HOW CAN YOU PROMOTE ASCENSION DAY? YOU ARE EMBRACING EVERYTHING STILL BOUND BY ROMAN CATHOLICISM! YOU REJECT SCRIPTURE AND PROMOTE SUN WORSHIP AND PAGANISM! YOU TWIST SCRIPTURE!
We do appreciate critical feedback, but you seem to have completely misunderstood the whole point of our article celebrating the authority of Christ epitomized by the truth of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has all authority. He has ascended above every human authority. He is sitting at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. He will return to Judge the living and the dead. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
I have no idea how you can jump to the conclusions you do and accuse me of embracing “Everything that is still bound by Roman Catholicism.” You evidently know little about our mission. Have you read my book: The Greatest Century of Reformation?
We most certainly reject all the distinctive heresies of Roman Catholicism including: Prayers to the Dead, Veneration of Angels and Dead Saints, The Use of Images, The Mass, The Worship of Mary, The Doctrine of Purgatory, The Use of Latin in Worship, The Rosary, The Inquisition, The Sale of Indulgences, The Celibacy of the Priesthood, The Dogma of Transubstantiation, Confession to Priests, The Adoration of the Wafer, The Forbidding of the Cup to the Laity, Their Seven Sacraments, The Apocryphal Books added to the Bible, The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, The Doctrine of Papal Infallibility, The Assumption of the Virgin Mary, indeed we reject the papacy itself as antichrist.
This is in our constitution, and in hundreds of lectures and sermons which we have on our websites such as www.reformationsa.org and in the audio visual materials we produce.
I do not know how you can say that we reject Scripture!!! Nor how you can make such an unbelievable assertion that we promote paganism and sun worship! You are teaching as doctrines of God what are plainly not in the Scripture, but are theories of men. We continually quote the Great Commission in full. I can only assume that you have confused us with someone else. You say that you are not judging us, but you actually are. Using lots of bold and capitals with many exclamation marks to accuse us of twisting Scripture and of producing a man made religion does not make it so. Even using bold red type!
What have we actually done to excite such wrath from your side. I do not think we have actually ever met? Do we know you?
In the light of all the false religions, such as Islam, which are a clear and present danger to the church, and in the light of the pervasiveness of idolatrous false religions such as Catholicism, and the vast amount of abuse in evangelical churches, I am astounded that you should reserve such venom for such a small mission as ourselves which is sincerely seeking to be faithful to the Scriptures and to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The main thing, is to keep the main thing, the main thing. And our main priority is to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rather than attacking God’s people may I encourage you to spend more of your energy in proclaiming the Gospel and winning the lost.
Yours for the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
