Abortion and the Bible
ABORTION AND THE BIBLE: a study presented to the Committee on Abortion of the Presbytery of the Dakotas
This paper, originally presented to the Presbytery of the Dakotas in March 1971, can also be found in the Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, May 15 – May 20, 1972, pp. 23-26. The cultural situation in which we live has changed since this study was produced. Written today, it likely would have a different emphasis. The principles of the Word of God, however, remain unchanged. Transliteration of Hebrew and Greek words has been added.

Walking through Trial Procedure: An Informal Look at an Ecclesiastical Trial
In the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, a member cannot be formally disciplined by either the pastor or ruling elders simply accusing him of sin. Rather, a trial must take place. The Book of Discipline of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Chapter IV, provides the constitutional guidelines for conducting a trial in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. This paper is in no way a replacement for the constitution nor even a commentary on it. Rather, it attempts to describe in informal, non-technical language, some of the highlights of that chapter, as judicial process can be confusing, particularly as its use is, thankfully, infrequent.
