Happy Reformation Day!

Berry from Social Hazard posted the following piece on his blog. Great quotes Berry!

Celebrating 491 years (with all due respect to such ‘pre-reformers’ Wycliffe and Hus) of freedom from the apostate church of Rome!!

WHAT IS THE HEART OF THE REFORMATION?

5 Solas!
Sola Scriptura! (Col 2:8, 1 Tim 3:16-17, Heb 4:12)
Solus Christus! (1 Tim 2:5-6, Is 43:11, Acts 4:12)
Sola Gratia! (Eph 1:3-8, Eph 2:8-9)
Sola Fide! (Gal 3:6-11, Eph 2:8-9)
Soli Deo Gloria! (Is 42:8)

WHY THE REFORMATION?

The thick pollutions of thine abominable church forbid the idea of descent from any apostle but the traitor Judas.
– Charles Spurgeon

The doctrine of Salvation by Sacraments is- a deadly delusion, the overthrow of the gospel, the destruction of souls and the path to perdition.
–John Campbell

We would as soon worship cats with the Egyptians, as popes with the Romanists: we see no difference between the people whose gods grew in their gardens and the sect whose deity is made by their baker.
– Charles Spurgeon

Rome never changes. Rome will never admit that she has made mistakes. She burned our English Reformers 300 years ago. She tried hard to stamp out by violence the Protestantism which she could not prevent spreading by arguments. If Rome had only the power, I am not sure that she would not attempt to play the whole game over again.
– J. C. Ryle

What is the popish religion, but a bundle of ridiculous ceremonies! Their candles, beads, crucifixes; what are these but Satan’s policy, to dress up a carnal worship, fitted to carnal minds! Oh! what cause have we to bless God for delivering us from popery!
– Thomas Watson

There is a voice in the blood of the martyrs. What does that voice say? It cries aloud from Oxford, Smithfield, and Gloucester,- “Resist to the death the Popish doctrine of the Real Presence, under the forms of the consecrated bread and wine in the Lord’s Supper!”
– J. C. Ryle

The Kingdom of Christ is a kingdom of mercy, grace, and goodness. The kingdom of the Pope is a kingdom of lies and damnation!
– Martin Luther

But the man Christ can be but in one place, and he is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high. It is absurd, it is horrible, both to faith and to reason, to say that Christ’s body is eaten, and that his blood is drunk in tens of thousands of places wherever priests choose to offer what they call “the mass.” A “Mass” of profanity, indeed, it is!
– Charles Spurgeon

For God’s sake beware of Popery: for though it appear to have in it unity, yet the same is vanity and Antichristianity, and not in Christ’s faith and verity.
–Rowland Taylor

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason – I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other – my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.
– Martin Luther (at the Diet of Worms)

The Reformation found Englishmen steeped in ignorance–and left them in possession of knowledge. It found them blind–and left them seeing. It found them without Bibles–and left them with a Bible in every parish. It found them priest-ridden–and left them enjoying the liberty which Christ bestows. It found them strangers to saving faith, and grace, and holiness–and left them with the key to those things in their hands. It found them slaves–and left them free.
– J. C. Ryle

Mark me as ANATHEMA, Church of Rome, and I shall wear the scarlet A with pride! To be cursed by the Antichrist is to be blessed by the Christ. You, Popes and Bishops, are powerless to damn anyone but yourselves and those who would blindly follow your false gospel. Even so, I pray that you would turn from your heresies.
– (yours truly) [Berry]

    Amen Berry!

    Thanks for sharing this!

    I for one am convinced that Roman Catholicism is a spiritual opiate for the idolatrous masses. The Roman Catholic Church is the equivalent of a spiritual crack house filled with pimps, whores, and junkies.

    Just as the heroin junkie will forsake all in his violent and relentless pursuit of his next “fix”, so does the bootlicking papist lapdog pant and howl and beg to be satiated by Rome’s nefarious idolatry.

    And just as the porn addict will destroy himself and sear his conscience in his neverending quest for ever more debased sexual perversion so does the Romish idolater lust and burn in his debauched desire to spiritually prostitute himself ever more shamefully with the great whore of Babylon.

    Again just as the thief is unable to control his hands from taking what does not belong to him so does the vile and wicked priesthood of Rome continually attempt to steal the honor and glory that belongs to God alone each and every time they participate in the unspeakably blasphemous and painfully idolatrous observance of the mass.

    Soli Deo Gloria!

    In Him,
    CD
