      having participated in so many debates with the Beast's minions for
      so many years- is neither able to correctly identify them, nor their

      Those who, in this day and age, claim to be Reformed and part of the
      true Body of Christ, yet deny the man of sin to be in their midst,
      have rejected the testimony of the Church through the ages...deeming
      themselves wiser than the Protestant Reformers, the Puritans, and a
      host of others.

      White could set the world on fire with his debating skills on the
      Doctrines of Grace, his inability (or refusal) to correctly identify
      the whore, and the Beast she rides, despite the fact that he
      interacts with them as much as he does, nullifies all......for God
      wills that the enemy of Christ and His elect Church be recognized by
      them! Scripture outlines the birth, growth, deeds, and demise of
      the Beast for a specific reason: because it is the elect that do
      battle with him; in fact, the Beast is said to *wear out* the
      saints, due to the *duration* of the persecution, torture, and
      extermination they were to face.

      Church Mystery Babylon.
      > George Downame and Thomas Brightman are but two 17th century

      has succesfully removed the Pope from prophecy, point by point.

      That give me food for thought.
