Missouri Presbytery (PCA) Denies Complaint Against Exoneration of TE Jeffrey Meyers

TE Wes White is reporting that the Missouri Presbytery of the PCA has denied a complaint against he exoneration of TE Jeffrey Meyers (related to charges of Meyers teaching Federal Vision, and other false doctrines). You can read the full article here:

I can't add much to what Wes has already said, but I will say that it was discouraging for me to hear of this news at first. Then, I came to realize that the Presbytery already tolerated false teaching in the first place, so this procedural step should not come as much of a surprise. I'm sure the action will be appealed and pray that the truth will prevail upon appeal. I will quote the same section of the Presbytery's report that Wes quotes. It is troubling that this is the view of supposedly Reformed, Confessional men:

“ . . . no one school of interpretation on these disputed issues should be adopted as the only orthodox position to the exclusion of the others.” (Report of the Complaint Review Committee, 62)

So much for WCF 1.9 ("IX. The infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture is the Scripture itself: and therefore, when there is a question about the true and full sense of any Scripture (which is not manifold, but one), it must be searched and known by other places that speak more clearly.").

Sad. Very sad. May God have mercy on the PCA.
