For the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, closing down their website once a week is a sign of adherence to one of the dearest dogmas, the Holy Sabbath.
“This site is closed today in observance of the Lord’s day” – this is what their webpage says every Saturday. They clearly reject the Orthodox view of a renewed Creation, which established a new Holy Day (Sunday) of rest and worship.
This Free Presbytherian Sabbath is nothing but an idol. So is their Bible, and idols are also the gang of much appreciated Scottish reformers and their heritage:
“This priceless heritage is not ours without great cost. It was handed to us at the expense of much labour, sweat and blood.
To see the truth of this we do not need to go beyond our native land. Who has not heard of John Knox, George Wishart, Andrew Melville, and Alexander Henderson and a host of others too numerous to be mentioned?
Their life and their struggles on behalf of true religion [?!?!?!] is bound up with the history of Scotland in such a way that no one can read the history of our native land without realising the important part they played in handing us our religious heritage.”
I wonder what the epithete ‘free’ means, apart from signifying ‘liberation’ from the obnoxious Roman Catholic Church of the early 1500s?
Of Calvinist descent, iconoclastic, condemning the celebration of Christmas, this so-called church is ‘free’ from most of the ties that the Orthodox Church maintains to the Holy Apostles, and ultimately to its Founder, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The birth of contemporary British humanism can be traced back to the birth of such self-proclaimed ‘free churches’. It all started with such twisted perceptions of God’s Revelation, and we can witness the results 500 years later, and almost a millennium after 1054/1066!
It’s no wonder that alternative families, abortions, euthanasia, genetic manipulation, and repression of Christianity, founded on a tragic denaturation of human nature, are made possible and cherished as humanist values of paramount importance in today’s Great Britain.
