Last week saw a number of posts related to the ongoing debate over Federal Vision theology in Siouxlands Presbytery of the PCA. Allow me to summarize what has transpired since I last posted on this topic.
TE Wes White posted some additional information on his blog that drew a lot of attention. One post included the actual paper that TE Josh Moon used to defend TE Greg Lawrence who was the subject of two presbytery investigations (both found a strong presumption of guilt that he teaches Federal Vision theology). By Friday it was reported that TE Moon contacted TE White requesting that the paper be removed since it was 'copyrighted' material. TE White complied but the paper is still available elsewhere.
It is worth noting that TE Moon's paper was dissected by another presbyter, TE Lane Keister, in his protest against Siouxland's dismissing the first investigative committee without action. That analysis is available here. It should be noted that TE Moon dismissed this analysis out-of-hand but it garnered the praise of none other but R. Scott Clark of Westminster Seminary in California available here. TE Moon's request to remove his paper from the web is suspicious. Seems to me that if it is good enough to distribute on the floor of presbytery and to be disseminated to individual congregations then it ought to be good enough for wider circulation. Could it be that it is attracting too much attention?
Finally, now that the second investigative committee has been dismissed a complaint has been filed and it will be heard at a called meeting later this month. Will there be a third committee formed? Will charges be forthcoming? We'll see.
