You will recall that the Fellowship began in early 2011 and was revealed by the release of a "White Paper" which diagnosed serious problems within the Presbyterian Church (USA), going so far as to call the denomination "deathly ill."

On matters which are not related to human sexuality, the Roman Catholic Church tends to be far more liberal than conservative Protestant denominations. God's other attributes such as love, justice, mercy and grace became irrelevant so long as sovereignty reigned. Calvin never taught explicitly that men have a "right" to revolution, but it is implied. Uncertainty about salvation, according to Weber, had the psychological effect of producing a single-minded search for certainty.
