Brother Mark shared this video of Pastor Greg Lock3 on his Facebook page, and it needs to be shared here too. Those of us willing to preach the word of God are in small numbers. When we left the United Methodist Church in 2019 and founded MCF, we left behind a denomination divided into factions battling each other over scripture and homosexuality. Progressives in the UMC were calling Traditionalists every name in the book including racists, misogynists, haters of mankind, and unwelcoming of gays. None of that was true, but it was the liberal narrative Progressives adopted in hopes of winning the support of less than 4.5% of the population. Brother Mark just finished a series on “human sexuality,” last month with only one negative comment. I have a thought for Pastors in the United States, “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Speak God’s word, not the words that will fill your pews.
- Traditionalist – Believe the entire Bible is the divine Word of God, including Leviticus 18:22
- Progressives – Support ordination of gay clergy and same sex marriage in the church. They believe parts of the Bible and in some cases entire books should be set aside as irrelevant in today’s society.
- Human Sexuality – Progressive code word for the LGBTQIA+ community.
