    Overture to OPC Presbytery Concerning Republication Thesis

    This ought to be interesting to watch if this gets to the OPC GA. Since this has been a hotly debated topic on the PB and all over the interwebs and print journals and books it would be a good thing, in my opinion, for a study committee to take a look.


    Overture Proposed to OPC Presbytery seeks Study on

    ‎‎""The Christian religion is the religion of sinners, of such as have sinned, and in whom sin in some measure still dwells. The Christian life is a life of continued repentance, humiliation for and mortification of sin, of continual faith in, thankfulness for, and love to the Redeemer, and hopeful joyful expectation of a day of glorious redemption, in which the believer shall be fully and finally acquitted, and sin abolished for ever."
    -- Matthew Henry on 1 John 1:9

    I am quite interested in this story. How long do these generally take?

    Without knowing anything about how the OPC operates these things my guess would be voted at Presbytery in the Spring, then to GA, then to a study committee, then couple of years down the road we would hear something.

    So 2014?

    Do you have a sense that people are trying to affirm this position, or are they trying to get a clear ruling to settle the issue once and for all?

    Eric, the OPC can seem to move glacially slow sometimes, but it is done to ensure any issues are carefully considered. Speed may clear the air faster, but could leave threads hanging to be pulled out again. (Ew, mixed metaphor.)

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
