Westminster Presbytery (PCA) Report to Investigate the Teachings of the Revoice Conference

Westminster Presbytery (Presbyterian Church America) adopted its Committee Report on the Revoice Conference on March 9, 2019.

The counsel and teaching of the Revoice conference is, for the most part, in grave error and is spiritually reckless and destructive (as we have fully documented). The church must support, encourage, and empower people to repent from and put to death their LGBT identities, attractions, desires, and/or actions with the help of Christ. And... Continue Reading

A Brief Review of the Missouri Presbytery Committee Report on Revoice and “Gay Christians”

The Committee to Investigate Memorial Presbyterian Church for Hosting the Revoice 18 Conference only found errors in poor judgment; they found nothing erroneous that “strikes at the vitals of religion.”

All sins are heinous, but some sins are more heinous than others.  Homosexual desire is no less forgivable, but it is more pernicious.  If there is no resignation of ordained PCA officers who claim to be gay homosexuals who practice celibacy, then there will be no hope of peace and unity in the PCA.    ...

At a called meeting on May 18, 2019, Missouri Presbytery met to receive the report of our Ad Hoc Committee to Investigate Memorial Presbyterian Church and Revoice.

We would ask readers to take care to not represent this report as an endorsement of Revoice, because our Presbytery does not understand itself to be endorsing Revoice by the actions it took at the May 18 meeting. As we say candidly in the report, we have concerns about where Revoice is going, and even... Continue Reading

Why I Love the PCA

We have all been either baptized into or called here by conviction and courage to be part of the Presbyterian Church in America.

God has graciously blessed us with the bold evangelism of D. James Kennedy, the prophetic voice of Francis Schaeffer, the American Presbyterian historical legacies of the Cannada & Rayburn families. I am grateful for the courageous churchmanship of Jack Williamson, the journalism of Aiken Taylor, the biblical exposition of James Montgomery Boice, the careful plans... Continue Reading

Can the Presbyterian Church in America be Turned Around?

Some thoughts on the PCA and its future.

The issues we face today with Revoice, social justice, and women officers are not the real problem. The real problem is that the PCA has slept while a bureaucratic, hierarchical denominational structure was erected that has now become like the tail wagging the dog. The General Assembly is supposed to serve the church. Instead, the... Continue Reading
