I tried years ago to go to some of the "mainstream" Protestant churchs in my community. No, not the level of politics in this letter but I was simply looking for a good homily on Jesus and the Bible. I knew that Catholic homilies were less than stellar. I discovered that the homilies in these churchs were no longer about Jesus or the Bible. In fact, I went to a Methodist service at Easter one year to be with my mother in law. Not one mention of the Resurrection or Our Lord. Wow.
Note the above "sermon" only mentions Jesus' name once and not in a religious or biblical context. Seems fixed on the world rather than the Holy Spirit.
I enjoy Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod). Try it.
"I went to a Methodist service at Easter one year to be with my mother in law. Not one mention of the Resurrection or Our Lord. Wow."
My Mother in Law was a life long Methodist. She attended church regularily until the last 3-4 years of her life,(she lived to be 89).
She basically stopped going to her local Methodist Church after a series of Lesbian and liberal so called ministers.
She requested that her funeral not be held in her church and no Methodist ministers preciding or talking at her funeral. Her wishes were honored, two years ago.
Any wonder why there are more former Methodists than current Methodists?
