The Church of Sweden is an apostate Lutheran denomination that is related to the Evangelical Luthern Church in America (ELCA). Recently, St Paul’s church in Malmö placed a scene depicting homosexuals in the Garden of Eden blasphemously contradicting God’s Word and practically lifting their middle finger to His holiness and righteousness.
The blasphemous artwork is titled “Paradise” and serves as an indicator of their hatred toward truth and righteousness. In fact, I couldn’t imagine Hell being much worse than being filled with aggressive, militant homosexuals — but they embrace this as “Paradise.”
In a statement released by the church, they write,
It is with pride and joy that we receive Paradise in St. Paul’s Church. We need images that open up for greater inclusion and identification in the church.
While the Scriptures certainly teach that pride goes before destruction (Proverbs 16:18), we can say with certainty that destruction is already taking place. However, pride will likely continue until the final destruction where there will be nothing but weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The artwork was created by Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin — a gay activist — in 2012 but not published and placed in the altar at this church until yesterday.
“The blackboard ‘Paradise’ places gays in God’s creation from the beginning,” the statement continues, “Not in hell where homosexuals were previously missed in history.”
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!Isaiah 5:20
While this church blasphemes God and leads many on the broad road to destruction, let’s continue to pray that those who God has elected to Himself will hear the gospel soon, repent, and come to Christ for salvation. There is no other way.
