PCA Report on the Federal Vision

The 34th PCA General Assembly appointed an ad interim committee "to study the soteriology of the Federal Vision, New Perspective, and Auburn Avenue Theologies which are causing confusion among our churches. Further, to determine whether these viewpoints and formulations are in conformity with the system of doctrine taught in the Westminster Standards, whether they are hostile to or strike at the vitals of religion, and to present a declaration or statement regarding the issues raised by these viewpoints in light of our Confessional Standards (MGA 34:229-30)."

The report is now here. Doug Wilson, though saying that the report contains some "standard misunderstandings," appreciates that "the timbre of the report was judicious, and it looked to me as though the committee members did labor to understand us."
