Which still doesn’t indicate much, in my opinion. I don’t mind digging to see what’s below the surface, but remember that F4J, as far as I know has only recently implicated themselves in the homosexualist agenda. Was that surprising? No. More specifically it’s hard to believe it could have been surprising to Pastor Higgins who is on the board.
Prior to this coming out party, the picture is no different than Ligon Duncan being pictured being friendly with Tim Keller or any other PCA feminist—and there are plenty of those, and there is certainly something bad about it. But the GRN pic would only have caused us to say what Tyson said above if it were not for the words that came with it telling us that they were making peace with liberals.
Anybody willing to make common cause with Michelle Higgins in 2018 certainly knew about how she was striking a blow for feminism. But we should all recognize that she’s done nothing compared to her father. Or Sauls. Or Keller.
Here’s what it comes down to in my mind: every pastor and elder in the PCA has a closer connection with men like Sauls than Erwin Ince’s connection to Ms. Higgins. And since Sauls and his ilk are the cause of Ms. Higgins, and many others like her, the responsibility seems to fall just the same on every silent ordained man as it does on Ince, even if there aren’t pictures of them going along to get along like there are of Ince.
If somebody asked Ince if, given the picture, he was willing to speak in opposition to the planned F4J event’s plan and he refused, that would be news. Or if he promoted the event today, that would be news.
I hope that makes sense.
