ARPTalk Update

For those of you who have recently visited my blog, you may not be aware that I am an elder in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. My denomination has a college and seminary in South Carolina named Erskine College & Seminary. There has been a great deal of conflict between our institutions of higher learning, and our denomination for several years. Another bout has begun by the Erskine Board of Trustees (the same Board oversees both the college and the seminary) rejecting a compromise resolution of the Synod (compromise made with Erskine itself) dealing with the relationship of the Synod to the College. 

Dr. Charles Wilson, a minister in the ARP, has done an outstanding job of bringing to light the anti-ARP stance (I would add, the anti-Confessional stance) of many involved with Erskine and the ARP. He has a website devoted to the discussion of ARP/Erskine issues, which he has just updated. You can read his latest post, here: ARPTalk: Joe, That Ain't Rain.

It appears that Erskine will be a hot topic at Synod this year!

PS- You can see past posts on The Ruling Elder related to the ARP and Erskine by clicking the following blog labels: ARPTalk, Erskine.
