Maybe I could pull this off?
Wait a minute, does this mean I should be bound to any French covenants as
well as Scot? This could get confusing.
What you are now witnessing is an elder of the Reformed Presbyterian
Church of North America (called Covenanters) mocking the descending
obligations of national covenants, one of the distinctive doctrines of
their Church when it first came to America. This phenomena is something
that puzzles me. They hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith, and
yet testify against it, and they can assert the descending obligations
of the National Covenant and the Solemn League and Covenant on a web
page ( http://www.bright.net/~covvie/who.html -- "Two basic covenants
we're still bound by are the National Covenant of 1638
<http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/NatCov.htm> and the Solemn
League and Covenant
<http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/CRTSol.htm>."), while an elder
from that very congregation mocks the same doctrine.
Fortunately, elders mocking have no bearing on whether what they are
mocking is truth or not. Matthew 26:57, 67, 68
Those labelled Steelites own the original Westminster Standards, and the
descending obligation of the Covenants, without testifying against them
or mocking them, like the RPCNA used to do when they first came to this
country, even after the "Steelites" left them (the original split had
more to do with the issue of voluntary association with people of other
religious professions, and the refusal of the RPCNA to even discuss this
