It’s been long enough since the fundamentalist-modernist controversy that much of evangelicalism has coalesced or become indistinguishable from the old liberalism. The old lines between “liberals” and “conservatives” are fuzzy. Many in the mainline are unaware of the sideline or of the conflict and even fewer have ever heard an articulate account of what motivates one to be a sideline Presbyterian. So, when the Parker Williamson (of the prominent Presbyterian Layman) and Darryl Hart speak at a borderline (EPC) congregation to a group of largely mainline pastors, that’s an event. It’s an even bigger event when it takes place in Omaha—hardly a bastion of Old Side, Old School Presbyterianism.
