No Other Head Of The Church

There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God.

Westminster Confession of Faith (1648) 25.6

  1. That ‘s pretty black and white! We need the Catholics and Mormons in the civil realm to protect our moral freedoms of a constitutional republic and nature’s God against the onslaught of moral confusion in our land.

    Abortion on demand, challenges to DOMA, homosexual agenda in the Boy Scouts – LORD please have mercy on this land!!

    • No question whether we should cooperate with them and others on civil matters. Reformed people discuss that under general providence or common grace.

      The question under this article is whether the Bishop of Rome is what he has claimed.

    • Michael,

      Yes. We can make common social cause with all sorts of folks. This is one of the virtues of being able to distinguish between the eternal and temporal, between that which is sacred and that which is common (shared) or between the different spheres in which God administers his sovereignty. We don’t have to reach a theological agreement with everyone with whom we make common social cause.

      Had the evangelicals, who signed ECT, made such distinctions, we might have avoided some of the problems attending ECT I and II. Here’s a post on this.

      As Christians we interpret reality differently from the way non-Christians do but despite that difference, in the providence of God, we can make common cause with them too toward ends that are of temporal value for both believers and unbelievers.
