When Rome Calls: Reformers Running Back To The Roman Catholic Church

"As to your concern whether contemplative is being taught at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS, the sad truth is the seminary is promoting contemplative spirituality. Here are a few links from their site to show this. Incidentally, Reformed Theological Seminary has several campuses, and it appears that the campuses are essentially teaching and promoting the same things. Based on our findings, we have added Reformed Theological Seminary to our “Contemplative Colleges” list." ~Lighthouse Blog

For the examples of Contemplative Spirituality being taught at RTS go here.

So much for Scripture alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone....

The compromise begins by considering the Roman Catholic Church to ever have been a legitimate church.  This is why Reformed theology is wrong: its man-centered and leads to increasing compromise and anti-biblical practices.  The creeds and confessions, so often upheld as the shield of the faith for Reformers, have historically done little to keep error at bay. We only have Scripture as our Sword of the Spirit. It alone is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword. It alone is God-breathed:

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17  so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Scripture is the mind of Christ, as it were. It is our plumbline, our test for all things, our anchor.

The spirit of compromise is everywhere and its sad, because it reveals a treacherous heart against the King of kings and Lord of lords.
