Not at all.

The 1689 is the biblical standard, and all the rest are sectarians. Sure!

Alan, if you do a simple study of the Acts of the Apostles, you will find not one man-made Confession as a test of orthodoxy. Rather you will find a simplicity, such as the confession of the Ethiopian, which was acceptable to the evangelist as proof positive of his genuine conversion to the Christian faith.

This is unlike the subsequent RCC, which demanded belief in the Trinity before being received into fellowship.

The "true church" is founded on much simpler principles, namely "gospel principles". Issues such as mode of baptism, which separate the 1689 Baptist Reformers and the WCF Reformers, should in no wise determine the validity of a profession.

God is not mocked, and he has his blood-bought people in many different churches with complicated man-made confessions. Don't blame the members!

But it is unbiblical to divide into 1001 sects.

Dear bro
Don't tell me you also have taken to reading posts too fast. I never condemned theological confessions.

But I can't help noticing that the folks who hold the WCF, which is a very detailed and excellent document concerning what the Bible teaches on various issues of doctrine, regard it as the criterior for testing the authenticity of a Christian's profession of faith. But...

Please note that the vast majority of those sinners 'called' of God by grace into a salvation state are, in the words of 1 Cor 1, the 'foolish' the 'weak' the 'base' the 'despised' and the 'things which are not'.

Why?

That 'no flesh should glory in his presence'.

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save THEM THAT BELIEVE. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But WE PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1 Corinthians 1:21-23 KJV

There is such a thing as the simplicity of the gospel, which many stumble at, as did the Pharisees with the man healed of blindness.

Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Acts 8:35-38 KJV

John,

Your condemnation of all theological confessions is a bit ludicrous.

Firstly, because I know personally that you confess much more than that simple declaration of the Ethiopian eunuch.

Secondly, His confession was based upon the preaching of Philip, and Luke tells us only that Philip "began at the same Scripture." It does not tell us how much or where Philip ended his preaching. He may have told him a great deal more than you or I think. (See Luke 24:27 & Romans 10:14)

However, the effect of them all should lead to this summary...

"But exactly how is swearing an act of confession and worship? When we duly swear in God's name, we confess several things about God. To begin with, we confess that God exists. Moreover, we confess several of God's attributes as revealed to us in Scripture: we testify THAT HE IS OMNIPRESENT and omniscient, that He is eternal and immutable, that He is just and true, that He is powerful and wrathful. By confessing His existence and attributes, we also confess that He is the Supreme Judge over all the earth and that we are accountable to Him for all that we do and say. Though the word of men may fail, the word of God never fails. Though men may fail, God never fails. By taking oaths in God's name, we confess God to be the ultimate arbiter of truth, and we worship the God of truth in spirit and in truth."
(David G Hagopian, on confessions)

Do you confess God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as greater spiritually than man can ever conceive and imagine? Infinite - Omnipotent - Sovereign - Almighty - Omnipresent.

Or is YOUR god less than this?

Good news!

I've just received news that prince charles attended church yesterday and looked okay, so I guess he is just having a break from posting for a while.

Phew! I was beginning to get a bit concerned about the ol' turnip. But I've no doubt he'll be back sometime to make us all larf with his royal humour.

Thank you, John. If I have a way with words, it is because, as a child, I immersed myself in the Bible and literature. I got a Marketing degree because I wanted to be able to support myself. If I was successful in marketing, it was based more on my personality than marketing skills.
Oh, I hope the church that you are going to visit will be one where you will find sweet fellowship. It is unlikely that the church as a whole would have the distinction that you mentioned and that Scripture describes that makes onlookers wonder about the relationships - "See how they love one another!" But, among a small group within the church, that could very well be said, and possibly, overall. No, I have not found such a church, but I have found some sweet relationships within certain churches.
Ah it is always a good thing when a child shows an interest in reading the Bible from an early age. It is God's grace no less, and has born fruit in your life.

This verse:

Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
1 John 5:1 KJV

Evidence of the new birth? Sure seems like it to me.

.......We probably only experience true freedom momentarily in this life........Material goods did not make me happy......Relationships are where I find much joy and sorrow.

One does need a certain amount of basic necessities to be free to pursue interests. Food deprivation would certainly have a huge impact on a person's well-being. A safe place to live, and a job that provides enough to live beyond the day to day would give one a certain measure of freedom from stress.
P.S. Your mention of the water rats made me think of Wind in the Willows. Have you read that?

Sorry to edit your post Candle Lit. I found the whole very interesting and thought provoking.

"Relationships" I think is a key word. Interaction with either God or fellow man is built into our design, and without either, man is going to be depressed.

The Christian can drink in the peace of God freely. He can 'be filled with the Spirit' (Eph 5:18). Paul the apostle proved his own words by what he joyfully endured after his conversion.

"Contentment" is the biz!

That be good news about the London sortie, Stormin. Do let us know when the assault on the devil's domain is taking place and I be sure to give prayer support and interest.

I guess the devil bothers every believer, but he especially tries to prevent the gospel being proclaimed. But as you well know, JESUS STANDS WITH US - HALLELUJAH!

Yes I appreciated all your evident hard work which you put into it. If you do another one ( ) it might be worth getting a free blogging site so you can post it all up in one go.

If you're going to be getting out and about to preach the gospel and witness to Christ among the lost, it would be great if you posted up on the evangelism forum so that you and your fellow soldiers can have some extra prayer support from those with a heart to do so. I would regard it a privilege to be involved in that sort of standing together in the gospel.

Stormin, I praise God for you bro. It's great to hear that it went well in Bracknell today. And although you are home now, the Holy Ghost is still able to speak into hearts. The word of God sure is powerful.

I will never forget Tiverton, it was a wonderful time of fellowship in the gospel, and our dear bro Lexiconis who we met on sermon audio treated us to lunch. What a special day that was, and eternity will show if we had any good effect on our fellow countrymen.

I would dearly like to get together again for some evangelism, maybe when the weather warms up. I'll e-mail you soon.

Amen! I appreciate the encouragement and especially the prayers. It went well. A few hecklers, etc. but one young man came up afterwards to talk. He was saved and going through some difficult times and needed someone to listen, give him some Scriptural encouragement and to pray with him.

Consider this:
How much different would our church meetings be if the pastor, deacons, Sunday School teachers came after fervently seeking the Lord in prayer that we might have His word to speak and especially to be able to pray with power in the Holy Ghost with any who He might bring needing His answers to our praying?
