The Federal Vision is still an issue. That should not surprise anyone. Some version of this error has been with us at least since the mid-16th century, when the Protestant doctrine of justification was severely threatened. It became a serious issue in the middle of the 17th century when Richard Baxter taught some aspects of it. It re-appeared most recently in 1974 and has continued to trouble us since. Enough time has passed that people are coming into contact with Reformed theology and with the Federal Vision who do not know what it is, that it has been rejected by the confessional Reformed and Presbyterian churches. People are still being catechized into the Federal Vision errors and those errors are transmitted to unsuspecting people and congregations through the internet.
