The Editor of ARPTalk is hearing from numerous sources that there is going to be another meeting of the Investigatory Commission of General Synod on Erskine College and Seminary. Why would the Commission meet again? There is only one reason for the Commission to meet: NEW ERSKINE MATTERS.
Is the Executive Board of General Synod being manipulated so as to function as the equivalent of an ecclesiastical BISHOP for the General Synod of the ARP Church (GSARPC)? As the ecclesiastical ARP BISHOP, the Executive Board would have the authority to veto and/or modify the actions of the GSARPC in certain matters. Certainly, the members of the EBGS have the right of their opinions; however, they do not have the right to act as an ecclesiastical ARP BISHOP and reverse and/or modify the actions of the GSARPC that are clear and unambiguous.
