Taking Exception

Article by   July 2018
Presbytery possesses the power to instruct one of its members or licentiates not to teach a difference that the court has determined an exception. An exception is, in the eyes of the church, a departure from what the church understands the teaching of the Bible to be.

Theophany: A Biblical Theology of God Appearing

Article by   April 2018
