Whatever Happened To The Protestant Reformation?

From the late Pastor Ken Silva
"...However, in what directly concerns the topic of this work, the false system of religion taught by the Church of Rome, we need to remember that Evangelicalism finds its roots in the Protestant Reformation. And history shows us that those Reformers would end up living out the unshakable truth of these insightful comments from William Wilberforce, an English reformer and anti-slavery activist in the early 1800’s:
Christianity has always thrived under persecution. At such times she has no lukewarm professors, no adherents concerning whom it is doubtful to what party they belong. The Christian is then reminded at every turn that His Master’s kingdom is not of this world (as cited in Nick Harrison, 365 WWJD?, p.75).
These courageous men – many of whom were murdered by orders from Roman Popes – never had the option of so-called “dialogue” over doctrinal issues with Rome that so many of our current Evangelical leaders have been seduced by. Instead these Reformers, who for the most part were themselves Roman Catholic priests working from within the Church of Rome, trying to bring its leaders back onto the narrow road, were simply rounded up and killed to silence them. And amazingly enough, not only just to silence them, but also in an attempt to keep the revealed Word of God–found in the Holy Scriptures–out of the hands of the laity.

Are we really supposed to believe this is the one true Church on the face of the earth–headed by the successor of the Apostle Peter–the Pope? Do we really think that it was God Who wanted these kinds of things done? For do you not realize: If the Church of Rome really is the true Church, then logically we would be forced to this very conclusion. As we continue you will plainly come to see Rome’s devious plan regarding the so-called ecumenical movement exposed as the subtle deception that it actually is.
And since our Evangelical Protestant leaders continue to give great lip service to what the Reformers did for the Church, do we really think that our Lord wishes His precious Body to then go back to the idolatrous Harlot that the Church of Rome truly is? How pathetic it was to see an article in a recent issue of Christianity Todaypraising Pope John Paul II–a heretic who lived in the lap of luxury–and accepted worship from men as their “Holy Father,” all the while claiming the title “Vicar of Jesus Christ,” both of which are titles that can only be applied to Almighty God himself! We must ask ourselves: Is that how Christ Jesus of Nazareth lived?
Our blessed Lord clearly told us in Scripture Who His true Vicar is:
Howbeit when hethe Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. (John 16:13-15).
If you are a true Christian, and as you are made aware of these issues, it should begin to stir you. You should be able to feel the Lord’s anger rise within you when His Church is being raped by these men from Rome who have – Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:(2 Timothy 3:5a). Until we as His true Christians finally begin to rise against the muddled ideals and the false spirit behind the ecumenical movement (see- 1 John 4:1) – rather than running to join it as with the misguided “modern” Church Growth Movement – then people will continue to go to Hell in unprecedented numbers in our lifetime."
