There were a host of Catholic terms and objects that have meaning with Catholicism with which I was completely unfamiliar: offices, the magisterium, mortal and venial sins, confession, penance, rosary beads, the saints and martyrs, and even, yes, Marian theology. Several groupings of Baptist churches would soon emerge, but many remained unaffiliated as community churches.

This assembly achieved various tasks whose effects are still felt today: lt adopted a Confession of Faith, modelled to a great degree upon Calvin and later named The La Rochelle Confession of Faith; it also established a Code of practice (a rule for the life of local congregations and for their relationships one to another) which would be progressively modified but which is still basically in use today - in it the system of church government is presbyterian and synodical, with authority jointly exercised by local (presbyterial) councils and by larger synods. ln contrast to what would happen in many countries where the whole Church, often under pressure from the civil ruler, went over en bloc to the Reformation, we find French Protestantism to have been composed of a variety of communities that arose from nothing, more often than not with the old parishes under Rome's authority still co-existing alongside.

The Laodicean age�no real commitment to covenants and contracts. This false belief was first espoused by John Nelson Darby in 1827. The Dutch Baptists trace their spiritual pedigree up to the same source. BOOK X, CH VI, PETER'S AUTHORITY (1st century): "But I should like that one of you, and not Peter, should answer what I have said; for it is not fitting to take words and instruction at his hand, with questions; but when he gives a deliverance on any subject, that should be held without answering again.

In the Middle Ages the Catholic Church taught that salvation was possible through “good works,” or works of righteousness, that pleased God. Consider the verse, "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and then will he render to every man according to his works." IF YOU SEND A QUESTION PLEASE BE THOUGHTFUL ENOUGH TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT. Beecher believed that a “great evangelical assimilation” was coming to the United States.

How then do we believe or not believe the next person who also claims the same inspiration? The creator of the website pointed to a verse in 1 Corinthians that, when I looked at it on the screen, I thought, that can’t actually be in the Bible, can it?!
