My good friend Walt Stickel of http://granddesignexposed.com/ linked to http://seawaves.us/na/web4/papacyantichrist.html from his website from which I got this article. The font on that site is too small and hard on my eyes to read which is why I am re-posting it on my own website. I also hope for this article to be more accessible for everyone. Thanks to WordPress technology, it’s simple to re-post classic books to make them easier for me to read. And also thanks to an on-line tool I used to remove unnecessary link breaks.

PREFACE.

The following demonstration is rested on no narrow basis. Its two postulates, like two posterns, admit us into the edifice, but they are not its foundations. 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 Apostacy. 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.
