Rome and the Second Commandment

It has recently come to our attention that there have been several ministers from conservative Presbyterian churches, who have gone into the Roman Catholic Church or into the Greek Orthodox Church. It seems irrational for anyone who is knowledgeable of the Reformation and the Reformed Faith wanting to go to Rome.

The Reformation began with the rediscovery of the Bible by the Reformers. They then rediscovered the Gospel of the Bible, namely, justification by faith alone. For one to abandon this understanding of the Gospel for the perverted message of Rome defies understanding. For a person to make such a move indicates that he has never embraced Jesus Christ as He is presented in the Gospel as taught in the books of Romans and Galatians.
