ELCA and Temple of Isis Team Up

Do you hear that spinning sound? That would be Martin Luther spinning in his grave.

Ebenezer Lutheran church, also known as “herchurch” is having their 5th annual “Faith and Feminism Conference” November 11-13. Among those special guests who are scheduled to participate, is none other than Loreon Vigne. She will be conducting prayers, meditations, and songs. You know her, right? No? Well, let me refresh your memory. Actually, this might destroy your memory. She is the high priestess of Isis Oasis. Vigne founded Isis Oasis in 1978. It’s a a temple, retreat and animal sanctuary where you can get tarot and astrology readings as well as massage therapy. It’s located in Geyserville, California. And yah, it’s a temple to the Egyptian fertility goddess Isis. Vigne also plans to bring other priestesses with her. According to her, she believes in a system of 42 ideals that are like the ten commandments, only more positive. She also says there are thousands of Isis followers around the globe.

“It’s kind of like a Ten Commandments, but all done in a positive concept,” she said. “‘I shalt not kill,’ [is rendered as] ‘I honor all lives as sacred.’

In an interview with World Net Daily, Vigne said,

“I personally see Isis as Mother Nature and that she encompasses everything with her wings. She’s a winged goddess. She encompasses any other goddess from any culture.”

“Guided meditation is where the audience closes their eyes and you take them on a little journey. I’ve taken people to their past lives in Egypt, as [that culture] had all the secrets. They’re the ones that knew. Their main concept is to know thyself, know thy heart, know thy soul and know thy purpose.”
As you may have guessed, Ebenezer Lutheran is ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church America). They aren’t known for sound exegesis or solid hermeneutics. In a nut shell, they are known for being wack when it comes to the Bible. Reverend Meghan Rohrer, the first openly transgender Lutheran “pastor” (cringe) in the USA is all for Vigne coming to speak. Rohrer is one of the event organizers. She said,
“I think the world is much more interested in interfaith connection than exclusivity. It’s really not that unusual. Christianity was founded in the time of the beginnings of lots of things. Anything that’s not what anyone’s church teaches is against God’s ways. Being Christian and being feminist are not two opposite ends of the spectrum.”
Katie Kethcum, another priestess of Isis at the event will be leading people in

inclusive hymns, sacred walks, sacred drums, sacred dance and Kundalini Yoga mantras. Kundalini Yoga mantras are sounds used to “invoke the divine.” Have you ever seen crowds of people speaking in tongues, getting ‘slain in the spirit,’ laughing uncontrollably, etc… only they weren’t Pentecostals, they were Hindu? That’s what we are talking about. Not feeling the authenticity of the “sign gifts” many churches apparently display? Yah, me neither.
Do I really need to comment on this? I had a hard enough time writing as much as I already have. It really speaks for itself. Mixing with other religions is what God constantly punished the Israelites for. I’ll admit that I love learning about other religions and stuff like that, but it doesn’t mean I don’t think they are garbage. No Christian is going to join hands with this garbage. You can call yourself a Christian, just like I can call myself a tree, but it doesn’t make it so. Christ said that He was the only way to the Father [John 14:6]. Our “problem” is our wickedness. Our problem is that we are naturally hostile toward God, and we need our sin forgiven. That is done in Christ. If you don’t believe the gospel – that Christ lived a perfect life, died, was buried, and rose again three days later for sin because men like you are completely dead in sin – then you will go to hell. And the wings of Isis don’t cover the world, they will fly you to hell.
