How severe is the ‘Jesus Christ’ delusion in Catholics and Christians? Is it more severe among Catholics? Or, is it more severe among born-again Christians, Methodists, Baptists, Protestants or members of other Christian sects ? Or, could it be that, in fact, there is no material difference in terms of severity in them?
Of course, the answer is expected to vary from one person to another. It is because, if you are a Catholic, born-again Christian, Methodist, protestant or member of other Christian sect, you will all definitely deny having ‘Jesus Christ’ delusion. In fact, all of you will definitely assert your respective truth, to the point of physically defending your alleged faith. However, because your doctrines and practices are too wide apart, it may only mean that only one of you is telling the truth and the rest are lying, or it may mean that everybody is telling a lie. Incidentally, your leader will agree or argue on one thing-that is, how the offerings will be distributed among them.
But before proceeding further, please answer this poll, just to know the winner.
Most probably, you will not answer the poll believing that Catholicism and Christianity are fine and, in terms of differences or confusion of dogma in Christendom, you will just justify it as operation of a satanic influence.
But are we sure that Satanic influence merely came after dogmatic differences, which gave to rise to numerous Christian groups?
The history of early Christianity reveals otherwise. History in Wikipedia gives us the clue, as follows:
The first part of the period, during the lifetimes of the Twelve Apostles, is traditionally believed[by whom?] to have been initiated by the Great Commission of Jesus (though some scholars[who?] dispute the historicity of this event), and is called the Apostolic Age. The earliest followers of Jesus comprised an apocalyptic, Second Temple Jewish sect, which historians refer to as Jewish Christianity. Though Paul‘s influence on Christian thinking is said to be more significant than that of any other New Testament author, the relationship of Paul of Tarsus and Judaism remains a matter of dispute. Early Christianity gradually grew apart from Judaism during the first two centuries of the Christian Era; it established itself as a predominantly gentile religion in the Roman Empire.
In the Ante-Nicene Period (literally before the First Council of Nicaea in 325), following the Apostolic Age, both incredible diversity and unifying characteristics lacking in the apostolic period emerged simultaneously. Part of the unifying trend was an increasingly harsh rejection of Judaism and of Jewish practices. By the beginning of the Nicene period, the Christian faith had spread throughout Western Europe and the Mediterranean Basin, and to North Africa and the East: see Early centers of Christianity. The Mediterranean Christianity journey consisted of 48 cities that St John visited to get the gentiles to join the Christian community.
Historians[which?] commonly use the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and the toleration/ promotion of Christianity by Emperor Constantine I (reigned 306–337) in the Roman Empire to mark the end of early Christianity and the beginning of the era of the first seven Ecumenical Councils (325–787).
In short, even historians are in agreement that the reign of Emperor Constantine in AD 325 had put an end to early Christianity. Thus, Catholics and Christians inherited the diluted form of Christianity, where they are doctrinally taught to kneel before the cross, e.g, Catholics who pray in churches and kneeling towards the altar, where the cross is located, and praise it, as a sign of Christianity, as if it is God. Worst, they are being indoctrinated to believe, using the falsified bible, in Jesus Christ, not only as the son of God but also as God, despite the fact that no Jesus name ever existed, when the messiah was here on earth.
