Thoughts from a orthodox Christian...

And true orthodox Christianity has very little in common with modern fundamentalism. I read this article last night and have let it rumble around in the back of my mind since. It is a well known fact that within the UMC, areas strong in progressive theology are those that are shrinking the fastest. I initially thought it was because of what you believe. I now understand that it is because you do not believe anything in particular, which, by the way, John Wesley would call the "spawn of the devil"--his words, not mine, from the second half of his sermon on Catholic Spirit. You make me grateful that my faith is rooted in 2000 years of creeds and hymns and not something that was just invented.
