"On the Brink"
Important issues of
great concern facing The United Methodist Church
We want to give you an
analysis and hopefully introduce other information to you that will offer
an objective view of what is happening, what is at stake, and a solution
that might resolve this.
Mark Tooley walks the reader through how church
bureaucrats channeled missions dollars to pro-Marxist
groups, how bishops have promoted homosexuality, how the
church’s lobby office promotes radical political causes
in the nation’s capital and how some seminary professors
have denied even Christ’s full deity. Tooley’s book
gives the story behind the story.

to Tell fully illustrates and documents
significant events within the UMC. In this book we tell
what happened when the full weight and financial power
of the UMC leadership were brought to bear to destroy a
small church - St. Paul Church.

politicians are unable to tell them where

mortgaged their own souls in exchange for
the illusion of political influence.
what ever reason when the more conservative
element went underground they lost the
freedom to lead at a national level. Until the
current leadership retires, steps down, or moves
on it will be difficult to be on the same level

The People Called Methodist
am not afraid that the people called Methodists
should ever cease to exist either in Europe or
America. But I am afraid lest they should
only exist as a dead sect, having the form of
religion without the power. And this
undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold
fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline
with which they first set out." John
FROM THE KANSAS SENATE LEGISLATURE
November 30, 1998
by minister Joe Wright
Father, we come before you today to ask Your
forgiveness and to seek Your direction and
guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe on
those who call evil good," but that's
exactly what we have done. We have lost our
spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We
us, O God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless
these men and women who have been sent to direct
us to the center of Your will. I ask it in
the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus

might be no schism in the body." 1
I know God has committed to
me a dispensation of the gospel; yea, and my own
salvation depends upon preaching it: Woe is
me if I preach not the gospel. If then I
could not remain in the Church without; omitting
this, without desisting from preaching the gospel
I should be under a necessity of separating from
it, or losing my own soul. In like manner, if I
could not continue united to any smaller society,
Church, or body of Christians, without committing
sin, without lying and hypocrisy, without
preaching to others doctrines which I did not
myself believe, I should be under an absolute
necessity of separating from that society. And in
all these cases the sin of separations with all
the evils consequent upon it, would not lie upon
me, but upon those who constrained me to make
that separation, by requiring of me such terms of
communion as I could not in conscience comply
But, setting aside this
case, suppose the Church or society to which I am
now united does not require me to do anything
which the Scripture forbids, or to omit anything
which the Scripture enjoins, it is then my
indispensable duty to continue therein. And if I
separate from it without any such necessity, I am
justly chargeable (whether I foresaw them or not)
with all the evils consequent upon that
The Methodists must take heed to their
doctrine, their experience, their practice, and
If they attend to their doctrines only, they
will make the people antinomians; if to the
experimental part of religion only, they will
make them enthusiasts; if to the practical part
only, they will make them Pharisees; and if they
do not attend to their discipline, they will be
like persons who bestow much pains in cultivating
their garden, and put no fence round it, to save
it from the wild boar of the forest.
- John Wesley, 1783
