Love Rejoices in the Truth

"Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil." I Corinthians 13:6 When we find evil in our lives we must turn back to the Lord. We cannot accept or rejoice in evil if we want to be loving. United Methodist doctrine calls for holiness in our lives to be more like Christ. Some have ignored this on sexuality and the United Methodist Church has been slow to respond. The Orchard got tired of waiting. If we are on the same side, should we not rejoice at their growth and vitality and help them along for the good of the kingdom?

Interesting, but...

Not one word on WHY these megachurches want to leave the UMC. I understand the nuts and bolts of the proposed aimiable separation and yes, it's bad if the UMC loses in the money department.

But if as I suspect they want to lkeave because they want to run a right-wing indoctrination center like Southern Baptists do, then, it's worth it to take a loss and be rid of them.
