Phenomenal teaching - Thank you! Dr. Renihan, thank you so much for expounding on this great, but difficult teaching from the 1689. The way your pulled everything together and explained the Scripture and how it perfectly lines up with the description and office of the pope was mind-blowing! I have claimed to ascribe to the 1689 for the better part of a year now, but did not know this section was in there! (i'm still working on finishing reading/studying the entire confession)
But yes, fantastic teaching! I really like that you included your handout notes as well on SermonAudio so I could follow along. I have benefited greatly from your videos having to do with federalism and Baptist covenant theology as well. I was just blown away at your teaching concerning the Pope being a definitive fit for the AntiChrist! I was blown away at how perfectly he matches the Biblical description! I now fully support what the writers of the 1689 believed in this regard.
Thank you for your ministry sir, and God bless you. I will be searching through more of your sermons!

Chapter 26; OF THE CHRUCH
Paragraph 4. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the church, in whom, by the appointment of the Father, all power for the calling, institution, order or government of the church, is invested in a supreme and sovereign manner; neither can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof, but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God; whom the Lord shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.
