PCA General Assembly: Two videos tell the story
The PCA is sick and nothing other than the Spirit working through the denomination will save her. The good-ol-boys network has failed to bring reformation. Now, reliance on the Lord through prayer and the use of the actual mechanism of church discipline will need to be taken up.read more
Missouri Presbytery Revoice Report: a close reading (18); Revoice built on one big lie
It’s inconceivable to establishment men that any of their critics has serious motives. Keep in mind that these men of Missouri Presbytery are the establishment of the PCA.

Missouri Presbytery Revoice Report: a close reading (15); No, I didn’t mean you!
Revoice calls good what Scripture and our confessional Westminster Standards call evil. Revoice blesses what God curses. Revoice is intentionally promoting schism within the Church, seeking to draw out disciples from among the people of God. They are men who have arisen among us seeking sheep they may devour, and Missouri Presbytery is happy to oblige. Missouri Presbytery refuses to keep watch over these sheep, cozying up to the wolves instead.read more
