“There are many paths to God, and one of them is Christianity.” So says Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto on its list of bedrock beliefs.
When I attended MCC Toronto a quarter-century ago, it billed itself as “a Christian church with a special ministry to the lesbian and gay community.” Grossly heterodox as it then was, MCC Toronto arguably still lay within the progressive fringe of Christianity.
Over time, though, the church has burnt the rest of its theology at the altar of inclusivity. Though MCC Toronto still describes itself as Christian, its vision, mission, and core values don’t mention Jesus nor affirm his divinity. Its Trinity has departed far enough from Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that the church’s baptisms are invalid.
I am unspeakably sad for people who are starving on spiritual aspartame.
