I’m Offended ;-)

Here’s a comment posted on GreenBagginses by one of the more vocal but polity- and historically-challenged Federal Visionists in the PCA:

There are the true human beings who are to be entrusted to guard the denomination and then there are the sub human animals who don’t even get the privileges that Luther received from the Roman Catholics. This is just sickening. Like waking up and finding that all your family were turned into vampires over night and are ready now to eat you.

Here’s my response:

I’m genuinely offended. The last time I and my brothers (fellow officers in good standing in the PCA, to use a phrase of which you seem fond) were equated to Satan. Now we’ve been demoted to mere vampires. Nobody likes to be demoted. My feelings are hurt. Really.

Now, explain to me again Eph 4:29-32 and James 1:26? Or maybe they don’t use those books in the Missouri canon.

Oh, you can find the Satan accusation excerpted here for your convenience:

instead of being a committee searching for truth it was a Satan to accuse the Brethren outside the courts of the PCA where the rights of the accused are safe-guarded.

Just as a reminder, the PCA Ad Interim Study Committee on Federal Vision, et al, did exactly what it was tasked to do by the 34th General Assembly, nothing more and nothing less. Its recommendations were approved almost unanimously by the 35th General Assembly. Does that make the whole denomination Satanic? Enquiring minds want to know…
