The Return to Rome

I was shocked, angered, saddened, and disillusioned to hear recently that two friends of mine--one a minister and the other an elder in the Presbyterian Church in America--had renounced Protestantism and had joined the Roman Catholic Church. It grieved me to hear that they had abandoned the Bride of Christ and committed adultery with "the whore of Babylon," that they had left Christ and joined themselves with an antichrist. You can imagine what this did to their congregation. I still find it hard to believe, although they are not the only ones who have left presbyterian and episcopal churches in recent years to return to Rome. There appears a small trend, which we should be aware of and concerned about. The one thing most of these people have in common is that they have been dominated by the influence of a dwindling group in Tyler, Texas, who refer to themselves as reformed catholics."
