Just say no to "expanding the church's vocabulary of praise and wonder..."

...if you're a member of the Presbyterian Church, USA.

The divine Trinity — "Father, Son and Holy Spirit" — could also be known as "Mother, Child and Womb" or "Rock, Redeemer, Friend" at some Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) services under an action Monday by the church's national assembly.

This does not alter the church's theological position, said one spokesman.

Yeah. Right.

UPDATE: Estimable refers me to this link on Powerline. It is a small wonder Machen founded the OPC. Think how much worse it's gotten over the years. (But God's Word doesn't change. And His gospel will not be silenced. Amen.)

Another Update: "Membership in the denomination, which has fallen by half over the past four decades to 2.3 million congregants, fell another 2 percent in 2005, the worst single decline in thirty years." I'm not sure this man's $150 million gift will help.

technically, the spokeman's right...they made no change to their Book of Confessions--so no alteration of the official theology. And it's no practical change...this kind of thing has been going on for quite some time anyway...nice of them to put it on paper.

I realize the "technically." But lots of things can be technically true and still false.

"King" and "Prince," though in the new proposal for more inclusive trinitarian language, are not gender inclusive. Maybe they've skipped out on logic as well as soul.

I was thinking the same thing, ibid.
