You can leave me out of “Us”.

Remember the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel?  Well they are changing their name to reflect their current apostasy to just United Society or “Us”.  None of that must old “propagation of the Gospel” here!

‘No doubt this name worked well in its day, but words like “propagation” are simply out-dated in the twenty-first century. So it was time for a change.

‘Our new name, Us, is directly derived from USPG, so it speaks to our heritage, but it also speaks about inclusivity. There is no “them”; we are all “us”. Our work – in partnership with the churches of the Anglican Communion – is for the benefit of the whole community, regardless of ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, age or faith. No-one is excluded.’

Ah, yes.  The true modern Gospel is inclusion.  Tell you what – someone is excluded from that.  Me.  For I exclude myself from such apostate tripe.

Historically, SPG was (You got that past tense right! – Ed.) a traditional missionary-sending agency. John Wesley was one of many hundreds of missionaries sent around the world by SPG.  (Leave his name out of this!  He would be ashamed of you!)

However, over the decades, this view of mission has shifted, and the focus today is on inspiring local communities to unlock their potential so they can overcome whatever barriers they face, whether economic, political or spiritual.

Because the modern Gospel is all about unlocking human potential and inclusion and . . . and “Us”!

Yeah, well count me out of “Us” then.  You “propagate” another gospel now.
