EPISCOPALIAN CHURCH VS. THE BIBLE
There is much controversy now about the Episcopal Church. If you look in your Bible, it is not there at all because it did not have its beginning until 1531 A.D., 1500 years too late to be Christ’s church. Look at these differences:
1. One bishop rules over several churches in a “Diocesan Episcopacy.” In the Bible, there were always several bishops (elders) in each independent congregation (Titusi :5-7; Acts 20:17, 28).
2. The “Apostles’ Creed’ is to be obeyed by Episcopalians. This creed is not in the Bible and was not written by the apostles. The true church obeyed only Christ’s word (2 John 9-11; 2 Tim 3:16-17).
3. Episcopalian parents make promises for their infants when they are baptized. In the Bible, there is no infant baptism (sprinkling), but people are first taught then make their own decisions about faith and baptism (immersion. Mat. 28:18-20).
4. Episcopalians say infants are born guilty of inherited sin. In Christ’s true church, sin cannot be inherited or transferred from one person to another (James 1:14-15) and children are a pure gift from God who later sin (Isa 59:2; Matt. 18:3,10).
