THE POPE PRAYS TO MARY
Question: Should we pray to Mary and the "saints"?
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.
And any such attempts to communicate with the dead is The
dead cannot communicate with us, neither can we communicate with them. direct disobedience
to God's commandment. Scripture is abundantly clear on this issue. The dead
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. do
not And if you have prayed to Mary or the "saints",
before the Lord, repent He is faithful and confess
your sins of necromancy and ignorance to Him. 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
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.
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!
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,
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

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
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.
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
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
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,
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from
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"
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. (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. Pope Sergius III
2. (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." Pope John XII
3. (984 -
985), John XII and Leo VIII were described by the Bishop of Orleans as
"monsters of guilt, reeking in blood and filth." Pope Boniface VII
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. (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." Pope Benedict IX
6. (1198 - 1216) promoted
the Inquisition, surpassing all his predecessors in killing over one million
people. Pope Innocent III
7. (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. Pope Boniface VIII
8. (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. Pope John XXII
9. (1458 - 1464) fathered many
illegitimate children and taught others to do likewise. Pope Pius II
10. (1464 - 1471) maintained a
house full of concubines. Pope Paul II
11. (1471 - 1484) financed
his wars by selling church offices to the highest bidders. Pope Sixtus IV
12. (1484 - 1492) fathered
16 illegitimate children by various women. Pope Innocent VII
13. (1492 - 1503)
committed incest with his two sisters and daughter. On October 31, 1501 he
conducted the worst ever sex orgy in the Vatican. Pope Alexander VI
14. (1534 -
1549) as a cardinal fathered three sons and a daughter and sought advice from
astrologers. Pope Paul III
15. (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." Pope Leo X
16. 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. Pope Joan
17. (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. Pope Stephen VI
18. (1431 - 1447) condemned
Joan of Arc to be burned alive as a witch, but Pope Benedict IV (1919) declared
her a saint. Pope Eugene IV
19. The 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. "Great Schism"
20. 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. Pope Alexander III
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
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.

mockery and rejection of Jesus. Necklaces are worn by many satanist's. It can be

Check it out , and
then come out.
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
I, the LORD, am your God...You shall not have other gods besides
I am the LORD thy God...Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain.
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.
Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.
Honour your father and your mother.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
You shall not kill.
Honour thy father and thy mother.
You shall not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not kill.
You shall not steal.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
Thou shalt not steal.
You shall not covet your neighbour's wife.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
You shall not covet your neighbour's house.
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."
ONLY UNCHANGED CHURCH?
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

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 .
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.
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
- 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 meAll worship is indeed vain when
it is based upon the commandments of men rather than the Word of God. , teaching for
doctrines the commandments of men."
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

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

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
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."
"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

From the second
century A.D. onwards, the interpretation "LATEINOS"

official name or title of the popes is "Vicar of the Son of God" --
'Vicarius Filii Dei'
Hebrew word for this power is 'ROMIITH' -- the Hebrew value being:
official signature of the Pope is "DUX CLERI" which means "High
or Chief Priest." Being Latin this adds to:
every time the Pope of Rome officially signs a document, he writes the Latin
equivalent of the number 666.
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.

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,
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.
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.

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."

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)."

London Baptist Confession
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.
"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.
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
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
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."
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
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
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."
