The PCA's Proposed Statement of Identity: Can Two Walk Together Except They Be Agreed?

"Can two walk together except they be agreed?" - Amos 3:3

The proposed "Identity" statement answers the question "can two walk together except they be agreed?" In the affirmative, at least if we can just agree to disagtee. It states "We want to learn to live successfully with the allowable diversity in the Reformed Faith rather than to eliminate it through political means ... Our desire is to be ... A Reformed Church Always Reforming."

The revival of A Concerned Presbyterian Movement and a proposed "Identity" statement for the PCA have brought to a head the fact that there are different theological currents, if not rivers, within the PCA and that particular issues are dividing and perhaps, as they put it, distracting the PCA from devoting her energy and resources to her "primary" mission in Christ. Therefore, we ought to be sincerely grateful for these efforts to call the church to identify, address, and resolve these issues.
