Fables & Myths: Installment #1
Fables and Myths
Ellis H. Skolfield, August 23, 1927 - April 26, 2015 
Enter the Jesuits: In the 16th and 17th centuries, Reformation leaders were calling the Roman Catholic hierarchy the “Whore of Babylon” of Rev 17. To stop it, the Roman Catholic Church began a counter‐reformation, during which two Jesuit priests were commissioned to initiate doctrines that would derail the reformation, and they almost succeeded.
FIRST, IN 1591 AD - THE FUTURIST VIEW: Developed and popularized by Fr. Ribera, a Jesuit. His view claimed that Revelation would not be fulfilled until the end of the Christian Era. Ribera taught:
THEN IN 1614 AD - THE PRETERIST View: Created for the same reason by Alcazar, another Jesuit, who claimed the Olivet Discourse and the book of Revelation were fulfilled by the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD!
Preterism, as this view is called, supports “Replacement Theology” (the idea that God broke covenant with the physical Seed of Abraham after the Cross and the Church is the only Israel of this era). Despite the evidence of their own eyes (the new nation of Israel chock full of returned Jews), this dubious view is still accepted by many evangelical churches.
Both of the above views were initiated by Jesuits to derail the Reformation, nevertheless, both views are now considered acceptable doctrine by most Protestant churches. Problem is, both go directly against Scripture and history.
