Chapter Thirteen

DDING TO THE many contradictions with which the Romish system was already plagued, there were popes, like the god Janus of olden times, who began to claim they were infallible. People naturally questioned how infallibility could be linked with the papal office when some of the popes had been very poor examples in morals and integrity. And if the infallibility be applied only to doctrines pronounced by the popes, how was it that some popes had disagreed with other popes Even a number of the...

E HAVE SEEN from the Scriptures certain reasons for questioning Friday as the day on which Christ was crucified. Yet each Friday, many Catholics abstain from meat substituting fish in its place supposedly in remembrance of the Friday crucifixion. Roman Catholics in the United States are no longer required by their church to abstain from meat on Fridays (as formerly) except during Lent nevertheless many still follow the custom of fish on Friday. Certainly the Scriptures never associate fish with...

N OUTSTANDING FACTOR THAT contributed to the adoration of the cross image within the Romish church was the famous vision of the cross and subsequent conversion of Constantine. As he and his soldiers approached Rome, they were about to face what is known as the Battle of Milvian Bridge. According to the custom of the time, the haruspices (those who employed divination by such means as reading the entrails of sacrificial animals) were called to give advice. (The use of divination before battles...

TANDING AT THE head of the Roman Catholic church is the pope of Rome. This man according to Catholic doctrine is the earthly head of the church and successor of the apostle Peter. According to this belief, Christ appointed Peter as the first pope, who in turn went to Rome and served in this capacity for twenty-five years. Beginning with Peter, the Catholic church claims a succession of popes which has continued to this day. This is a very important part of Roman Catholic doctrine. But do the...

HRISTMAS DECEMBER 25th-is the day designated on our calendars as the day of Christ's birth. But is this really the day on which he was born Are today's customs at this season of Christian origin Or is Christmas another example of mixture between paganism and Christianity A look at the word Christmas indicates that it is a mixture.

GKUgg HE HIGHEST RANKING men of the Roman Catho-gigSgilic Church, next to the pope, are a group of cardinals. The Bible says that Christ placed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in his church (Eph. 4 11). But we never find any indication that he ordained a group of cardinals. To the contrary, the original cardinals were a group of leading priests in the ancient pagan religion of Rome long before the Christian Era. A booklet published by the Knights of Columbus, This is the...

Execution Christ

Inquisition Torture room by Picart (1673-1 733), Victims after being stripped of their clothing had their arms tied behind their backs with a hard cord. Weights were attached to their feet. The action of a pulley suspended them in mid-air or dropped and raised them with a jerk, dislocating joints of the body. While such torture was being employed, priests holding up crosses would attempt to get the heretics to recant. Ridpath's History of the World includes an illustration of the work of the...

OST OF US have assumed that Jesus died on Good Friday and rose from the dead early on Easter Sunday morning. Since Jesus said he would rise the third day, some count part of Friday as one day, Saturday as the second, and part of Sunday as the third. It is pointed out that sometimes an expression like the third day can include only parts of days, a part of a day being counted as a whole. The Jewish Encyclopedia says that the day of a funeral, even though the funeral might take place late in the...

N ADDITION TO the conclusive evidence that has I been given, the very character and morals of many of the popes would tend to identify them as sucessors of pagan priests, rather than representatives of Christ or Peter. Some of the popes were so depraved and base in their actions, even people who professed no religion at all were ashamed of them. Such sins as adultery, sodomy, simony, rape, murder, and drunkenness are among the sins that have been committed by popes. To link such sins with men...

A pretty maid, a Protestant, was to a Catholic wed To love all Bible truths and tales, quite early she'd been bred. It sorely grieved her husband's heart that she would not comply, And join the Mother Church of Rome and heretics deny. So day by day he flattered her, but still she saw no good Would ever come from bowing down to idols made of wood. The Mass, the host, the miracles, were made but to deceive And transubstantiation, too, she'd never dare believe. He went to see his clergyman and...

IMROD, THE KING and founder of Babylon, was I not only its political leader, he was its religious leader also. He was a priest-king. From Nimrod descended a line of priest-kings each standing at the head of the occult Babylonian mystery religion. This line continued on down to the days of Belshazzar of whom we read in the Bible. Many are familiar with the feast he held in Babylon when the mysterious handwriting appeared on the wall. Some have failed to recognize, however, that this gathering...

Merged into the religious system of Rome. This included the idea of a Supreme Pontiff Pontifex Maximus . Thus Babylonian paganism, which had originally been carried out under the rulership of Nimrod, was united under the rulership of one man at Rome Julius Caesar. It was the year 63 B. C. that Julius Caesar was officially recognized as the Pontifex Maximus of the mystery religion now established at Rome. To illustrate how this title was used by the Caesars, we show here an old Roman coin of...

Numerous monuments of Babylon show the goddess mother Semiramis with her child Tammuz in her arms.1 When the people of Babylon were scattered to the various parts of the earth,...
