How The Roman Catholic Church
Emperor Constantine to Act as Pope
The Price Paid
The purpose of this brief historical
document is not to
Catholic Faith, which we uphold, and strive to live nor the office of
the Bishop of Rome - the Papacy. Our sole intent
is to help the Faithful understand the historical facts which
eventually caused the Roman Church Administration to abandon the path
set by Our Lord Jesus Christ.
intervened in Church matters such as
dogmas and discipline although his interest was strictly political.
Tragically, his actions were setting the pace that the Church, back in
the hands of the Hierarchy, would take in the future, distancing, with
every step, more and more from the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Religious discrepancies were a threat to the unity of the Roman Empire
thus a personal threat to Constantine. His concerns were so great that
he went as far, with the tacit approval of the Hierarchy as if he were
the Vicar of Christ and not the Pope. Constantine's excessive
interference in Ecclesiastical affairs are highlighted by his direct or
indirect participation in three Church Councils.
The Donatist Problem
Around the year 312 an ecclesial
movement took form in Northern Africa to oppose the appointment of
Ceciliano as Bishop of Carthage. The Donatists, followers of Donato,
former diocese ordinary, considered Ceciliano's ordination invalid.
Ceciliano's consecration was considered invalid because it was
performed by priest who had abjured the Faith during Diocletian
Constantine could care less about the
theological aspects of the Donatist issue. What he was concerned about
was that the Donatists rejected his interference in Church affairs.
* The Heresy of Arrio
After convening two Synods, Lateran
(313) and Arles (314), Constantine ordered their elimination
through violent means in the year 317. Nonetheless, the Donatist
schism lasted until the Seventh Century Muslim expansion in North
While the Donatist controversy was
running its course, a worse heresy made its debut. This heresy was
formulated around the year 320 by a priest of Alexandria named Arrio.
This heresy set the Church of the East against the Church of the West.
* The Church Unity Begins
Arianism held that the Son was subordinate to the Father since the Son
was created. That is, they denied the Divinity of Jesus. This question,
paraphrasing Constantine, "blown out of proportion" caused the greatest
schism of the Fourth Century.
* The Council of Nicea
In spite of the fact that Arianism drew the support of influential
members of the Church such as Eusebio of Cesarea, Constantine
biographer, and Eusebio of Nicomedia, the one who baptized Constantine,
Arrio was excommunicated by the Egyptian Episcopate at the insistence
of Alexander and Atanasio of Alexandria.
The Church Unity begins to fail and, with it, the unity of the Empire.
In 21st Century terms - Constantine panics and decides to directly
Constantine convened the first
Ecumenical Council of the history which lasted from May 20th through
August 25th, 325. This first Ecumenical Council was attended by 300
Bishops, mostly Greek, in addition to priests, deacons and laity.
* The Church Headed by the
Emperor and Not the Pope
The Synod was presided by Osio of Cordoba, but the real director was
Constantine. Pope Silvester I limited his involvement by sending two
priests as representatives - Victor and Vicentio.
The Council of Nicea condemned Arianism
as expected; after all, that was Constantine's reason for convening the
Council. It proclaimed that the Father and the Son are
co-substantial (foundation, in union with the Holy Spirit, of the
Trinity), established the date for Easter and approved the first Creed.
* Constantine's Baptism -
Another Great Incoherence
In addition, the Council served to prove, without a doubt, that it was
Constantine the one who controlled the Administration of the Church and
not the Pope (Silvester I at the time). Constantine opened and closed
the Council from a golden throne amidst the reverences and adulation of
the Bishops in attendance.
In spite of of condemning Arianism,
Constantine was baptized in his deathbed by Eusebio of Nicomedia, a
supporter of Arianism, and not by Pope Silvester I as it was invented
This is another example of the Imperial authority over the
Ecclesiastical authority. In his last years, Constantine did not think
it wise to harass the followers of Arianism since they were a majority
in the East. It was Emperor Theodosio and the Council of Constantinople
who brought the schism caused by Arianism to an end in the year 381.
As the reader may
see, it was Constantine, by the default
of the understandably weak Church Administration, who converted the
Church of Jesus Christ into an Imperial Church. Later on, the Church
Administrators invented the Constantine
rightful control of the Church.
The problem was that, instead of creating a document in which
Constantine, once he had established the Church on solid temporal
ground, surrendered all Imperial rights over the Church Administration
to the rightful Hierarchy, they became very greedy and claimed that
Constantine had willed the Roman Empire - East and West to the Pope.
The proposed first pseudo-fabrication would have sailed through the
centuries and up to today uncontested, but the ridiculous notion
that the Empire had been willed to the Pope could not last very long
and, as all other lies from the Church Administrators, ended up
the Faith and propitiating the foundation of groups which became
enemies of the Church, thus the Faith, such as the Illuminati
We cannot allow, through and setting every possible record
straight, that what is left of the pristine
by the continuous unchecked abuses within
and the activities
As we alert the Faithful about this massive deception, our
work is done. No excuses will be entertained by God, at the time of
Judgment, from anyone who has had the opportunity - for nineteen years
- to correct their behavioral errors as related to believing in "Mother
Church" above believing in God and not strive to live the crystal clear
key teachings of Jesus Christ - key teachings that do not need
Make no mistake....
he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten
with few stripes. And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall
be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will
demand the more. [Luke 12:48]
