The Synod adopted the 2008 Report of the RPCNA’s Synod Study Committee to Read and Evaluate Reports and Response of Fraternal (and other) Reformed Denominations and Institutions Concerning the “Justification Controversy.” What a handle!
I am wondering what it will mean for the RPCNA? What exactly are the “theological views that are generally associated with the movements identified as ‘the New Perspective(s) on Paul’ and ‘The Federal Vision’.” The resolutions were adopted with few questions asked. Everyone is against it in general principle but what about the specifics? If questions had been asked, I wonder what would be said about the following items:
2) the primacy of biblical theology over systematic theology;
3) the doctrine of definitive sanctification;
4) uber-protestant “me-and-my-bible says so-ism” over against the received traditions of the Reformed Confessions.
What exactly have we learned from the “justification controversy”? These are things to think about in the days ahead. Who knows what the future will bring.
