    The events are all events related to the Federal Vision controversy in the Siouxlands Presbytery.

    “2. The committee appointed at the called meeting to investigate TE Lawrence recommended to the Presbytery by a 6-0 vote that it find a strong presumption of guilt in the teaching of TE Lawrence.”

    Was this due to pressure and/or influence of a report by a committee of the SJC? If the SJC says that the Presbytery should begin legal process against Laurence and the Presbytery says, no, they would rather he receive instruction by people of his choice, does the SJC have any power to enforce their will? Or was initiating process just a recommendation?

    Tim, the committee was a committee of Presbytery. The Presbytery technically did not have to act on the recommendation. I’m not sure what would happen if the Presbytery did not follow instructions from General Assembly.

    Thanks, Wes. I was led to believe that there was a recommendation by the SJC, and I wondered what form it took.

    Wes, thank you for the chronology of events. It is confusing for outsiders to follow what is happening. Where does this issue stand now? Does the committee have to re-examine TE Lawerence or will it be brought before the SJC?
