“Rise up Church with broken wings
Fill this place with songs again
Of our God who reigns on high
By His grace again we’ll fly”

Shout to the North by Martin Smith

Like many mainline denominations, the PCUSA is replacing orthodox Christian doctrine for inclusive, diverse ideology, “centuries-old tradition”, and a washed down Gospel. Stumbled onto the Covenant Network and found this (emphasis mine):

In a recent article in the Presbyterian Outlook, Covenant Network Director Doug Nave discusses ordination standards in the wake of the 218th General Assembly.  His comprehensive analysis notes that the G.A.’s two important Authoritative Interpretations (“AIs”) provide real opportunity for faithfully inclusive ordinations, now.

The first AI (reaffirming the 2006 G.A. AI permitting consideration of scruples on matters of both belief and practice) “renewed the commitment to our centuries-old tradition of respect for the freedom of biblically-formed conscience.”

The second AI “corrected an error made thirty years ago that singled out a single, contested sexual ethic and made conscience irrelevant to it.”

As the church debates and considers the proposed Amendment 08-B (revising G-6.0106b), “the new AIs make clear that sessions and presbyteries are free to consider alternative interpretations in mutual forbearance where biblically-formed consciences differ.”

Someone please tell me what is a“biblically-formed conscience”?
Sound like sugar-coated humanism.

The online presence of the Presbyterian Lay Committee is an advocacy group supporting conservative positions in the denomination with Commentary and editorials.
