Who /presbyterian/ here?
>>10242115was raised presbyterian, but wouldn't consider myself a Christian nowadays
>>10242121Come home Christian man, Christ has conquered the world.
>>10242134But you lot have gay marriages and gay priests, and women bishops.
>>10242420All moderately sized churches are pozzed, that tends to happen when their hierarchy is eroded by the demoshit cities they reside in
>>10242115I'm a non-denominational congregationalist.
>>10242115I am. Well, kinda. I was formerly a reformed baptist but then became a Presbyterian shortly after joining a Presbyterian church. I disagree with limited atonement and perseverance of the saints but agree with the rest of TULIP. So basically TUI. Well, I guess I implies P so TU. So I guess you could say I'm somewhat of a classical Arminian but I do agree with a lot of what the Presbyterian church says such as infant baptism.
>>10242420That’s really just PCUSA.You could join an PCA, EPC or OPC church. >tfw denominations within denominations Alas the double edged sword of the Reformation.
>>10242420Tell me more about these Presbyterian gay "priests" and women bishops who believe in the verbal inspiration of Scripture, accept Genesis as fact and believe that Jesus' claim to be the only way is exclusive,
>>10242613The PCUSA does not believe any of those things... They are also dying off tbf.
>>10242624Yes that's my point, they don't even follow their own confessionnal standard anymore, for the most part ever since Radical Orthodoxy entered their seminaries
>>10242664Yes it is a lamentable thing as is the fact that LGBT Presbyterian ministers exist at all. I'm sure we would both agree they aren't real Presbyterians but they have the label nonetheless. However it is encouraging to witness Christ's words from John 15:6 fulfilled as the corrupted Mainline denominations wither right before our eyes.
>>10242115I attended a conservative Presbyterian Church prior to covid
Are you more of a R.C. Sproul or Tim Keller kind of guy? Vote now.
why not /catholic/ ?
>>10242738>but they have the label nonetheless.This is probably the worst thing about them, just imagine the number of people they've repulsed and the consequences of associating their iniquity with their heritage
>>10242782We are Catholic, not to be confused with the Roman Popery that is fake and gay.
>>10242785>They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.1 Jn 2:19
>>10242751I'm a Thomas Boston kind of guy>>10242782Because we disagree on some very important things.
>>10242793Amen brother, may the Lord allow you to persevere in his grace>>10242828John Colquhoun
>>10242115>>10242134who is they their hair wavy and curly, they black. has this been acknowedged or white washed
>>10242828>Because we disagree on some very important thingssuch as?
>>10242994Namely the doctrine of justification.
>>10242427No they're not. Yes, some of them have pozzed members and maybe pozzed clergymen, but the church's stances remain unpozzed. See Orthodoxy and Catholicism, the 2 biggest denominations. It's only protestant denominations, especially those traditional ones that are pozzed. Lutherans, Presbyterians, Anglicans/Episcopalians, Methodists, etc.
>>10242533This is the end result of partaking in the heresy of protestantism. Once you feel that you are the authority, of course it'll devolve into an endless series of breaking away.
>>10242793Sounds like that applies to all protestantism to me
>>10243100>>10243116Ritualism is not better
>>10243127Liturgy is not ritualism.
>>10243141That's not liturgy, that's ritualism. There's no solution to the depravity of the human heart in ritualism. Mere external rites are useless as much as circumcision. The average ritualist in romanist/greek churches is as dead as the sodomite episcopalian priest.
>>10242533PCA and OPC are less than one generation from becoming PCUSA 2.t. PCA member
>>10243294What makes you say that?
>>10243100There are liberal and conservative wings in Protestantism. Evangelicals are more conservative than both Roman Catholics and Orthodox. Someone post the frog .jpg with the graph comparing Evangelical opinions on gay marriage with Roman Catholics and Orthodox.
>>10243116The whole point of the Reformation was acknowledging that we (humanity) are not the authority, God's Word is. The Reformation was provoked by Papal abuse of authority.
>>10243339Notice how I said traditional ones, e.g. the traditional branches of Protestantism. The majority of them from top to bottom are pozzed.
>>10243294We live in the last generation, anon.
>>10243294so you'll have to split again? guess ""ritualism"" isn't actually so bad huh
