I read this and I get a sense of deja vu. The same thing has happened and is happening in the Anglican Communion: Faithful Africans fed up with revisionist Westerners. American Methodists would do well to listen to their African brothers, or they can look at TEC and see what lies in their future.
I agree with both of you. We must listen to these African brothers an their critique of Euro-Westerners.
I long for the Christian Unity that this preacher references for us, so that all children of Almighty God and joint heirs in Christ — Anglican, Orthodox, Protestant, Catholic, Methodist, and Free — that all will prioritize a true unity of true Christians.
