The

Apostasy

of the Latter Times.

 

In which, (according to divine prediction) the world should wonder after the Beast, the Mystery of Iniquity should so far prevail over the Mystery of Godliness, whorish Babylon over the virgin-Church of Christ; as that the visible glory of the True Church should be much

clouded, the true unstained Christian Faith corrupted,

the purity of true worship polluted.

 

OR,

 

THE GENTILESí THEOLOGY

OF DEMONS, i.e. inferior divine powers:

Supposed to be mediators between God and man:

 

Revived in the Latter Times amongst Christians,

in worshipping of Angels, deifying and invocating of

Saints, adoring and templing of relics, bowing

down to images, worshipping of crosses, &c.

 

All which, together with

A true discovery of the nature, original, progress, of the

great, fatal, and solemn apostasy, are cleared.

I John 5: 21

Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
