Tabletalk magazine displaces Christ as head of the church

March 2001

Today's excerpt from The Horror Files is taken from the May 2000 issue of Tabletalk, the monthly magazine of Ligonier Ministries, page 22:

"Although Peter was called the apostle to the Jews and Paul the apostle to the Gentiles (Gal.2:7-8), it is Peter who first is used by Christ to take the Gospel to non-Jews. It is not hard to see why this is so. Peter is the head of the church and the apostolate...."

Comment: It seems that the Roman Catholic philosophy of Ligonier is spilling over into its ecclesiology.
