The Deception of Constantine (Page 3)

Constantine

Many credit Emperor Constantine for the spread of Christianity. While the Roman Empire once heavily persecuted the Church, Constantine legalised the Christian faith and even endorsed it to the point of it becoming the official religion of the empire. Should we thank Constantine or did something more sinister take place?

It seems that a growing number of people are coming to the conclusion that what Constantine actually did was hijack the Christian faith and changed it into a faith that merged his pagan roots. Doctrines like the Trinity and holy days like Sunday and December the 25th certainly point to this and form the basis of the Roman Catholic Church to this day. The following video explores the idea that Constantine was a pagan king who wanted to control Christians which by this stage existed in all four corners of the empire.

    The Bible says G_D is our Saviour, so my point is why did we need a saviour to come in the form of G_d/man to be a saviour? Where in the OT does it say we can not have a relationship with G_D without someone dying? The Jewish poeple had a relationship with G_d throughout history, and recievced forgiveness of sin by simply asking for it and repenting. :) :)

    Nick, again once the temple was destroyed the Jews no longer were able to make animal scrafices, they had to make them only in the Temple. also all the scriptures you are quoting to me are from the NT. On top of that, the deciples, even Jesus were preaching the Kingdom of God. The message they preached was not Jesus dying for our sins. That didn't get preached till after Jesus death. So how and why did the message get changed from preaching the Kingdom of God to having to get saved through Jesus dying on the cross? The message totaly changed. When and why did it change? It went from spreading the good news of the Kingdom of God to over night being your condemmed to Hell and can't have a relationship with G_d unless you accept Jesus. When did they start preaching having to accept Jesus death instead of the Kingdom of God? I know the Kingdom of God is not preached now, because I have been a quote “Christian” for over 40 yrs and involved in many different demonations. ???

    Hebrews 9:22-26
    22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

    23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

    24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

    25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

    26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

    Thats the problem, you sat you belonged to many denomination.
    But Rev. tells you to come out of Her my people. Have you?
    I have.
    If you go to my Songs you will see, that I worship our Father in Heaven. Because the Father cannot look on sin, and I do, I have a Mediator in Christ. For that I honor Him, He deserves all honor ansd glory, but worship belongs to our Father, who is
    above all. Ephesians 4:6
    Peace and Love Irene

    Hi JA,
    The evil principalities and powers in heavenly missed the point.
    They would not have allowed Jesus to be killed if they had understood the deeper wisdom.

    I think God actually brought in the sacrificial system to set up for the later sacrifice of Jesus to save men.
