Excerpt from The Ruin of Rome, or an Exposition Upon the Whole Revelation: Wherein Is Plainly Shewed and Proved, That the Popish Religion, Together With All the Power and Authority of Rome, Shall Decay More and More Throughout All the Churches of Europe, and Shall Be Utterly Destroyed Before the End of the World
That so plain a discovery of the sense and meaning of the sacred predictions relating to the doctrines and authority of Rome, should have been made at so distant a period, and while exist 1ng Circumstances appeared so little to favour their accomplish ment, is truly astonishing, and claims our serious attention to the matters discussed in this treatise; which breathes so ardent a zeal for the interests and welfare of genuine religion, and so decided and effectual an opposition to its corruptions, as must deeply affect the mind of every Christian.
