Presbyterians Standing for Apostolic Love and Truth

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. A group of traditionally ... Read more

Observations and Affirmations #8

Observation: We are afraid of confrontation. Dairmaid MacCullough, in his book All Things made New states, "Calvin's theology, like that of Augustine's thrived on conflict." "Where the Lord walks, storms arise" (Nahum 1:3b GNT). "But mommy, the emperor has no clothes on!" Do you remember this innocent line from your childhood story? Parents had promised ... Read more

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? ...
