UMC Bishop Defends Plan to Soften Church’s Views on Homosexuality

September 15, 2018   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags:

A United Methodist Church bishop has defended a plan to remove the denomination’s official stance against homosexual acts, claiming that while “not perfect” it welcomes both liberals and conservatives.

Next year, the UMC will hold a special General Conference to determine whether to retain its official opposition to homosexuality and gay marriage.

One proposal, known as the “One Church Plan,” seeks to allow individual congregations and some regional bodies to determine their position on sexual ethics.

Louisiana Area Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey, president-designate of the UMC Council of Bishops, released a video on Wednesday, explaining her support for the “One Church Plan.”

Bishop Harvey stated that of the possible plans, the One Church Plan is “the one that’s most faithful to my consecration as a bishop, to guard the faith and the unity of the church. Not the uniformity of the church, but the unity of the church.”

    We are all sinners from birth. This I do agree to. In so much as I am a sinner, I went for years worried about some of the really bad sins I have on my record.
    I have many and varied sins, so far I have not committed murder.
    I am reminded of John 3:16 KJV ” that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
    Ilieve that Jesus did on the cross for my sin. Past, present ,and future. All I have to do is believe in Jesus Christ, and all my sins are washed away in his blood.
    Homosexuality is a sin, but I have not read any where that it is not forgivable.
    Jesus forgave our sins all of them and everyone who has professed him as their Lord and Savior, has had their sins forgiven.
    If there is an unforgivable sin, and I believe there is:it would be not accepting Christ as your savior. I do not endorse homosexuality, not murder nor any of the sins mentioned in the bible, but I am a sinner, as are you. I have been forgiven of my sin!

  2. They are taking liberties that they have no right to. They are ignoring what G-d has said and making decisions contrary to the word and will of G-d. “One Church”? Could this be the beginning of a world wide universal church that will help usher in the anti-Christ?
