Mainline churches divided about more than homosexuality
For years, debates over homosexuality have dominated headlines on divisions within mainline Protestantism.

First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Redlands began splitting apart shortly after its national denomination approved the ordination of noncelibate gay and lesbian ministers in 2009, and most of the people who left nearby Trinity Episcopal Church in 2006 opposed the Episcopal denomination's consecration of a gay bishop.

But, reflecting what religious experts say is true nationally in mainline Protestantism, current and former members of the Redlands congregations said homosexuality is only part of far broader theological differences that are the real root of the divisions.

"It's a much bigger picture than one issue," said the Rev. Greg Wallace, who left First Lutheran...... "It really comes down to a theological split between the left and right in mainline Protestantism"

The laity of the mainline churches should leave mainline churches because they don't preach about How to Have Victory Over Sin or the Five Solas, "Only Scripture," "Only Christ," "Only Grace," "Only Faith," and "To God Alone Be Glory"

It also isn't about human preachers with personality!

Acts 14
15 and saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We are also men of the same nature as you, and preach the gospel to you in order that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, WHO MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.
16 "And in the generations gone by He permitted all the nations to go their own ways;
17 and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness."---NASB
