Group Life: Methodists and Biblical Authority

Mon •  Feb 10 and 24, Mar 2 and 9  •  7 pm  •  Room 211

About Our Group for Men & Women

United Methodists today are faced with the very real possibility of a denominational division over issues of ordination and marriages of “self-avowed and practicing homosexual persons.” Underlying this conflict is a deep division over the issue of biblical authority. What do our United Methodist doctrinal standards, our Articles of Religion and Confession of Faith, say about biblical authority? How can we understand the scriptures in the light of the “quadrilateral” of authorities (scripture, tradition, experience, and reason) affirmed by United Methodists since 1972? How can we understand particular biblical tests, especially those that speak directly about same-sex relationships?
