appeal to brethren at Immanuel Presbyterian Church, which remains as
Since I have also been copied in, perhaps I can add a comment?
At the very least, I think it's imperative Immanuel asks serious
questions immediately about supporting a worker who lectures at a
faculty frequently enough to be listed on its faculty website, a
faculty documented in print and online for well over a year to have
close links with senior Roman, liberal and Orthodox clergy and to be
engaged, not in cobelligerency, but in ecumenical bridge building with
Islam. Either he should be pressed to withdraw or the church if it has
a concern for evangelical witness should withhold its support.
To argue that that he has an opportunity to 'present the Reformed
Faith' whilst ministerially cooperating with heresy is a grave
misjudgement and profoundly out of character with the New Testament
pattern (Rom.16.17, Gal.1.8-9, Rev.2.14-16).
To address your questions to [a Polish brother, about whether the
matter had been corroborated and raised first with the parties
involved], from our perspective, the history of the way in which these
matters have at each point been raised with the participants and only
escalated in the face of persistent inaction is also given on the same
site. Sadly, the history of interchurch dealings so far in this affair
has been rather dismally in the wrong direction, it would be refreshing
to see this addressed faithfully and thoroughly,
Yours in Christ,
