Your still a long way from all "reformers". It is not very prudent to speak in absolutes.
Yes a number of the protestant reformers did write about the papacy being manifestation of the anti-christ. But my point is that you can not say that all did. Also, you are missing the subtlety of arguments of the reformers. At least Calvin did not think that the Pope was the antichrist. If you actually read his writings, the views of other "reformers" is similar, you will actually see that he refers to the Roman Catholic church as the kingdom of the anti-christ and well why don't we just use Calvins own words.
quote:Daniel and Paul foretold that Antichrist would sit in the temple of God (Dan. 9:27; 2 Thess. 2:4); we regard the Roman Pontiff as the leader and standard-bearer of that wicked and abominable kingdom.
Though the Pope is the leader of this kingdom he is not the antichrist himself. Cuz, that would be silly. That would mean all popes are the anti-christ. I thought this anti-christ dude was supposed to have some sort of spectacular powers. If Pope Francis is the anti-christ I am going to put my money on the big JC. He is going to kick some satanic ass.
Is it going to be pay-per-view?
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
