Archive for the ‘1.12-PROTESTANTISM HAS FORGOTTEN HER ROOTS: She was ordained to resist and denounce the errors of Rome. Now she is willing to embrace them?- IMPER.’ Category




THE lack of the knowledge of the Word of God allowed the Papacy to rule the world during the Dark Ages.  Toward the end of that age, as an understanding of God’s Word began to unfold, men began to protest the errors prevalent during that time.  Those Protestant Reformers threw off the shackles of error and superstition, and began to let the light of God’s Word shine.  These men received the title of Protestants, because, as they understood the truth of God’s Word they saw that they must protest and oppose the error of Catholicism if they would be true to God.  Once again in the history of this planet the knowledge of God’s Word had been forgotten.  Compare the Reformers’ understanding of the Papacy with the beliefs of this modern generation.

“For professing faith contrary to the Church of Rome, history records the martyrdom of more than one hundred million people” (Brief Bible Readings, page 16)

“On August 24, 1527, Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70.000 Protestants within the space of two months.  The pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome.”  (Western Watchman, November 21, 1912,-Catholic-)


MARTIN LUTHER said, “I know that the pope is the Antichrist, and that his see is that of Satan himself.  The Papacy is the general chase, by command of the Roman pontiff, for the purpose of running down and destroying souls”.

CHARLES SPURGEON said, “We must warn with judicious boldness those who incline towards the errors of Rome; we must tell them of the black doings of Popery”.

JOHN KNOX said the pope was “the very antichrist”.

JOHN WESLEY said of the Papacy, “He is an emphatical sense, the Man of Sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure”.

JOHN CALVIN said, “We call the Roman pontiff Antichrist”.


TODAY the descendants of those faithful martyrs have forgotten why they call themselves Protestants.  Consider the following:

“It is time for Protestants to go to the shepherd (the pope) and say, ‘What do we have to do to come home?’ “  (Dr. Robert Schuller, Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Sept. 19, 1987).

“Heads of American Protestant and Eastern Orthodox churches who were meeting with Pope John Paul II on Friday hailed their first broadly representative discussion as a landmark on the road to greater unity…The Rev. Donald Jones, a United Methodist and chairman of the University of South Carolina religious studies department, termed it, ‘the most important ecumenical meeting of the century’…The Rev. Paul A Crow Jr., of Indianapolis, ecumenical officer of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), called it a ‘new day in ecumenism’ opening a future in which God ‘is drawing us together’ “  (The Montgomery Advertiser, Sept.12, 1987)

“If Catholicism is to become more Catholic in the future, which is what I expect under the present pope, then theological differences will become sharper, but our alliances with Catholics against the secular culture can become deeper.  I, for one, am ready for the trade-off.”  (David Wells, Eternity Magazine, Sept. 1987).

“Protestant and Catholic charismatic teaching on the Christian life is to all intents and purposes identical. Is this not significant for the Christian future?”(J.I.Packer, Christianity Today, June 22, 1992)

Protestantism has forgotten her roots. She was ordained to resist and denounce the errors of Rome.  Now she is willing to embrace them.  Now as the entire world is on the verge of Rome’s final assault, the former enemies are forming alliances.  The Protestant world has forgotten they are involved in an eternal battle, and because of their willing neglect of knowledge, they are destined to be destroyed.
