Question: What does the United Methodist Church say or teach about the issues facing the world today, such as the environment, the economy and the like?
|Response: For more than a century, United Methodists have debated and adopted a extensive set of Social Principles which are updated every four years by the General Conference. The Social Principles, while not to be considered church law, are a prayerful and thoughtful effort on the part of the General Conference to speak to the human issues in the contemporary world from a sound biblical and theological foundation as historically demonstrated in United Methodist traditions. They are a call to faithfulness and are intended to be instructive and persuasive in the best of the prophetic spirit. The Social Principles are a call to all members of The United Methodist Church to a prayerful, studied dialogue of faith and practice. Click here to read the United Methodist Social Principles.|
