A Falling Away First.....

Following up on my “No Church Today” blog below, in order to really finalize the apostasy there are yet changes that need to be made to the Presbyterian (USA) documents and confessions.

There is that pesky W-4.9001 of their Book of Order: “Marriage is a civil contract
between a woman and a man.” That statement can no longer be tolerated. Marriage must be redefined.

Need to re-do G-6.0106b. WHAT? They just changed it. Well, Viola Larson gave the definitive interpretation of what it means to joyfully submit to the Lordship of Christ as stated in the recent change and now it MUST be changed to eliminate that “submission to the Lordship of Christ” clause. See HERE

Chapter 26 of the 1967 re-worked Confession of Faith still has this little unseemly statement: “Marriage is a union between one man and one woman, designed of God to last so long as they both shall live.” This must be removed. Why not just scrap the whole Westminster Confession? That’d be easier. Since the majority of Presbyterian pastors reportedly do not believe that scriptures are of “divine authority and infallible truth” scraping the WCF would also make “inerrancy” moot. (WCF chap I, para V)

Prepare the overtures. General Assembly is only a year away. In my opinion, these are just a few of the changes that must be made to eliminate any labeling of the denomination as “schizophrenic”. (disorganized speech and thinking, and it is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction) If Jesus’ earthly ministry were in this day and age Matthew 16:6 might read this way: “Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees PC(USA). (Strangely enough, all the letters of PCUSA are contained in the strikethrough.)
