PCA Promotes Lent

April 2005

Dear Friends,
In its denominational magazine, byFaith Online, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), which professes to believe the Westminster Confession of Faith, published an essay by Sam Wheatley, a PCA pastor in Salt Lake City, Utah, advocating the observance of Lent.

Here is the link:


Wheatley writes: "Fueled by a desire to encounter God with the heart along with the head, many have rediscovered our rich Christian tradition in meditation, journaling, quiet and retreat. Repentance, now that's another story.... Lent however brings repentance in from the cold and seats it at the head of the table.... This Lent reflect on the wonder of our Saviour...."

If the marks of a true church are the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the proper administration of the sacraments, and church discipline, where does that leave the PCA? It is riddled with heresies and heretics who, far from being rebuked for their errors, have their errors published in denominational publications.

P. S. Shortly after we sent this Horror File to our email list, someone took the article to which it refers off the byFaith Online website. We hope that this is a sign that someone in the PCA has both spiritual discernment and courage to act.
