Is like talking about the ninth inning of a football game.
Here is the latest from that post-Christian branch of Protestantism known as United Methodism. One of its openly gay preachers, who also preaches under the drag queen alias of Ms. Penny Cost, has come out and denounced the Bible. Yep. It reminds me of when the Episcopal Church voted to declare the New Testament an anti-Semitic, racist propaganda rag.
I was going to write a long blabbering post about how so many liberal Protestant denominations have gotten to this point. How I could sit next to colleagues in my ministry days and hear a United Church of Christ pastor say she just can't understand the arrogance behind believing in a personal God. But why bother?
Suffice to say, when you look back at the history of these denominations and how they began to turn in the 19th and 20th centuries, it's not hard to see parallels to the Catholic Church over the last few generations. Remember, they didn't start this way. This dumpster fire result started by letting the World dictate priorities and deciding it was time to change their teachings to accommodate. Only after generations of doing that did we end up with Ms. Penny Cost. And it won't stop there. A word of warning to the Catholic Church today.
