Methodist College Fires Professor For Tweet Against Homosexuality Entering The Church

Cliff College, a school overseen by The Methodist Council of the United Kingdom has sacked Dr Aaron Edwards, a professor of theology for expressing that “Homosexuality is invading the church.” The college initially suspended Edwards for his tweet in February, pending an investigation. Following the investigation, the college chose to fire Edwards for his Biblically-oriented assessment of homosexuality. The college has also threatened to report Edwards for right wing extremism to “Prevent”, a thought-police and counter terrorism branch of the UK government.

The moves by Cliff College are not surprising, considering the extreme leftist trajectory of The Methodist Church in the United Kingdom. While conservative Methodists in the United States enjoy freedom of speech to oppose sexual immorality in the church, the remaining remnant of conservatives with the UK Methodist Church have been attacked by leftists within the Methodist Council who use the hate speech laws of the UK and pro-LGBT+ cultural momentum as a club to remove dissenters like Edwards from positions of power. The Methodist Church of the United Kingdom has formulated a six-point position to “Safeguard LGBT+ lives”, effectively placing sexual deviants as the head of the church and muzzling the truth of the scripture in the church.

When a denomination begins to apologize for the prophetic voices who call its people to repentance, as The Methodist Church of the UK has done to Dr. Aaron Edwards, it is only a matter of time before they begin to call what is evil, “good”. In the case of The Methodist Church, they have already begun delighting in evil. The church has even formulated prayers in celebration of LGBT+ history month. The prayers effectively declare that sexual deviancy is part of God’s “rainbow creation of diversity.”

One of the most revealing items from the UK Methodist denomination website is a video entitled “Being Trans in the Methodist church.” The 9 minute video focuses solely upon the ideology and viewpoint of a “Jacob”, an individual who appears to be a biological woman who pretends to be a man, while also pretending to be a worship leader in the local Methodist synagogue of Satan. Apparently “Jacob’s” local church plays along with his delusion.

One can only imagine that the church hardly focuses on God, with Jacob as their worship leader. She only uses the word God 3 times in her sad little biopic. Two of those uses are to tout “God in Love Unites Us”, the LGBTQ affirming report of the UK United Methodist Church. The final use of “God” in the video is simply “God bless” at the end of the video. The entire video is pure egocentric LGBTQ propaganda. The Methodist Church UK as a denomination has given itself over to satan, in exchange for the approval of the surrounding culture. Instead of calling people to repentance, the Methodist church now prides itself in being able to participate in that which is evil. 

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

  1. These individuals have chosen worldly sin over Scripture. They aren’t blind guides, they are evil guides and worthy of shunning by every earnest Christ-follower.
