I just got back from General Assembly to my sister-in-law’s house in Colorado, after flying from Norfolk to DFW to Denver. It was a sweet General Assembly for me, since I spent pretty much the whole time talking with friends and making new friends. I must admit that after so much of the nonsense that has been going on in the PCA, I had thought seriously of leaving. However, after I saw how many good men and women are still in the PCA, my love for her was renewed, and I remembered that she is definitely worth the fight. It made me more indignant than ever at those who would keep pushing at the confession with a knife, threatening to snap its threads. For they truly are the schismatics. Confessional types aren’t moving at all. But not much pushing was happening at this GA, for which I was very thankful. In fact, it was generally a fairly quiet General Assembly.
The alumni dinner for Westminster Theological Assembly is also an event I never miss when I go to GA. This dinner reminded me of how much I appreciate WTS. I got to sit next to Dr. David Garner and Dr. David McWilliams. That was pretty sweet. I got to talk to Dr. McWilliams about his new Galatians commentary, and to Dr. Garner about the new initiatives on the doctrine of Scripture that are starting.
