When heresy and apostacy increase in a church body.

Heresy and apostacy are very much evident in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and the recent election of an openly, practicing homosexual man as a bishop in the Los Angeles area.

According to a news report:
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the country's largest Lutheran denomination, now has its first openly gay bishop from Los Angeles, Calif., who has been elected to a six-year term.

The Rev. R. Guy Erwin was elected Friday to a six-year term as bishop of the ELCA's Southwest California Synod at the church's annual assembly in Woodland Hills, Calif, the denomination said in a statement, noting that "Erwin is the ELCA's first synod bishop who is gay and in a partnered relationship."
At some point the ELCA needs to change it's name because it is no longer evangelical or Lutheran.
