Roman corruption of Christianity

1166

AFTER the era of Paul, came the burning of the temple of Jerusalem and the dispersal of the black Israelites from the land of Judea.
The gentiles now had in their hands, the ancient scrolls of Israel and Christianity was now one of many competing religions in the Roman Empire.
There were pagan religions practised by most Romans, Zoroastrianism by the Persians, Judaism by the Pharisees and Christianity which started after the crucifixion of Yahshua.
There were many other religions and the Roman Empire was virtually divided into sects of different beliefs and because of these divisions, the Roman Empire was vulnerable.
The Romans had all along used brutal means to maintain order and loyalty, but they kept losing their subjects to the competing religions in the empire.
Rome was an empire which absorbed many different people and cultures as long as they were willing to abandon their indigenous laws and traditions for the Roman law.
By the 2nd century CE, a large portion of the Roman Senate comprised Africans and other black people from the Middle East.
The greatest writer in Roman history known as Terrence Afar, was an African and some great people such as Julius Caesar were students of Afar’s literary works.
Within a relatively short period, Christianity made great strides in places such as Egypt, Syria and even parts of Rome.
The ministry that was inspired by people like Paul in Rome went through many transformations and developed the papal system.
Many of their founding popes were black and some were even born in Africa. Examples of these black popes include; Victor I who was the 13th Pope of the Church of Rome 195 -200 CE, Saint Miltiades who was Pope around 310 CE and also Saint Galacius.
This is testimony that, in ancient times, both in the east and west, the black man held the legacy of the priesthood of God.
It is also proof that the false impression created by the white people that black people are heathens received religious enlightenment from white people is a corruption of the truth.
In the beginning of the 300’s CE, the kingdom of Axum which is in Ethiopia became the first major empire to take up Christianity as their official religion.
The Ethiopians had been exposed to Christianity through Christian Priests who had come from Syria and fled from Judea.
In Rome, at the time of Ethiopia’s conversion, the empire was divided into ruling factions.
Constantine was the ruler of Rome, but he had rivals that weakened his influence in the empire.
One such rival was Maxenthius and the two often went to battle.
In October of 312 CE, Constantine overwhelmed Maxenthius in battle and became the sole emperor of Rome.
The Romans claim that just before the battle began, Emperor Constantine saw a sign in the sky telling him to conquer in the name of Jesus.
After he conquered, Constantine became a Christian and thus converted the whole empire of Rome into a Christian empire.
The truth however, is that from the time Constantine set his mind to be a Christian, the religion that would thenceforth be called Christianity would in fact become a stubborn stain on the name of Christ and a monument to human folly.
As I mentioned earlier, Saint Miltiades was a black Pope of the Church of Rome, which would later be called the Roman Catholic Church.
It was in his term of office that Constantine accepted Christianity.
Even in the time of Constantine, Christ was still being painted as a black man and some of these paintings of the black Saviour in Constantine’s time remain.
Constantine was a shrewd politician.
He chose the Christian religion to be the religion of the empire not for religious reasons, but he assessed it to be the best that would help him to attain order and unity in the Empire.
Three centuries after the Roman crucifixion of Yahshua, Constantine, the Roman Emperor, summoned all the Christian Bishops of the known world to unify the church, with himself as chairman.
The Bishops of this period were in endless argument over the nature of Christ. Some argued that he was the most perfect of men, but was not God.
Others argued that he was both man and God.
This is what is described as the ‘Mystery of God’ in the Bible.
In that time this question had seriously divided the Christian Church.
It was such contradictions among Christians that allowed pagans such as Constantine, to manipulate and corrupt Christianity.
The great meeting of bishops called by Constantine was called the ‘Naisia’ meeting because it was held at Constantine’s summer palace which was located at the sea side resort of Naisia in modern day Turkey.
Bishops from around the world and as far as Ethiopia came and attended.
After the meeting which took months, they came out with an agreement known as the Naisia agreement.
The issues on their agenda included settling the question of Christ’s divinity, condensing all the Hebrew and Christian scrolls into one common cannon for all Christians to follow.
More meetings followed after Naisia and what resulted was the covering of a pagan face in a Christian mask.
Until the time of Constantine, Christianity had been the humble man’s religion, but now it would become the religion for politicians, nobles, and taxman.
The Romans and many other Bishops who held stake in the decision making were non-Israelites, and some of these gentiles were even portrayed as enemies in the scrolls of the Israelites.
An example is the Bishop of the Greeks, who was present at these meetings.
How is such a man expected to be a decision maker on Christian issues when his ancestors were recorded as the heathens in the scrolls of the Israelites?
The Roman, Constantine was just as unfit as he was a descendant of the killers of Christ and the persecutors of the Christians.
The reality, however, is that these were the founders of the Christianity practiced today.
Among the many things that the Romans and the Christian Bishops altered from the original law and history of Israel are, firstly, the day of worship became Sunday, instead of Saturday.
God is said to have made the world in six days and rested on the seventh. According to the Bible, God commanded the Israelites to keep the seventh day holy and as a day of rest forever.
The Romans chose Sunday to defy this ordinance, because the first day of the week had been used by the sun worshippers to worship the sun.
Secondly, the Naisia meeting split God into three, namely, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
The Israelites were monotheists and from the time of Adam, up until the time of Yahshua, there was no mention of a trinity or partnership in God.
The Israelites believed that all things, man and angels were to bow to the one God of their forefathers.
The doctrine of the trinity was a fabrication that was designed to settle the dispute of the ‘Mystery of God’.
Thirdly, the raising of Mary, the mother of Yahshua to a Godly status was post-Naisian motivated by the Roman desire to continue worshiping a pagan goddess. The prayer which says Hail Mary would never have been accepted by Yahshua and his mother.
Fourthly, the use of the cross as a symbol and bowing down to it in prayer would have made Jesus very angry.
The Israelites forbade idols and would not bow to any object made of stone or wood.
In fact, the cross symbolises death.
It is a mockery of Yahshua by the same heathens who killed him on the cross.
Why would a cross be an appropriate symbol for the true followers of Christ when Christ himself did not believe in death, but resurrection?
The Christian cross is non-biblical and a heathen symbol, just as the star of David in Judaism.
Yet it is still being used blindly by today’s Christians.
The Romans basically did with Christianity what the Greeks had earlier done with Hinduism and the Pharisees with Judaism.
They Hellenised the religions.
