Presbyterians Standing for Apostolic Love and Truth

PSALT’s Response to the Remits

The unity of the Presbyterian Church in Canada is being challenged. In this generation, people wonder “Can this church hold together?” The best answer to that question is to look at how the church has held together in its history. In 1875, four synods growing out of the Church of Scotland joined to form the ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #10

Observation: Just as Israel was called out from Babylonian exile to re-establish itself as the visible people of God, the church of Christ is, in today's secular culture, also being called out to be more visible. It will be those who want to be faithful to Scripture. "Plow new ground for yourselves, plant righteousness, and ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #9

Observation: We are to put our love for God and His Word above all other loves. As God's Word instructs us, we are to also love one another, but only the Word of our Creator can teach us how to properly and effectively love one another. Who of us has not gone to summer camp ... Read more

Letter to Evangelicals

Psalt has not yet issued an official statement regarding the 145th General Assembly's adoption of option "B" in the Report of the Special Committee of Former Moderators and the subsequent Remits on Human Sexuality and Marriage, as we have been busy helping to facilitate interactions between various groups in the PCC.

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
