Headline: A good man suggests rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

Poor Rev. Maxie. He is a good man trying to find the key to change the path of a hurricane. It is not the fault of our church so much as it is the reality of this increasingly immoral world. "Political Correctness" demands that we of old morals and values turn our backs on our own values and submit to the Sodom and Gomorrah vision for the new UMC. Sorry, Maxie, you cannot win. There comes a time that we must take our ball and go home, leaving a very bad game to those who write new rules. With good leaders like you, we can offer support and hope to traditional Methodists, and sweet refuge to obedient believers. We mere humble pewsters are counting on you!

The Bible takes sides.

The Methodist Church split once before over slavery and we all know whose side scriptures were on in that debate. Perhaps it is time to admit that society has moved beyond biblical morality to a better one.

Society is doomed

Once society moves beyond Biblical morality, David, society is doomed. Without Christ and Biblical morality, we devolve either into a dog eat dog world, scurrying like rats on a sinking ship, or into a statist society with no liberty or freedom to think for ourselves. That is not a better society.

The Heart of the matter

David's comment brings us to the heart of the matter. Progressives believe that a society whose morality is designed by humans is superior to a morality designed by God. What more needs to be said!

Notable Quotes   


   "My wish is that, one day, formal education will pay attention to the education of the heart, teaching love, compassion, justice, forgiveness, mindfulness, tolerance and peace. This education is necessary, from kindergarten to secondary schools and universities. I mean social, emotional and ethical learning. We need a worldwide initiative for educating heart and mind in this modern age."

 – HH The Dalai Lama, interviewed in the Los Angeles Times


    "[Author Vincent Strudwick] reimagines church as catalyst, transfiguring an egoistic society back to an altruistic one, celebrating a God who is as weak as water, but as irresistible as a river. Decisions should be taken at the lowest possible grass-roots level, dialogue superseding proclamation, and embodiment replacing autocracy.

– The Rt. Rev. David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff in the Church of England, reviewing Strudwick's book: "The Naked God: Wrestling for a Grace-ful Humanity" in Church Times.
