An Appeal To Confused Proddies
Oh, these poor little Proddies…
The Methodists are now going through the same slow, grinding, extremely stupid process already seen among the Anglicans/Presbyterians.
Fags among them, even among their “ministers”, wanting to officially introduce abomination. Some who still believe (albeit in the wrong way) in Christianity. In the middle, the usual confused “nice guys” who do have an inkling about what Christianity is supposed to be, but feel uncomfortable at this not being what allows them to get along with everyone.
Half steps. Commissions who will discuss. Quarrel postponed four years; but actually not, because the quarrel is there already.
And at the end of this, a vote. Because these people seriously think they can change Christian morality by voting it away. Pray for the confused Proddies. Rebellion always ends up in ruin.
Compare all this with us. The security of the Church founded by Christ. An extremely solid, granite-hard set of rules indelibly etched in the depositum fidei. A vast reservoir of written wisdom explaining the beauty of this set of rules. The possibility to always, in any earthly situation, refer to what the Church has decreed is right or wrong, saintly or sinful, the work of God or the work of Satan.
Our own shop is based on such strong foundations, that not even fifteen Evil Clowns in a row will ever deceive those who want to be obedient. The block of granite is there, forever. You will never vote him away. Every fifteen years old with some brain can twist the Bible by selecting what is convenient to him. The depositum fidei cannot be twisted. It’s the ultimate litmus test. No other shop offers such a coherent, convenient, solid, unchangeable set of rules.
Come to us, you confused Proddies lacerated by meetings held and postponed, votes threatened and hampered, and the shifting sands of changeable morality-by-vote! God knows we have our issues, but to us the issue is never one of changing rules, merely of the attempt (mind this word: attempt) to pervert them. With us, the issue is never whether rules can be changed. The issue is merely with the bastards who want you to believe the rules cannot be changed, but we must now interpret them differently. This is a stupid game, that never fooled one sincere heart. It deceives only those bent on being deceived.
Come to us, confused Proddies tossed here and there by your confused “pastors”. Leave your sinking boat and ask permission to board the Barque, where sincere Christians willing to learn and obey – and willing to learn to obey – are always welcome. The Barque will never sink, though she will be dirty at times. The Barque will give you a security impossible to be found elsewhere, because based on two thousand years of truth, not on your long hours toiling on your Bible.
By God’s grace, you will grow in wisdom, and therefore in obedience. And one day you will proudly say, to your mocking friends, that you “believe everything the Church believes, and profess everything the Church professes”. You will say this as they smile at you mockingly, and you will know what a great grace it is to be mocked in this way. You will know you are on the side of unshakeable Truth, that no “Yearly Meeting” will ever be able to sabotage, that no “vote” will ever be able to change. What a grace, what a grace!
Ask to board the Barque, confused Proddie friend. You will find a security beyond your wildest dreams, beyond the individual conviction created by thousands of hours of bible studies; because it is not an individual, home-made conviction, but a security based on Christ Himself.
