Popery – the Accommodation of Christianity to the Natural Heart

Edward Newenham Hoare (11 April 1802 – 1 February 1877) was an Irish Anglican priest: he was Dean of Achonry from 1839 to 1850; and Dean of Waterford from then until his death.

I have never heard of Edward Hoare until today. If he is anywhere typical of the average Protestant minister of the early 19th century, I would say that Protestant churches of that era must have been absolutely overflowing with the truth of the Gospel! How many Protestant ministers today are teaching the truths, principles and insights that Edward Hoare is teaching in his sermon on this post? Not many! Most preachers and evangelists today are deceived by the doctrine of Futurism. They speculate on who the Antichrist will be when he already has been and is. Protestants in the early 19th century knew who the Antichrist was! 

If you read this message with an open heart, you will learn some insights about why Roman Catholicism appeals to over a billion people in the world today. The current Pope Francis is busy making it even more appealing! It appeals to what the Bible tells us is of the world and not of the Father—the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.
