Title: Doctrine of the Church - Built Upon the Rock


Author: Crampton, Gary TH.D. & Bacon, Richard TH.D.

There has been some controversy through the ages regarding what Christ must have intended by that statement. The Papists, in order to bolster their unscriptural elevation of the Pope to the position of "head of the church," have claimed that the rock must be the apostle Peter. Protestants and others have consistently denied that to be the meaning of the passage. Although it is not the intention of the authors to spend a considerable amount of space defending the Protestant view, given our title we should devote at least some introductory space to the subject.
