DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER OF THE TWO SYSTEMS.

In leading proof of the Babylonian character of the Papal Church, the first point to which I solicit the reader's attention, is the character of Mystery which attaches alike to the modern Roman and the ancient Babylonian systems. The gigantic system of moral corruption and idolatry, described in this passage under the emblem of a woman with a "golden cup in her-hand " (Rev. xvii. 4), "making all nations drunk with the wine of her fornication" (Rev. xvii. 2 ; xviii. 3), is divinely called " Mystery, Babylon the Great " (Rev. xvii. 5). That Paul's " Mystery of iniquity," as described in 2 Thess. ii. 7, has its counterpart in the Church of Rome, no man of candid mind, who has carefully examined the subject, can easily doubt. Such was the impression made by that account on the mind of the great Sir Matthew Hale, no mean judge of evidence, that he used to say, that if the apostolic description were inserted in the public " Hue and Cry," any constable in the realm would be warranted in seizing, wherever he found him, the Bishop of Rome as the Head of that " Mystery of iniquity." Now, as the system here described is equally characterised by the name of " Mystery," it may be presumed that both passages refer to the same system. But the language applied to the New Testament Babylon, as the reader cannot fail to see, naturally leads us back to the Babylon of the ancient world.

Alexander Hislop's great work exposes the Roman Catholic Crowd for what it really is, a Pagan Religion disguised in Christian attire!

Hyslop was a Catholic-hating bigot whose so-called "research" was shoddy at best.
