Paisley and Presbytery.

Tomorrow night , Presbytery of  The Free Presbyterian Church in Northern ireland will meet behind closed doors in Lisburn to elect new office bearers.

At the September meeting in Belfast, Dr Paisley, obviously under great  pressure, told Presbytery that he would be standing down as Moderator and wouldn’t be seeking re-election.

But this may not be enough. Many, because of  his political stand especially over the past eighteen months, believe that he must not remain within the church’s ministry; that his role as a politician is totally incompatible with his position as a Gospel minister.

May The Lord give  Presbytery the Grace and strength to deal effectively with this ungoing debilitating situation.
