    This is a very unprecedented move by The Presbyterian Church to blatantly remove The San Francisco Theological Seminary from its list of Seminaries for aligning themselves with the non-sectarian Redlands. The Presbyterian Church, while invoking their ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the church’s courts, is sending a disturbing message to the general public. Jesus, the Christ, did not become sin to maintain an ecclesiastical jurisdiction, but did so to save a dying world. Let us be very careful when utilize the court of law to keep those we deem unworthy out of the “Church.” If a non-sectarian organization found it not robbery to merge with a dying theological institution, shouldn’t the church, along with the seminary, work together to ensure its viability as they create new alliances with organizations to which they would otherwise have no access? This imposed ruling is beyond the board of trustees’ scope of authority and should be appropriately addressed.
