untied methodists. figures.
and the irony, this article written by a Mormon — who STILL has more clue about the bible than these estimable old, but now creaky, mainlines that chase the do-good du jour but forget their roots.
of course a better answer than “dialogue” would be for all these mainlines to become baptist... i’m not holding my breath that it will happen!
There was a survey from about 2 or 3 years ago that didn’t hold up very well when looked at here at FR, tomorrow I will try to see if it is the one they are talking about.
This feeble attempt at cleverness rather shows that the right Dr. Wright could use a close encounter with logic. The truly discouraging thing about this report is that Jewish leaders would mistake this motley assembly for Christianity.
Unless, of course you want no part of Jesus. That is easily arranged.
Onward “Christian” Soldiers, Marching with the Marxists and Islamists.
These church leaders are actually haters of God and are gleeful at the ease with which they have succeeded in turning formerly faithful worshipers into social justice would-be tyrants, their minds poisoned by bitterness and sin.
Jesus is not gentle with such as these:
"You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth..." - John 8:44
So look at actual scripture instead of off the cuff comments.
Compare Jeremiah 18, Northern Kingdom remade, to Jer. 19 esp. vs 11. Jerusalem shattered like a fired clay pot, never to be made whole again.
Compare Jer. 7:14 to Shilohs fate. Judah and Jerusalem told it would be made like Shiloh, which was completely abandoned as the place where god had set his name at first cp. 1 Sam 1:24, Ps 78:60 etc.
Read Mt 21-25
21:18-22 The fig tree (Jerusalem) cursed to NEVER produce fruit again. Mountain(Jerusalem) cast into sea(destroyed)
21:28-46 The kingdom taken from Jews given to a nation bringing forth fruits
22:1-14 Destroyed the Jew who were murderers of the prophets.
23 many woes and condemnation for the Jews.
23:36-39 Jerusalem to be left desolate
24 Jerusalem to be destroyed.
25:1-13 five foolish virgins(Jerusalem/Jews) shut out of the marriage feast
25:14-46 Wicked servant(Jews/Jerusalem) has everything taken from him and cast into outer darkness
for you to add to your lists...
**** In a recent Pew survey, white mainline Protestants knew less about Christianity and the Bible than Mormons,****
Now, THAT is hard to believe! My personal dealings with Mormons have shown them to be almost totally ignorant of Bible doctrine.
But then, this also shows how far these so-called “mainline” Protestants have degenerated. Why the MSM continues to look upon these “mainline” churches as being a reflection of true Christianity is beyond me.
