Please list for me every single description the Bible gives for who the Revelation 13 Sea Beast (or little horn power of Daniel 7) is and I will tell
you exactly how the papacy fulfills all the criteria exactly through the historical record.
The Catholic Church, God's true church huh....'the dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority'....well the dragon (Satan)
isn't my God
Look into the advice people are given who wish to become a priest in the Church of Satan, they are told to become a Roman Catholic priest first
Lets see what the Papacy has to write about itself:
"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate law, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." - Decretal De Translat.
"The Pope's will stand for reason. He can dispense above the law; and of wrong make right, by correcting and changing laws." - Pope Nicholas, Dist.
96, Qutoed in "Facts for the Times." pp55,56. 1893
Can change the Divine Law huh and even the precepts of Christ....so a man (the pope) is above God huh...shows where your allegiances lie.
2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be
revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all is called God
So you are perfectly Okay with the papacy removing the 3rd commandment for no Idol worship and changing the Holy day of worship from Sabbath
(Saturday) to Sunday????
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalm 89:4
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever. Heb. 13:8
He that saith, I know him, and keepth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 1 John 2:4
If ye love me, keep my commandments John 14:15
Does your salvation rely on Jesus or man?????
"She took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday...and thus the Pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday sacred to
Jesus" - (Cath. World, March 1894, p.809.)
What is your Holy Sunday?
“Is Saturday the seventh day according to the Bible and the Ten Commandments? I answer yes. Is Sunday the first day of the week and did the Church
change the seventh day - Saturday - for Sunday, the first day? I answer yes. Did Christ change the day’? I answer no!”
“Faithfully yours, J. Card. Gibbons.” — James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, Md. (1877-1921), in a signed letter.
“Sunday is our mark or authority...the church is above the Bible
, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.” —
Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1, 1923.
Dictionary definition of Sunday -
'Webster's International Dictionary, 19th edition' - Sunday...so called because this day was anciently dedicated to the sun, or its worship
'Schaff-Herza Encyclopedia' - Sunday (Dies Solis of the Roman calendar, 'day of the sun,' being dedicated to the sun), the first day of the week
"Sunday is founded not on Scripture, but on tradition, and is a distinctly Catholic institution." - Catholic Recrod Sept. 17, 1893
"The New Testament makes no explicit mention that the apostles changed the day of worship, but we know it from tradition." - The New Revised Baltimore
Catechism (1949) p.139
note: the tradition is from Paganism
- (Matthew 15:3,6,9) But He answered and said to them, why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?...And you void the
commandment of God by your tradition...But in vain they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
- "These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men...And
he said to them. 'You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions.'" Mark 7:7,9
