Members of the United Methodist Church are in the midst of one of the worst disintegration of a denomination in U.S. history. Progressive liberals in the denomination control much of the hierarchy and thus weld much power. These liberal bishops and district superintendents are intent on making the schism (split) as difficult as possible for traditionalists who believe in the literal word of God.
In our home base area of Currituck, NC, and specifically in the northern part of the county, one UMC seems to have its foot solidly in the progressive liberal arm of the church, and the other seems to be leaning more towards traditional teachings. This means that even if you’re a traditionalist in a progressive church, your tithes and offerings are supporting liberal ideas and policies.
