Popery: Religion of Fig Leaves With regards to Genesis 3:1-24, we know that Adam and Eve made aprons of fig leaves after they sinned by eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil in an attempt to hide their nakedness. The aprons of fig leaves are clearly the first known attempt at salvation through works. Just as Adam and Eve futilely attempted to hid their nakedness through aprons made of fig leaves, so Roman Catholics futilely attempt to hide their nakedness through their partaking of the "seven sacraments." The reality is that Adam and Eve could not hide their nakedness with their aprons made of fig leaves anymore than Catholics hide their nakedness with their participation in the "seven sacraments." This sermon shows that popery is a religion of fig leaves, which means that popery is a religion which causes spiritual nakedness to its own adherents.
Borgia Family: Evil Family As the Ahab family in The Book of 1st Kings and 2nd Kings was an evil idolatrous family with many vices, so was the Borgia family. The Borgia family was a lot like the Ahab family in that both were national leaders involved in idolatry. We know that righteous Elijah would have taken a stand against the evil Borgia family like he did against the evil Ahab family. As the Ahab family proved The Lord to wrath, so did the Borgia family, and so does the idolatrous Vatican of today. The Ahab family were a picture of the coming antichrist as were the Borgia family. We ought to remember the example of 1 Kings 18:1-46 in times like these. Also in 1 Kings 18, we realize that Elijah slew the prophets of Baal and the prophets of the groves. As Elijah slew the prophets of Baal and the prophets of the groves, so The Lord slew the Ahab family and the Borgia family. This sermon is a warning that all idolaters, including the Baal worshipers and Catholics, shall have their part in the Lake of Fire which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. This sermon is a call to repent of all manner of idolatry. It also shows why popery is just a revival of the Baal worship of the past.
Catholic Church: Church of Rebels This sermon clearly shows that the Catholic Church is really a church of rebels. We know that Revelation 17:1-18 warns us about the global rebel church and its rebellious abominations. We also realize that Revelation 18:1-24 is a death sentence to the global rebel church. Our Protestant Reformers identified the Catholic Church with the Whore of Babylon because the Catholic Church has numerous rebellious abominations like the Inquisition, Mariolatry, worship of the "saints", and indulgences. This sermon shows that the rebel church known as the Catholic Church is preparing the world for the rebellious Antichrist Beast. As we know, the Antichrist Beast spoken of in Revelation 13:1-18 is a rebel against Abba Father, Jesus The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The term antichrist also means rebel, particularly a rebel against The Lord. This sermon is a clear indictment against the rebellious Catholic Church.
Popes: Another Name For Rebels This sermon is an indictment against rebellious popery and all of its many acts of rebellion. This sermon also demonstrates that the pope is just another name for a rebel. All of the dead popes are remembered as dead rebels against The Lord. Our Protestant Reformers clearly identified the Antichrist with the papacy since they understood that the pope is a rebel against The Lord. A sermon like this is a plea to repent of such rebellion against The Lord known as popery since Satan is the father of all rebellion.
Borgia Family: Rebels Against The Lord It should be noted that the Borgia family were rebels against The Lord as were all historical figures aligned with popery since popery itself is rebellion against The Lord. The Borgia family had a rebellious pope as their father named Pope Alexander VI, born Rodrigo de Borja. Not only that, but Pope Alexander VI committed adultery with Vannozza dei Cattanei, thereby producing the rebellious Borgia children. As we know, The Lord will judge the rebellious Borgia family at The Great White Throne and cast them into The Lake of Fire as eternal punishment for their rebellious sin of popery. Worth noting Revelation 20:11-15.
Great contrast. Blessed contrast! Only the grace of our Lord Jesus can make such a contrast, saving and sanctifying people and making them beautiful, in contrast with the ugliness of the world and of sin.
Tattoos: Pagan Cuttings In The Flesh It is worth remembering Leviticus 19:1-37 in times like these. The word tattoo comes from Samoan tatau (to tap, to strike) meaning striking cuttings in the flesh. This sermon shows why we should not have any pagan cuttings in the flesh, which are known as tattoos.
