"Have No Part in People's Sinful Religious Ways"
(2 John 6-11)

Earlier this year, I was reading an online Holy Bible on the website: (http://www.holybible.com). As I was reading, I noticed that there were additional 'defender's notes' underneath several verses of Scripture. After I clicked on to these 'defender note' links I found that this website contained information which tries to contradict the known fact that the Mother of Harlots written about in Revelation chapters seventeen and eighteen in the Holy Bible is the Roman Catholic Church.

● The source of the following commentary found on the website: (http://www.holybible.com) is from the KJV Defenders Study Bible by Dr. Henry Morris, Ph.D.

The following 'defender's notes' taken from the above mentioned website are basically an attempt by the writer to defend the Roman Catholic System. His comments are falsely interpreted teaching about the true information written in Scriptures in chapter seventeen of the book of Revelation in the Holy Bible.

Revelation 17:5

"Babylon is referred to several times in Revelation as an actual city (Revelation 14:8; 16:19; 18:10), and there is no reason to call it "Rome" or "Catholicism" or something else, as many have done'.

'The Babel of Nimrod, not the Babylon of Nebuchadnezzar, is actually the "mother of harlots and abominations'.

Revelation  17:9

'Many commentators have alleged the "seven heads" to be the seven-hilled city of Rome, hence deducing the great harlot to be the Roman Catholic Church. However, such identification is impossible. Many cities have seven hills, and Rome actually has more. Besides, the Catholic Church does not sit on the hills of Rome, for its headquarters are in Vatican City. Furthermore, a "hill" (Greek bounos) is not a "mountain" (Greek oros). The seven "mountains" are quite clearly expounded in the next verse as seven kings and/or kingdoms'.

(sample of deception only)

● My comment: I fully oppose the deceptive doctrine which is taken from the website: (http://www.holybible.com).

The person who wrote the version of defense of the Roman Catholic Church has not convinced me that Mystery Babylon is not the Roman Catholic Church. On close examination we find much evidence to support the fact that Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of Earth is indeed none other than the Roman Catholic Church of the world.

"Come I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication." Ref: Revelation 17:1, 2.

● Comment: The great harlot which sits on many waters surrounding many countries and all the continents on earth is indeed the Roman Catholic Church. Her deceptive teachings are presently tirelessly deceiving people in Italy and other European countries and in Asia including the Philippines and Singapore, and in North America including USA as well as further south in Mexico as well as in South America including Brazil and in the southern pagan land down under, Australia.....click.

Kings and other national leaders have certainly shared in the sins of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). The RCC has prostituted herself with the ways of the world and the ruler of this world, Satan and has gathered multitudes with the word 'love'.

I recently saw a photograph taken from the time that a former pope lived. The pope of the day was seen to be shaking hands with none other than Adolf Hitler.

The sins of the RCC with its involvement in war crimes during World War Two have also come to my attention time and again, so I plan to investigate the matter in depth so that I may know more detailed truth about this.

"The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication." Revelation 17:4. I also advise you to read Revelation 18:15-19.

● The costliness of the Roman Catholic Churches' gold, jewelry and garments has made men rich in earthly wealth.....click.

The colours of the garments worn by priests and the pope of the RCC are scarlet and purple, and the priests use a golden cup. If my memory serves me correctly I believe I have also seen a photograph of a former pope holding in his hand a very costly cup adorned with what looked to be precious stones and pearls.

The RCC has also committed many crimes including murder in the form of war crimes and punishment of non-conformists to the RCC's sinful ways and standards. The RCC is certainly of the world, and she has a history of persecuting and murdering peoples including saints, (not to mention her molestation of children and parishioners).

Revelation 18:24

Multitudes of people; people from many countries and speakers of various languages in the world have all learned the very same multilingual deceptive teachings of the RCC.....click.

Also worth noting is that the Vatican City is actually small in size and is located within the great city of Rome. Rome has had an extensive history as being the great city which reigned over rulers of the earth, ( the eternal city in fact).

The RCC has experienced a history of exercising powerful authority on earth as she invaded and ruled more than just one country. She is of the world and certainly not the true church of Lord Jesus Christ, (the one made without hands).

She says in her heart, 'I sit as queen and am no widow and will not see sorrow' (ref: Revelation 18:7).' Does not the RCC claim to be the bride (queen) married to the king, Lord Jesus?

Revelation 17:15, 18

● Let the faithful followers of Lord Jesus remember to speak out against the works of darkness. Ephesians 5:11-13.

Be very cautious when or if reading online bibles as the additions which I found that someone had made to add to the true word of God changed and defamed the meaning of His words.

Revelation 22:18, 19, Acts 17:11. 1 Corinthians 4:6.....Selah
