Now, will you answer my question that's been left hanging out there for days?
Do you have any written evidence of the existence of protestant evangelical fundamentalists from the period immediately following the completion of the book of Revelation until the reformation 1300+ years later? Did Christianity not exist for 1300 years?
My Christian brothers and sisters were persecuted until 313 AD when your founder, Constantine declared his form and your form of "christianity" as the state religion of the Roman Empire. From 313 AD to 1517 AD true Christianity became so corrupted by the Roman Empire Catholic church it no longer resembled the church Jesus Christ died for.

In January 313, Constantine legalized Christianity with an edict that read:

"let this be so in order that the divine grace which we have experienced in such manifold ways, may always remain loyal to us and continue to bless us in all we undertake, for the welfare of the empire."

"For the welfare of the empire". What does that mean AnthonyMN?

Christianity was tolerated and even supported by the Roman State where conflict was not apparent. However, it was only one of many acceptable religions. Constantine was so superstitious that he feared offending any god, he worshiped the sun as a deity, and was only accepted into the Christian Church on his death bed.

- Voters?

Votes are only tabulated at the Vatican when men have to decide who will be "God's Vicar on Earth".

Please tell me the last time you were able to "Vote" on doctrine or eschatology.

More pointedly - when was the last time you chose to believe in a doctrine that was presented to you? You know - the moment you got to choose what you wanted to believe or not?

It is the Sumerian tradition as an interpretation of the oldest remaining texts of humanity and continued through the gnostic tradition of christianity that Earth was the site for a prison of the very worst and evil beings of a higher order race from the a nearby star system.

More Self KM?

If you are not going to promote it, don't you think it would be better to not mention actions realted to it.

Yeah - maybe you should just post actions that shows Jesus helping you in every way conceivable, in order for you to show how much YOU didn't do squat when you compiled your belief.

Yep - I think you should.

Benedict XVI’s Plea: Put the Poor at the Heart of Catholic Life

March 25, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI clearly puts care for the poor at the heart of the Catholic Church. In his first encyclical, Deus Caritas Est (God is Love), he said three things make the Church the Church: Proclaiming the Gospel, celebrating the Sacraments and caring for the poor. This love of the poor is an essential and defining activity of the Church. Benedict declares,“Love for widows and orphans, prisoners, and the sick and needy of every kind is as essential to her [the Church] as the ministry of the sacraments and preaching of the Gospel. The church cannot neglect the service of charity anymore than she can neglect the sacraments and the word”

SaaaaWING and a miss.

"for the welfare of the empire" refers to the conflicts occurring between the Catholic Christian Churches and the gnostic sects who were preaching heresy as well as the Arian heresy. Some hefty studying on your part may clear this up, although I doubt you have the attention span.

St. John completed Revelation around AD 90. Do you have anything from your "brothers and sisters" that remotely resembles your evangelical fundamentalist beliefs between then and AD 313? I can produce volumes of writings from Christians during that period who held the beliefs Catholics hold today. If your "brothers and sisters" held evangelical fundamentalist beliefs, where are the writings?

Also, did "Christianity" go into hiding after AD 313 for 1200 years? Is your argument that the lack of evidence means they were there all along? lol.

You keep saying "New Jerusalem", I keep telling you "New Israel".

Now you're going on and on about the "cathedrals and Chair of Peter" nonsense. As I said, if you refuse to critically examine what it is you believe you're simply a bigot.

Whoever calls himself a Christian, Benedict [XVI] said, must be “the last in the opinion of the world.”

He continued: "Those who in this world and throughout history are perhaps driven ahead and arrive in first place, must be aware of the danger they are in; they must look ever more to the Lord… they must measure up their responsibility for others, become those who serve, who in reality place themselves at the feet of others, who bless and are in turn blessed.”

He added:“I think all of this must pass through the heart, if we look to the One who is the firstborn of creation, born in a manger and died on the Cross. The place before him [is] the right place, the place from which history is always assigned to us. Critically, responsibility is to Him, responsibility for love, justice and for the truth."

In history, the Cross of Jesus was proven to be “the last place," Benedict XVI continued. But John the Evangelist painted this “extreme humiliation” of the Cross as “the true exaltation.”
