United Methodist Church Embraces LGBT Ideology, Defying Biblical Teachings

In the 1800s, Dwight L. Moody, an American evangelist, said that becoming a Christian meant going against the current, or, in other words, swimming upstream. This means that being a Christian involves choosing to follow what the Bible says, even if it’s not what the rest of the world is doing. It also means being labeled as intolerant and narrow-minded for standing up for biblical truth.

Recently, the United Methodist Church (UMC) made a decision to embrace LGBT ideology, which goes against what the Bible teaches about homosexuality. The UMC had previously stated that it did not condone homosexuality and considered it incompatible with Christian teaching, but at the 2024 General Conference, they voted to change their stance.

The shift in the UMC’s position on LGBT issues has led to discussions on how the church got to this point and what the justification is for the change. Some have argued that not condoning homosexuality makes it difficult to talk about Jesus to those who are in same-sex relationships. However, others have pointed out that it’s important to present the real Jesus as revealed in the Bible, and not a modified version to make Him more likable.

Moving forward, the conversation has focused on how Christians should respond to the cultural shift towards accepting LGBT ideology. It’s been emphasized that while the culture may change, God’s truth does not change, and Christians may face opposition and conflict for standing firm in their beliefs. The message is clear: the answer is never to turn away from the truth of God, but to stand firm in it, no matter the cost or opposition.
