ECLA vs. LCMS

Hello, Lutherans!

Just out of curiosity: what are differences between the ECLA and the LCMS?

There are several threads on this rather contentious issue already on TCL. Use the search function to find them. Another option would be to go to the LCMS and ELCA websites and look there. It's pretty easy to find the appropriate information.

Alternatively, you could Google: "differences between LCMS and ELCA"

no need to apologize, Nemo. Tangible wasn't trying to be rude or anything. We just get this question A LOT around here!

THIS THREAD is probably one of the better ones and a bit more specific to your question, but there's lots out there that just talk about the different synods in general too.

Welcome to TLC!

Inappropriate topic since there is much contention on this subject.

There are a great number of differences between LCMS and ELCA. There's nothing inappropriate about discussing them. If people could just be adults about it there wouldn't have to be contention in the discussion.

Nemo, are you interested in visiting/joining a church of one of those Lutheran synods?

how much time have you got?

I would say the biggest are in regards to:
social/moral issues such as homosexuality most recently

communion practices (who partakes, ecumenism)

ordination (women, homosexuals)

hermeneutics

stressing individual vs. communal ethics

Interpretation of the Lutheran Confessions.

That is the reader's digest version.

Another distinction is conservative (LCMS) vs. liberal (ELCA).

Like I said a totally inappropriate subject since it will cause dissention. We're had enough confrontations on the difference between the 2 synods. Since you are a mod you will get to deal with it later.
