How God Salvaged the Selling of the
To Emperor Constantine
For the Benefit of His Elect
The purpose of this document is to show,
once again, that satan must serve God and that God will never abandon
His Elect. No matter the gravity of the errors of the Roman Church
Administration, God has ensured that the core of the
Faith reaches the 21st Century
to help and nourish us through this
very difficult time.
In a previous
document (1) we
showed how Emperor Constantine directly intervened in Church matters
dogmas and discipline, although his interest was strictly political.
Religious discrepancies in early Christianity became 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 to act as
he were the Pope by presiding over the First Ecumenical
Council held at Nicaea. Constantine's excessive
interference in Ecclesiastical affairs are highlighted by his direct or
indirect participation in three Church Councils. The key one being the
First Ecumenical Council of
interference in Ecclesiastical affairs is highlighted by his direct or
indirect participation in three Church Councils – the key one being the
First Ecumenical Council of Nicaea. Constantine convened this Council,
which lasted from May 20th through August 25th, 325. The first
Ecumenical Council was attended by 300 Bishops, mostly Greek, in
addition to priests, deacons and laity.
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.
What Constantine intended was to bring unity to the
Empire by bringing unity within Christianity. He would accomplish
that by dispatching the discordant voices of the Donatists, the
Arians, and a
multitude of many smaller factions which were tearing
apart the infant Church.
As God would have it, the "winning" faction of Christianity was the one
that contained the most elements of Divine Truth, even though Emperor
Constantine himself hardly endorsed the winning faction.
In spite of condemning Arianism,
Constantine was baptized on
his deathbed by Eusebio of Nicomedia, a
supporter of Arianism, and not by Pope Silvester I
as it was
This is another example of the early
Imperial authority over the
Church. 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.
The key product of the First Ecumenical Council at Nicaea can be summed
up in the Nicene Creed. As approved in amplified form at the
Council of Constantinople (381),
it is the profession of the Christian Faith common to the Catholic
Church, to all the Eastern Churches separated from Rome, and to most of
the Protestant denominations.
The following is a literal translation of the Greek text of the
Constantinopolitan form, the brackets ( ) indicate the words altered or
added in the Western liturgical form in present use:
The Nicene Creed
We believe (I believe) in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven
and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father
before all ages. (God of God) light of light, true God of true God.
Begotten not made, consubstantial to the Father, by whom all things
were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven.
And was incarnate of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary and was made
man; was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was
buried; and the third day rose again according to the Scriptures. And
ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of the Father, and shall
come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, of whose
Kingdom there shall be no end. And (I believe) in the Holy Ghost, the
Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father (and the Son), who
together with the Father and the Son is to be adored and glorified, who
spoke by the Prophets. And one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. We
confess (I confess) one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look
for (I look for) the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world
to come. Amen." (2)
At one time, miguel
de Portugal believed this creed and other fundamental teachings as a
matter of Faith. That is no
longer the case; now he believes them
as a matter of Fact.
Noting that the Holy Ghost proceeds only
from the Father, just as the Son proceeded from the Father, miguel de
Portugal now knows - no
longer as a matter of Faith but as a matter of Fact - that the
pronouncements of this Creed constitute the Absolute Truth about the
core teachings of the Christian Faith (absolute to the extent that a human
mind can comprehend an incomprehensible reality).
The post-Nicene problems
arose when man - always man! - wanted to be like God and
transformed the Christian Church into an Imperial Catholic Church ruled
who acted, in far too many cases, as absolute tyrants trampling upon
Teachings of Jesus Christ.
Christianity went from being the "Religion of Jesus" to the "Religion
about Jesus". Thanks be to God, said tyrants could not destroy the
true Faith. (3)
By means of prayers, and by setting every possible record straight
(that is, exposing every lie contrived by Ecclesiastic Administrators
for a very human agenda), we defend the pristine Catholic Faith.
We cannot allow what is left of the Faith (3) to be destroyed by the
continuous, unchecked abuses within its Administration (4) - past, present and
future - and by the self-seeking, manipulative activities of the sects (5) within it.
For that purpose we exist, until God Wills otherwise.
