1 Million Methodists Leave Denomination in 1 Day

Share:

The United Methodist Church continues hemorrhaging members over their stance against biblical gender and sexuality, and those numbers just skyrocketed in recent days.

Following the UMC’s decision to remove wording in their central rulebook which said homosexuality was “incompatible with Christian teaching,” the denomination lost over 1 million members as the Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) Conference based in West Africa voted to leave the apostate church.

Within the Ivory Coast Conference Declaration statement they claim the UMC in America “is not based on any biblical and disciplinary values.”

Instead, they claim the “new” UMC “is now based on sociocultural and contextual values which have consumed its doctrinal and
disciplinary integrity.”

This is pretty spot on, but sadly the UMC is not the only denomination that has abandoned God’s Word for the ways of the world.

It is because of this distancing from the Lord and His ways, the UMC “is no longer suitable for the Annual Conference of Côte
d’Ivoire.”

As reported by The Christian Post, “Mark Tooley, president of the theologically conservative Institute on Religion and Democracy, which monitors developments within the UMC, told The Christian Post it’s ‘wonderful that Ivory Coast Methodists are prioritizing orthodoxy over ties to the USA church.’

“Most Africans cannot abide liberalized USA standards,” he adds.

So continues the long line of Methodist churches leaving the denomination that has intentionally turned away from the Word of God and His design.

But the Bible tells us these things will continue to happen into the end times.

Paul writes to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:1, warning, “Now the Spirit clearly says that in the last times some will depart from the faith and pay attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.”

The need for biblical discernment and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit has never been greater, as the days we live in are filled with deceptive teaching and practices. Take strength in knowing that these things must come to pass, and as they do, be comforted in the knowledge that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again.
