Message Subject The Second Coming of Christ, Who Is Also the Antichrist has arrived!

did you know part of what spurred the 500 years of bloody war between the Catholic Church and the Protestants was the idea that the Pope was the anti-Christ, Andreas Helwig preached that the title on the Pope's crown, Vicarius_Filii_Dei, added up in Roman Numerals to '666', which it does not.

The earliest extant record of a Protestant writer on this subject and addressing the phrase Vicarius Filii Dei is Andreas Helwig in 1612. In his work Antichristus Romanus he took fifteen titles in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin and computed their numerical equivalents in those languages, arriving at the number 666 mentioned in the Book of Revelation. Out of all these titles, he preferred to single out Vicarius Filii Dei, used in the Donation of Constantine, for the reason that it met "all the conditions which [Cardinal] Bellarmine had thus far demanded." Besides being in Latin, the title was "not offensive or vile," but rather was "honorable to this very one." (The sum works as follows: VICARIVS FILII DEI = 5+1+100+1+5+1+50+1+1+500+1 = 666, where 'U' is taken as 'V', see U for interchangeability reasoning).
