The State of the PCA

The Aquila Report has a great article up about some of the issues the PCA is facing right now. It’s worth your time.

    • Perhaps this will be taken as quibbling or splitting hairs, but it’s not the conservative Reformed that are heading towards Rome. The ones loading boats for the cross-Tiber trip are apparently conservative, but if you scratch the surface there’s a whole different beast underneath.

      Someday, I hope to write a couple of posts about the issues facing the Presbyterians in America; they’re the same issues that Presbyterians faced in 1741-1742, and then again in 1837. The history of Presbyterianism in the US is a little like the history of a man who has repeatedly divorced and remarried the wife who has tried to kill him…

      • I recognize the distinction, and my comment was admittedly somewhat trolling. 😉 Clearly the ones crossing the Tiber turned out not to have such an enduring commitment to Reformation principles; or rather their commitment to Christ was separable from and outweighed their commitment to the Reformation. If unbiblical “innovations” in practice like intinction were the only thing the emigrants were concerned about, then clearly Rome is the last place they would want to go. A rejection of sola scriptura, and a realization that such things aren’t so innovative after all, does solve that problem at least. I do think the discontent inside so many denominational bodies today is a factor in defections for many, though, in driving people to seek the unity and spiritual direction under the authority of the Spirit that Christ promised.

"I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve." (Romans 16:17-18) Please read "The Comments Policy."
