The beginning of the Catholic Church and,
therefore, Christianity is not what religious preach. Long past
the supposed presence
of Jesus Christ it was through the Council of Nicaea that Constantine brought it
about. It happened by his word and power.
Nicaea was where the
Roman Emperor called a council of men into his presence. They came
from around the empire in 325AD. They meeting comprised literate and illiterate
delegates and was of such variance in religious idealism that it is difficult to
assess what actually happened there. No written
records were kept or, if they were, they were destroyed by later Catholic
With memory of reincarnation and a link to God the facts are
that religions survive on the laws they implement and the rules they use to
control their constituents.
Uncovering the facts was not difficult and they prove
that the things that the religious organisation rely
on is faith. With dubious origins in a medley of mayhem, power and
necromancy the claims of a virgin birth and a resurrected Savior, for which
there is no physical evidence,
scholars have over the years worked hard to make religions credible. The
collection of men that comprised the Council failed to decide on much at all.
They appear to have been confused by the claims of a Trinity God and the
arrival of Jesus Christ, from some accounts. Yet it managed to provide the
foundation of the Roman Catholic Church born from Constantine's will and
desire for more power.
Who was present when Constantine established the religion
A painting of the delegates survived as a snapshot of the
meeting. It allows insight insight into the wretchedness of it. Arthur Stanley,
theologian and Dean of
Westminster, published his work on the make-up of the council in 1864. He
pieced together evidence from the image, documents and other things
available at that time. He noted the following points:-
1. Old works like this were often
corrupted by later 'do-gooders' in religious organizations and the public forum
to protect the establishment. Old manuscripts are, therefore, more precious
than late publications.
2. There were opponents to each other from conflicts
and religious differences. While the idea of a unified future was profitable
most of the delegates lacked the logic, design and politics for productive
conformity. Many came because of the summons and threats of
retaliation if they did not show up. The emperor's "highly posted officials,
scribes, leaders and bishops" had persecuted and silenced them before.
3. This odd, heated meeting was held in the street with
onlookers and interjections of all types watching on. It led to conflicts among
the public who would have viewed this as a major event in their community and
broadcast news items of events. The diversity of views
among the delegates would have also been contentious. Below is a list of just
a few of them so as to convey an impression of the whole:
Arians: These sunrise worshipers were already in favor of
the Son of the sun or the son of man being represented in the person of the
Pharaoh, Moses, Apollo, Chrishna, and others. Arius was described as the
'madman from area' or 'mars'. He was one of those murdered before the
Church of Egypt and Assyria: The delegates from these two
places were "shrill and able to persuade some issues their way".
Alexandria: Its bishop was the most learned and
titled pope or papa, as so were all Greek presbyters and Latin bishops. Pope
did not apply to the Bishop of Rome until the 7thCAD
(De Origin nom Papae, p60. cited Stanley)
Copts of Egypt: They hampered proceeding by not speaking
Greek. Among them was Potammon whose name means dedicated to Ammon, an Egyptian
Pharaoh and Paphuntius, whose name means dedicated to Nut (a version of Isus).
Both had been persecuted and tortured and their right eyes ripped out by a sword
and the sockets seared with a red hot iron. The latter's left leg was hamstrung.
Syria: The delegates more civilized and better
educated. The leader Eusthatius was persecuted, however, as both Heathen and
Christian while his surviving work is The Witch of Endor.
Caesarea: From here Bishop Eusebius was the Clerk of the
Imperial Closet and close to Constantine. His works included a book
fashioned on the Hexapla of Origin. Potammon, who knew him from the persecutions,
claimed he had sacrificed to an idol to avoid punishment. His support came
from the Palestinian bishops. Some labelled him a hypocrite. Atanasius called
him an Arian.
India: John the Persian brought with him a band of eleven
from this region and they were the only ones without mutilation or injuries.
They apparently carried the Chrisna doctrine. This fits with the claim that
Christianity is derived from Chrishna.
Neceasarea: Its Bishop Paul brought 4 families who were
practicing Arians. Their leader, Moses, was credited with miracles.
While this is but a small section of the make up of the
Meeting it demonstrates the diversity and brings to the fore the pain and
suffering inflicted on them by order of Constantine. They came now into his
presence to do his bidding. One wonders about the hate and discomfort they
bore in his presence.
Mixture of Delegates from All Corners of the Empire
The mixture was at odds with each other and one wonders how
a consensus of opinion was reached - or was it?.
Many were intimidated, frightened, uneducated and poverty stricken as opposed
to the richest and best in Constantine's Service
The Council comprised Two Halves - the educated rich and
the uneducated poor. One can only speculate on how they viewed each other.
The one thing they had in common is that they were all
sun worshipers and Islamic in their beliefs. This is proven elsewhere.
On the one hand the rough, simple and almost illiterate men
who had borne so much demonstrated passion for their faiths.
They also had little knowledge of their rights. Disunited and unmotivated they
were no match for the well versed educated officers on the other side. The
latter sided with Constantine and presented a unified, educated, confident front.
They demonstrated logic as well as knowledge ofpolitics. They were also
comfortable in the emperor's presence while being coached by him or his bishop.
The tone of the Assembly was set by the opening ceremony
when the illiterate, clothed mainly in rags, stood alongside the well dressed
highest officials in the government and the Imperial Roman Religion. The former
fidgeted in the heat and were obviously hot and smelly as they waited
impatiently for Constantine. The latter were clean (possibly recently bathed),
perfumed, well dressed and attended by secretaries
and other assistants. They were confident, calm and full of expectation.
Constantine's arrival was with pomp and splendor, tall and
handsome and a successful conqueror of many he was also surrounded by guards,
preceded by his insignia and secure in his office. He was also confident in
his purpose as he had waited and planned for a long time for this event.
Bedecked in his purple robe over the uniform of
a general, bejeweled and with his court in tow he towered over the Assembly
and stood like a God before them. When he finally sat so were they all seated
who were provided with chairs or stools. The majority stood or squatted on the
ground with the crowd behind them interjecting where possible.
There is no doubt that some shook with fear, others controlled
their anger, while others still were overawed and overflowing with admiration and
excitement. They were with their king, the sole ruler of the
vast empire and his power exuded from him.
Unification could not happen overnight as the Assembly
represented only the start of a new world order. Some opposed it while
Constantine's compact Imperial Catholic Church was more important and easily
overrode individual points of issues that might have continued to divide.
A single religion to stipthe
dissension woulf now be run by a collection of bishops, with power to send
anyone to hell or to open the doors of heaven. They formed a parliament to
ensure the ruler's security and power like no other king before him.
His interest was focused on the outcome, not the debate that produced it.
The bible states that Babylon took over as the influence and
it was the old Capital city of the Amorites before Mari. Constantine, as shown
here was an Amorite The bible states of him:
He had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that
the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not
worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small
and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand
or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell,
save he that had the mark, or the number of the beast, or the number of his
name. Here is wisdom let him who hath
understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man;
and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Revelation 14:15-18
That is the number of Constantine,
as shown to me by the Spirit and proven by the evidence. The image he put
forth was Jesus Christ, for whom there is not a scarp of evidence except in
the writings by his cohorts.
The Plea from The Spirit.
""I have not sent them . . . yet they prophesy a lie in my
name; that I might drive you out and that you might perish, ye, and the prophets
that prophesy unto you."
