UMC False Teachers Follow Lead of Apostate Bishop Sprague in Northern Illinois Conference
Editor's note: Folks in the Southeast Jurisdiction must be vigilant to halt the spread of this cancerous heresy that undermines Scriptural authority in your churches, which is a natural effect of the connectional system. Of course, the most effective way to stop the growth is to completely remove the cancerous tumor!
Dr. Ted Campbell, president of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (G-ETS), and the Rev. Bruce Robbins, general secretary of the United Methodist General Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns (GCCUIC), will be featured presenters at a forum, "Sacred Scripture: How Firm a Foundation?"
