Dear Lighthouse Trails:
It’s getting much more difficult to find Christian books which speak truth, about God, His Word, the church, without a New Age, spiritual formation, emerging church agenda. I quit going to United Methodist Women monthly meetings; one woman uses Jesus Calling as the devotional reading. Sunday School has become a political discussion session. Advent will be a non-Bible movie/study guide with Stations of the Cross on Good Friday. (All this in a Methodist church, led by a pastor who goes to leadership meetings held at a Benedictine monastery!
In late February, the Methodists are having a special conference, called by the bishops, to vote on LGBT issues. [LTRJ note: The United Methodists will be voting at their general conference on Feb. 23-26.] A denominational split is already being discussed. I know I will obey God and His Word. So far, I’m still a Methodist, but for how long? I pray for His wisdom and guidance. Thank you for your books, booklets, and Journal.
P.S. I no longer tithe to this church. I give elsewhere.
