Response to UMC not splitting

So Jack Shitama believes "allow all marriages to be celebrated in our churches". So if a man who is married to 1 wife and wants to be marred to 3 more women then those marriages should also be celebrated? Why not Jack based on your logic? Please explain if you disagree how and why? We are warned in Col 1:8 not to be captive to hollow and deceptive philosophy based on human traditions and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ Jesus. There is no end to the compromising to come is there? What about those who are open committing adultery and do so because of the "love they have"? Come on folks, this thinking is not Biblically based. Those who have this kind of thinking should simply form their own religion because this is not Christianity. People today are so willing to compromise the truth of the Bible for current popular ideas of this world which are actually old sinful ways.

But, to claim a Wesleyan heritage

The United Methodist Church should also be concerned with the holiness of heart and life of its members on a daily basis. That is hard to do when the church has contradictory beliefs as to what defines a holy life.

Notable Quotes

   "... Every modern institution faces crises in this complex, chaotic century. What differentiates great organizations is whether and how they react, specifically their ability to galvanize a robust, united response to their challenges. Faced with urgent crises, healthy organizations rally together to save the institution they love. Unhealthy organizations play the blame game."

– Chris Lowney, writing in "Is the Catholic Church a Capsizing Ship?" for Religion News Service.
