John Owen distinguishing between Romanism and Catholicism

John Owen (1616-1683):

The truth is, when once Romanism began to be enthroned, and had driven Catholicism out of the world, we had very few kings that passed their days in peace and quietness from contests with the pope, or such as acted for him, or were stirred up by him.

-The Works of John Owen, Animadversions on a Treatise Entitled Fiat Lux, IX, ed. William H. Goold, (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, Third printing, 1977), vol. XIV, p. 103.

Incredibly Evil in Intent

“The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.”

Ancient Testimonies Ignored by Romanists #1

DTK on the Puritan Board:

Thinking about beginning a series of such testimonies . . . Citations you’ll never see a Romanist cite. These are from my latest acquisition.

Cyril of Alexandria (patriarch 412-444): For how is it that we should accept what the divine Scripture has not stated and reckon it as being among those things that are true? Fathers of the Church, Vol. 137, St. Cyril of Alexandria: Glaphyra on the Pentateuch, Vol. 1, Genesis (Washington, D.C.: The Catholic University of America Press, 2018), p. 84.
Greek text: Ὃ γὰρ οὐκ εἴρηκεν ἡ θεία Γραφὴ, τίνα δὴ τρόπον παραδεξόμεθα, καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀληθῶς ἔχουσι καταλογιούμεθα; Glaphyrorum In Genesim, Liber II, PG 69:53C.

Cyril of Alexandria (patriarch 412-444): At many times and in many ways the inspired scripture set forth in advance figures of the salvation to come through Christ, thereby bringing considerable benefit to those reading it. Fathers of the Church, Vol. 137, St. Cyril of Alexandria: Glaphyra on the Pentateuch, Vol. 1, Genesis (Washington, D.C.: The Catholic University of America Press, 2018), p. 225.
Greek text: Πολυμερῶς καὶ πολυτρόπως ἡ θεόπνευστος γραφὴ τῆς διὰ Χριστοῦ σωτηρίας προαναφωνεῖ τοὺς τύπους, οὐ μετρίαν ἐντεῦθεν τοῖς ἐντευξομένοις τιθεῖσα τὴν ὄνησιν. Glaphyrorum in Genesim, Liber V, §1, PG 69:225C.

Cyril of Alexandria (patriarch 412-444) citing and commenting on 1 Jn 2:27: But to those in the faith, who are in Christ, the wise John writes, “You do not need anyone to teach you, but his anointing teaches you about all things.” For those who have the mind of Christ know all things, and they are not incapable of teaching and exhorting one another. Fathers of the Church, Vol. 137, St. Cyril of Alexandria: Glaphyra on the Pentateuch, Vol. 1, Genesis (Washington, D.C.: The Catholic University of America Press, 2018), p. 354.
Greek text: Ἐπιστέλλει δὲ τοῖς ἐν πίστει καὶ ἐν Χριστῷ λέγων ὁ σοφὸς Ἰωάννης· Οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε ἵνα τις διδάσκῃ ὑμᾶς, ἀλλ’ ὡς αὐτοῦ χρίσμα διδάσκει ὑμᾶς περὶ πάντων. Νοῦν γὰρ ἔχουσι Χριστοῦ τοῦ πάντα εἰδότος, καὶ οὐκ ἀνικάνως ἔχουσιν εἰς τὸ διδάσκειν καὶ παρακαλεῖν ἀλλήλους. Glaphyrorum In Genesim, Liber VII, PG 69:584C.

Not exactly an exaltation of the Roman magisterium as obtruded upon the public of our day.

The Waldenses

The Gospel Light and Truth Crusade:

Grace and peace, Saints.

Most of us in the household of faith know little of our Protestant heritage. We may know something of Martin Luther and the Reformation, and we may have heard of the martyrdom of William Tyndale for his valiant efforts to make the Word of God available to the common folk in the English language. But we are mostly ignorant of those faithful believers who, centuries before the Reformation, defied the Catholic Church by obeying the Great Commission and preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Waldenses, a group of Bible-believing Christians who lived in the valley of the Piedmont, in France, are one such example. Today, little is known of the Waldenses, and nothing remains of their culture and literature, as the Catholic Church mounted a terrible crusade against these peaceful people for the express purpose of not only destroying them, but erasing them from memory. I have learned something of the Waldenses and of their remarkable founder, Peter Waldo; and I would like to share it with you in order to:

  1. Preserve their memory
  2. Inspire personal research
  3. Remind the Body of Christ that the Roman Catholic Church is the sworn enemy of Jesus Christ, the Bible, and all Bible-believing Christians: that is, Protestants.

The Gunpowder Plot

Reformation.org on the attempted Jesuit takeover of the papacy and the U.S. This fits with the interpretation of the woman on the beast in Revelation 17 as the Jesuit order trying to control the international political order:

Beginning with the new millennium, the Militia of Satan opted for a new 3-pronged strategy:

      • Install a Jesuit White Pope in the Vatican.
      • Install a Jesuit Chief Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
      • Install a Jesuit President in the White House...

Daniel 9:27 Grossly Mistranslated in Modern Versions

James Arendt:

I used to believe that Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled by the Antichrist being processed by Satan during a final 7 year reign on earth just before the return of Jesus Christ. Imagine my surprise to learn Daniel 9:27 was considered a Messianic prophecy by all Protestant Christians before the 19th century! They believed it was fulfilled by Jesus Christ 2000 years ago! I came to this realization from December 2014 after holding the popular but mistaken interpretation for 40 years. It was thanks to a dear brother in Christ, David Nikao, who opened my eyes by his website: http://70thweekofdaniel.com/

All Prophecies of Daniel 11 Fulfilled!

Bryan T. Huie via James Japan:

The longest continuous prophecy in the Bible is found in the 11th chapter of Daniel. It details events affecting the Jews from the 5th to the 1st centuries BCE. According to the internal dating of Daniel, it was compiled during the mid-6th century BCE. However, the prophecies found in Daniel (especially chapter 11) have caused some liberal Bible scholars to assign a much later date to the book of Daniel…

Seven Events Evangelicals Incorrectly Believe Will be Fulfilled in the Endtime

James Arendt:

  1. There is no seven-year countdown to Armageddon – prophesied in the Bible. The Scripture used to support a final 7 years is Daniel 9:27: And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week… Protestant Christians up to the 19th century used to teach the seven year confirmation of the Covenant was fulfilled in Christ and His Apostles up to the stoning of Stephen…
