The PCA’s Study Report on Human Sexuality (2019-2020)

In 2019, the 47th General Assembly of the PCA voted to appoint a committee to study the issue of human sexuality with particular attention to the issues of homosexuality, same-sex attraction, and transgenderism. Among other topics, the committee addressed the nature of temptation, sin, repentance, and the difference between Roman Catholic and Reformed views of concupiscence as regards same-sex attraction; the propriety of using terms like “gay Christian” when referring to a believer struggling with same-sex attraction; the status of “orientation” as a valid anthropological category; and the practice of “spiritual friendship” among same-sex attracted Christians.

In 2021, the 48th General Assembly of the PCA commended the study report. The final report can be accessed here:
