Belhar Adopted

It is an historic morning. The General Synod provisionally adopted the Belhar Confession. The vote was strong and clear. The delegates from South Africa were delighted and grateful. This is a culmination of years of work, prayer, study and struggle.

  1. There is joy in Heaven! This was THE issue of lasting significance for this Synod and the strong vote in favor is something that every RCA person can celebrate.

  2. No intention to add any pessimism. But while the voice was strong, still there was almost a third of the delegates who did not support R50. I wish it had have been a more string voice. Its difficult for church to confess fully, when only 70% are confession.Just some of my thoughts.
