Constantine while the pretended adoption of Christianity was hailed as a great victory for the Church, it was also, ironically, the beginning of her ruin. From this date we can trace all the innumerable errors of the Roman Church -
1. Mariolatry
2. The mass
3. Purgatory
4. Limbo
5. The celibacy of priesthood
6. Adoration and worship of images
7. Indulgences
8. The infallibility of the Pope
9. The immaculate conception of Mary
10. And many, many other unscriptural errors.

Instead of a blessing it became the downfall of the organised church. Yet all the time during those dark ages which followed there was as always the body of true believers, members of the true Church, within the framework of the rapidly corrupting hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church.

Page 1 response to "Dan"
Roman Catholicism is the most powerful, widespread and subtle of all un-Biblical religious movements. It claims to be the only "true" church, and everything outside of it is labelled false and branded as heresy. All Protestants are "heretics" according to Romanism.
In reality the Roman Catholic hierarchy is not a church at all, but a gigantic religious, political organisation.
Because the average Protestant and multitudes of true believers are almost completely ignorant of the facts about Roman Catholicism, it is necessary to expose at the outset some of the most blatant of these.
First it must be recognised that the Church of Rome has unscripturally appropriated the name "Catholic" (signifying 'worldwide') to mean only its own church. The true name for the miscalled Catholic Church should be the Roman Church. In the past it was called the Roman Catholic Church. Today, however, particularly in the USA, but also in some other non-Roman-Catholic lands, the name "Roman" has been cunningly dropped and it wishes to be known only as the Catholic Church.
...the name "Roman" has been cunningly dropped and it wishes to be known only as the Catholic Church. The purpose of this is twofold: firstly, to reflect the basic doctrine that all other Churches are heretical and that no salvation is possible outside the Roman Catholic Church; and, secondly, the change in name further indicates the goal of making everybody a Roman Catholic and assuming authority over all the nations of the earth, both religiously and politically. The progress which is being made towards this end can be seen in the fact that America, an overwhelmingly Protestant nation, elected John F. Kennedy, a Roman Catholic, as President and chief executive. I am convinced that this act, instead of being a sign of tolerance and freedom from bigotry, indicated an ignorance on the part of the average citizen concerning the goal and purpose of the Roman Catholic Church ultimately to rule the entire world and subject every man, woman and child to the authority of one Super-Church.
The Roman Catholic Church claims to be the one true Church, dating back to the beginning, organised by Jesus Christ Himself, with the disciple Peter as the first Pope and Vicar of Christ of earth. However, while the true "Catholic" Church (the Body of Christ) was born at in eternity in the Mind of God, the Roman Catholic Church was not organised until about 313 AD.
Emperor Diocletian For the first three centuries the true Church was almost threatened with extinction, as the persecutions of pagan Rome increased in intensity under the reigns of the heathen Emperors from Nero to Diocletian. In 303 AD. Diocletian, determined once and for all to stamp out Christianity, issued a series of edicts, each more severe than the former, in his effort to exterminate Christianity. Christians were martyred by the thousands and the Roman prisons were filled to overflowing with believers and especially Christian ministers.
Then a most unexpected event took place. Constantine (the Great) became Emperor of Rome in the early part of the fourth century. During one of the crucial battles for conquest he is supposed to have seen in the sky a flaming cross (at midday) with the words inscribed in Greek: "By this sign conquer." It may have been pure imagination in an hour of desperation, or an optical illusion, but whatever it was he accepted it as word from Heaven that this cross was his key to victory. Accordingly he not only accepted Christianity but also made it the religion of the Roman Empire.

1.) Yawn.

2.) No citations. Whom are you plagiarizing here?

3.) "...the average Protestant and multitudes of true believers are almost completely ignorant of the facts about Roman Catholicism". No argument from me here. Which are you? An "average Protestant" or one of the "multitudes of true believers"?

194 The Apostles' Creed is so called because it is rightly considered to be a faithful summary of the apostles' faith. It is the ancient baptismal symbol of the Church of Rome. Its great authority arises from this fact: it is "the Creed of the Roman Church, the See of Peter the first of the apostles, to which he brought the common faith".13
195 The Niceno-Constantinopolitan or Nicene Creed draws its great authority from the fact that it stems from the first two ecumenical Councils (in 325 and 381). It remains common to all the great Churches of both East and West to this day.
196 Our presentation of the faith will follow the Apostles' Creed, which constitutes, as it were, "the oldest Roman catechism". The presentation will be completed however by constant references to the Nicene Creed, which is often more explicit and more detailed.
197 As on the day of our Baptism, when our whole life was entrusted to the "standard of teaching",14 let us embrace the Creed of our life-giving faith. To say the Credo with faith is to enter into communion with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and also with the whole Church which transmits the faith to us and in whose midst we believe:
This Creed is the spiritual seal, our heart's meditation and an ever-present guardian; it is, unquestionably, the treasure of our soul.1
That is a lie...Christ did not refer to any of the seven churches in Rev as Catholic..because there were none...

And: From Catholic Answers
The ApostlesÂ’ Creed is not found in the Bible. The ApostlesÂ’ Creed was not written by the apostles. Rather, it was written at least 150 years after the apostles had all died.

The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
Show me where it says that Christ is God....

"thus the mystery"....but then think you have defined the "mystery"?
Which is it?
Where did you get your information from if it is a mystery?
Are you holding out on us and have talked to "God" and "He" revealed "His mystery" to you and you alone?
Can you admit that you really don't know who this "God" is and only believe you do based upon other men?
Honest Rose.....all it is, is honesty.
The Holy trinity by human standards,is amused of our FAITH.

She was running it about Catholics regarding Mary as divine and told me to ask a priest. That hubris stood on it's own "merit".

The mass predates Constantine.

Just pray and be the best wife and Christian you can be. Do not get involved with telling Catholics what our Bible is saying. I know you're a sweet devout person, Kay. But the Bible is a product of the Catholic Church. It was gathered and installed despite the fact that Our Lord never commanded we compile one. Its difficult to see past the propaganda fueled stereotypes about the CC..
Liam

It's,statements like that which make people think the bible was,cooked up in a,basement

It's,the WORD OF GOD ..put down by His,disciples ...or the RCC made it up and its your word .....which is it ??

They way you all discuss it it's either NOT SUFFICIENT....or you guys,
Made it up ..

The Early Church put the scriptures together ..put into books as,we know it ...once the WORD got away into Common language Liam ..it became a force ...for THE WORLD TO KNOW,God .it cannot or SHOULD NOT BE PUT BACK IN THE BASEMENT owned by your Church ...

Did God use the,EARLY CHURCH ..YES ..BUT HE MOST CERTAINLY USED THOSE WHO BELIEVE HIS,WORD AND SprEAD IT......as,believers were told to .

Nope...it only identifies Jesus Christ as our Lord...which he is as in:

Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
