Quote

“You say further that Rome is perhaps the most wonderfully devised mechanism extant.  By her admirable organization she appears as the most Brilliant, intellectual, and worldly-wise manifestation of the Anti-Christ in the world up to date, and that is why she is the most flexible, the most adjustable, the most adaptable scheme of things devised by man.  She can conform to any proposition of the corrupt human mind, but not to the truth as revealed to us by the Holy Ghost, because the Carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed  can be.  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  Rom. 8:7.8.
“Rome has changed the truth of God into a lie, worshipping and serving the creature more than the creator.  Rom 1:25.  Witness Transubstantiation, denial of the sufficiency of the mediatorial work and Sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Mariolatry, adoration of Angels, Saints, and what not.  Rome has done, and does, what the Devil tempted our Lord to do, to fall down and worship him and then he will give him all the glory of the world with its kingdoms and dominions, and that Rome has not got it is because Satan cannot deliver the goods, but that is the aim of the Church of Rome.  The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof, Ps 24:1.”
-Tjerk Veenstra (one of my ancestors), in a letter, 1927
