Evangelical Theological Society Votes Not to Amend

It will stay about biblical inerrancy and the Trinity.

Last year, I blogged about an effort to amend the doctrinal basis of the Evangelical Theological Society. Several members felt that the organization's statement–which is limited to biblical inerrancy and the Trinity–did not sufficiently safeguard the organization's evangelical identity. The theologians (chiefly Ray Van Neste and Denny Burk) had proposed that the statement of belief used by the U.K.'s Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship be adopted instead.

The effort failed at today's ETS business meeting, I'm told, by at least a 2-to-1 margin, with the executive committee unanimously opposing the amendment.
