How is is possible to make a booklet about the Church of Norway, without mentioning the word “Christian” or “Jesus”?
Media commenter Elin Ørjasæter is critical of a booklet made by the Lutheran state Church in Norway, that has been distributed to the public.
The aim of the booklet is to mobilize many to vote during the election of local Church councils in Norway, that will take place 12th of September.
“The booklet focuses on the Church of Norway as a conductor of ceremonies and events”, explains Elin Ørjasæter.
Jan-Fredrik Raastad is standing for election to the parish council in the village of Hemsedal.
“The chosen pictures and words do not offend anyone. I am still surprised that I could not find the word ‘Christian” not “Jesus” in the pamphlet, complain Raastad.
“How is it possible for a Christian Church to make a presentation of it self, without mentioning the Lord and the mission He has given us, to proclaim the gospel also with words?”
Elin Ørjasæter supports Raastad. She is convinced He has hit the nail on the head.
” I was surprised when i read the booklet. There is not a single line that present the gospel” , says Ørjasæter
“But, I am really not to surprised. I had almost forgotten that the Church is occupied with the life and teachings of Jesus. Because this they never express”, claims Ørjasæter.
” The state Church of Norway, as a construction, leads to the deleting of Christianity in Norway”.
A Christian lady I meet on my last visit to Norway, claimed that the state Church of Norway, has reduced it self to an Undertaker Agency.
During the memorials after the Utøya-massacre, this became too obvious. Few if anyone even took the name of Jesus on their lips.
Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
The post Christianity society in Norway has its full support in this state controlled religious movement.
