General Assemblies

During this week and early next week, the General Assemblies of the PCA and OPC meet. I urge prayer for these men as they consider the important issues before them. Perhaps the most interesting item is the PCA’s consideration of the report on the Federal Vision and the New Perspective on Paul. Much has been written on the committee and the report by those far more interested and informed than I on both sides. Personally, I am concerned about the consequences of the report for the PCA if adopted.

The OPC’s General Assembly might conclude over a decades worth of work on the revisions to the Directory for Public Worship. Another interesting issue is the report from the committee to study the churches response to illegal immigration and church membership/discipline. I think this is a difficult, but timely issue, and pray that wisdom and moderation rule the discussion.
