What a reprehensible display of disrespect; “Church” asks older members to worship elsewhere. I put church in quotes on purpose. The Lord said others will know His disciples by their love for one another. Looking at the leadership of this supposed church it is clear they do not love their fellow congregants, nor do they love the Lord. The older members of this particular Methodist congregation were instructed to stay away from the new congregation that was forming at a new location. The over 60’s were told they could continue to care for the old church location, and of course are free to keep giving money to those who kicked them out!
Why are they being asked to buzz off? They aren’t wanted anymore because they are elderly, the church wants a brand new “image” and these longtime congregants don’t fit the bill! Disgusting. I would urge those congregants to find a new church, a real church where the fellowship and the servanthood of those in leadership roles are biblical.
Proverbs 16:13 A gray head is a crown of glory; It is found in the way of righteousness.
Leviticus 19:32 ‘You shall rise up before the grayheaded and honor the aged, and you shall revere your God; I am the Lord.
1 Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Take head that you don’t abide false shepherds in the flock; they don’t care for the sheep, they throw them to the wolves. For shame. Value the elderly people in the church, they are a wealth of experience and just as much brothers and sisters as younger members.
