It isn't IRD that is holding the UMC hostage. The Love Prevails group won't admit it's them.

We live in a broken world

God created the earth and everything in it and it was all good until Eve ate that apple and handed it to Adam and humanity has been inherently broken ever since. Nobody has "evolved". We are all as broken as the day God arrived on earth in the form of Jesus Christ to set everything right again. Life gets a lot simpler once you understand that.

The destruction brought by God is proof that they were responsible for their actions. But God is willing that all who are still breathing turn back to Him.
