THE AFTERMATH OF THE TRACTARIANS COO754
We see the weakening of the Protestant witness and the strengthening of the papal propaganda, in this period, especially in Britain and America. Only a person unacquainted with this titanic struggle, this seismic theological shift, will deny the obvious. One of the most obvious shifts that occurred across the board in Protestant churches was the change in the identity of the Antichrist. Entering the nineteenth century every Bible believing Protestant denomination believed that the Papacy was the Antichrist. Whatever men write, teach, and preach,it cannot be denied that the Papal Dominion entered the nineteenth century identified as Antichrist; and left it to become the co-belligerent of Evangelicals in the United States in the twentieth century.
