The PCUSA 222 General Assembly (2016)
The 222nd General Assembly (GA) of the PCUSA will occur from June 18–25 in Portland, Oregon. It turns out that the official hosting Presbytery is the one that approved the Rev. John Shuck as a pastor. By so doing, the Presbytery of the Cascades welcomed an open, aggressive atheist into its membership.
You can learn more about this Presbytery’s contribution to the same-gender marriage debacle here and here. I’m certain that their prominent role in falsifying what Jesus Christ teaches about the institution of Christian marriage significantly contributed to earning them this honor.
Certainly the fact that they accepted an aggressive atheist as a pastor for one of their churches didn’t count against them. It was probably a plus, given the PCUSA’s love of inclusiveness for heretics.
I will have more to say about the 222nd General Assembly in the near future. We have already established that heretics are fine as pastors in the PCUSA. It’s possible that by this GA’s end, Bible trusting Christians will be under denominational condemnation.
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20, RSV)
