    For those of you here who believe that the ecclesial organisation headed by an elderly gentleman in the Vatican is the Spawn of Satan, when do you say this organisation started up and hence when did Christianity start to go horribly wrong? Was it

    1. When the last of the Apostles died (what I call the 'Mormon view')?

    2. When the Constantinian-Theodosian Settlement was Established in the 4th century (what I call the 'Classic Radical Reformation' view)?

    3. When the Western Roman Empire fell in 476 allowing the Papacy's power to rise (what I call the 'Whig' view; see eg: Gibbons' Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire)?

    4. When the Great Schism of 1054 happened (my view, which is also the view of the Orthodox Church and Magisterial Reformers such as Luther)?

    5. When the Council of Trent happened in 1545-63 (the view of some Protestants)?

    6. When the Second Vatican Council was held in 1962-5 (the view of traditionalist Catholics)?

    7. Another date/ event?

    Please give reasons for your answers

    When did Bush II enter into the political field? History will attest to it, mark my words.

    Do you mean go wrong for the RCC?

    I'm not sure there is a fixed date that the RCC formed and declared themselves or the pope the vicar of Christ, I would say it was an evolution based much upon the error of mixing religion with politics in a do as I say or else kinda way.

    If you mean where did Christianity go wrong? I would say that God's true church (born again believers) have never failed. God's Word marches on!

    Like no Methodist I've ever seen. Thats a good example of "The Dumbing down of America" Or if you prefer "The Great Train Robbery"

    OK, so far we have one vote for Big Bad Constantine and one (by me) for 1054 And All That. Would the person who voted for The Big C please tell me why s/he did it?

    Think back through the history of our Presidents and who comes to mind who was serious about the office and wasn't ashamed to profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Mentor and who confessed that he prayed daily and sought the Lord Jesus on the difficult decisions he had to make?

    Has the Catholic church ever been right in their doctrine?

    Jon, let me be direct with you if I could. There has been so much argument & contentiousness about the RCC in here that I would prefer not to discuss them any more. OK?:tonofbricks:

    Matt, your an educated man even though you bow to the Queen. You know Christianity took a big step backwards when Connie took control & made Christians Ligit.

    Christianity and Judaism went off track in AD 70 when the gentiles got control of Christianity and the Pharisees got control of Judaism.
