‘Revoice’ Claims Victory after the PCA Presbyteries Kill Anti-LGBTQ Overtures

8 months ago, the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) voted at their 2021 General Conference 1438-417 (71%) to adopt Overture 23, which states in full:

“Officers in the Presbyterian Church in America must be above reproach in their walk and Christlike in their character. Those who profess an identity (such as, but not limited to, ‘gay Christian,’ ‘same-sex attracted Christian,’ ‘homosexual Christian,’ or like terms) that undermines or contradicts their identity as new creations in Christ, either by denying the sinfulness of fallen desires (such as, but not limited to, same-sex attraction), or by denying the reality and hope of progressive sanctification, or by failing to pursue Spirit-empowered victory over their sinful temptations, inclinations, and actions are not qualified for ordained office.

This momentous vote was to be teeth-shattering, cartilage-crushing, skull-splintering blow to the satanic scourge that is Revoice, where the General Assembly declared that same-sex attractions in and of themselves are sinful, not just same-sex acts. Furthermore, any man who makes his sexuality part of his identity and affirms he’ll always struggle with same-sex attraction; denying the efficacy of a new heart upon one’s sexuality and denying that “such were some of you” is the normative expectation for Christians who are being sanctified by Christ, is not qualified to be Pastor.

They also voted 1130-692 (66%) to affirm Overture 37, which reads in part about pastoral candidates: :

Careful attention must be given to his practical struggle against sinful actions, as well as to persistent sinful desires. The candidate must give clear testimony of reliance upon his union with Christ and the benefits thereof by the Holy Spirit, depending on this work of grace to make progress over sin… While imperfection will remain, he must not be known by reputation or self-profession according to his remaining sinfulness, but rather by the work of the Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus.

In short, it was seen as a decisive win for critics of the denomination’s drift in recent years- faithful men and women who have been rattling their cages against Trojan Horse Schemes that were used to smuggle in liberalized language and postures used towards homosexuals and sodomites that is not found in the scriptures.

These “creeper-in-unawarers” denied that sanctification in Christ means that one’s sexuality will be ultimately, inexorably be redeemed by him, but rather they said that all must adopt a “humble hermeneutic; while arguing that some people will always struggle with their lusts and that their struggles are not sin but in some way a gift to the church.

After these two overtures were adopted, they were supposed to head to the Presbyteries for full ratification and to be included in the Book of Church Order, but they never got that far. They needed the approval of 2/3 of presbyteries, or 59 of the 88, but failed to meet that mark, with 30 voting it down, effectively killing it.

Cowards all.

Thankfully, while it failed to meet the 2/3 threshold, a majority of presbyteries did vote for ratification, meaning that with the next General Assembly coming up in a few short months, the remaining conservatives within the PCA who have not yet bowed the knee to the rainbow Baal will have a theological knife fight on their hands, as they yet again push the General Assembly to reject the leaven of Revoice and embrace the biblical view of sexuality.
