The Daily Inter Lake Newspaper in Kalispell MT, recently published an article by David Millard Haskell titled, Liberal Churches Shedding Members and Traditions. Here is a link to the complete article.
This article reinforces the data taken directly from the United Methodist Church website; the liberal jurisdictions experience more rapid membership losses as compared to the more conservative ones.
Liberal leadership and members within the United Methodist Church continue to state, ‘orthodox biblical interpretations are driving people away from the church’. Unfortunately their position is not confirmed by the official numbers from the UMC or any other denomination that has takes a social versus biblical perspective on the Bible.
