We was invites to a festival at a methodist college (uk) a few weeks ago. When we got there we could not believe how the methodist had embraced the liberal theology, they even had married women taking a seminar on how to welcome gay people into church.
The biggest shock was the overall message of ‘ALL’ they was constantly preaching that the church and Gods Kingdom is open to all – just come as you are, no mention of sin or repentance.
This may surprise people in todays culture but nowhere in the bible does it say to come as you are, the message is to believe, repent, water baptism and spirit baptism. The body of Christ should not be full of sin but people who have repented and are on the journey of salvation.
I wrote a email to the principal of the college and I’ve had no reply! My message is not ‘fire and brimstone’ but a overall picture of the God we serve, a God of righteousness!
In todays society and even church people create a god to suit their lifestyle and sin, then put that god within the Christian umbrella when infact they are heading to eternal torment because that god they serve is not the God of the bible.

Methodists and Congregationalists have been to some extend leaders in liberal theology in Europe since the early 20th century. Hence, the rapid growth of Pentecostalism in the Old Continent. But accepting this here issue is far beyond comprehension.

Well we have recently left our brethren roots church and moved to a AoG church in search of more freedom in the Holy Spirit. We have not done this flippantly but as a call of God, but we loved the services and the people, we not agree with all of the Pentecostal theology such as you have got to talk in tongues as evidence of being baptised in the Holy Spirit but the church is certainly truer to the gospel message then our previous church

Split the Methodist Church? No. The apostate who embrace same-sex “marriage” are not a “church”. They are an organization that has embraced the doctrine of demons.

John Kissinger [06/06/2015 5:41 PM]
It sure split the Anglican church, so no church is insured… http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/2015-anglican-church-communique/

Roger Wilkinson commenting under this post leaves a wonder if your transfer was due to a gay-related issue. Hope this was not the case

Timothy Nail [06/06/2015 6:05 PM]
Roger glad to found refuge in a good church. I really don’t understand why you felt the need to take a jab at our doctrine in your statement. I guess you just wanted to make sure everyone knew where you stood and now we do.

Roger Wilkinson [06/08/2015 8:01 AM]
Don’t mean to have a jab, I’m just being honest. Yesterdays service was fantastic, however at the end there was a women who was ‘holy laughing’ this I find hard to accept as being from God. What I said about talking in tongues…..I personally don’t see any scriptural evidence that you ‘have to’ talk in tongues as evidence of being baptised in the Holy Spirit

John Kissinger [06/08/2015 11:42 AM]
You saw ‘holy laughing’ on AG church? – no way!

Timothy Nail [06/09/2015 9:17 AM]
Rodger do you see the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a separate work from salvation?

Timothy Nail [06/09/2015 9:18 AM]
I should say from the initial work of salvation or there is something more another experience in God beyond being saved?

Richard Briedwell [06/09/2015 9:26 AM]
Light and darkness don’t mix

Your last question is answered in the discussion under this article: http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/the-importance-of-holiness/

Gay marriage is not a marriage with two persons but it is a marriage with two Demons . Homo Sexuality is the Eternal Shame and the Ultimate Sin.
