Methodist Church Abandons Terms ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’ in Latest Slide

Continuing down the path of apostasy, the Methodist Church in the United Kingdom has made a drastic shift away from the traditional biblical definition of marriage. The denomination has released an “Inclusive Language Guide” that encourages ministers to avoid using terms like “husband” and “wife” and instead opt for gender-neutral terms such as “partner” and “parent.” This move is a clear departure from the biblical definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

The guide, which is updated every six months, suggests that relationships come in many different forms and that using “parent,” “partner” and “child” are good ways to start a conversation. This recommendation is in stark contrast to the biblical teaching of marriage as a lifelong, monogamous relationship between a man and a woman, as laid out in Genesis 2:24: “Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will become one flesh.”

The Methodist Church’s new stance also promotes the use of chosen pronouns to honor a person’s identity, as well as encouraging the use of gender-neutral titles such as “Mx.” These changes are being made in the name of inclusivity and to avoid “demonizing” or “marginalizing” certain groups in society.

Mike Signorelli’s 2024 Prophetic Word: ‘We Are in a Birthing Season’

In a podcast with other pastoral members of his V1 Church in New York, Pastor Mike Signorelli shared what season he believes the Lord is placing many in 2024.

One of the first things Signorelli discussed in the podcast was how the previous season of 2023 was a time when false prophets could look as though they too were just as accurate as true prophets. However, in this new season, it is the prophets who are accurate and contrite before the Lord that will make the difference because we are in a season where God is about to birth new things.

“We are in a birthing season,” Signorelli says. “And when a woman is travailing and they’re getting ready to push that baby out, there is going to be tears, there’s going to be blood and there’s going to be water.”

Pastor Accused of Trying to Push McDonald’s Cook Into Deep Fryer

In a bizarre incident that has left the Christian community in High Point, North Carolina, in disbelief, a local pastor, Dwayne Wayden, allegedly attempted to push a McDonald’s cook, Theodore Garlington, into a deep fryer. The incident occurred Dec. 28, when Wayden’s wife, Latoya Gladney, a trainee manager at the fast-food restaurant, called him to complain about her employees’ behavior.

Pastor Wayden, who is affiliated with Elevated Life International Ministries and also works as a truck driver, arrived at the restaurant and reportedly began punching Garlington in the face before attempting to push his head into the hot oil. Thankfully, several employees managed to intervene and prevent further harm.

The victim suffered a large contusion on his forehead and right eye, along with scratches on his neck. An ambulance was called, but Garlington chose to have his relatives take him to the hospital.
