The United Methodist Church Loses 1 Million Members In A Single Day After Voting To Overwhelmingly Affirm LGBTQ Clergy And Same-Sex Marriages

The United Methodist Church (UMC) lost more than a million members in one fell swoop last week, with a large West African conference voting to leave the organization due to its acceptance of LGBTQ clergy and same-sex marriages.

The apostle Paul prophesied that there would be a ‘falling away’ in the last days, where professing Christian churches would stop preaching Bible doctrine and give themselves over to the world system. There was a day when preachers from the Methodist Church like George Whitefield preached on sin and Hell, and people got saved by the thousands. In 2024, the United Methodist Church voted last month to become LGBTQ affirming in all matters of faith and practice. And just like that, another whole major Christian denomination goes into the end times trash can.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJB)

I was talking about this type of thing with a buddy of mine a few years ago, and we came to the conclusion that, if the Lord tarries too much longer, that there will be very few left standing. Paul says also in 2 Timothy 4 that because churches will fall away from preaching Bible doctrine, that they will fall away from the truth as the Bible reveals it. The falling away is so pervasive now that preachers are trying to make you believe that the falling away doesn’t even mean what it clearly says. It does. Christian, hold on to your King James Bible and cherish it as God’s preserved word, believe what it says, and take it literally wherever it is possible to do so. It is the thing that stands between you and the falling away.

United Methodist Church Loses 1 Million Members in a Single Day over LGBTQ Affirmation Vote

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The United Methodist Church of Ivory Coast (Eglise Méthodiste Unie Côte d’Ivoire or EMUCI) renounced their UMC membership on May 28 “for reasons of conscience before God and His word,” La Croix International reported.

After holding UMC membership since 2008, EMUCI said the church “deviates from the Holy Scriptures” and prefers “to sacrifice its honor and integrity to honor the LGBTQ community.” The Ivorian conference was one of the denomination’s largest groups, and last reported more than a million members.

EMCUI’s decision comes in response to the U.S.-based UMC’s vote in May to repeal the decades-long ban on LGBT clergy and marriages, which sparked a mass exit of congregations around the world.

The UMC’s decision passed 692-51 at its general conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, NPR reported.

EMUCI’s president, Bishop Benjamin Boni, declared that UMC “now rests on socio-cultural values that have consumed its doctrinal and disciplinary integrity.” More than 4,000 congregations exited the UMC in just the first six months of 2023 over its embrace of LGBTQ+ ideology, Breitbart News reported.

As the organization continues to hemorrhage members, the Korean Methodist Church — which has about 1.5 million members — is also considering leaving, the Christian Post reported Monday.

“Homosexuality cannot be accepted until the Lord returns. This is not an emotional issue but a matter of unchangeable truth. Homosexuality is clearly a sin,” a coalition of Korean Methodists said in a statement. “This is an issue concerning the sanctity of life that the church must teach correctly, without compromise.” READ MORE
