The Recent Demise of the RPNA(GM) Court on 3/10/08

What appears to be the real deal regarding the dissolution of the RPNA(GM) Session has surfaced.
Further, both Prov. 25:25 and Prov. 24:17,18 would seem to be applicable:

"As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country".
"Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him".

DV more comments will follow.

3/16/08, Landmarks To The Abuse of Scripture, History and Reason

Updated Remarks on the Recent "Moving the Landmarks" Sermon.

The chief contention in all that follows with the sermon of 12/23/07 in the subtitle, is that it does not go far enough and penetrate to the real state of affairs in that particular corner of Zion known as the RPNA(GM). Much ado is made about moving the doctrinal landmarks of the church, primarily the Terms of Communion of the historic Reformed Presbyterian Covenanted Church and not without merit. Yet nothing at all is said about the erection of additional conscience binding landmarks by the "lawful spiritual eldership" of the RPNA(GM) to stand alongside those historic Terms of Communion.

In other words, as before, we are speaking of the unofficial, but still very official papers from the "Session" of the RPNA(GM), Tattoos and the Word of God (TATWOG) (4/30/06) and the Position Paper on Sessional Authority (PPSA) (6/4/06). As in you may, you can and you really will get excommunicated for disagreeing with or having doubts about them, although inconsistently the "Confidential" Oath only includes the last. And just as in the sermon, you will also be hard pressed to find any mention of them at all publicly, even on the official RPNA(GM) website. As a consequence of this officially approved omission, these two items might be very inauspicious motes, but they are motes nonetheless in the eagle eye of our RPNA(GM) sermonizer, who all the while criticizes the scandals and shortcomings of others. To whom much is given, much after all, is required (Lk.12:48), whether they are willing to acknowledge it or not.
