Transgender Latina makes history as Evangelical Lutheran pastor
Before coming out as transgender, Nicole Garcia prayed daily that God would â€śfixâ€ť her. When her prayers werenâ€™t answered and the feeling in her gut didnâ€™t go away, she gave up on religion.
Now, nearly four decades later, Garcia stands behind the pulpit at Westview Lutheran Church in Boulder, Colorado, and delivers weekly sermons to a congregation of more than 100 faithful as their ordained pastor.
â€śNobody can question my faith, my devotion to Christ, my devotion to the church. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m the pastor here,â€ť Garcia,who turned 60 Thursday, told NBC News. â€śBeing trans is secondary.â€ť...
This man trying to be a woman is not evangelical, except in his own mind, he is not Lutheran, because the famous German Protestant Reformer Martin Luther would denounce this so called â€śEvangelical Lutheran Churchâ€ť, as apostate, in no uncertain language, and this person is definitely not a pastor except in his own imagination, because he is a rebel against God and how He made him, and even in his â€śalter personaâ€ť as a â€śwomanâ€ť, he would be barred from the pulpit and pastorate anyway, as this is an office closed to women, whether real or pretend women!!!
Abomination. What kind of God do these kind of people THINK they are "serving?" I have never read, or heard of the kinds of abominations as I now hear almost ALL day long, every time I read something on my frequently visited websites? Madness, disobedience, sins that were once considered far too abominable to speak of, but being hidden in "closets" because of the nastiness of it, and ESPECIALLY the sins of sodomy and other similar kinds of shameful acts. I never thought I'd live to see the day when instead of shame, I'm now witnessing the pride of people who're involved in them. Never thought there would be such acceptance of the former "closet-type" sins. Unbelievable!
""Nobody can question my faith, my devotion to Christ, my devotion to the church. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m the pastor here,â€ť"
Thats about what the Pope, Archbishop of Canterbury, Mormons and JW's and "gay christians" will say too. They are not Christian either.
Satan and sin have immense power over human beings and they cannot perceive it.
Convincing a reprobate of, "being in the wrong body" or that the sinner is a Christian is easy for sin to do.
2Cor 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate."
What this person is saying is that the below scripture only applies in some circumstances, but not theirs. Why would anyone ask the Lord for something that He has already said no to? What would â€śtheyâ€ť say if someone claims they asked the Lord to remove their pedophilia, or their greed, or their desire to murder and because they still had those urges, that meant the Lord said okay?
Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
