Re: Christian greetings from Australia
- I am an Aussie too, albeit a Queenslander first. I live over in Chapel
Hill on the north side of Brisbane and attend the University of
Queensland (BofA- Double English major). I write novels and short
stories (particularly in the horror field) and specialise in Central
European history of the 15-1600's. I currently worship at the Brisbane
City Presbyterian church of Dr F N Lee, but unlike our PCA, have been
convinced of the need to personally swear the covenants.
Unfortunately, there is nothing like an RPNA or RPCNA congregation to
worship at near where I live, so the squables between Brother Larry
and Brother Walter seem kind of academic to me. I disagree with
Brother Larry's belief that the old covenants are dead, but would be
happy to attend a church like his. Dr Lee was in the old RPCES in the
American South back in his early days, and believes in principles of
social covenanting but not the actual British covenants. Even that
principle is a minority position in Australian Presbyterianism. We are
a long way from the restoration of a covenanted Pan-British King as
head of state either here in the commonwealth or in the three
kingdoms. But so was John Knox back in 1520's Romish Scotland, and
that changed very quickly. I hope the same will happen again soon, and
that European Christiandom as a whole will swear to the Reformation
and sign on to the old covenants as seperate kingdoms, and that the
Jews will be converted, the throne of Papal Anti-Christ overthrown and
the gospel age begin.
All the best to you,
