Special Committee re Former Moderators

The Special Committee re Former Moderators has worked long and hard to present the PCC with a course forward on the issue of human sexuality. This is an extraordinarily difficult task, and we are grateful to them for taking it on. The report of the Special Committee will be available on the PCC website on ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #7

We are involved in spiritual warfare. If so, then what does praying for "unity" in the PCC mean? Our brothers and sisters are not the enemy. We must first pray against all the deceptions of the Evil One. A small but enticing recruitment ad for MI6 once appeared on a back page of the staid ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #6

Observation: The biblical truth that there is new life (now) for all who are in Christ is not only not getting out, but is, in fact, also being stifled by those who do not want this biblical truth and reality proclaimed. Scripture and personal experience are clear: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is ... Read more

The Moderator’s CBC Interview

As we approach the 2019 General Assembly, Canadian Presbyterians are facing changes and challenges. We are also facing historic, watershed decisions. The Moderator-Elect for the 2019 General Assembly, Rev. Amanda Currie, faces a deeply anxious, deeply divided denomination. An interview (both online and on radio) by CBC was recently released, and had some subsequent corrections, ... Read more

Making space for God, not each other

One of the risks that we take in talking publicly is that we have absolutely no control over what’s printed or broadcast. Comments can be taken out of context or be quoted inaccurately. Headlines attempt to draw the reader’s attention but sometimes miss the mark and create the wrong impression. Those don’t sound like the ... Read more

Is Christ Divided?

The eyes of the world — the church world at least — were on the United Methodist Church's called General Conference in February (see report). Would they be able to resolve their deep conflicts and stay together? After the Methodists voted, attention moved on. In these conflicted days, there will always be new occasions to ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #5

Observation: There is at present no clear desire in some of the courts of the PCC to uphold current biblical, doctrinal, and moral standards. If we are unwilling at General Assembly and presbytery levels to address the contrast between practice and God’s Word, why bother to propose new legislation that will also not be upheld? ...

Observations and Affirmations #4

Observation: The 1994 PCC Statement on Human Sexuality affirms that there is no sin in having same sex attraction but rather in its indulgence and particularly in its promotion – just as it is when one is attracted outside of marriage to the opposite sex. Is the word "sin" is still in your vocabulary? If ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #3

Observation: God’s Word is irrefutable: a) homosexual behaviour is a sin, b) desiring obedience to God’s Word is a necessity for those who wish to be in a covenantal relationship to Him. As Carmen Laberge recently reminded us, “The issue is never the issue – but God”. Psalt is aware that our recent emergence in ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #2

Observation: LGBTQ advocacy in the PCC is long-standing and is manifested unhindered in some congregations and Presbyteries. The reasons for this presence will be outlined in Bulletin #5 in this series. However, the source of the lobby is clearly in the shifting winds of our increasingly secular culture and not in Scripture. Freedom, rights, and ... Read more
