Roman Catholicism Exposed,- The. One Man Theory Condemned AND Bible Points Discussed. "Thou stall have no ethers gods before rue."-' Ex. 20 3. therefore, .When they tench you these tilings, beware of what you do; for Gad has spoken, and also warned you ot thk man. pope, aii hi blaspheming, and lying wonders, be not , deceived; yea, let God be true and every man a liari For tlila ;m4n ix)pe requires of all that Is under hltn, to bow down before' these-,, lin- -age, and pray before litem. And we add, that by this very act, they make merchandise of you. Wherefore, Jurist says," .My house is a hous&of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.". For by this superstitious worship, they would if they could, steal God's own gky from Him, and rob Him of Ilia power. ' Hut t) lis they cannot do. ' 1 ' ; Hence they have to be. satisfied with the millions of souls they steal from God in this way, and rob them of their brilit home beyond, and place them toy-over in a state of remorse. Then dear soul, whon he beckons to you; 'lo, here is Christ:" Christ says heed him nut. He then may tell you next, to worship' the whole host of heaven. God says to you this is an abomination to Him, Ho then tells you, again,, that you must bow down before images; when God. tsnys to you, Hint you must not; Nor even .u in uchus make thein. Hut the Header might ask th tlmi; Does the Pope and his body claim any virtue in tlies" iin t r . And for the answer we shall let their own language sp.-il; m ! -oy, 'That one day while". 'i St. Alphonsus Liofy was pivarh ni-.iltl, ho was ravished TH E BEAST WITH SEVEN H E ADS AND TEN HORNS WHICH JOHN THE REV- SAW (Contained from hist week.) Hence, he says, make to thyself no other Gods; neither must you serve them, not even the saints, nor angels, as he teache us by Peter, at the house of Cornelius: and also by John the lteve- iutor, when he fell down to worship the angel; and the angel said unto John: " See thou do it not, for I am thy fellow-servant, and one of thy brethren." And we ask you to read this language, that was spoken by the children of Israel, unto the prophet, uiwn this same point, and then read the answer of God; they say to the prophet, "As for the word that thou has spoken unto us in the iiviiiv. wi nn, uimui tv m Ti4i uwu iiwiiiivtu uiluu lliUVe UUl Wl n 111 Ctrl linly do whatsoever tiling goetii forth out of our own mouth to burn incense unto the Queen of heaven," Then Jeremiah said unto them, - Because of these abominations, your laud is a des olation and a curse." (Jer. 44 10 -17 :!:.', Because the? wor ship the whole host of heaven, as it reads in another place. Hence, you sec that this is an abomination unto God, yet the pope will teach you to choose the virgin as your advocate and have you to ask her to protect you, and yet puts himself' up in tho l!ii.-e of Christ to pardon you. Oh! Dear Reader, 'is this not -.lough to Lt yon see his lying wonders, that lie presents to you: . in t in l ii ! i.ii ii i u ilii ijiiiTb vv nun itiiiii i ii i' it rir un innriiiii n -w i fore you, as having virtue to help to rescue you from the torments f l ergatory, as you will learn in this language.

From this moment, I have recourse to you t'lil Iiim nf vim i nudist, inn in flint, mwuxm' " fia lti-.lr lii answer to this, we will have to say to you just what God hiiwitlf yni1 niiruif rlmf. unjl l Inif. lu "Tlmu shalt not make unto thee any. graven imairo or anv ilicii 'H.s of any thing that is in heaven above ortlmt is in the n th beneath or that is in the water under the earth." Ex. 20 !. Then you see God leaches us, that His house is not a house for he decorated with images, for them to hear and help us: Hut in '.-I- Ml.'l-'lMltlUIUU WIUIl nllll' ItU, IlltHYlT UI1IA, llli;t3 .ttUV lUKLtft". Ul lilieness of auything; and then he further says: ' Tl, .hi shalt not bow down thyself to them nor servo them.' Fx. Hut the j will say, will you try to deprive us of bowing down i'" e those images of the heave nly hosts; when thoy remind us !!.' And we answer you, that it is not us that lias said,' you 'i.sl nut how down yourself before them: No! No! Uut God him: I :l".us it to you,. and says: ' ' into an ecstacy and was seen elevated several feet in the uir: and a statue of the mother of God, which was at his right, became quite resplendent and the bright rays it cast, lighted up the Saint's tao." (Mbsort book 9th. page.) Oli!
