PCA SJC Rules on Overtures in the Leithart Case

November 2013

At the 2013 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) three overtures were made requesting the Standing Judicial Committee (SJC) to take over original jurisdiction in the TE Peter Leithart case. In October the SJC ruled on those overtures – all three in the negative. Leithart, who has since moved to Alabama, remains in good standing in the PCA. Further, the leadership of the PCA has shown that it will not defend the Gospel against heresy. Echoes of the PCUSA anyone?
