placed in the hardest-hit Bronx parks, are part of a $60 million HealingNYC program to combat the drug plague, announced Monday.

Hood River County Circuit Judge John Olson awarded the restitution totaling $36,618,330.24 to cover the costs of firefighting, repair and restoration, according to the Oregonian.

The restitution is solely the responsibility of the teen, and not his parents, who came from Ukraine. Judge Olson admitted it was "an extraordinary amount."

But the ´insensitive´ language offended members of the student body, prompting an immediate apology from principal Dennis Perry. ´I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,´ Perry wrote in a letter posted to Twitter on Friday. (Snip) ´I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have

There are so few German army helicopters available for the troops that pilots have been forced to train in bright yellow civilian choppers leased from the German Automobile Club. A chronic shortage of spare parts and assorted technical woes have grounded 29 of the Bundeswehr´s 130 camouflage-green helicopters. Acute shortages of parts have also left only 39 of the Luftwaffe´s 128 Eurofighter jets combat-ready — idled along with nearly half of the armed forces´ 224 Leopard tanks and five of its six submarines. No country in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance has savored the "peace dividend" as much as

A popular Spanish-language theater near Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood has been entertaining its audiences for months with a parody that would spur outrage in many other cities. One of the leading actors in the play performs in blackface. The response from most of this audience: applause and laughter. “It has been a hit and no one has complained ... on the contrary, she is one of the favorites," said Marisol Correa, who oversees the venue where the play is showing. “The character is typical of the Cuban theater, the negrito cubano, but the person is never discriminated.” (Snip) Velasco said she has

A prejudiced California pol likely flushed whatever election hopes she had down the drain after targeting a transgender person in a restaurant bathroom. Social-media users are attacking Republican ­congressional candidate Jazmina Saavedra over her videotaped harassment of a transgender woman who used a ladies’ room at a Los Angeles Denny’s last week. (Snip) Earlier in the week, Saavedra shared a Facebook video in which she yelled at the transgender woman while the victim was inside a bathroom stall. The exchange went viral Tuesday night. One Twitter user called Saavedra, a Nicaraguan immigrant and fierce supporter of President Trump, “evil” and “homophobic.”

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy. In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday that the FBI was not at any point spying on the Trump campaign. “They were not. They were spying — a term I don´t particularly like — on what the Russians were doing," Clapper said during an appearance on The View to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence.” The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?"
