Now "I" am VERY upset!!! Those two love Jesus with all their minds, hearts, souls and spirits ... and I am an Atheist.

I demand my rights of being destined for hell.

I'm not certain however if it's a Protestant hell or a Catholic hell ... but I still demand my rights.

You already showed me the wiki...the excerpt showed no Catholics being persecuted..
You said you had tons of records...but, evidently, these records are not showing Catholics being persecuted by the Roman Empire..you have shown me none...
"most history scholars" constitutes no such record...
Logic, which you deny, says that Catholics were not around when Christ referred to the seven (7) churches in Rev...not one did He identify as Catholic...

Take my advice go to confession you'll feel better.
In the early days of Catholicism Jesus was absent, as the confessional was a public affair. It was so harsh on the sinners that most Catholics waited until just before they died to confess.

Only after it was moved indoors so that the priests could demand Jesus to forgive "sins," did Jesus come to bat for the Catholics.

Shysterology!

WHAT is your point?
The Protestant religion didn't start until the 16th century ... so they would not BE the first ones to use the word Christian.
Whoever the first Christians were, they were NOT Protestants.

Christianity had its birth in Judaism. For a hundred years those within and without Christianity considered it a sect of Judaism, so close were the ties.
My point is that Catholics maintain that Peter was their first pope...therefore they are saying Catholics abounded during this time. However, as you pointed out, history shows this teaching to be false...so does their NABre pope approved Bible..and Christ...in Rev He referred not to any of he seven churches as Catholic..they were not there...period...

Roman Emperors Persecute Christians
"A.D. 30 to 313
Some accounts of Christian persecutions say that believers were thrown to wild animals in Roman amphitheaters—as depicted in this 19th century painting.
(Photograph of painting by Eugene Thirion copyright Bonhams, London, UK/Bridgeman Art Library)
The Roman Empire could be a dangerous place for early Christians, whose emerging doctrine flew in the face of established Roman religion.
Hostility toward Christians fluctuated throughout the empire due to local events or individual officials' actions. Periods of peace were shattered by incidents like the great Rome fire of A.D. 64, which Emperor Nero blamed on Christians, or by the threat of external invasion, which often caused communities to close ranks.
Christianity was punishable by death during this era, yet pardon was available to those willing to renounce their religion by offering sacrifice to the emperor or Roman gods. The offering of sacrifices became a particularly contentious issue and a kind of religious litmus test. Honoring Rome's gods and goddesses was considered a civic obligation and, at times, a law.
But many Christians refused to break with their faith. They were often executed and then hailed by their coreligionists as martyrs.
During Emperor Decius's short reign (A.D. 249 to 251), all Christians were required not only to offer sacrifice, but also to acquire official certificates from witnesses to their offering.
Perhaps the most comprehensive of such anti-Christian hostilities were the early fourth century persecutions by the co-emperors Diocletian and Galerius. Fortunately for the Christian faithful, they were to be the last.
In 313 Constantine I and Eastern Roman Emperor Licinius ratified the Edict of Milan, which finally ensured tolerance for Christians throughout the Roman Empire."

Not one word that comes close to Catholic.. there were no Catholics at least until 313!!!???

I don't believe that Peter or Jesus or God or any of the other fictitious characters in your religion or in any other religions existed or exists.

I leave it up to you Catholics and Protestants to carry on fighting over who Jesus and God loves ... and I must admit that you do a REAL good job of it ... "without a doubt." ... pun intended!

Persecution in the Early Church

"The Christian Martyrs' Last Prayer"
by Leon Gerome
Christian Persecution
In its first three centuries, the Christian church endured regular (though not constant) persecution at the hands of Roman authorities. This experience, and its resulting martyrs and apologists, would have significant historical and theological consequences for the developing faith.{4}
Among other things, persecution sparked the cult of the saints, facilitated the rapid growth and spread of Christianity, prompted defenses and explanations of Christianity (the "apologies"), and, in its aftermath, raised fundamental questions about the nature of the church.
The article that follows explores the history of persecution of the early church, some of the reasons behind it, and two important Christian responses to persecution: the glorification of martyrdom and the writings of the apologists."

St. Thomas and the Virgin's Girdle. This legend that the Apostle, St. Thomas, was absent when the Virgin's body and soul were reunited and transported to Heaven, and he refused to believe in her bodily assumption. He demanded that her grave be opened so that he might see whether her body still remained within. Finding the grave empty, he looked toward Heaven and there beheld the Virgin in bodily form, slowly being transported upward. To convince him of her assumption, Mary flung down to Thomas the belt, or girdle, from her dress.

Yo, Oxbow, you always come here and try to educate the dumbed down posters on this thread...
WHY??????
Man! if you have any inkling on what people should read, you should tell them about how to start a militia or tell them how to start one of their own.
Geez, don't get me wrong, I agree with you a lot, but you should spread REAL info on how to prepare and, how to get ready for the next continental civil war!

Believe it ... or not.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>>

As mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles, it is true that the followers of Christ early became known as "Christians" (cf. Acts 11:26). The name Christian, however, was never commonly applied to the Church herself. In the New Testament itself, the Church is simply called "the Church." There was only one. In that early time there were not yet any break-away bodies substantial enough to be rival claimants of the name and from which the Church might ever have to distinguish herself.

Very early in post-apostolic times, however. the Church did acquire a proper name--and precisely in order to distinguish herself from rival bodies which by then were already beginning to form. The name that the Church acquired when it became necessary for her to have a proper name was the name by which she has been known ever since-the Catholic Church.

No Christian wants any person to lose their soul, in fact we are to warn people to repent, thereby SAVING there soul,
NOT TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO GIVE UP A PRECIOUS GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE WITH THE LORD

Just as you now write that Jesus clings to your Protestant faith ... the early ex-Jews wrote whatever pleased them, whenever it pleased them.
It's all a huge muddle of conflicting religious literature ... enough to make the heads spin comparable to tops.
Of course the New Testament book of acts would have been written by Catholics.
The New Testament itself was not published until around 367 A.D.... which would mean that the words "new testament" as in the compiled book would not even have existed in 62-64 AD.
Much was written later, yet gave the impression that it was written at an earlier time.
Your response is ignored...it has nothing to do with the subject matter...

I have read the King James version of the Holy Bible and Though I might not be as well versed as the rest of all of you, I still know WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG in regards to the (un) holy, satanic, putrid, stinking, rotting,disgusting catholic church.

You have my props as to what you preach brother, and I don't mean that in a freemasonic or any other secret order that needs to be DESTROYED!
