“St. Patrick of Ireland (389) was nothing but “Patrick” (If he had known they would call him “Saint,” he would have kicked someone in the britches, including the Pope!). Pat was not “St. Patrick’s Day” and the “wearing of the green.” St. Patrick was a hell-fire and damnation, new birth, premillennial preacher. He went out into the woods of Ireland, beat on a drum, and when the natives gathered, he got on top of that drum and yelled at them, “You must be born again,” and preached to them John 1:12 from a Latin Textus Receptus, not from a vaticanus or a Jerome’s Latin Vulgate. The Latin Textus Receptus was a translation from the same Greek text that the King James Bible is from, exactly as the Norwegian, Swedish, British, Scotch, Irish, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian Bibles were copies of the Textus Receptus which the popes tried to burn. The Vaticanus (before 400 AD), Sinaiticus (about 350 AD), and Alexandrinus (about 450 AD) are counterfeit works heavily influenced by Gnostics and unbelievers. These are also the basis of the modern bible perversions (ASV, RSV, NIV, et al.)
Premillennial means that St. Patrick was a Bible believer who didn’t need to spiritualize or explain away all the many verses that deal with the Second Coming of Christ and the literal, physical, earthly, kingdom of Heaven promises given to Israel and shared with the Christ’s church at the Second Advent. On the other hand, “Augustine wrote THE CITY OF GOD (413-426) claiming that the Roman Catholic religion is of God, Roman Catholics are the “true,” “spiritual” Israel, and that God’s promises to Israel are only fulfilled in the “church,” not the literal Israel.” Explaining the Bible this way involves so much word play that a Catholic doesn’t believe that he/she can read any scripture (Hebrews 7:27 or 10:5-14, for example) and understand the sixth grade English without “mother church” interpreting it for them.
