WORLD CRISIS FORETOLD –CIVIL AND DIVINE LAWS ENDANGERED-part 11-

TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THE PAPACY IS LEADING, LOOK AT HER PAST HISTORY-part 5-

MILLIONS OF MARTYRS

IN the thirteenth century was established that most terrible of all the engines of the Papacy-the inquisition. The prince of darkness wrought with the leaders of the papal hierarchy. In their secret councils Satan and his angels controlled the minds of evil men, while unseen in the midst stood an angel of God, taking the fearful record of their iniquitous decrees and writing the history of deeds too horrible to appear to human eyes.  The mangled forms of millions of martyrs cried to God for vengeance upon that apostate power.

“Pope John Paul II asked forgiveness for Catholic-Protestant wars in Europe during the Counter-reformation” (U.S, News and World Report, July 3, 1995)

This and similar news reports are an indirect acknowledgement of responsibility for millions of   martyrs during the Dar Ages.  The Bible predicts that under stressful conditions just before us, the Papacy and its supporters will again resort to the use of civil power to control dissenters.  

MAXIMUN DARKNESS

POPERY had become the world’s despot. Kings and emperors bowed to the decrees of the Roman pontiff. The destinies of men, both for time and for eternity, seemed under his control.  For hundreds of years the doctrines of Rome had been extensively and implicitly received, its rites reverently performed, its festivals generally observed.  Its clergy were honored and liberally sustained.  Never since has the Roman Church attained to greater dignity, magnificence, or power.

UNRESTRAINED VICE

BUT “the noon of the Papacy was the midnight of the world” (J.A. Wylie,-The History of Protestantism, b. 1, ch. 4). The Holy Scriptures were almost unknown, not only to the people, but to the priests. Like the Pharisees of old, the papal leaders hated the light which would reveal their sins.  God’s law, the standard of righteousness, having been removed, they exercised power without limit, and practiced vice without restraint.  Fraud, avarice, and profligacy prevailed.  Men shrank from no crime by which they could gain wealth or position.  The palaces of popes and prelates were scenes of the vilest debauchery.  Some of the reigning pontiffs were guilty of crimes so revolting that secular rulers endeavored to depose these dignitaries of the church as monsters too vile to be tolerated.  For centuries Europe had made no progress in learning, arts, or civilization.  A moral and intellectual paralysis had fallen upon Christendom.
