First of all, there is a common conception, especially in the RPCNA, that the doctrine of Christ's mediatorial kingship is distinctive to the Reformed Presbyterian Church and is even a uniquely RP contribution to the wider corpus of Reformed theology.
Pockras, is that the doctrine of Christ's mediatorial kingship is a doctrine common to Reformed theology and is not at all distinctive to the RPCNA.
The short answer is that what has been distinctive to the RPCNA is not any doctrine about Christ (i.e., mediatorial kingship), but is a package of doctrines that amount to a particular political theory about the state and Christian citizenship.
