A Significant and Very Scary Recent Example Of Revisionism
in Church History
Presbyterian Church in America and R. C. Sproul Guilty of Spiritual Sabotage

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; and hid that shall not be known.
It's bad enough when organizations are formed and books are written contending the Holocaust never occurred. This despite eyewitness accounts by survivors and their liberators, all with extensive collaborating film footage. Not to mention the inexplicable disappearance of 6 million Jews. But when the denial and cover-up comes from the camp of orthodox professing Evangelical Christians, the incredulity is magnified one hundred fold.
In December, 1973, the First General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America met in Birmingham, Alabama, to adopt the classic Westminster Confession of Faith, with its Larger and Shorter Catechisms as the doctrinal standards of the Church.
"The Presbyterian Church in America received the same Confession and Catechisms as those that were adopted by the first Presbyterian Assembly of 1789, with two minor exceptions, namely, the deletion of strictures against marrying one's wife's kindred, and the reference to the Pope as the antichrist.
By a single deliberate stroke of the pen, the arch enemy of Christ and His saints, declared so from Genesis through Revelation, has now been declared, through the wicked councils of men, to be the enemy no more. The implications of this futile and wicked action are manifold and frightening. The PCA has declared it is wiser than God, who has been in error for centuries. God has lied for centuries, as has His people. The martyrs died senselessly for a lie. Roman Catholicism and her Beast are really not so bad. The Beast has been telling the truth all along: he is not the Antichrist, look for another. Thus, the true Christians killed by the Church of Rome were heretics after all. The sheep of the PCA fold no longer need be warned of the Man of Sin, the son of perdition. Does the reader shiver at the power of the deceivableness of unrighteousness, this mystery of iniquity? Sleep on, drunken prophets, sleep on. Believe the delusion. But know this:
"The elect shall stand steadfast and safe from all these mischiefs."
