Do all churches/denominations compromise?

    He is unfortunately unclear on one point. He speaks of leaving quietly, without expounding on what he considers that to be. If he means slipping out the back door an disappearing, I'd disagree. If he means an orderly, non-disruptive departure, I'd agree. One should meet with leadership, confirm that there is a strong difference, and hopefully, if there is, the leadership would be able to suggest congregations closer to one's new views. And then quietly slip out the back door.

    I would suggest a slight qualification, that to do so as far as you are able. At a past church, I had laid out to a church leader my intent to consider leaving, assuming I would receive a request to meet over coffee but instead received a "I will pray for you". Unfortunately, not all churches' leadership has the same understanding like a Presbyterian church does in regards to caring for the flock.

    You clearly discharged your responsibilities. And the church leadership clearly communicated a position.
