My response to Jack Haberer’s “Memo to the Grieving.”
You are right I am grieving alongside all of the orthodox in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). I am so deeply in grief that I sometimes find it hard to write.
But I have been in grief in this denomination before.
I grieve over our careless disregard for unborn babies.
I grieve over our failure to stop the anti-Semitism of the Israel Palestine Mission Network.
I grieve that we fail to discipline those who are ruling elders and elders of word and sacrament who do not believe in the deity of Jesus, the bodily resurrection, the work of Christ on the cross or even God.
I grieve over unconverted pastors and heretical seminary professors.
I grieve over my own self; my own coldness and carelessness, my desire to run to some safe place, my failure to weep over a dying denomination.
You sound rather harsh but perhaps we/I deserve it.
