Here is part II of Scott Clark's interview with PCA pastor Lane Keister. It picks up where last week's discussion of Federal Vision theology left off. Between those interviews the Standing Judicial Commission of the PCA rendered its opinion on the Peter Leithart case. This clip begins with a discussion of the implications of that ruling.
The second half of this broadcast explores theonomy as espoused by James Jordan, who is considered by many to the be the godfather of the Federal Vision movement. Recently Jordan has made some public comments that show his true colors, and perhaps the colors of many who are Federal vision. Clark plays some of those clips and along with Keister they offer comment. This is not to say that all Federal Vision folks are theonomic but there are some influences that might not be readily apparent.
One thing that Jordan says that I strongly agree with is that the time has come for Federal Vision folks in the PCA and other denominations to leave. He realizes that the FV views will not be tolerated and his advice is to leave rather than put one's family and church through a lengthy investigation and/or trial. NOTE: these comments were made prior to the SJC decision on Peter Leithart.
You would do well to spend a few minutes listening to this podcast. I think that you will see Federal Vision in a new light.
