Joe Pritchett

This argument often gets lost in the bureaucratic structures of the church and the ugly infighting that takes place when we get issue focused. I am glad you point it out. The scriptural admonition to remove an offending part of our body (if your eye causes you to sin...) might be applied here. Not that we necessarily "cut out" those who we deem wrong on issues, but that Christ-followers consider others above themselves and put aside some of the less essential issues when they come together. I'm not Methodist, but I'm not sure the problems you describe are unique to Methodism.
