Hypocritical

It would be hypocritical to keep the biblical wording of the Discipline and turn your back on disobedience. An exit plan for dissenters is a must. The Traditional Plan is our best hope.

Korean scenario

He wants to leave our official position the way it is but let people disobey it whenever they choose. This is how we got where we are now. All he wants is a piece of paper to reassure Koreans that The UMC does not condone gay marriage. Does he think his church members are deaf dumb and blind? This is not a way forward. It is a road off a cliff.

Notable Quotes   

   The church gets so wrapped up in gatekeeping — in deciding who’s in and who’s out, and in policing one another — that we basically choke the contemplative spirit right out of our faith communities.

    No wonder young people are leaving in droves, while mindfulness is now big business.

– Carl McColman, "Gatekeeping and Contemplation: Is the Church Its Own Worst Enemy?" on Patheos.com
