In referring to Presbyterians as being Aligned with Rome we must think of this aligning in 3 distinct ways: #1.Most Presbyterians today are Adopting Old Testament Ceremonial Worship Practices. #2.Most Presbyterians today are Adopting Roman Catholic Worship Traditions. #3.Most Presbyterians today are inventing their own Traditions in Worship like Rome, while eliminating Scriptural practices. This 3 part adoption of Roman Catholic Worship to Presbyterian Worship was historically rejected by John Calvin, John Knox & all the Puritans. These men denounced this worship with all their energy, zeal, prayers, & boldness they had to give. Sadly we have men today who are either unaware of their warnings of false worship or they do not care about the way in which we worship. This ignorance is seen most clearly in Reformed Churches who claim to abide by the Regulative Principle of Worship. To Abide by the regulative principle in worship means to add nothing to our worship which is not commanded in Scripture. In failing to understand the principles of those who have gone before us most have taken a broad view of the regulative principle in making two fatal mistakes. The first mistake is they have allowed the regulative principle to allow Old Testament ceremonial worship practices [i.e. Choirs, Incense, Worship Leaders, Holy Days, Fancy Decorations, Soloists, & Musical Instruments,] to be retained in the same manner as the Roman Catholic Church has done. The Second mistake they have made is to allow worship practices in the New Testament such as the Lord’s Supper to be altered from its scriptural form. To illustrate, The Lord’s supper is commanded to be taken while sitting as Christ instituted in the New Testament rather than kneeling as Rome instituted in the 13th century. In misapplying these two principles to Presbyterian Worship our services mirror that of Rome rather than Reformed Churches & thus the title Aligned With Rome. In this book will seek to place many of the Presbyterian Worship Practices today [i.e. Celebrating Christmas, Easter, Choirs, Musical Instruments, Hymns, Images, Drama, Kneeling at communion, Sabbath Breaking, Women Deacons, Children’s Church, & Head coverings] up against Scripture & our Reformed forefathers to see their verdict on Worship. It is certain that we will come to the same conclusion as Aaron came to when he saw his two son’s “consumed by fire from heaven for offering worship that was “un-commanded” of God (Leviticus 10:1-3).How we worship is important to God



























What does Edwards have to say to our day of false worship, traditions and superstitions regarding the previous worship resources the Lord has providentially provided us?

The Nature of Reformed Worship

BACKCOVER TO THE BOOK: THE NATURE OF REFORMED WORSHIP

The Nature of Reformed Worship- Is to worship only by God's New Testament ordinances as taught in the Westminster Confession of Faith [WCF] chapter 21. Thus for worship to be acceptable to God we must not take away any New Testament ordinances [WCF ch.21], add any of Rome's reinstated O.T. Jewish worship [WCF ch's 19-20], or add any of Rome's invented superstitious worship [Westminster Larger Catechism, Q.109]. “Every addition as well as subtraction is a departure from the observance and keeping of the commandments of God, and a corruption of them” (Deut 12:32). ‘You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you’ (Deut 4:2). William Ames, The Marrow of Theology, p.280. Thus, “By all which, you see where the idolatry of worship lies. The instituting of any, though the smallest part of worship, in and by our own authority, without scripture-warrant, makes it idolatrous, as well as if we worshipped an idol” [Ex: 20:5]. The Works of John Flavel, Vol, 4, p.527.

Thus, what two types of idolatry has the Reformed Church added to her worship in 2013? First, adding Rome’s reinstated O.T. Jewish worship: Sacred places A.D. 300’s, invented new holy days- Easter A.D. 300’s & Christmas A.D. 345, choirs A.D. 300-400’s, organs-instruments A.D. 600’s, incense A.D. 600’s, vestments A.D. 600’s. Second, adding Rome’s invented superstitions: Hymns invented by heretics A.D. 200’s, first used by Rome A.D. 300’s, crosses A.D. 300’s, pictures of Jesus A.D. 700’s, kneeling at communion A.D. 1200’s.

Thus Thomas Brooks has a severe warning for those who add to [Deut 4:2, 12:32] God’s Worship with Rome’s inventions and traditions: For, “Assuredly there is a day coming when the King of kings will most severely punish all such who have embased His worship and service, by mixing human inventions and Romish traditions [Sacred places, Christmas, Easter, choirs, organs, incense, vestments, hymns, crosses, pictures of Jesus, kneeling at communion] with His holy institutions....For it is a very dangerous thing for any mortals to be adding to God's worship and word; there is a horrible curse that hangs over the heads of all such that add or take away from the blessed Scriptures. If falsifiers of coin are liable unto the civil curse of the law, how much more shall the anathema of eternal damnation be inflicted upon the corrupters of God's word and worship? ‘To them that add thereto, God will add all the plagues of this book’ -to wit, the seven last plagues- ‘and cast them into the lake of fire and brimstone, with the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet,’ Rev 19. The Works of Thomas Brooks, Vol, 5, p.430. Thus we learn, “The jealousy of God over His worship and worshippers; so that this sin of corrupting His worship will dreadfully incense His wrath,” (Lev 10:1-2). The Works of John Flavel, Vol 6, p. 229.

It is my hope that the reason the Reformed Church is in Rome’s superstitious and idolatrous worship is due to “lack of light and information,” which Anthony Burgess says may be true of godly men. Thus to help the Reformed Church come to this “light and information” I prayerfully urge you to examine the writings of the Reformers & Puritans concerning 4 aspects of worship: 1st. The O.T. Regulative Principle: James Durham, Thomas Vincent, Thomas Watson, Thomas Manton, John Bunyan & George Gillespie. 2nd. O.T. Ceremonial Worship: Jonathan Edwards & Stephen Charnock 3rd. The N.T. Regulative Principle: John Owen, Richard Sibbes, & Thomas Boston. 4th. The Dangers of False Worship: John Flavel, Thomas Brooks, Jeremiah Burroughs, Mathew Henry, John Calvin, Anthony Burgess, William Greenhill, & much more…
