Just noted this on the Orthodox Presbyterian Church website:
On recommendation #5, the General Assembly declined to enter into a relationship of Ecclesiastical Fellowship with the the Gereformeerde Kerken in Nederland (vrijgemaakt), in view of concerns regarding its full commitment to a Reformed understanding of the sufficiency, interpretation and authority of Scripture. (h.t. GvP on Refnet)
That could put the OPC into an interesting situation at the ICRC, sitting at an ecumenical conference with a federation with whom they have refused ecclesiastical fellowship. I hope that we’ll be hearing more from the OPC on their concerns. After all, the purpose of the ICRC includes this:
Article III – Purpose
The purpose of the Conference shall be:
1. to express and promote the unity of faith that the member churches have in Christ;
2. to encourage the fullest ecclesiastical fellowship among the member churches;
If I remember correctly, the OPC objected to continuing membership of the CRC in NAPARC, so there is a precedent.
