Here are a couple of quotes from well known people who have passed on. The first quote is from Charles Spurgeon from England, who was known as the “Prince of Preachers”. I am not a “Calvinist” but I only quote his man because of his acute discernment regarding the counterfeit church of Rome.
“Our ancient enemies have small belief in our common sense if they imagine that we shall ever be able to trust them, after having so often beheld the depths of Jesuitical cunning and duplicity. The sooner we let certain Archbishops and Cardinals know that we are aware of their designs, and will in nothing cooperate with them the better for us and our country. Of course, we shall be howled at as bigots, but we can afford to smile at that cry, when it comes from the church which invented the Inquisition, ‘No peace with Rome’ is the motto of reason as well as of religion.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Geese in Their Hoods: Selected Writings on Roman Catholocism, (Publisher unknown, 1873).]
This next quote is from the man who invented the “Morse Code” and his name is Samuel Morse.
“They are Jesuits. This society of men, after exerting their tyranny for upwards of two hundred years, at length became so formidable to the world, threatening the entire subversion of all social order, that even the Pope, whose devoted subjects they are, and must be, by the vow of their society, was compelled to dissolve them. They had not been suppressed, however, for fifty years, before the waning influence of Popery and Despotism required their useful labors, to resist the light of Democratic liberty, and the Pope (Pius VII), simultaneously with the formation of the Holy Alliance, revived the order of the Jesuits in all their ‘power. From their vow of ‘unqualified submission to the Sovereign Pontiff,” they have been appropriately called the Pope’s Body Guard.
“And do Americans need to be told what Jesuits are? . . . they are a secret society, a sort of Masonic order, with superadded features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous. They are not merely priests, or of one religious creed; they are merchants, and lawyers, and editors, and men of any profession, having no outward badge, (in this country) by which to be recognized; they are about in all your society.
“They can assume any character, that of angels of light, or ministers of darkness to accomplish their one great end, the service upon which they are sent, whatever that service may be. They are all educated men, prepared and sworn to start at any moment, and in any direction, and for any service, commanded by the general of their order, bound to no family, community, or country, by the ordinary ties which bind men; and sold for life to the cause of the Roman Pontiff.”
“And who are these agents? They are for the most part, Jesuits, an ecclesiastical order proverbial through the world for cunning, duplicity, and total want of moral principle; an order so skilled in all the arts of deception that even in Catholic countries, in Italy itself, it became intolerable, and the people required its suppression.” Samuel Morse, Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States, (Boston, Massachusetts: Crocker & Brewster, 1835), Vol. I, p. 55.]
