Federal Vision Investigation

The Standing Judicial Committee of the Presbyterian Church in America is currently taking up the issue of the so-called "Federal Vision" theology and its proponants. Though no charges have as yet been brought against him, as a part of this process, Pastor Steve Wilkins of Auburn Avenue Presbyterian Church was examined by his presbytery on December 9. An audio recording of the exam is now available on the church's web site. Having these transcripts should go a long way toward helping all of us sort through these very difficult, divisive issues.

I am curious about your views of the Federal Vision. Thanks!

Doug: As you may have gathered, I have very dear friends on both sides of this controversy. Thus, I have determinedly managed to stay out of the uglier aspects of the fray--but that is not because of any lack of clarity regarding my own views (I am unreservedly and publicly Westminsterian). Like so many others though, I am nearly as disturbed by the tenor of the debate as by the issues the debate has raised.

Dr. Grant - The ironic thing is that those on both sides of the issue claim to be "unreservedly and publicly Westminsterian". In fact if I am following it all correctly, those on the FV side of the fence claim to be more consistently Westminsterian than those who oppose them. It's curious how theological paradigms and positions morph over the generations. Sometimes folks think they are opposing heterodoxy, when in fact they are opposing the giants, whose shoulders they are standing on.
