Why is this hard to understand?

Why is the traditional position so hard to understand. Passage of the One Church Plan means that the denomination endorses sin in our eyes. To us the UMC would be apostate. No year of prayer, no call for unity, no clever preaching by the Bishops will change that position. If the OCP passes we will leave, in mass and individually. The UMC will hemorrhage massive numbers of members and churches. Most of the large evangelical churches will leave, even if they have to abandon their property. The WCA is not the iceburg, it is just the tip. Not solving this problem will have the same effect. We are all worn out by the constant arguing, and it is preventing ministry. The choice is either one rapidly declining denomination with the OCP or two that are free to set their own course and grow. The Bishops can moan all they want about unity but it is too late. They are the ones who allowed violations of the BOD and scripture to occur, and now it is time to suffer the consequences. No disrespect to Bishop Harvey but it is impossible for two sides that consider the other side sinners to remain united. Nothing short of Jesus appearing in person at the GC and telling us what to do would bring unity.

Notable Quotes   


     Bishop Robert T. Hoshibata preaches on the healing power of love at the April 26 evening service at the 2012 General Conference."To be God’s people is to be reminded that God is the Creator of each of us. We are all part of the human family. And in our human relationships we come face-to-face with a wide and wonderfully diverse family of individuals each unique but each beloved by God. Although we do not always agree, I believe it is important for us to know that we hold more in common with one another than any differences that keep us from caring for one another."

– Bishop Bob Hoshibata, God’s People Journeying Together, Desert Southwest Annual Conference website.
