Alberto Rivera

Fact and Fantasy Compared – Forty Years of Fraud

by Roy Livesey

Introduction by Shaun Willcock

Alberto Rivera is the principal character in the “Alberto” series of picture books, published by Chick Publications in California.  They claim to be based upon the life story of a man who said he was an ex-Jesuit priest converted to Christ, and on other information about Roman Catholicism and the Jesuits which he supplied.  When asked to make a statement concerning the validity of his supposed life story, Rivera published a declaration that what was written by “JTC” (Jack T. Chick) was “a true and actual account.

But this was a lie. Continue reading

The Truth About


Alberto Rivera

(The following article consists of two previous articles, published in 1989-1990 and 1997.  Although many years have elapsed since then and Alberto Rivera died in 1997, the comic books purporting to be based on his life story continue to be published and circulated worldwide in their millions.  Thus the need to maintain a witness against the lies and deceptions of this man, a false Christian and one of history’s most successful religious frauds, remains as great now as it did then; and for as long as the false “life story” of Albert Rivera remains in print and continues to deceive multitudes, it will be necessary to expose him.  On this the Bible is very clear: 1 Tim. 1:19,20; 2 Tim. 4:14,15; 3 Jn. 9,10; Rom. 16:17,18; 2 Cor. 11:26; Eph. 5:11; etc.)

  Alberto Rivera is known to many worldwide as “an ex-Jesuit priest converted to Christ”, particularly through the comic books that have been published by Chick Publications, the most well-known being Alberto.  Bible Based Ministries, like many other ministries around the world, used to support his stand against Rome, because he did reveal many true things about the Roman Catholic institution.
