Extract from "Thoughts on Popery"

I am afraid that neither Scripture, nor Reason, nor Experience, will warrant us in cherishing any, “hope in man” with regard to either the downfall of Popery, or any effectual hindrance to its progress. In one year, I think, as many as 20 of the principal Literati of Germany, with William Schlegel at their head, went over from Protestantism to popery; and some of those among ourselves who have of late years gone over to popery, have been men of considerable ability and literary standing....

A Lady Sold by Auction

“Three Bidders.” Will you listen, friends, for a moment, While a story I unfold; A marvelous tale, of a wonderful sale, Of a noble lady of old: How hand and heart, at an auction mart Soul and body, she was sold. Twas in the broad king’s highway. Near a century ago, That a preacher stood, though of noble blood Telling the fallen and low Of a Savior’s love, and a home above, And a peace that they all might know All crowded around to listen; They wept...

A Saved Soul

Knowest thou the value of a soul immortal? Behold the evening glory, worlds on worlds Amazing pomp? Redouble this amaze: Ten thousand add and twice ten thousand more Then weigh the whole : One soul outweighs them all, And calls the Great Magnificence Of unintelligent creation poor. ...

To Lose Your Wealth

Matthew 16:26. To loose your wealth is much. To lose your health is more. To loose your soul is such a loss that no man can rest. ...

Rome and the Bible

In order that all may know that the opposition of Rome to the Word of God is not ignorant and misled, but a determined enmity to God self-confessed, we give the following extract from an authoritative document. “ADVISE TO Pope JULIUS III given by the cardinals on his election to the THRONE. Year 1550.” The original document can be seen in the Paris National Library, fol B, No 1088, Vol II pp. 641-650. “Of all the counsels that we can offer your holiness we have kept the most neces...

The Pope's Declarations, also 666

    Canon Vaughan says “The purely negative assistance of the Holy Spirit, safeguarding a man from propounding error and falsehood, IS WHAT EVERY POPE ENJOYS when, as Supreme Teacher, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church.” Note reabove from the Christian. Does not every student know that several of the leading doctrines now held in the Roman fold have been condemned as heretical by one Pope, and afterwards defined as essential ...

Bought with a Price

I was bought with a price; tis a wonderful theme, For the Maker of all things came down to redeem, And He purchased my body, my spirit, my all, From the firm grasp of Satan, from under his thrall; I was bought with a price, from the hard iron yoke, From the tears and the groans that my anguish bespoke, From the arms of that monster who gloated to see How despairingly wretched his victim would be. I was bought with a price from the torments of hell, From that dread Lake of Fir...

God Answers Prayer

I know not by what methods rare, But this I know—God answers prayer I know not when He sends the word, That tells us fervent prayer is heard I know it cometh soon or late; Therefore we need to pray and wait, I know not if the blessing sought, Will come in just the guise I thought I leave my prayers with Him alone, Whose will is wiser than my own. Copied June 1919 ...

Thirty Pieces of Silver

Thirty pieces of Silver, For the Lord of life they gave Thirty pieces of Silver, Only the price of a Slave; But it was the priestly value, Of the Holy One of God. They weighed it out in the temple, The price of the Savior’s blood. Thirty pieces of Silver, Laid in Iscariot’s hand; Thirty pieces of Silver, And the aid of an armed Band, Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, Brought the humble Son of God, At midnight from the garden, Where His sweat had been like blood. Thirty pi...

Words of the Lord

The Word of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth seven times purified. Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away. The Word of the Lord endureth forever. ...
