Church will not hold weddings until same-sex union is allowed

A Texas congregation has voted that no couples can be married within its walls until the denomination permits same-sex weddings.

First United Methodist Church voted on September 24, with 93 per cent of the vote in favour of the temporary prohibition on wedding ceremonies.

The church's senior pastor, Taylor Fuerst, commented that he hopes the vote 'will have a uniting effect on the congegation', which includes a number of LGBTQ individuals. 'It communicates even more to our city that if you are in the LGBTQ community that you are not tolerated here, but you are embraced.'

The Book of Discipline, the document which governs the denomination, states that all individuals are of sacred worth but the practice of homosexuality 'is incompatible with Christian teaching.' The denomination also has a ban on same-sex unions being performed by pastors or hosted by churches. ...

Quite so both! And Sister B also.

There are plenty of churches in the UK who will not succomb to the enticing, perfumed calls of the Ecumenical Movement. Those who have joined in have either lost the gospel message or never had it in the first place. Spirit-filled believers and apostates together? Never!!

This is a real fact conveniently blocked out nowadays in average church circles, at the expense of fruitfulness, effectiveness and confusion

Conservative Methodist Churches are biblically sound if they are against abortion, homosexuality, homosexual marriage, the other perversions that go along with homosexuality and are against every other perversion under the sun.

John, if you leave the part of the pool that has been peed in and swim to a part of the pool that hasn't been peed in, you're still in the pool. Better to get completely out of the pool.

All the conservative members of that United Methodist Church in Texas should leave that liberal United Methodist Church and join a conservative United Methodist Church in the area that is against homosexuality, abortion and the other perversions.

Praise the LORD! In addition to not doing weddings they should also close up shop and lock their doors.

Dear Lady_Virtue
It seems there might be, or the beginnings of some good soul searching thought on these issues.

You and others might like this ... until a person is genuinely born-again of the Spirit of the Living God they cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God.

IMHO our failure to appreciate the Great Commission and go and make disciples is where we have been missing it for years. Imposing an Outward Form of "Christianity" on others, to compel them to behave, simply hasn't been working, especially with people who "self-identify" as Christians like Modern Day Methodists and Ecumenical Roman Catholics suppressing the reality they have a desperate need of the new birth.

Two things
1. We can give ourselves to fervent heartbroken prayer and intercession for them, for their Repentance and their acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord of every part of their lives and being
2. We must witness in the Power of the Holy Spirit and love them with the Love of Jesus Christ

&unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, &his feet are like fine brass;
I know thy works,& charity, &service, &faith, &thy patience, & thy works; &the last to be more than the first.
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach & to seduce my servants to commit fornication, & to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
&I gave her space to repent of her fornication; &she repented not.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, &them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
& I will kill her children with death; &all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins &hearts: & I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
But unto you I say, &unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, &which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
&he that overcometh, & keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations.

How can any truly born-again child of God remain in a United Methodist church? There won't be another case like there was was with Lot; God isn't going to send angels to get you out of Sodom; you have to leave on your own. And don't give me this nonsense about being a member of a "conservative" UMC church. Even if you're only a bookkeeper for the Mafia, you're still part of the family. Get out! Stop making excuses and just leave!
