A classis overture to the RCA...

"The Zeeland Classis overtures the [Reformed Church in America] General Synod of 2006 in Pella, Iowa, to rescind the action of its decision in General Synod 2005, “to immediately begin an honest and intentional denomination-wide dialogue on homosexuality” and that the General Synod of 2006 reaffirm previous General Synod decisions and statements from 1978 and 1995 that scripture teaches that homosexual behavior is sin, and further, that General Synod call all Classes and Consistories to exercise scriptural discipline, according to the Book of Church Order, in the case of those who teach and preach any doctrine contrary to scripture."
