No it is the church of Anti-Christ! Study the Bible and history for yourselves. 

  Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of 
her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues

If you are a Roman Catholic, please understand that this site is not meant to offend you in any way. This site is dedicated to examining the truth, all truth, and compare it to the Bible. No matter who it is or what group is proclaiming truth, we know that the Bible is the Word of God and that no truth from God will contradict it. I urge you to examine what is here on this site and see if what is being taught here is true. If you do, you would be doing precisely what the Bible commands: to examine all things (1 Thess. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:15; 2 Tim. 2:15; Acts 17:11; Jude 3). Since the Catholic Church holds the Bible to be the word of God, I am putting Catholic doctrine to the biblical test.

 

In these days of apostasy, the body of Christ needs to boldly and courageously proclaim the whole counsel of God and expose as error everything that opposes it. May God give all His servants the grace, power, discernment and courage to be contenders for the faith.

                                    THE POPE PRAYS TO MARY

               Question: Should we pray to Mary and the "saints"?

                                                ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

                                                                                                         

To be blunt, when a person prays to Mary or any of the "saints" they are praying to the dead, which is necromancy. And according to the Doubleday dictionary, (Doubleday and Company, Inc. 1975) necromancy is defined as: "Divination by means of communication with the dead. Black magic; sorcery." By definition, seeking communication with the dead is equated with sorcery and black magic, and is an abomination before God.

God plainly states  if the living try to communicate with the dead, they communicate with familiar spirits, which is necromancy. The dead cannot communicate with us, neither can we communicate with them. And any such attempts to communicate with the dead is direct disobedience to God's commandment.

Scripture is abundantly clear on this issue. The dead do not communicate with the living, nor are the living to try communicate with the dead. Any such attempts by the living to do so is in direct disobedience to God.

And if you have prayed to Mary or the "saints", please repent before the Lord, confess your sins of necromancy and ignorance to Him. He is faithful and will forgive you. Ask Him to also cleanse and close any doorways into your spirit that Satan has gained access to by this sin. Then bind any demons in your life who have entered because of sin, and cast them out.  

                  

               THE SINFUL WORSHIP OF MARY

The place bestowed to Mary in the Roman Catholic Church is not Scriptural, rather Satanic - the Woman who rides the beast in Revelations is this church with her abominable perversion of the figure Mary. It cannot be denied that during the last one hundred years, veneration of Mary has dramatically increased. Note in the historical chart given later in this article that the exaltation of Mary and the term "Mother of God," became official Catholic dogma in 431 AD with prayers to her proclaimed in 600 AD. Note also that the "Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary" was not proclaimed until 1854 AD; her "Assumption" not until 1950 AD; and her title "Mother of the Church" not until 1965 AD.

 

Some Roman Catholic observers believe it may not be much longer until Mary is officially proclaimed "Co-redemptrix with Christ." In fact, the premier issue of the Roman Catholic publication Catholic Heritage displayed a front page with the title: "Mary, Mother of the Church." In a Question and Answer column the question is asked, "At the foot of the cross, Mary shared in the mystery of the passion. True or False. Answer: True. Mary united her sorrows to those of her Son. The sorrowful and immaculate heart of Mary bled with her Son for all of mankind. For this reason, we invoke her under the title of Co-redemptrix." 


Mary was NOT immaculately conceived, nor was she perfect. She was a SINNER! Her spirit is in heaven along with all the dead saints, but her body awaits the 2nd coming of Christ!

 

 

 

 

                                                                             Rosary Beads

                                                                                                  

 Rosary: "This is the name of both a devotion and the chain of beads used for the counting the prayers. As a devotion, the Rosary arose in the fifteenth century and became very popular. It was begun by a Dominican preacher, Alan de Rupe(D. 1475), in northern France and Flanders. Belief that the devotion was revealed to St. Dominic was based chiefly on a report of a vision of de Rupe. The devotion is directed to the Blessed Mother and has been highly indulgenced by the Church.  the person praying is to meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, fifteen in all (cf. Mysteries of the Rosary). The Catholic Encyclopaedia, by Robert C. Broderick, Thomas Nelson, Inc., Publishers, Nashville, New York, 1976, p. 529.   

The rosary, however, is not an invention of the Papacy. It is of the highest antiquity, and almost universally found among Pagan nations. The rosary was used as a sacred instrument among the ancient Mexicans. It is commonly employed among the Brahmins of Hindustan; and in the Hindu sacred books reference is made to it again and again. Thus, in an account of the death of Sati, the wife of Shiva, we find the rosary introduced: "On hearing of this event, Shiva fainted from grief; then, having recovered, he hastened to the banks of the river of heaven, where he beheld lying the body of his beloved Sati, arrayed in white garments, HOLDING A ROSARY IN HER HAND, AND GLOWING WITH SPLENDOUR, BRIGHT AS BURNISHED GOLD." In Tibet it has been used from time immemorial, and among all the millions in the East that adhere to the Buddhist faith. The following, from Sir John F. Davis, will show how it is employed in China: "From the Tartar religion of the Lamas, the rosary of 108 beads has become a part of the ceremonial dress attached to the nine grades of official rank. It consists of a necklace of stones and coral, nearly as large as a pigeon's egg, descending to the waist, and distinguished by various beads, according to the quality of the wearer. There is a small rosary of eighteen beads, of inferior size, with which the bonzes count their prayers and ejaculations exactly as in the Romish ritual. The laity in China sometimes wear this at the wrist, perfumed with musk, and give it the name of Heang-choo, or fragrant beads." In Asiatic Greece the rosary was commonly used, as may be seen from the image of the Ephesian Diana. In Pagan Rome the same appears to have been the case. The necklaces which the Roman ladies wore were not merely ornamental bands about the neck, but hung down the breast, just as the modern rosaries do; and the name by which they were called indicates the use to which they were applied. "Monile," the ordinary word for a necklace, can have no other meaning than that of a "Remembrancer." The Two Babylons, Alexander Hislop, 2nd ed., 1959, Loizeaux Brothers, Neptune, New Jersey, pp. 187,188, (by permission).

 The Lord, as we clearly saw in Matthew 6:5-8, in the first chapter, forbids us to pray in a repetitious manner, for it is the way the heathen worshipped and prayed to their idols. The Catholic Church says this devotion was introduced in the fifteenth century by a vision, however, this heathen devotion can be traced to the ancient Sun Worshippers. 

"If you haven't met the devil face to face - Maybe you're going the same way he is."

In order to get control of the king  and the U.S. Government the Vatican sent their system on vacation for the past 40 years....At Vatican Council II, all the deeply held dogmas were dismissed  put on hold, during this momentous time. Here is a brief list of some of the major changes, making way for the one world church.

Pre-Vatican Council II

Post Vatican Council II

There is no salvation outside the "church" of Rome. All religions will eventually lead to God if your are sincere....Mother Teresa encouraged Hindus to be "good" Hindus, Muslims to be "good" Muslims etc., etc.
Protestants are "heretics." Protestants are "separated brethren."
Mass in Latin. Mass in English.
Roman Catholics forbidden to marry outside their religion. Marriage with anybody is O.K.
Evolution is a fable....In 1950, Pope Pius XII issued an Encyclical condemning evolution as a fable!! Evolution is true.
Cremation is forbidden. Cremation is O.K.
Mariolity and Fatima is encouraged. Fatima is downplayed.
Prayer to the saints is encouraged. Most of the saints are demoted including the Great St. Patrick.

 

   ALL ROADS LEAD TO GOD 

This is a lie from the pit of hell

                                                       

                                                                                                              

Pope John Paul II by kissing the Koran (Muslim holy book containing antiCatholic doctrine) and joining in prayer with Mohammedans – who do not believe in the most holy trinity or in the divinity of Jesus – and with Hindus, Buddhists and various pagan sects is in essence saying that the God traditionally believed in by Catholics was not incarnate and in effect is no different than any other belief in a god or gods. The effect is at least a variant of the belief condemned by two popes and by Vatican Council I called "pantheism"  

PAGAN SUN WORSHIP AND CATHOLICISM THE MONSTRANCE and the WAFER GOD

Here is Pope John Paul II holding what is called a Monstrance or Ostensorium. It is used to display a round wafer of bread, called the host, which is used in what is called the Mass, Lord's Supper, Communion or Eucharistic meal. The Catholic believes this wafer of bread turns into the actual body of Christ when consecrated during the Mass. 

This is the general sunburst pattern used to symbolize the host, the supposed "true body" of Christ. This design has also been adopted by the Jesuits as their symbol. The IHS is thought by some to represent the first letters of each word in the Latin phrase Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus Saviour of Men), although according to the Catholics themselves they actually represent the first three letters of the name "Jesus" in Greek .(spelled in Greek iota-eta-sigma-omicron-upsilon-sigma). The pagan though, would quickly see the same sun disk symbol associated with many pagan deities of Egypt, among them Isis, Horus, and Seb. In Egyptian mythology Seb (Geb) was the father of the goddess Isis (Aset), the mother and protectress of her divine son Horus (Harpocrates). Horus (the younger) is frequently depicted on Egyptian temples as a winged sun disk, representing the rays of the rising sun.

 

Deu 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
Deu 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and inquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:
Deu 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

"If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere."

Catholic Church Prohibit Bible Reading

Still think your in the right church ?

The Council of Trent (1545-1564) placed the Bible on its list of prohibited books, and forbade any person to read the Bible without a license from a Roman Catholic bishop or inquisitor. The Council added these words: "That if any one shall dare to read or keep in his possession that book, without such a license, he shall not receive absolution till he has given it up to his ordinary."

Rome's attempt to keep the Bible from men has continued to recent times. Pope Pius VII (1800-1823) denounced the Bible Society and expressed shock at the circulation of the Scriptures. Pius VII said, "It is evidence from experience, that the holy Scriptures, when circulated in the vulgar tongue, have, through the temerity of men, produced more harm than benefit." Pope Leo XII called the Protestant Bible the "Gospel of the Devil" in an encyclical letter of 1824. Pope Gregory XVI (1831-1846) railed "against the publication, distribution, reading, and possession of books of the holy Scriptures translated into the vulgar tongue."

Pope Leo XII, in January 1850, condemned the Bible Societies and admitted the fact that the distribution of Scripture has "long been condemned by the holy chair

The Near Fatal Wounding of a King

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

                

Pope John Paul II was seriously wounded May 13th, 1981 in an attempted assassination in St. Peter's square, he was shot twice with a 9mm pistol and seriously wounded in the abdomen, right arm and left hand, but he recovered after two operations and two and a half months in hospital. That it was a nearly fatal wounding is attested to by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State, and even the Pope himself:

He [John Paul II] had been very close to death, and he himself explained his survival in the following words: “... it was a mother's [Mary's] hand that guided the bullet's path and in his throes the Pope halted at the threshold of death”

Who did the pope give the glory to? God no, Jesus no, The Holy Spirit no. He give the glory to a dead women, Mary, 

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of 
her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues

                             

 

          Were These "Holy Fathers" Really Holy??

             Have a read of this, then go and tell the pope your leaving.

Below is a partial list of popes documenting the crimes committed by these so-called "vicars" of Christ. Although not every pope is guilty of committing such heinous crimes, nonetheless they must be somewhat condoned, since they are not condemned, for even a "sinful pope" is still considered a member of the church and is to be obeyed. Should they not have been excommunicated???
If we all were to believe all that came from the lips of these so-called infallible "Holy Fathers", then we all should discard the truth that the earth revolves around the sun, for wasn't Galileo, under severe torture, forced to recant the truth that he himself discovered??? Of course, the RCC recently ADMITTED their error. What? The infallible admitted their fallibility????? Of course, when the light of truth is shined in it's strength, error possesses no other choice but to submit to truth. And so will it be in the final analysis: All will bow their knee to Christ, the King of Kings - including the unsaved wicked of earth, and satan and the fallen angels that joined with him in rebellion against God.

                            


1. Pope Sergius III (904 - 911) obtained his office by murder. He fathered several illegitimate children by Marozia, who assassinated Pope Leo VI (928 - 929), and put her own teenage son (John XI) as Pope.

2. Pope John XII (955 - 964) is described in the Catholic encyclopaedia as a coarse, immoral man. The Catholic collection of the lives of the Popes, the "Liber Pontificalis" said: "He spent his entire life in adultery." Catholic bishop Luitprand states that "he had no respect for single girls, married woman or widows - they were sure to be defiled by him."

3.Pope Boniface VII (984 - 985), John XII and Leo VIII were described by the Bishop of Orleans as "monsters of guilt, reeking in blood and filth."

4. Pope John XV (985 - 996) split the churches finances among his relatives and was described as "covetous of filthy lucre and corrupt in all his acts."

5. Pope Benedict IX (1033 - 1045) committed murders and adulteries in broad daylight, robbed pilgrims, and was regarded as a hideous criminal. The people drove him out of Rome: The Catholic encyclopaedia says, "He was a disgrace to the chair of Peter."

6. Pope Innocent III (1198 - 1216) promoted the Inquisition, surpassing all his predecessors in killing over one million people.

7. Pope Boniface VIII (1294 - 1303). The Catholic encyclopedia states "Scarcely any possible crime was omitted - heresy, gross and unnatural immorality, idolatry, magic, simony ... his whole pontificate was one record of evil." Dante visited Rome and described the Vatican as a "sewer of corruption" and assigned Boniface VII, Nicholas III and Clement V to the "lowest parts of hell." He proposed to be an atheist and in 1302 issued the "Unum Sanctum" officially declaring the Roman Catholic church as the only true church, outside of which on one can be saved.

8. Pope John XXII (1410 - 1415) was accused by 37 clergy witnesses of fornication, adultery, incest, sodomy, simony, theft and murder. It was proved by a legion of witnesses that he had seduced and violated 300 nuns. He kept a harem at Boulogne of 200 girls. He was publicly called the devil incarnate. He has been called the most depraved criminal who ever sat on the papal throne.

9. Pope Pius II (1458 - 1464) fathered many illegitimate children and taught others to do likewise.

10. Pope Paul II (1464 - 1471) maintained a house full of concubines.

11. Pope Sixtus IV (1471 - 1484) financed his wars by selling church offices to the highest bidders.

12. Pope Innocent VII (1484 - 1492) fathered 16 illegitimate children by various women.

13. Pope Alexander VI (1492 - 1503) committed incest with his two sisters and daughter. On October 31, 1501 he conducted the worst ever sex orgy in the Vatican.

14. Pope Paul III (1534 - 1549) as a cardinal fathered three sons and a daughter and sought advice from astrologers.

15. Pope Leo X (1513 - 1521) the Catholic encyclopaedia says "was possessed by an insatiable love of pleasure, revelry and carousing. Luther visited Rome and said: "No one can imagine what sins and infamous actions are committed in Rome." A saying was: "If there is a hell, Rome is built over it."

16. Pope Joan was a female pope whose name was changed later to Pope Zacharias. Luther, on visiting Rome reported her statue in a back street, and John Huss referred to her in his defence as the Council of Constance and this went unchallenged. She died in childbirth while in a public procession.

17. Pope Stephen VI (896 - 897) brought the dead body of former Pope Formosus (891 - 897) to trial, hacked off his decaying finger and had him dragged through the streets of Rome and thrown into the Tiber river.

18. Pope Eugene IV (1431 - 1447) condemned Joan of Arc to be burned alive as a witch, but Pope Benedict IV (1919) declared her a saint.

19. The "Great Schism" of 1378 lasted 50 years, where Italian and French popes cursed each other. Is this the same morally pure church that Christ left to preach the gospel? When confronted with such evil papal history, the Catholic church, which claims "infallibility", teaches that "A sinful pope ... remains a member of the church, and ... from whom we may not withdraw obedience." Catholic encyclopaedia Volume 4 page 435.

20. Pope Alexander III decreed in 1170 that wills had to be made in front of a priest, or excommunication (cutting off from church and sentence to hell) would result.

                                                                                                            
Jesus said in Matthew 7:18, 20
"A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit ... by their fruits ye shall know them."

These are the results of sinful man taking on a position that was not given by God. The popes set themselves up as lords over God's flock. God's Word says:

1 Peter 5:3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

Instead, they have made themselves an example of evil in the which this institution has much to be ashamed over.

Just another proof in a lengthy line of proof-positives that the papacy is NOT of God Almighty.

           Delete a commandment and still have ten?

Some man might ask me, "If the Catholic religion deletes a commandment how do they still come up with ten commandments?

Let's compare the Catholic ten commandments to the real ten commandments from the good ol' King James Bible, that pillar of doctrinal truth (God loves the truth, you know). I'll let you take a look first (see if you can figure it out) and then explain...

The Catholic Deception* The King James Bible
First Commandment

I, the LORD, am your God...You shall not have other gods besides me.

First Commandment

I am the LORD thy God...Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Second Commandment

You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain.

Second Commandment

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them.

Third Commandment

Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.

Third Commandment

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.

Fourth Commandment

Honour your father and your mother.

Fourth Commandment

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Fifth Commandment

You shall not kill.

Fifth Commandment

Honour thy father and thy mother.

Sixth Commandment

You shall not commit adultery.

Sixth Commandment

Thou shalt not kill.

Seventh Commandment

You shall not steal.

Seventh Commandment

Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Eighth Commandment

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.

Eighth Commandment

Thou shalt not steal.

Ninth Commandment

You shall not covet your neighbour's wife.

Ninth Commandment

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Tenth Commandment

You shall not covet your neighbour's house.

Tenth Commandment

Thou shalt not covet.

 

                                Did you see it?

The Catholic religion deletes the second commandment and makes the 10th commandment into two. If you follow them all the way down from the second commandment you'll see the Catholic religion is always one ahead of the King James. Finally at the tenth commandment they break it into two and make it the 9th and 10th commandments. What deception! What deceit! What guile! I tell no lies here--just get out the Bible and compare. They even corrupt their own Bible by deleting the 2nd commandment!

You see the reason the Catholic religion killed people with Bibles is 'cause their deception is just too easy to see in light of God's word. Just a little more mumbo-jumbo gumbo for your consideration...

                                  

 

                                                            THE BENT CROSS

                                                          

                                          THE TWISTED CROSS

This emaciated Jesus hanging pathetically from this curved cross is called the "Twisted Cross". This sinister symbol was created by Satanists in the Sixth Century as a caricature of the Traditional Crucifix. But, very soon, this Twisted, or Bent, Cross became one of the Satanist's symbol of Mark of the Beast. This Satanic symbol was revived by Vatican Two, albeit in great secret. Yet, very soon, the Pope of that time, Paul VI, suddenly began using this Crucifix in public ceremonies, without any publicity or fanfare!! "Yet not only Paul VI, but his successors, the two John- Pauls carried that object and held it up to be revered by crowds, who had not the slightest idea that it stood for anti-Christ."

        

                                   THE ONLY UNCHANGED CHURCH?

 

Furthermore, the long-held claim that the Roman Catholic Church was the only unchangeable church is not supported by church history - not even Roman Catholic history. How sad to realize that this false claim influenced so many to join or to stay in this false church, which actually is the product of centuries of changes. Most of these changes resulted from the Roman Catholic Church's yielding to pagan/heathen customs and practices that were subsequently incorporated into Roman Catholic teachings and worship, most notably by Constantine. The following is a partial list of heathen, unscriptural practices that became a part of Roman Catholic dogma over a period of seventeen centuries. Some of the dates given are approximate. In many cases, these heresies were even debated for years before being given the status of required beliefs. Note that most of these beliefs and practices are expressly forbidden by Scripture:

All these absolutely blatant heresies continue to be practiced by millions of Catholics around the world. The urgent need today is for Roman Catholics, as well as all who claim to be Christians, to examine their own beliefs and the teachings of their churches by the only sure standard - the Bible.

 

Whatever contradicts, adds to or subtracts from the sixty-six books of the Old and the New Testaments, is error, no matter how many may cling to it.

 

Roman Catholics who read the Bible will soon discover that many Catholic teachings and practices are specifically forbidden by Jesus Christ Himself. Note carefully the following warnings given by the Lord Jesus Christ to the religious leaders of His day concerning vain worship, vain tradition and vain repetitions. All of these are particularly applicable to Roman Catholicism today.  

 

Vain Worship - In Matthew 15:8-9, Jesus said, "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." All worship is indeed vain when it is based upon the commandments of men rather than the Word of God.

                                       

                                The Seven Names Of Blasphemy

The Biblical definition of blasphemy is for a mere mortal man to take on the attributes of God Almighty and to direct the worship thereof away from Him. Leaders and dignitaries of the Roman Catholic church take names for themselves that are reserved to God, the Lord Jesus Christ:


1. Pontifix Maximus is a papal title meaning in Latin "chief bridge maker" between earth and heaven. However, Jesus Christ is the only One who can claim this title because "no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6. This was a title of the Roman Caesars and of the Roman Emperors of paganism, thus showing how modern Roman Catholicism is of pagan origin. Pagan to the bone!


2. Holy Father is a title the pope claims for himself. However, this title occurs only once in the Bible, and used when Jesus addresses His Heavenly Father in John 17:11 in His great prayer before His betrayal, arrest and crucifixion. It is blasphemy for any man to claim this title for himself. It belongs only to God, the Father.

3. Father is a title that every Roman Catholic priest claims for himself and expects to be called. Jesus warns in Matthew 23:9 "Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father which is in heaven." The catholic priest is NOT anyone's spiritual father.

4. Monsignor This means "my Lord", and this clearly is a title belonging only to God, The Lord Jesus Christ. This is another name of blasphemy that Catholicism takes from God.

5. "God himself on earth" is a title found in the various catholic articles.

6."Mother of God" - Title given to Mary. Mary was the mother of Jesus Christ's humanity, but not the mother of Jesus Christ's divinity. Jesus is Mary's creator. Hence this may also come under the umbrella of blasphemy, for it diverts total worship from the Lord Jesus Christ. This title also puts Mary before God. God has no mother. God has always existed. Other Blasphemous titles given to Mary are Queen of Heaven, the Gate of Heaven, our life, Mother of Grace, Mother of Mercy.
Heaven has no Queen, only the King who is Christ. Christ is the Door, the Life etc. For Mary to hear all Catholic prayers she would need to have the omniscient powers of God. This is indeed blasphemy!

                                        
Is this the church of Jesus Christ? 

No it is the church of AntiChrist! Study the Bible and history for yourselves and make your own determination. It will lead to but one conclusion.

THE MARK of the BEAST

There is nothing significant about the sign of the "papal keys". This article will reveal to you the name of the blasphemous religious system that will bear the name of the antichrist. Catholic Infant Baptism is said to leave a permanent mark on your souls: “Impression of a Character on the Soul "Finally, baptism, once validly conferred, can never be repeated. The Fathers (St. Ambrose, Chrysostom, and others) so understand the words of St, Paul (Heb., vi, 4), and this has been the constant teaching of the Church both Eastern and Western from the earliest times. On this account, baptism is said to impress an ineffaceable character on the soul, which the Tridentine Fathers call a spiritual and indelible mark."

 

Revelation 13:16-18 "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."  

"Here is wisdom ('Here is scope for ingenuity' -- Weymouth) let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred and three score and six" -- Rev. 13:18

From the second century A.D. onwards, the interpretation "LATEINOS" has been given, because the numerical values of the letters add to 666. This identification was given by Irenaeus, the disciple of Polycarp (born A.D. 70) who was contemporary with the apostle John.

L A T E I N O S    
30 1 300 5 10 50 70 200 = 666

The official name or title of the popes is "Vicar of the Son of God" -- 'Vicarius Filii Dei'

V I C A R I U S   F I L I I   D E I    
5 1 100 0 0 1 5 0   0 1 50 1 1   500 0 1 = 666

The Hebrew word for this power is 'ROMIITH' -- the Hebrew value being:

R O M I I TH    
200 6 40 10 10 400 = 666

The official signature of the Pope is "DUX CLERI" which means "High or Chief Priest." Being Latin this adds to:

D U X   C L E R I    
500 5 10   100 50 0 0 1 = 666

Thus, every time the Pope of Rome officially signs a document, he writes the Latin equivalent of the number 666.

                                                                      

John Paul II has recently affirmed the Papal title, "Vicarius Filii Dei"-- The Vicar of the Son of the God. This a blasphemous title. Christ does not need a vicar, and Heaven has not so designated any man. Catholic sources have affirmed that the Pope has been designated with the title, "Vicarius Filii Dei" and one source even says it is etched in the Papal mitre. The numerical equivalent of this Latin title, using Roman numerals known to most school children, is 666. 

Quotes from the Protestant Reformers:

 

Martin Luther: We are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.

John Calvin said of the pope,I deny him to be the vicar of Christ, who, in furiously persecuting the gospel, demonstrates by his conduct that he is Antichrist.

John Knox: As for your Roman Church...I no more doubt that it is the synagogue of Satan.

John Wyclif: Of the pope, he said: “Why is it necessary in unbelief to look for another Antichrist.”  

                                  

         Every Reformer, without exception, spoke of the papacy as Antichrist 

Arnulf Bishop of Orleans (Roman Catholic)
"deplored the roman popes as "monsters of guilt" and declared in a council called by the King of France in 991ad that the pontiff, clad in purple and gold, was, "Antichrist, sitting in the temple of God, and showing himself as God" -Phillip Schaff, History of the Christian church, 8 vols., reprint of the 3d (1910)ed. (Grand Rapids Mich.: Wm. B Eerdmans Publishing Co., n.d.)

Eberhard II, archbishop of Salzburg (Roman Catholic)
"stated at a synod of bishops held at Regensburg in 1240 (some scholars say 1241) that the people of his day were "accustomed" to calling the pope antichrist." -LeRoy Edwin Froom, The Prophetic Faith of our Fathers, 4 vols. (Wash DC: Review and Herald publishing assc, 1950-1954)

John Wycliffe
"When the western church was divided for about 40 years between two rival popes, one in Rome and the other in Avigon, France, each pope called the other pope antichrist - and John Wycliffe is reputed to have regarded them as both being right: "two halves of Antichrist, making up the perfect Man of Sin between them." -Ibid

Martin Luther (Lutheran) 
"We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist...personally I declare that I owe the Pope no other obedience than that to Antichrist."  (Aug. 18, 1520) Taken from The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 2., pg. 121 by Froom.  (In response to a papal bull [official decree]): "I despise and attack it, as impious, false... It is Christ Himself who is condemned therein... I rejoice in having to bear such ills for the best of causes. Already I feel greater liberty in my heart; for at last I know that the pope is antichrist, and that his throne is that of Satan himself." --D'Aubigné, b.6, ch. 9. 

Cotton Mather (Congregational Theologian) 
"The oracles of God foretold the rising of an Antichrist in the Christian Church: and in the Pope of Rome, all the characteristics of that Antichrist are so marvelously answered that if any who read the Scriptures do not see it, there is a marvelous blindness upon them."  Taken from The Fall of Babylon by Cotton Mather in Froom's book, The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 3, pg. 113. 

John Wesley (Methodist) 
Speaking of the Papacy he said, "He is in an emphatical sense, the Man of Sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure. And he is, too, properly styled the Son of Perdition, as he has caused the death of numberless multitudes, both of his opposers and followers... He it is...that exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped...claiming the highest power, and highest honour...claiming the prerogatives which belong to God alone."  Taken from Antichrist and His Ten Kingdoms by John Wesley, pg. 110. 

Ellen G. White: Seven Day Adventists
"This compromise between paganism and Christianity resulted in the development of "the man of sin" foretold in prophecy as opposing and exalting himself above God. That gigantic system of false religion is a masterpiece of Satan's power--a monument of his efforts to seat himself upon the throne to rule the earth according to his will.

Thomas Cranmer (Anglican) 
"Whereof it followeth Rome to be the seat of antichrist, and the pope to be very antichrist himself. I could prove the same by many other scriptures, old writers, and strong reasons." (Referring to prophecies in Revelation and Daniel.)  Taken from Works by Cranmer, Vol. 1, pp. 6-7. 

Roger Williams (First Baptist Pastor in America) 
He spoke of the Pope as "the pretended Vicar of Christ on earth, who sits as God over the Temple of God, exalting himself not only above all that is called God, but over the souls and consciences of all his vassals, yea over the Spirit of Christ, over the Holy Spirit, yea, and God himself...speaking against the God of heaven, thinking to change times and laws; but he is the son of perdition (II Thess. 2)."  Taken from The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers by Froom, Vol. 3, pg. 52. 

1689 London Baptist Confession
Chapter 26: Of the Church. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the church, in whom, by the appointment of the Father, all power for the calling, institution, order or government of the church, is invested in a supreme and sovereign manner; neither can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof, but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God; whom the Lord shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. ( Colossians 1:18; Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:11, 12; 2 Thessalonians 2:2-9 )  

John Knox (Scotch Presbyterian) 
Knox wrote to abolish "that tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church" and that the pope should be recognized as "the very antichrist, and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks."  Taken from The Zurich Letters, pg. 199 by John Knox. 

John Calvin (Presbyterian) 
"Some persons think us too severe and censorious when we call the Roman pontiff Antichrist. But those who are of this opinion do not consider that they bring the same charge of presumption against Paul himself, after whom we speak and whose language we adopt... I shall briefly show that (Paul's words in II Thess. 2) are not capable of any other interpretation than that which applies them to the Papacy."  Taken from Institutes by John Calvin. 

Presbyterian Church (Year 2000)
The following Resolution was unanimously passed by the South Atlantic Presbytery of the Bible Presbyterian Church meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, March 25, 2000.




THE THREAT OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Whereas: The mass media has captivated the world with the activities of Pope John Paul II during his visit to the Holy Land in March 2000; and

Whereas: The Vatican and the Lutheran World Federation have signed, in October, 1999 a joint declaration of accord on the doctrine of justification (only the synods of Wisconsin and Missouri dissented); and

Whereas: In the middle of February, 200, PLO chairman Yasser Arafat met with Pope John Paul II at the vatican to sign an agreement regarding the future of Jerusalem that warned Israel against any unilateral decision affecting Jerusalem; and

Whereas: The House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress has just appointed a Roman Catholic priest as its chaplain for the first time, March 23, 2000; and

Whereas: Pope John Paul II has declared the year 2000 a "Great Jubilee Year" for Roman Catholics that establishes the restoration of indulgences, THE VERY ISSUE THAT PROMPTED MARTIN LUTHER TO DRAFT THE 95 THESES IN OCTOBER OF 1517: papal spokesman Timothy Shugrue states, "The indulgence is one of the spiritual privileges extended during Jubilee. It is a way of applying the merits of the good deeds of the saints and the Virgin Mary and CHrist Himself to the rest of us.";

Therefore: The South Atlantic Presbytery of the Bible Presbyterian Church, at its spring meeting in the Bible Presbyterian Church of Charlotte, N.C., March 25, 2000, resolves and warns the Roman Catholic Church, Mystery, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth (Rev 17:5) constitutes the greatest threat to fundamental Christianity in the 21st century! The Roman Catholic Church has long since forsaken the Bible alone, Grace alone, faith alone, and Christ alone. There should be no confraternity with this apostate church in ministerial associations, community easter sunrise services, Thanksgiving services, mass evangelism or common social endeavors. We admonish devout believers to lovingly and firmly win Roman Catholics to Christ and urge new converts to obey Rev. 18:4, "And I heard a another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sin, and that ye receive not her plagues."

                                                            
             
"In thy light shall we see light" (Psalm 36:9)

All that has been outlined here must be measured in the light of who God is and His purposes in allowing apostasy and persecution. The true believer must compare everything to the Infinite All Holy, Unchangeable, All-Powerful, All Knowing, and All Wise God. The confidence believers have in the Lord is similar to that of David as he weighed the might of Goliath against the True God. "Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied." It is the Lord’s task to consume the wicked with His power. "And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming."

The Lord in His Word has foretold the destruction of Antichrist’s reign; the Word of the Lord will reduce it to nothing. The Antichrist will be completely and in every respect destroyed on the final day of the restoration of all things. Christ will be manifested from heaven as the Judge. In the meantime, the victory of the gospel Word is seen for those who wait on Him. His power has always been greatest in the day of utmost need. 

The character of God in His gracious Gospel is "the spirit of his mouth". This has been understood and lived out as "the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth." We see his power as we boldly proclaim His graciousness, every individual who is saved "being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."
Our prayerful duty is to fear the All Holy God, to obey His great commission, and to trust His victory now and hereafter. "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
