Good News! The PCA Has Affirmed the Nashville Statement

The Presbyterian Church in America, one of the non-heretical branches of presbyterianism in America, has affirmed the Nashville Statement, which is, to a degree, a modern creed on biblical sexual ethics.

This comes on the heels of the Souther Baptist Convention doing something similar.

I’m one of the original signatores on the Nashville Statement and I’m also in the PCA, so I am glad to see this happen.

Denny Burk has the details on this.

Our confessions give expression to our fundamental beliefs and mark out biblical boundaries so that we can both listen and speak with clarity in tender pastoral moments. That is what the Nashville Statement does. It gives theological guidance. It is not a script for evangelism or pastoral counseling. We don’t use any of our confessions as such a script, and it would be wrong to criticize the Nashville Statement on those grounds. Anyone who does criticize the Nashville Statement on those grounds needs to understand that all confessions would fail by that standard.
