Here’s part of the statement:
“As delegates to the 2020 General Conference Session in Indianapolis, Indiana, we express our conviction that the Bible is the inspired and revealed Word of God. Through the Holy Scriptures, God has revealed Himself and His will to humanity. The whole Bible is inspired and must be understood as a whole in order to arrive at correct conclusions as to the truth on any revealed topic. The Bible is reliable in what it affirms. Its record of creation in six literal days, the fall of human beings, a global flood to destroy wickedness and preserve a remnant, as well as God’s numerous interventions in history for the salvation of human beings are trustworthy reports of God’s acts in history.”
Ted & team are doing everything they can to drag the church into the past and to alienate every thinking person, especially the young and the educated.
To put it nicely, their approach to the bible is sophomoric at best.
