United Methodist Church's future looks bleak with liberal wing self destruction

The Christian Post reports:

"If the reports are true, then "a tentative plan" has been put in place "to split the [Methodist] church over differences on same-sex marriage and the inclusion of gay clergy."

In 2019, "The division, which has been brewing for years, came to an impasse last May when delegates in St. Louis voted 438-384 to ban gay marriage and the inclusion of gay clergy.

"A majority of U.S.-based churches opposed the 'Traditional Plan' but were outvoted by conservatives in the U.S., Africa and the Philippines," Fox News reported.

Assuming that this split actually takes place, what will happen to these two branches, one conservative and the other liberal?

The answer is easy, based on history and common spiritual sense.

History says that the conservative branch will grow and the liberal branch will diminish."
