03 – An Era of Spiritual Darkness

TWoman and Dragonhis chapter covers the history of the church from about 300 A.D. to around 1200 A.D., a time during which the church fell deeper and deeper into apostasy from the simplicity of the gospel, and the “mystery of iniquity”, the “man of sin”, stood in the temple of God, pretending to be God.

The papacy rose within this darkness and ruled Europe in a death grip, while the true church fled “into the wilderness”.

“The accession of the Roman Church to power marked the beginning of the Dark Ages. As her power increased, the darkness deepened.” (p. 55)

“The noon of the papacy was the midnight of the world.” (J.A. Wylie, The History of Protestantism, b. 1, ch. 4)
