600 Years Later: Rome’s Revisionist Re-Working of John Huss’ Martyrdom
The year 2015 marks the 600th anniversary of the burning to death of Jan Hus, or John Huss, accused of heresy, as commanded and brought about by the wicked leaders of the Roman Catholic institution. For six centuries the blood of this Christian martyr has been on the Papacy’s hands, nor will the stain of it ever be removed, for the Roman Whore will never change. She has been “drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus” through all her long history (Rev. 17:6).
But now – in this anniversary year of Huss’ death – the Roman Antichrist, Francis I, Jesuit priest and pope of Rome, has slyly begun the process of historical revisionism with regard to John Huss, thereby causing the Papacy’s ecumenical movement to lurch forward another step. What he is doing betrays the serpent’s subtlety, and naive “Protestants”, so enamoured with Francis and so desperate to rush headlong into the arms of the Harlot who persecuted their Protestant forefathers, are willing to let him do it with not even a whimper of protest.
Before we examine what Francis is doing, a brief look at the life of John Huss is necessary, as so little is known of him today. Then, against the backdrop of his life and martyrdom, what Francis is up to will appear all the more odious to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ and His truth.
Huss a Romish Priest; Studies the Scriptures and Wycliffe’s Writings
John Huss was born on the 6th July 1373, in Bohemia (today a part of the Czech Republic). This was over a century before the Protestant Reformation was to occur, and thus all of Europe was still Roman Catholic, apart from a few isolated groups, such as the Waldensians, holding the torch of the Gospel aloft in their high Alpine homes. Huss became a Romish priest, and was a devout Papist at this time.
When in 1402 he was appointed preacher of Bethlehem Chapel, in the city of Prague, he began to study the Scriptures so as to more effectively preach to his hearers; and by reading them he slowly began to question various aspects of what he had believed up until this time.
