Cardinal John Newman’s quote about The AntiChrist

He prompts you what to say, and then listens to you, and praises you, and encourages you. He bids you mount aloft. He shows you how to become as gods. Then he laughs and jokes with you, and gets intimate with you; he takes your hand, and gets his fingers between yours, and grasps them, and then you are his.”

J. H. Newman, The AntiChrist

The world seems to go on as usual. There is nothing of heaven in the face of society, in the news of the day there is nothing of heaven; in the faces of the great, or of the rich, or of the busy, there is nothing of heaven; in the words of the eloquent, or the deeds of the powerful, or the resolves of the lordly, or the pomps of the wealthy…Let us ever bear in mind this divine truth: the more secret God’s hand is, the more powerful– the more silent, the more awful.”

J.H.Newman

Do you think he is so unskillful in his craft, as to ask you openly and plainly to join him in his warfare against the truth? …He prompts you what to say, and then listens to you, and praises you, and encourages you. He bids you mount aloft. He shows you how to become as gods. Then he laughs and jokes with you, and gets intimate with you; he takes your hand, and gets his fingers between yours, and grasps them, and then you are his.”

J.H. Newman – 1890 – The Times of AntiChrist
