Major Denomination Deals Themself Death Blow

In the past few years, the United Methodist Church has become infected with confusion and rebellion concerning homosexuality. A couple months ago, one pastor defied the denomination's doctrine on homosexuality and married a gay couple in her church. Another pastor came out as a lesbian at the start of this year and is encouraging the denomination to embrace homosexuality, reports The Blaze.

But instead of correcting the issue, disciplining the pastors, and clarifying to the congregation about the Bible's clear teaching on sexuality, the United Methodist Church is calling for a reevaluation of their stance on homosexuality. The review period will take two years, thus postponing any discipline on the offending pastors. The Bible is very clear that those who practice homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God. So reevaluating their stance is basically saying: Which parts of the Bible do we want to keep?

The New York Times reports the decision made the LGBT community very happy. "It was celebrated by L.G.B.T. Methodists and their supporters as a way to buy time and avoid church discipline against more than 100 clergy and clergy candidates who came out as gay in advance of the conference."

Now, the term "death blow" is a bit harsh, but so are these words from Jesus: "So I will spit you out of my mouth, because you are only warm and not hot or cold" (Revelation 3:16). In the course of two years, a disease can spread throughout the entire body. This is the kind of thing that could have been dealt with in a healthy and strong way to preserve the health of the United Methodist Church's members.  But now, as one member said, it threatens to "break" the church in half.

What do you think of the denomination's decision to reevaluate their stance on homosexuality?  Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you so much! We need to pray for them!
