For if the bugle produces an indistinct sound, who will prepare himself for battle. (1 cor. 14:8)
Paul, in 1 Corinthians, writes about speaking in tongues and the need for clarity in the message that is given. He upholds as a better means of clarity, revelation, knowledge, prophecy and teaching. I would like to say that the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is speaking in tongues. The messages are truly indistinct. Here are several examples.
On Twitter, World Mission Director, Hunter Farrell linked to a letter from Rev. Refat Fathy, the General Secretary of the Evangelical Presbytery Church in Egypt. Fathy explains the situation including the reality that the gatherings of the Muslim Brotherhood “included armed banditry that terrorized citizens and showed contempt for the law, and defied the authority of the state.” He went on to explain the violence that happened to churches and Christian businesses and gave a complete outline of how Christians must act in the midst of the turmoil.
I contrast this with the prayer Stated Clerk, Gradye Parsons offered. Neither Parsons or anyone else from the office of the General Assembly have acknowledged the great suffering of the Christians of Egypt. The one exception I have seen is Farrell’s Twitter link. A formal prayer which fails to address the pain of brothers and sisters in Christ is a disconnect from reality and is definitely, when contrasted with the letter on the PCUSA mission page, a garbled and indistinct sound. What are the feelings of the PC (U.S.A.) leadership toward the Christians of Egypt? Why hasn’t the Presbyterian News Service offered any news about the destruction of churches in Egypt?
