Editorial Reviews

The Institute on Religion and Democracy's Attack on the United Methodist Church Since its beginning in 1982, the Institute on Religion and Democracy has continuously undermined the United Methodist Church and other mainline Protestant denominations by attacking the character of church leaders. This organization, funded by some of the world's most powerful foundations, undermines the witness of the church by fueling controversy to its own benefit. "Renewal or Ruin? " looks into the IRD's claim that it exists to renew the spiritual life of the church. Researchers, church leaders, and others talk about their findings and experiences with this Washington, DC organization that foments dissention in the body of Christ. This 25-minute DVD is designed to be used in a Sunday School class or similar format. Included on the DVD are: -"Renewal or Ruin?", a video designed to introduce the viewer to the tactics and intent of the IRD -"An Example," a story by Bishop Kenneth Carder about his encounters with the IRD -PDFs of articles by top researchers, available for distribution to your class for deeper study

5.0 out of 5 stars just enough February 29, 2008
Verified Purchase
the video is the right length for a sunday school class. it introduces the topic effectively and convincingly. i wanted to buy a hundred copies and send them to every church i know.

the ird, using cia "destabilization" methods, seeks to create enough confusion, cynicism, and conflict that good people lose faith with their church. it is an organization that claims to be about "renewal" and projects an earnestness in its communications; but really is a sophisticated front for neo-cons and catholic radicals. so many good people have believed their lies. its time for united methodists to developed a media sophistication that recognizes these "movements" for what they are: well-funded political "think tanks" devoted to separating good people from the faith. surely hell awaits them.
