Bioethical research: In 2004 the ELCA Northeastern Iowa Synod Assembly asked the 2005 Churchwide Assembly to authorize development of a social statement that addresses "the theological, ethical, public and pastoral issues surrounding genetic research and therapy."

The committee recommended that the memorial be referred to the ELCA Office of the Secretary, which, in consultation with various churchwide leaders, is to develop a report and possible recommendations to be considered by the April 2006 meeting of the ELCA Church Council.

 ELCA Communion - WELS.net
The ELCA formed a relationship with the reformed churches despite their DIFFERENCES in opinion, therefore you cannot say that the relationship is evidence of the ELCA changing their beliefs.
The real doctrinal position of the ELCA has been exposed by three ecumenical agreements: the agreement to joint communion with Reformed churches, the agreement on justification with Rome, and the acceptance of the historic episcopate with the Episcopalians.
If you mean to say that the ELCA is not deceptive since they are very open about their acceptance of mixing different doctrinal views together, we agree with you.

 The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod - ELCA
The ELCA avoids making such statements, holding that Scripture is not necessarily always accurate on such matters as history and science.
The ELCA, while affirming its commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as witnessed to in the Lutheran confessional writings, also tends to emphasize the historical character of these writings and to maintain the possibility of dissent to confessional positions that do not deal directly with the Gospel itself understood in a narrow sense.
While the LCMS believes that the Bible requires agreement in all that the Bible teaches, the ELCA holds that disagreement in some matters of doctrine, such as the mode of Christ's presence in Holy Communion, do not prohibit church fellowship.

 News from Agape Press
The ELCA currently has a ban on non-celibate homosexual pastors, but its Church Council recently voted that exceptions to the policy be made to permit the ordination of active homosexuals.
Harrisville says this means that "such things will be granted on an unlimited basis, I expect." And that lack of defined limitations, he argues, sets up a double standard, since the Church Council failed to consider whether the exceptions would also be extended to heterosexuals in common law marriages.
He contends that the denominational leaders have demonstrated they are out of touch with the people in the pews by taking their minority view and elevating it to the status of policy.
