The United Methodist Church teetered on the brink of breakup Monday after more than half the delegates at an international conference voted to maintain bans on same-sex weddings and ordination of gay clergy.

Their favored plan, if formally approved, could drive supporters of LGBT inclusion to leave America's second-largest Protestant denomination.https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/united-methodist-church-edge-breakup-lgbt-stand-61386027?fbclid=IwAR0MYPt05eJu6a6vu6O0THVgfNGSmoVGHb3APy9qHSgKnrXsvEZ1vLNsqVs

The Church has to be consistent in maintaining bans on same sex marriage since half of their delegates voted for it.

Did these people read the Bible? The Bible clearly says homosexuality is a grave sin.

Keep reading and then focus on what all YOU are doing that is sin. Trust me there is plenty you're guilty of. Try starting in Leviticus.

So why are you to only believe the new and not the old. Because the old has some not so good things to say about those with disabilities.

Read Matthew 19:4-6 ... Christ not only verified the creation story, He also verified the sacrament of marriage and it's only between a man and a woman. Christ said:"And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he [God the Father] which made them at the beginning made them male and female,5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." Man and woman become 1 flesh.

Sadly, no matter what you say, people want to be rude, make excuses and try and pick an argument.

Jesus Christ is my savior not my religion. We are all born sinners and no matter how hard we try we will always sin. That's why Christ died on the cross. God revealed himself through Christ. I don't know of any other God that's done that. I don't live in fear at all because I know I'm covered by the blood of Jesus.
