If you see a Methodist church get hit by lightning, this may explain why:
United Methodist Church bishop Dr. Karen Oliveto is not only a lesbian, she also believes (and publicly teaches) that Jesus was a bigot filled with prejudices. She does say that Jesus grew and changed, and thats her point. Bishop Oliveto admonishes, If Jesus can change, if he can give up his bigotries and prejudices, if he can realize that he had made his life too small, and if, in this realization, he grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we.
The United Methodist Church has been on the descent into apostasy for years now. While the denomination is currently in the midst of their 75 weeks of praying about accepting homosexuality, they have long allowed pastors of their churches to go against their current beliefs on the matter. In 2005, Karen Oliveto, a non-celibate lesbian, officiated several same-sex marriages that were held in the United Methodist church she pastored.
Olivetos teachings cover the range of normal progressive Christian beliefs the denial of the exclusivity of the Christian faith and the denial of the authority of the Bible, to name two. However, its her direct attack on certain Bible passages and Biblical figures that has caused some within the UMC to be concerned.
Any remaining Christians in the Methodist community must be starting to realize that they are the victims of a bait and switch.
If Jesus was imperfect, if he was bigoted and unloving, there is very little reason to listen to what he had to say or to look to him for salvation. Frankly, thats probably exactly what Oliveto is moving toward a complete discarding of Jesus and the Bible altogether.
You can only worship one god at a time. If the people in control of the United Methodist Church did not worship moonbattery, they would not allow blasphemous degenerates like Karen Oliveto to become bishops. The objective is to hollow out Christianity, leaving only the outer shell but replacing the insides with leftist ideology.
this chick has stones, flipping the bird at God (so to speak)
feel sorry for anybody near this woman, likely be a lightning storm of biblical proportions real soon.
At least I hope there is.
She is poison to people she is near that is for sure.
She is not a Christian by any measure whatsoever.
A follower of Gramsci (among other less reputable sorts).
This should go over well with the laity.
Quite agree and leading souls to hell in what was a denomination that preached about the love of Jesus.
Good Grief what happened to the Methodists??
Arrogance and Narcissism — my father-in-law was a Methodist minister. So stingy as to give Scrooge a bad name and suffered both of the above afflictions and generally a thoroughly disreputable excuse for a human being.
I have a lot of problems. That said I am glad I am not her.
OMG, just go ahead and slap God’s face.
I will hide behind a rock someplace while you do it.
One doesn't have to be a genius to know Not to piss off the Almighty one.
A Methodist minister friend of f-i-l passed and at his funeral he had a jar of pennies in foyer.
At the conclusion of the service he wanted every one to take a penny and realize that it symbolized how much conservatives cared about the less fortunate.
My f-i-l told me this when he got home and I responded:
“How typical of a Democrat: Petty and Hateful even in death”.
He learned quickly not to try such childish things with me.
Good post Morgana, you are one of the better FReepers :-)
that is surely what this “bishop” has done. Glad I’m no where near her.
You mean “in a deep hole, Far away from her”
Yup, as far away as is possible!
I’m sure this woman has no interest in anything Paul says, but just for grins:
“I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearingif they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control”.—1 Timothy 2:12-15
Lending credence to the saying that the devil does his best work in church.
