PUP Update & Birmingham Declaration

PUP Report Update
Some hopeful news, a motion was made that was closely defeated to refer the PUP report to the Presbyteries for 2 years of discernment. This is a great idea, and will most likely be a minority report on the floor of the assembly. This makes amazing sense because so many commissioners and presbyteries are confused on the ramifications on the PUP report. In addition, the assembly is so split on the issue, by definition we can achieve Unity if we are divided on this issue.

"Indeed, there have to be factions among you, for only so will it become clear who among you are genuine." (1 Corinthians 11:19 NRSV)

Heard this piece of the Word of God at a dinner today. What a amazing call to Evangelicals to stay in this denomination and be willing to fight and suffer for the Truth of Jesus Christ. Our witness could bring not only this denomination the Lord, but those outside of the Truth. Jesus, the Way, will show the way to all. He works in the impossible. May Evangelicals proclaim loudly in Birmingham that Sovereign Lord Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and the Life. May Jesus be our declaration now and forever.
