[Covenanted Reformation] Re: Welcome, wayward Covenanters....
Private actions warrant private discussions: these are public acts.
It is clearly a duty to publicly protest unlawful public acts and
say, "not in our name." Not only are these acts not a Reformed or
Presbyterian, they are not even biblical Christianity: these are
further acts of tyranny and oppression done under color of law.
They are to be opposed.
It appears from the public record that the leadership sincerely
believe they are doing the right thing, but I believe they are in
serious error and doing an incredible amount of damage, even if

I just recently joined this group, and I have no idea what anyone is talking about. I was expecting a list on covenantal theology. Can someone explain what you are talking about? Maybe I need to be somewhere else.

unexpectedly. It's all taking place out of context for me too.
- Sorry about this, Shawn.
This is a place where we can discuss covenantal theology. If you have
a topic in mind, let us know.
What's going on here lately is that a church group calling themselves
the Reformed Presbytery of North America (General Meeting), proporting
to be the faithful maintainers of the traditions of the Covenanters
(Reformed Presbyterians), has recently expelled quite a few members
(10 in one shot, by my count), excommunicating them, for their
unwillingness to swear an oath affirming the lawful authority of the
one teaching elder (in the US) and their 2 ruling elders (in Canada)
to rule together as a session that has authority not over one local
church, but over several bodies of people (called societies) under
their inspection in various places throughout the US and Canada.
Some of us who identify with the Covenanters/Reformed Presbyterians,
but are not members of this group, felt the need to respond to this
public act by publically testifying against it, and by reaching out
our hands of fellowship to those who have been put out of their church.
I hope this helps, and I apologize for the delayed response.
