Let me rephrase and simplify things. This has been a hot topic, a very sensitive issue where a lot of church members will disagree. Defend, qoute and define all you want the bottomline is - can we not trigger something that would divide us as a church?
I am not going down the road where you try to question how well I understood the General Conference’s decision and what not. YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT.
What was very clear in that world meeting was we decided not to proceed with Ordaining Women as Pastors. As to whatever underlying statement and dispositions followed with that decision, what is very clear is that further disagreement on that standpoint will cause not just one or two members in the church to stand.
It will be like ripple getting bigger, simply put many will disagree. Can you guys not wait for another world meeting on this issue to be address and respect the standpoint of the majority on this topic REGARDLESS OF THE UNDERLYING DETAILS YOU WANT TO PUSH THROUGH TO SERVE YOUR AGENDA?
