12 Most Frequently Heard
In this chapter, we will face head-on the 12 most frequently heard charges against Alberto Rivera. Our approach will be to write out each charge one at a time and then follow it with our answer.
Please note that our answers shall be totally independent of any material or sources which originated from Rivera or Chick Publications.
Charge No. 1:
It is extreme to claim that the Jesuits infiltrate Protestant and other churches.
Answer: Why should it be considered extreme to claim that Roman Catholic Jesuits would infiltrate Protestant and other churches? Does not the Bible warn us that we must watch out for infiltrators who will creep into the true church of Jesus Christ "not sparing the flock?"
"For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock." Acts 20:29
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation..." Jude 4
Nino Lo Bello, in his book, The Vatican Papers —published by New English Library 1982, in the 19th chapter entitled, "The Vatican's Spy Network," makes it very clear that the Vatican has the most efficient and widespread spy network in the whole world. It outclasses even the Russian KGB. He states that this group of espionage agents came to be known by the popes as Sodalitium Pianum, and it includes every priest, nun and monk anywhere on earth.
He calculates the Pope's spy network to be in the region of 1.605 million persons consisting of diocesan priests, regular priests, seminarians, religious males and nuns, and that indeed, there are many full-time trained agents.
Now what do agents do but infiltrate other organizations, and what organizations would Catholic spies infiltrate if not other churches, especially true churches of Jesus Christ?
Permit me to quote a passage from the reliable old Protestant classic, The History of Protestanism by Rev. J.A. Wylie, page 412, Vol. II:
"There was no disguise they (the Jesuits) could not assume, and therefore, there was no place into which they could not penetrate. They could enter unheard the closet of the Monarch, or the Cabinet of the Statesman. They could sit unseen in convocation or General Assembly, and mingle unsuspected in the deliberations and debates.
"There was no tongue they could not speak, and no creed they could not profess, and thus there was no people among whom they might not sojourn, and no church whose membership they might not enter and whose functions they might not discharge. They could execrate the Pope with the Lutheran, and swear the Solemn League with the Covenanter."
Alberto is by no means the only person suggesting that Roman Catholic spies infiltrate other churches. Anyone who has read any reputable history books must come to the same conclusion.
Somewhere along the line we've swallowed the lie that Christians can peacefully co-exist with a Satanic religious system that is leading multiplied millions of souls to hell. Satan will not have it so! He constantly seeks to infiltrate his enemies that he may bring about their destruction.
Charge No. 2:
Rivera is wrong in saying that St. Ignatius of Loyola was the founder of the Jesuits.
Answer: The Encyclopedia Britannica Vol. XIII, page 1011, says that the Society Of Jesus is "a Roman Catholic order of clerks regular, founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540."
The same document refers to the Jesuit order as being "a principal agent of the Counter-Reformation" (1973 edition). The Britannica also tells us in Vol. XI, page 1096 that the Illuminati was "organized along Jesuit lines."
So then, this is not the wild notion of one man. It is undeniable history, available to anyone who chooses to pick up an Encyclopedia Britannica. If you are going to accuse Alberto of lying, you must make the same charge of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Why would the Encyclopedia Britannica lie about this? The simple fact is, they wouldn't. Both they and Rivera are telling the truth. And a great many people know it.
The difference between Alberto and most others is this:
The results of such actions are not a mystery to those who genuinely know God:
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." II Timothy 3:12
But the suffering is well worth it when combined with this heavenly promise:
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake." Luke 6:22.
