We true Christians must love the lost within her but must hate the false church itself.
As Charles spurgeon said: Popery is contrary to Christ's gospel and is the Antichrist and we
ought to pray against it. It should be the daily prayer of every believer that Antichrist might be hurled like a millstone
into the flood and for Christ because it wounds Christ, because it robs Christ of His glory, because it puts sacramental efficacy
in the place of His atonement and lifts a piece of bread into the place of the Savior and a few drops of water into the place
of the Holy Spirit and puts a mere fallible man like ourselves up as the Vicar of Christ on earth. If we pray against it because
it is against Him who shall love the persons though we hate their errors, we shall love their souls though we loathe and detest
their dogmas. And so the breath of our prayers will be sweetened because we turn our faces toward Christ when we pray."
"Of all the dreams that have ever deluded men, and probably of all blasphemies that ever were
uttered, there has never been one which is more absurd and which is more fruitful in all manner of mischief than the idea
that the Bishop of Rome can be the head of the church of Jesus Christ. No. These Popes die, and how could the church live
if its head were dead? The true head ever lives and the church ever lives in Him." And Spurgeon said, "A man...this is very
interesting...a man who deludes other people by degrees comes to delude himself. The deluder first makes dupes out of others
and then becomes a dupe to himself. I should not wonder but what the Pope really believes that he is infallible and that he
ought to be saluted as His Holiness. It must have taken him a good time to arrive at that eminence of self-deception. But
he's got to it, I daresay by now, and everyone who kisses his toe confirms him in this insane idea. When everybody else believes
a flattering falsehood concerning you, you come at last to believe it yourself. Or at least to think it may be so. But the
Pharisees being continually called the learned, rabbi, father, the holy scribe, the devout and pious doctor, the sanctified
teacher believed the flattering compliments. They used very grand phrases in those days and doctors of divinity were very
common, almost as common as they are now and the crowd of doctors and rabbis help to keep each other in countenance by repeating
each other's fine names until they believed they meant something. Dear friends,"
"it's very difficult to receive honor and expect it and yet to keep your eyesight for men's eyes
gradually grow dull through the smoke of the incense which is burned before them. And when their eyes become dim with self-conceit,
their own great selves conceal the cross and make them unable to believe the truth."
“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’[a]
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
3 For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’[b]
you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5 for her sins are
piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
COME OUT OF HER! The evidence against her is stacked to heaven - plain for all to
see. If you were born into her - leave, even though it costs you your family and livelyhood for, as the Lord himself said:
what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
27"For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING
TO HIS DEEDS.
COME OUT OF HER. THE TIME IS SHORT.
