Presbyterian in Name Only 0415

John Knox founded the Presbyterian church in the 1500s. Back then the doctrinal statements of most Protestant denominations were pretty similar. The largest presbyterian denomination (Presbyterian Usa) has fell into practical apostasy if not doctrinal apostasy. For those who belong to this denomination, review the doctrinal statement of their founders:
Jesus is the only head of the church created at Pentecost and adopted by Christ. The Bible is the Word of God and Jesus is the Word of God who became flesh and dwelt among us. This Word was completed by God’s inspiration through the Apostles and canonized by God at the death of the last Apostle, John. Ever since then, evil men have tried to corrupt God’s word, by adding, subtracting, re-interpreting or denying its everlasting authority. Such were the authors of the false Gospels, the Catholics, the Moslems, the Mormons, and the modernist/progressives, to name a few.
With all the different interpretations and denominations that exist, it is becoming more popular to be ecumenical and accept every faith that claims its origin or existence to the bible, old and/or New Testament. This is foolish and evil. The Bible is the only source of true doctrine and it was and is unchanging and unchangable. The reformers rediscovered Holy scripture and rejected unbiblical practices added or changed by the Catholics. Sadly, they failed to test every doctrine and tradition, keeping much of the corruption added by the apostate Roman Catholic leadership. Fortuneately, we still have the Bible, kept uncorrupted by God. True Christianity stands on the history, promises, precepts, doctrines, practices, and warnings of the Bible. True Christian unity, authorized by God and His word, can only include those who accept only biblical authority and practice only Biblical doctrine. Salvation is a supernatural work of God only and for those God sovereignly chose to save. Sadly, the Presbyterian Usa denomination, as do many other denominations, rejects biblical authority and have become worldly, carnal, corrupt and to a growing degree, functional atheists. John Knox would roll over in his grave and puke, if possible, at what is taught and practiced today in many churches that bear the Presbyterian name.

The Presbyterian Usa church, as do many other denomination, preach from a lectionary that doesn’t include significant portions of both old and new testaments. Passages that condemn worldliness like Romans 1:18-32 are NEVER shared. Biblical authority and infallibility is denied. Literal passages of the Bible are called myths or called merely symbolic or metaphoric. Even miraculous events are denied in the name of naturalism. Biblical creation accounts written as and quoted by Jesus as literal historical accounts are denied in the name of higher criticism of scripture,  a Big Bang origin, Evolutionary creation, or science predicated on naturalism or rationalism, so called. 

Contrary to what most people believe, what is called historical science, is secular philosophy incorrectly called science. Scientific method requires repeatability and testability. Planetary physics can be tested by observation. The origin of the universe and creation of the earth we live on and the geology, plants and animals we observe, alive and in fossils, cannot be repeated, and tested by observation and proven. Sadly, they are taught as fact instead of philosophy. Many Christians are deceived to accept this lie and deny the Biblical creation account and history. If the bible isn’t trustworthy in creation and history, how can it be trustworthy  in salvation which is every bit as much a miracle as creation is. Consequently, many modernist progressive Christians of today substitute social Gospel for righteousness, thinking it is unloving to share God’s condemnation of sin or his promise to redeem the lost who repent from their sins. 

“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 

For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. “(‭Galatians‬ ‭1‬:‭6-8, 10‬ NKJV)

  1. I was following along with the context of the post until I got to the very end and noticed you are quoting from the NKJV. It is just as skewed in its theology as the incorrect texts you cited that are being used by the Presbyterian Usa and other denominations.

    • Could you be more specific? What version do you use. I look at kjv and esv, too. Let’s compare them together and see how different or similar they are. What quote specifically do you take issue with?
