The Presbyterian Church in America has institutionalized incompetence

The PCA’s elders and pastors are precisely like everyone else in the country just now, and the PCA will die just like every other good institution has died, recently, because the PCA hates risk and nothing good gets done or protected without risk.

Which is a reminder that we have to be able to take risks anyway. “Here I stand; I can do no other …”

My father is a retired A/G pastor. He describes that movement/tradition as having what he called an “entrepreneurial” culture, by which he meant that it had men in it who were prepared to go out on a limb and take risks - especially to their reputations. The successes from this approach were impressive, and the failures likewise - and over the years I’ve seen some doozies of the latter - but it would be sad to see that movement go off the boil because people got too careful.
