he was actually forwarded a call by Presbytery someone messed up;
licentiates are not to be given a call.
He may have been informed of an intended call, and given an intent to
accept it; but he really should not have been called and cannot accept
it; especially since he has not passed his final examinations. I have
never been comfortable with the practice of scheduling exams, ordination
and installation all at the same time. It puts an undue expectation to
vote "sustained" upon the elders at the meeting, and violates a
James 4:13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow £we will go to such
and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;
14whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your
life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then
vanishes away. 15Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall
live and do this or that.” 16But now you boast in your arrogance. All
such boasting is evil.
