GS 2004 Article 103 – Appeal of br. T.J.C. Kingma against Arts. 45, 59, 73 of Synod Neerlandia and Art. 91 of Synod Coaldale
The committee again presented its proposal on the appeal of br. T.J.C. Kingma against Arts. 45, 59, 73 of Synod Neerlandia 2001 and Art. 91 of Synod Coaldale 1977. After several rounds of discussion, the following was adopted:
An appeal from br. T.J.C. Kingma against Articles 45, 59 and 73 of Synod Neerlandia 2001, as well as Article 91 of Synod Coaldale 1977
The appeal is declared inadmissible since this brother has not presented this appeal to classis and regional synod (cf. Article 31 C.O.). As he himself states in his appeal: “because all discussion with his local consistory is finished concerning the point at issue in this appeal, the undersigned believes it best to send this appeal directly to Synod ’04.” (cf. Article 20, Acts of General Synod Chatham 2004).
