I have had a few readers ask about the future of the blog.
The time is fast approaching for me to be finished.
I started it with a specific purpose, and that was to tell the “story” about Rev. Lanning’s deposition and what caused me to leave the PRC.
That story is coming to a close.
What Hoeksema said to the PRC in the decade after the split of 1924 will apply to the RPC and to me someday as well: “And, though deploring the necessity of separation and division in the Church of Christ in the world, the Protestant Reformed Churches, rather than wistfully glancing back at what might have been in the past, may well rest in God’s sovereign good pleasure, and stretch themselves to what lieth before.”
There are only a few more chapters for me to write.
I want yet to give a testimony to the continued reformation of Christ’s church. I also want to answer the question of those who have asked why I am writing this blog and why I am convinced I have the right to do so.
And a few final posts to try and appease my conscience, which continues to reproach me that I have not done enough to warn the church, and the people, that I love.
Beyond that, if something demands a response, or if something arises about which I feel I must speak, I will do that.
In the meantime, I intend to work with a search-engine expert who can help me so that when someone searches for “PRC” or “Protestant Reformed church” or something similar, then this blog will be one of the first results to appear.
That’s not because I think my writing is anything special or that the blog itself is anything special.
And it’s not because of any vindictiveness, spite, or anger. I have none. God knows.
I want the world to know what the Protestant Reformed Churches did with faithful officebearers. I want the world to know what the PRC did with the truth that was entrusted to her. I want the world to know, for as long as computers and websites and blogs exist, what the PRC think of Jesus Christ.
So that the world can be warned.
I want those who are considering joining the PRC, especially the “simple,” who are those who might be deceived by the “good words and fair speeches” of the PRC (Rom. 16:18), to know what they are getting themselves into. So that any individual, church, or fellowship who might find themselves the object of mission efforts by the PRC will be warned about the false doctrine and corruption that exists within her walls.
What the reader of the blog does with this knowledge I cannot control.
I pray they will take this information and flee.
Or they might not.
But they will have been warned.
Which was my calling.
“Give them warning from me” (Ezek. 3:17).

God be praised, Jeff. Thank you for sharing these texts.
It has been a great pleasure for me to get to know you . I thank God for your witness to the truth. I stand in awe daily at the church I called my church for 34 years. The lack of knowledge has definitely destroyed. Hosea 4:6.
We stand amazed at God’s work. And we are thankful for the reformation of His church.
It is my prayer that we may be yet allowed to speak someday of the rejection and persecution my family endured, the complete denial of what a Church and her office bearers are called to do. It is so utterly wicked.
But we must also look ahead, we can wipe the dust off our feet.
God preserves His church. Even as He has promised in His word.
Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
Yours in Christ
