Seven Observations from the Recent Gathering of Traditionally Orthodox United Methodists in Birmingham

  1. My prayer has always been that out of the ashes of the division in our church there would be genuine renewal. I have always been a traditionalist and have rejected centrist and liberal ideas and it has been a struggle. I know the future church will need the Hand of God guiding us, but it is more encouraging than ever.

  2. I was very excited to read about the WCA and ongoing commitments for an orthodox Methodist Church. However, the WCA is definitely off on the wrong foot promoting social justice, and other “Justice” movements. This is exactly why the church is in the predicament it’s in now. So called “social justice” is nothing more than Marxism speak. Two things have lead to the demise of the church over the years. One was the adoption of Marxism by a wide range of North American university professors in the social sciences and humanities. The other was the widespread adoption of feminist theory. Together, Marxism and feminism redefined North American society as a hierarchy of oppression, with white, patriarchal capitalists at the top, and poor lesbians of color at the bottom. All citizens were redefined as members of racial, economic, gender, sexual, and ethnic classes, with people of white oppressing people of color, males oppressing females, rich oppressing poor, heterosexuals oppressing LGBTQ++, Christians and Jews oppressing Muslims, and so on. This approach is called “social justice” theory.
    Following the Marxist prescription of class conflict, feminists attack males as “toxic,” and people of color and their “woke” allies attack whites as having unearned “privilege” and being oppressors. But that is only the beginning. “Social justice” theory attacks the most basic concepts of American culture and Western civilization. Congratulations, the WCA has played right in to the very concepts that are destroying us.
