    Another effect of these large ecclesiastical councils was the gradual abolition of that perfect equality which reigned among all bishops in the ORIGINAL, SCRIPTURAL ORGANIZATION of JESUS’ CHURCH ASSEMBLIES, in primitive times.

    For the order and decency of these newly invented FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN required, that someone of the provincial bishops, meeting in council should be invested with a superior degree of power and authority; and hence the rights of Metropolitans derive their origin.

    In the meantime the bounds of the newly invented FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN were enlarged; the custom of holding councils was fallowed wherever the sound of the gospel had reached, and the newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN had now the appearance of one vast republic, as the newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN were formed by a combination of a great number of little states.


    This occasioned the creation of a new order of ecclesiastics, who were appointed, in different parts of the worlds as heads of these newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN;

    WHICH IS IN TOTAL OPPOSITION TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS “THE HEAD OF JESUS’ CHURCHES”,


    WHICH IS WHERE THE TRIUNE GODHEAD PLACED JESUS, as we see in Ephesians 1:22

    "And [God The Father] Has Put all things under His [JESUS]Feet, and gave Him to be The Head over all things to the church”


    THE LORD JESUS CHRIST is THE HEAD of THE CHURCHES JESUS BUILT because THE SOVEREIGN GOD The FATHER PLACED JESUS CHRIST as THE HEAD of JESUS CHURCHES.

    Continuing:

    This occasioned the creation of a new order of ecclesiastics, who were appointed, in different parts of the worlds as heads of these newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN; …and whose office it was to preserve the consistency and union of that immense body, of this
    newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN whose members were so widely dispersed throughout the nations.


    Such were the nature and office of the patriarchs, among whom, at length, ambition, having reached its most insolent period, formed a new dignity, investing the bishop of Rome, and his successors, with the title and authority of prince of the patriarchs.”3


    Again “The face of things began now to change in the newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’
    assemblies of SATAN ‘Christian church’.


    The ancient method of ecclesiastical government seemed, in general, still to subsist. While, at the same time, by imperceptible steps, it varied from the primitive rule, and degenerated toward the form of a religious monarchy. For the bishops aspired to higher degrees of power
    and authority than they had formerly possessed, and not only violated the rights of the people but also made general encroachments upon the privileges of the presbyters. That they might cover these usurpations with an air of justice, and an appearance of reason, they published new doctrines concerning the nature of the newly invented universal FALSE ‘church’ assemblies of SATAN and of the episcopal dignity. Which, however, were in general so obscure, that they themselves seemed to have understood them as little as those to whom they were delivered.
