The Papacy: A Demonstration
The whole economy of Redemption, and the whole course of History are the broad substructions on which the argument is based and built up; and the author humbly submits that it cannot be overturned, or the conclusion arrived at set aside, without dislocating and shaking the structure of both Revelation and Providence. The same line of proof which establishes that Christ is the promised Messiah, conversely applied, establishes that the Roman system is the predicted Apostasy. In the life of Christ we behold the converse of what the Antichrist must be and in the prophecy of the Antichrist we are shown the converse of what Christ must be, and was. And when we place the Papacy between the two and compare it with each, we find, on the one hand, that it is the perfect converse of Christ as seen in His life and, on the other, that it is the perfect image of the Antichrist as shown in the prophecy of Him. We conclude, therefore, that if Jesus of Nazareth be the Christ, the Roman Papacy is the Antichrist.
This book contains the classic teaching of the Protestant Reformation regarding the Antichrist (an integral part of that Reformation, we might add--as all the Reformed creeds and confessions attest). The easy reading format and style make this book an ideal introduction to this topic.
