The PCA is now the PC(USA): lessons from Revoice

The PCA is now the PC(USA): lessons from Revoice

There are historic moments in nations. We here in the United States are in such a moment today. The Greeks called these moments the kairos. A resident of the Island Nation, Shakespeare called them a “flood tide”:

The enemy increaseth every day.
We, at the height, are ready to decline.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves
Or lose our ventures.

Denominations have such moments. Twice now during one short lifetime, I’ve grieved as I’ve watched, first one, then another Presbyterian denomination be relegated to shallows and miseries. The flood tide a better captain would have seized was homosexualists attacking the purity and peace of the Church. Rather than putting the men to the capstan, setting the sails, and meeting the enemy with faith and courage, our captains of the church stayed in the harbor’s safety where they connived at the perverse homosexualist forces. They knew if they took the tide and sailed, they would have the wind gage, but there was no threat of their cowardice suffering any reprisal from fellow officers, so they kept to the safety of the harbor and the sailors continued holystoning the decks.

First, it was the Presbyterian Church (USA) where I was ordained and served a decade. At the time, the PC(USA) had scads of powerful Evangelical pastors ensconced in the pulpits of large, very wealthy tall steeple churches. Led by Evangelical Goliaths such as John Huffman at Newport Beach Presbyterian Church (Los Angeles) and Clayton Bell at Highland Park Presbyterian Church (Dallas, pictured to right), it was Evangelicalism’s heyday. Yet these men failed to steward their hordes of wealth and power for God’s glory and the protection of His sheep. The wealth and influence God had delegated to them was never used to protect the souls of gays and lesbians. The hostile forces arrayed against God, His Word, and His people were up in their faces throwing down the gauntlet, yet they declined to take up the arms God had entrusted to them.

Huffman and Bell’s Evangelical credentials were stellar. Other Evangelical pastors pointed to these men as their justification for staying in the denomination; and for their part, Huffman and Bell reassured fellow Evangelicals they had things under control. Sitting on the board of Christianity Today, they presided over Evangelicalism’s news source of record, easily making sure their own denominational stories ran in such a way that their increasingly restless congregations were pacified.

Outside tall steeple circles were thousands of Evangelical pastors and elders in smaller, less wealthy congregations who grew more and more concerned over the PC(USA)’s regular capitulations to the homosexualists. Yet who were they to doubt Goliaths like Huffman and Bell? Didn’t Christianity Today reinforce these Goliaths’ leadership by running news stories and opinion pieces promising renewal in their time?

Thinking they could trust Billy Graham’s friends and family, these rank and file pastors set aside their questions and fears, instead embracing and continuing to trust the rich and famous until there was nothing left of their denomination and its Westminster Confession and Larger and Shorter Catechisms. By these means, the Goliaths managed to hold onto their lucrative positions to the very end.

But now, here in 2020, everyone can see these Goliaths presided over the death of the PC(USA), leaving behind a hellhole of a denomination whose singular mark is cult prostitutes displaying their wares in the doorways of their temples.

Who were these men who betrayed God’s sheep and lambs?

Huffman was a grad of Wheaton and Princeton who, for decades, sat among Evangelicalism’s best and brightest on the boards of organizations such as Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Christianity Today Inc. There were a number of others, but Clayton Bell was the Croesus among them. Billy Graham’s brother-in-law, Bell pastored the third largest church in the PC(USA) where men such as Bill Bright’s banker, Nelson Bunker Hunt, and H. Ross Perot were parishioners. Bell’s dad was Nelson Bell (pic on right: seated, with son-in-law and daughter) who started southern Presbyterianism’s Presbyterian Journal, the predecessor to Joel Belz and Marvin Olasky’s World Magazine.

Watching the PC(USA)’s descent into the gay lifestyle, aided and abetted by these men in possession of the most stellar Evangelical credentials, led the elders of my parish to take a unanimous vote to leave the PC(USA) and enter the PCA. This decision was made at some personal cost to our congregation, but we never looked back.

With the parish votes over, the PC(USA) confiscated our church property, immediately changing the locks and stealing the parish’s banners, pulpit, pews, computer, bank accounts, and the baptismal font lovingly made by our clerk of session’s grandfather. They also evicted our family from the parish’s manse. In the months leading up to the vote, the presbytery’s greed was so garish in its display that I chose as my final sermon title, “Joyfully They Submitted to the Confiscation of Their Property,” from Hebrews 10:34.

My dear mother made the trip up to Wisconsin for this last worship service. What strength she gave all of us—but particularly me, her son. I ended that final sermon in our sanctuary:

But one thing I adjure thee, for the sake of God in heaven and all that is holy, shun the priests, shun them, those abominable men whose livelihood it is to prevent thee from so much as becoming aware of what Christianity is, and who thereby would transform thee, befuddled by galimatias and optical illusion, into what they understand by a true Christian, a paid member of the State Church, or the National Church, or whatever they prefer to call it.

Shun them. But take heed to pay them willingly and promptly what money they should have. With those whom one despises, one on no account should have money differences, lest it might perhaps be said that it was to get out of paying them one avoided them. No, pay them double, in order that thy disagreement with them may be thoroughly clear: that what concerns them does not concern thee at all, namely, money; and on the contrary, that what does not concern them concerns thee infinitely, namely, Christianity.1

Sadly, entering the PCA, it was immediately evident the PCA was as the PC(USA): the love of money was the root of Her evil. Anything posing the slightest threat to the stability and profitability of the institution was fiercely resisted.

The noteworthy thing about such Evangelicals whether in the Presbyterian Church (USA) or the PCA is their refusal to say “no” to anything or anyone for any reason. The only thing they say “no” to is reform, which they oppose with a vengeance. Their perpetual refrain is peace in my lifetime. No surprise, then, that the fruit of their ministry is doctrinal and moral decay, followed inexorably by schism.

The most telling moment for me, personally, was attending my first general assembly in the PCA and watching the denominational apparatchiks oppose the will of the assembly concerning a rebuke of their sister denomination, the Christian Reformed Church. The CRC had just approved women officers and the rank and file of commissioners to the assembly called our denominational leaders to take formal action against the CRC’s rebellion against Scripture and Scripture’s God. During the debate, the big name pastors and their cronies holding denominational offices opposed any action that would jeopardize the PCA’s fellowship with the CRC.

I was scandalized. In our congregation’s process coming into the PCA, I had been examined on the floor of our PCA presbytery, and one of the questions they’d asked me, personally, was “What is your position on women officers?”

My reply was, “I’ve done it and I repent.”

When it had come down to the final decision of which denomination to transfer into, our elders had on the table the Christian Reformed Church, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and the Presbyterian Church in America, and we had specifically chosen the PCA because of her clear opposition to women officers. But we went in with our eyes open: I remember one astute elder saying, during that discussion within the session, that choosing the PCA would give us “twenty years more” of peace than going into the CRC or the EPC.

Now, here I sat and watched as the rich pastors and their denominational leaders opposed any disciplinary action against their sister denomination’s betrayal of God’s commands concerning the authority of male church officers. Here I was, the pastor of a church who had just repented of his own and his church’s decades-long practice of women elders; all the women of our church had stopped being willing to serve as elders and supported entering a denomination where (purportedly) women would never be allowed to serve as officers; and immediately it was clear this denomination was split over the meaning and nature of sexuality, and specifically at the point of whether or not it was worth dividing with other reformed officers over the ordination of women to the eldership and pastorate.

In the end, that first year’s rank and file commissioners to the assembly prevailed by vote and the denominational leaders were assigned the duty (they’d tried their best to refuse) of going to the CRC and threatening separation from them if they didn’t repent of women’s ordination.

If my first year of general assembly bode ill for the condition of the PCA, the second year bode even worse. In their report to the assembly, the denominational apparatchiks said they had not done what we had assigned them in the matter of threatening the CRC with interdenominational discipline.

I was floored. By their rebellion against general assembly, yes. But also, that they got away with it. Their obstruction of the will of the previous assembly was reported and the present assembly did nothing about it!

That moment, it all became clear to me. Our church and I myself had found no abiding place. Whatever commitment to God’s truth and Word had been of some motivation to the PCA’s founders twenty years earlier, they had all grown fat and rich so that, now, decadence was the order of the day.

Then, for the next twenty years I watched that decadence spread as rot settled in locally and nationally. Lig Duncan made his peace with Tim Keller over women deacons, and soon Lig’s Reformed Seminary was riding Tim Keller’s coattails as together they planted a satellite campus of Reformed in New York City.

I was appointed to one of the assembly’s study committees by the assembly’s moderator and those years meeting and debating together left me appalled at the pervasiveness of rank feminism among the PCA’s best and brightest. I led a court case against Keller’s presbytery for their official endorsement of women officers. Our case against that presbytery was joined by the presbytery’s stated clerk, but all of it was for nothing as we watched the denomination’s highest court, the Standing Judicial Commission, bow to pressure from all the rich and powerful pastors who would not tolerate any discipline of Tim Keller’s Metro New York Presbytery. It was disgusting watching them. Conniving at rebellion, their legal reasoning was laughable, as a friend at a major Manhattan firm who clerked for a federal judge pointed out to me.

This list of betrayal of callings could go on and on, but what’s the use? Anyone needing more examples is likely deaf and blind by their own choice, and such men can’t be made to hear or see.

This past June (2019) at its annual meeting, the Presbyterian Church in America had her historic moment, her kairos. Revoice had presented the denomination with a good flood tide by which to launch a major battle against the enemy. It was clear to all. The time for men to stand and be counted had arrived.

Now though, it’s one year later and that tide has passed so that, for years to come, it will become increasingly obvious who took the tide at the flood and confessed their faith against the homosexualist juggernaut, and who declined to contend for the faith—to guard the good deposit.

If there was a key moment at last year’s general assembly, it was the response of several hundred pastors and elders protesting the courageous, Biblical, and gentle speech of Pastor Steven Warhurst supporting the minority report related to Revoice. (The text of his speech, along with the list of pastors and elders who signed a protest against it, are reproduced below.)

What is most significant about Pastor Warhurst’s speech is not what he said, but that 200 commissioners responded by signing a protest against his Godly witness to the assembly. The minutes of the 47th (2019) General Assembly record the names of each of these commissioners who put their names out there for all the world to see their “formal protest against perceived intemperate language in [Pastor Warhurst’s] speech given in support of the Minority Report on Overture 28.” Of the 200 commissioners signing the complaint against Pastor Warhurst, 180 of those protesting were pastors and 22 were ruling elders.

Read what Pastor Warhurst said and try to imagine what made these pastors and elders gnash their teeth and run to the front of the assembly to protest.

These hirelings’ betrayal of God, His Word, and His flock will live on for all history in the minutes of the Presbyterian Church in America.

It’s evident these men desire to posture themselves publicly as halfway between Heaven and Hell. The market segment they have carved out for their church growth plan is half-Christians who are opposed to Biblical sexuality. These hirelings are scared out of their wits at the thought of preaching God’s Law and repentance. They were trained at Covenant Theological Seminary by Bryan Chapell and his stable of geldings who themselves gave birth to Stephen Moss (pictured), Greg Johnson, and many of the other leaders of Revoice.

What should we do?

Don’t leave the PCA for some other group of men trading on the Revoice scandal to get you and your church to join their new non-profit religious association. Such men did nothing to expose and oppose Revoice. They only piggybacked on other men’s work.

Pontificators who refused to enter the fray and fight alongside those calling for discipline of the Revoicers and the Covenant Seminary profs and administrators who trained them are not trustworthy no matter how seductive you find their pontifications and how bold and courageous they sound in the privacy of their own email list and meetings. Their principle is not God and His Word and truth. Their principle is avoiding the conflict, but afterwards roaming the battlefield and picking up the droppings.

There has never been a church or presbytery in which the capital is anything other than men who are on guard and go house to house never stopping their warnings—which they give day and night, with tears. Find those men and join with them to form a new presbytery of only ten or so churches, but ten churches with elders and pastors who are bloody from (in this case) standing in the gap during the Revoice battle. Find those who exposed Covenant Seminary as the seedbed of Revoice. Find the men who called out Covenant and Revoice’s leaders publicly and join with them. In the work of the ministry, you want to fight next to bloody men.

Unless, of course, you don’t want to fight at all, but simply jump ship into a more conservatish group of men holding sinecures.

As I said at the beginning of this post, I’ve now fought two battles in two denominations, and I’m weary. Weary of my own failures in each of those battles, but more weary of the refusal of my rank and file fellow pastors to heed warnings against their rich and famous peers who put themselves forward as contenders for the faith when they are nothing of the sort. Contrary to my good friend John Frame’s little piece, what we lack in today’s reformed church are “Machen’s children.”

Sure, we have lots of pastors quarrelling amongst themselves over this and that aspect of polity and doctrine, but what each of the quarrels has in common is no possibility of any of the men saying no to anyone in their own congregation, on their own session, or present in their own presbytery meetings. All such men’s enemies are out there—never in here. They have lots to say privately, to men they trust, about the failures of their denomination while never letting out a peep against their fellow presbyters. They keep their own manger and stable scrupulously clean.

Enough with such men! Be warned against them. To be conservative and to acknowledge there are problems in the PCA is nothing special at all. Anyone with half a commitment to Biblical truth can see the problems and acknowledge them privately.

What is needed now, as it was needed forty years ago when I was ordained to the Gospel ministry, is men like Luther, Knox, Calvin, Lloyd-Jones, Machen, and the Apostle Paul who were hated for saying no, but as they were hated built works that lived on after them, and thrive to this very day.

Only the hirelings grow rich through pastoral ministry.

Only bloody men deserve your trust.

Speech of  Pastor Steven Warhurst (Westminster Presbytery)[video]

I must be really unpopular. What time is it? It’s 11:30. I go to bed at 10:00 usually. But I want to present this to you because I think it’s an excellent overture from Westminster Presbytery.

We formed a study committee to look into Revoice, did an investigation, found several errors, and wanted to correct those errors. But this overture arose out of that study, and it’s meant to help pastors, teachers, and parents by providing a Biblical means of dealing with those—whom they love, and want to help—who struggle with homosexuality.

But we wanted to provide Biblical clarity on this topic, that enabled those who love people who struggle with this sin in two ways. First, we wanted to protect them from falling into the lies and deceptions of the homosexual propaganda that inundates us every day. They love these people, they want to help them, but we don’t want them to fall into the lies that inundate our culture. Secondly, we wanted to give them Biblical guidance on how to show true love for homosexuals, instead of the pseudo-love that the world wants us to show them which is really just to affirm them in their sin. Which is not true love at all.

I just want to highlight a few instances where this overture seeks to do that.

At the Revoice conference there was an attempt to separate attraction—homosexual attraction and orientation—from the actual homosexual act. And some seemed to imply, and maybe spoke outrightly, that you could actually have the attractions and be oriented in this way and that’s not sinful. That’s OK. It’s the acts that are bad. And we are glad that they condemned the act of sodomy, but we are disturbed that they gave a bye—or treated as neutral—these attractions when Romans 1:26 and 27 says, “For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions.”

And the first example of a vile passion here in this passage is: “Even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also, men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another; men with men, committing what is shameful.” The Apostle…

TE Warhurst is interrupted by a commissioner calling out, “Point of order…”

Moderator Donahoe: “Microphone number three, point of order…”

TE David Richter: “Ah, Mr. Moderator, Southern New England Presbytery. Fathers and brothers, I know that Revoice, um, ah, issue has been one of great debate and disagreement among us. But they are not a PCA organization. And I’m not sure why we have an overture at this point, or minority report at this point, directly related to answering issues that they brought up. Now I know that’s a larger conversation, but I don’t…”

Moderator Donahoe: “Can you be, can you be far more specific…”

TE Richter: “I don’t believe this is appropriate, Mr. Moderator.”

Moderator Donahoe: “Okay.”

TE Richter: “It’s not germane.”

TE Warhurst: “Uh… I think I have 15 minutes, right, to present the minority report?”

Moderator Donahoe: “Uh, you may continue but I’ll stay at the mic. I won’t go back to my chair.”

[Something indistinguishable was said from the floor.]

TE Warhurst: “Germane to what?”

Moderator Donahoe: “I’ll rule that it …that line of argumentation is not germane …to Overture 28.”

TE Warhurst: “What was the… What was the ruling?”

Moderator Donahoe: “…that the line of argumentation is not germane to Overture 28.”

TE Warhurst: “I’m trying to commend the overture, sir.”

Moderator Donahoe: The chair has been challenged. Those in… Gentlemen. Point of order, microphone number three.

TE Ewan Kennedy: Ewan Kennedy, Metro Atlanta Presbytery. If you look at lines 12 through 14 [of] this overture specifically addressing Revoice. So it is not just the argument of the speaker but what Pastor Richter was arguing against was out of order. It’s the whole focus of this minority report is answering Revoice… And I don’t think that’s germane to the work of the assembly. Ah, especially when Missouri Presbytery has already investigated Revoice at Greg Johnson’s own request. And so we’ve had some situations before where we’ve said the wording in an overture can rule it out of order.

Moderator Donahoe: “Mr. Warhurst, you may continue. I believe we’ll get to a vote on this very quickly. Please continue, specifically on why you are substituting for the majority, for the committee.”

TE Warhurst: Thank you, sir. This again, I think, is an attempt to try to help people  pastorally care for people whom they love, who struggle with this sin. It’s not just an answer to Revoice, but it does deal with the errors of Revoice and seeks to protect people who are trying to help the people they love from the errant teachings there.

But the attraction to the opposite sex is apart from God’s Word. It is not how God ordered the world at the beginning. He gave us male and female, and we were to be fruitful and multiply together. And I want to go back to the attraction where I was interrupted. The Bible says that these are vile passions. They are against nature. And so the attraction itself is sin. And this overture points that out so that people aren’t deceived into thinking we can separate the attraction and the orientation, from the act. They’re all sin, and that’s where article 2 bears down on this…—what we believe is a—serious error: “We affirm that homosexual attraction is a vile, degrading, and dishonorable passion and those who condone homosexuality invite the further judgment of God.”

Those seem like harsh words, but if you look at the translations, if you are on page 226, those are just translations from our three major translations of [what is rendered in English] “vile passions,” “degrading passions,” “dishonorable passions.” These are three different ways of elaborating the meaning of that word. And if these things are vile, then we should not say that they are neutral or somehow not sinful.

The American Psychological Association defines sexual orientation—and this is a big part of this debate and we don’t want people to be deceived as they help those they love in thinking sexual orientation is OK: “Sexual orientation refers to an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic, and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexes.”

Or, in this case, it would be an emotional, romantic, sexual attraction to someone of the same sex. That’s how the American Pyschological Association defines it.

Well, if sexual orientation is an enduring pattern of a vile passion or a vile attraction or a sinful attraction, then both the attraction and the orientation are sinful. Both. And so, if homosexual attraction is sinful, then homosexuality—homosexual orientation, which is an “enduring pattern” of that attraction—is also sinful. And we don’t want people helping others to be deceived into separating them.

And then there’s…

I’ll just go through a few others that I think are helpful. I want you to see the helpfulness of this document and how it would help people if you gave it to someone, if a parent comes to you (and my son just said this), you can give them this document. It has affirmations and denials that make things clear for them. And it has Biblical texts—which was one of the complaints about, um, the Nashville Statement. This has Biblical texts so they can look, and look at most of the texts that deal with this issue in the Scriptures.

Article 3, “We affirm Jesus condemned both sinful sexual attractions and sinful actions.”

Again, nailing down on this issue that people are much deceived about. Jesus says, Matthew 5:27 and 28, “If you have…you have heard that it was said, you shall not commit adultery, but I say to you everyone that looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

If Jesus condemned the natural desire for a woman other than your wife, it’s a sin. It’s adultery [and] how much more would He condemn the unnatural desire for a person of the same sex.

So sexual sin is not limited to particular actions. but it begins in the attractions of the heart.

At the conference, and in many places, LGBT people are spoken of as sexual minorities. And this is, I believe, an attempt to deceive us about this issue.

Article 4: “We affirm that those with homosexual attractions and incestuous attractions and beastial attractions are sexual minorities in the church…and by that we mean they are minority in number.”

But, look at the denial after that… “We deny that there is any virtue in being identified as a sexual minority because all these dispositions are sinful.”

So also, I think, mixed up [with] this “sexual minority” is an attempt to identify the LGBT+ with racial minorities or ethnic minorities. But there is…very important differences and distinctions we need to make here. Race is immutable. Has nothing to do with unlawful attractions or desires. LGBT+ identities are mutable and center around unlawful attractions and desires.

Race is benign. Unlawful sexual attraction is sin.

These are hard words, but these are words that people need to know if they are going to help others and not be sucked into the propaganda of the homosexual movement as they love those who struggle with this sin.

Article 5 starts to deal with the attitude we should have toward those we’re trying to help. “We affirm that God, by His grace, can change unnatural sexual orientations.” It was mentioned that this is rare and wasn’t the experience of many… But we believe the Apostle Paul knew some of these people. Verse 11, 1 Corinthians 6: “Such were some of you, but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus by the Spirit of God.”

Now, to move on in the overture… Just to point out a few more things that I think would be helpful to those who are helping others with this… is to alert them to the fact that many people who do not—who have this attraction—don’t want it. They don’t want this attraction at all and they are struggling against it… And there’s much shame and trouble that comes with it. And what we are encouraged to do is to become comfortable with that sin… And I don’t think we should do that.

Article 7 says, “We affirm that Christians ought to abhor homosexual sin. Abhorrence of all sin should be cultivated. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil.” That’s what the Bible teaches. And this sin is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It’s an abomination.” And if God abhors something, we should abhor it, too. Those who love God should hate evil. And Romans 12:9 says, “Let love be without hypocrisy; abhor what is evil, cling to what is good.”

Part of the homosexual propaganda is to desensitize us to what God calls an abomination. To make us think, “It’s OK!” And this is a warning to those who help them not to fall into that. It’s not a bad thing to be repulsed by sin. If God gives you a repulsion to sin, praise Him for it. If he give[s] you… If you are repulsed by your sin, that’s a blessing. If you are ashamed of your sin, that’s grace. It’s that repulsion and that shame that should drive you to Christ, the Savior of sinners.

And if we try to take away that shame and that repulsion of it, we don’t do a service to the people. We hurt them.

If you have a person who has cancer, and they are dying of cancer and you have the cure, and you say, “You are really OK. Peace, peace.” You are not helping them. You are not loving them. You are hating them. These people are struggling with a sin that is killing them. Shame, all the struggles that they have with it, and we went to them and sa[id], “Come to Christ. He’ll save you from your sins.” And shame seems to be a big part of this, and we shouldn’t try to diminish it. We should say, “Yes, let that shame drive you to Christ, the only One who can take away the shame of sin.”

Jeremiah says—Jeremiah 6:14 and 15 speaking of these false prophets—“They have also healed the hurt of my people lightly, saying ‘Peace, peace!’ when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No. They were not at all ashamed. Nor did they know how to blush. Therefore, they shall fall.”

We do not want our homosexual friends to fall under the judgement of God. So we have to not say “peace, peace” to them, but say the shame is right, the disgrace is right. Forsake it. Turn to Christ. He is the one who delivers from shame.

And Jesus did meet with sinners. He ate with sinners, tax collectors. And He said that He did not call the healthy but He came to call the sick to repentance, sinners to repentance. So we don’t affirm the sin, we call them to repentance.

Well, it’s late. And I hope that you see some of the…um…virtues of this. And if we pass this, this will be something we can give to people who love people with homosexual sin. And take it as that. It’s not an attempt to hurt them. It’s an attempt to help them, and it is chock full of Biblical proofs as to how we can best do that. Thank you for your patience.

Here is an updated version of the above list of names, bios, and pics of those pastors and elders who signed their names in support of Revoice at the 2019 General Assembly. We’ll continue to fill out this other list as we have time.

Finally, here are links to 85 posts documenting the history and leadership of Revoice, critiques of many of Revoice Conference talks, Covenant Theological Seminary’s denial of responsibility for grads and faculty who led and participated, and Missouri Presbytery’s 150,000 words in Revoice’s defense.

These Revoice posts have had well over 100,000 views on Warhorn Media.
