Punished?

Not punished, but helped to see the Traditional Biblical position.

This seems like the UMC ending

This feels like if we don't get out the way we flee to the WCA and if we win then the progressive, liberal, and moderate congregations can move on into smaller weaker denominations. It seems like either way the denomination is destroyed. I don't see how this article provides ANY comfort that everything won't end. I keep trying to find Christ in all of this but all I get is politics and not polity.

A reasonable request

If you want to be a United Methodist here are the parameters within which we function. If you cannot function within these parameters, then here are your options. That is exactly how John Wesley functioned when Methodism was brought into existence. Methodism is in existence because John Wesley left the Fetter Lane Society over theological differences and set up his own shop at the Foundry. Methodism was born of schism. It does a great disservice to John Wesley and what he did to try and keep the church together when there is no unifying theology.
