      “Rome Versus The Bible. After the Church had fallen from its apostolic purity of life and doctrine, it found that, where the Bible was read by the common people, they lost faith in the Church and opposed her worship as a species of idolatry. This was particularly true of the Waldenses, who had retained the Bible in their native language hundreds of years before the Reformation, and had copied and spread its pages over Catholic Christendom, wherever their missionaries traveled. It was natural, therefore, that the Roman Church, instead of supplying the common people with the Scriptures in their native tongue, should oppose this.

      “Cardinal Merry del Val says that on account of the activity of the Waldenses, and later of the Protestants, in spreading the Scriptures in the native language of the people, ‘the Pontiffs and the Councils were obliged on more than one occasion to control and sometimes even forbid the use of the Bible in the vernacular.’     Read more

Claims that the head of Christ’s church on earth is a visible man, not the Holy Spirit

    “It is one of the leading doctrines of Romanism that the pope is the visible head of the universal church of Christ, invested with supreme authority over bishops and pastors in all parts of the world. More than this, the pope has been given the very titles of Deity. He has been styled ‘the Lord God the Pope’ [See Appendix], and has been declared infallible. He demands the homage [worship and veneration] of all men. The same claim urged by Satan in the wilderness of temptation, is still urged by him through the Church of Rome, and vast numbers are ready to yield him homage.

“But those who fear and reverence God meet this Heaven-daring assumption of Christ met the solicitations of the wily foe: ‘Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.’ Luke 4: 8. God has never given a hint in His word that He has appointed any man to be the head of the church. The doctrine of papal supremacy is directly opposed to the teachings of the Scriptures. The pope can have no power over Christ’s church except by usurpation.”- Ibid. Read more

The ‘Man of Sin’ of Bible Prophecy and his activities and career – Part I

INTRODUCTION

The Son of God and the Son of Man

This most fundamental of all Biblical truths must be firmly established at the outset for it shows the contrast between the Son of man and the man of sin:

The plan of redemption of the everlasting gospel is indeed “the good news of salvation.” Salvation from what? from the power of the following:

(1) Satan, the fallen Lucifer who became “the great dragon, the serpent of old, Satan, the devil, the master deceiver and enemy of God and man, who first caused the rebellion and fall of one-third of the angels in heaven in the first war against the law, kingdom, and authority of Jesus, the Creator Read more
