"Thirty Years in Hell"... OR ..."From Darkness to Light."BYEx-Priest, Bernard Fresenborg,Who for thirty long years tread the slippery and deceitful path of abhorrentCatholicism, but who to-day stands at the Vatican's door, with the torch ofProtestant wisdom, and denounces Popery with a tongue livid with the power of aliving God.Like a Meteor From God's Throne,

Author's Announcement.A structure of enlightenment is to be built in this land, which to finish, every manof intellectual power must contribute.The structure which I refer to, is the structure of "SPIRITUAL LIBERTY," as thespiritual part of man must have room to expand and grow the same as any otherGod-given privilege that man is blessed with.Unless we grow in faith we become dwarfs in the worship of God.Those who go forth into the world and profess to be the teachers of men should begiants of intellect and fully prepared to contribute to this monument of"SPIRITUAL LIBERTY."

These giants are the "KNIGHTS OF THE SPIRIT," who stand upon the summit ofrighteousness and proclaim an intelligent God to a sinful world.Many say they do not feel that they possess the ability to contribute to thisstructure of "SPIRITUAL LIBERTY," but I say, none who possess the power toreason are exempt, for if they cannot place in the arch of this structure the golden"key-stone" that shall securely bind this structure together, they can carry mortar orstones, which is as imperative in this structure, as the polished "Cap stone" whichshall complete this great pyramid of emancipation.I do not crave to have my name engraven in bold letters upon the "Cap stone" ofthis structure, but I do desire to contribute my mite towards the completion of thisgrand structure of free thought, which, when completed, will stand out upon thehorizon of time as a towering monument to Christ and his cause.Roman Catholicism, as taught by our modern priests and inspired by the papalpower at Rome is naught but the distant rumblings of an antiquated chariot ofdarkness, as the teachings of this MONARCHICAL creed has naught in view butthe enslavement of reason for the financial gain and benefit of the "Robed" few whoclaim the right to think for the masses.For thirty long years I was bound to this bewitching spirit of darkness by thechords of superstition and never dared to look above my blind superiors forwisdom, until a "something" which I will call "fate" broke the windows of mymental dungeon and permitted the light of "SPIRITUAL LIBERTY" to filter throughmy being which awoke "reason and common sense" from her long sleep oflethargy.Now, what I once thought "Holy" I detest as abominable; What I once worshipped,I now hate.It is not the glitter of gold nor the applaudits of the protestant world that I crave,but it is the Master's approval that I desire. Therefore I deem it my duty to bothGod and mankind to proclaim to the world what I know of the awfulness ofRoman Catholicism, and I know enough to make my poor soul often wonder if Ishall ever be permitted to sing with the blest around that GREAT WHITETHRONE in the New Jerusalem.As you peruse these pages, I pray that you may whisper a prayer to God in mybehalf, as I am now fifty-six years old and only a child in wisdom.With pity for the blind hosts of Catholicism and a prayer upon my lips for theirdeliverance from the trenches of paganism, I dedicate this book to the world as

coming from a heart which poured out its youth's vitality upon the barren fields ofsuperstition, and wasted its vigor in serving only the god of myths. With a feelingof brotherly love for the entire world, I am,Yours in His name,BERNARD FRESENBORG.
