Option 1

The lack of proposing option one is going to unify the conservatives like never before. Why the bishops think any conservative will accept option 2 or 3 is beyond me. They all leave us yoked to those who have an opposite theology. The idea of separate central conferences will not fly and something akin to this was rejected in 2008. The local option was about to be crushed in 2016 when the commission for a way forward was proposed to stop the move. Why anyone thinks the same delegates will not propose and pass strict accountability this time is beyond me. Instead of proposing a complete split with us tied at the World Methodist council that would have been peaceful, now there will be a war at the GC2019 and we will all come out bloodied. BAD IDEA! Somebody is going to leave the hard way as in the PCA/PCUSA split.

Notable Quotes   

    "Christ told us specifically where He would be found and where we were to worship Him as Christians until He came in glory: Christ is in the people who need our help. Christ is in hungry and thirsty people; in people without adequate clothing and shelter; in people who are strangers in a strange land and people who are imprisoned. Any so-called Christianity that ignores or, God forbid, abuses such people is pernicious heresy from the pit of hell. You spit on the Body of Christ in the Chalice when you abuse Him in the body of your neighbor."

    – Mary Pezzulo, "How to Help Imprisoned Migrants," on her blog "Steel Magnificat" on Patheos.com.
