Re: Continuous Singing
If you're asking about the RPCNA, the original Westminster Confession
of Faith is part of our constitution. You can find the RP
constitution at the denominational website,
http://reformedpresbyterian.org/. You'll notice that the Reformed
Presbyterian Testimony, which is meant to explain and apply the WCF,
runs alongside it. Unfortunately, there are places where the RP
Testimony actually contradicts the WCF. The only two places that
come to mind are in chapter 23:3, where the Testimony states, "We
reject the portion of paragraph 3 after the colon." This has to do
with magistrates calling Synods and providing that everything
transacted be according to the mind of God. The Testimony also
rejects the last sentence of chapter 24:4, which forbids marriage to
any relative of one's spouse.
It should be noted, though, that there are ministers and elders in
the denomination who hold to the original WCF without exception.
