What would Dr. Hinson think?

I have to wonder what Dr. Hinson would think of your current position? Regardless, I am praying your assessment of the majority of the laity’s position on the Modified Traditional Plan is incorrect. If you are right and I am wrong and the One Church or anything goes plan prevails, then I will resign my membership as I suspect Dr. Hinson would from what I have heard and read about hm from those who knew him well. If the worst happens and nothing happens, I will resign over the criminal negligence of Church leadership for the expensive sham they will have perpetrated on the UMC laity. I can find a church which places priority on Scripture — it might even be my own UMC — but not as a member of the UMC denomination.

"When one’s power, authority, or position is derived from demarcating and defending orthodoxy, then singling out more heretics is always necessary. The status one holds depends on maintaining loyalties and passing purity tests."

– Baptist pastor Brian Kaylor, "The Tragedy of Russell Moore" in Religion & Politics.

"The choice before every theologian and church leader is clear: either the tradition of the church tells us who we are, or we read the Scriptures in light of who we understand ourselves to be."

– Robert A. Hunt, Perkins School of Theology, in a Facebook post on Catholic bishops proposing to deny communion to President Joe Biden over his support for legal abortion.
