The true face of Christianity
A little chronology on the history of Christianity and of the people who believe in that religion.
Please understand that this list is not a full, compleat, detail account of all of the atrocities that had been committed by those people who profess to be a godly people.For that would require an extremely long list.
So lets start this chronology at the beginning when Christianity first emerged on the world scene.
80CE; During the reign of Titus, The people who would become known as Christians had seperated themselves from the true fold of Yeshua. They develope and create their own dogma and god whom they will call Je-Zuse Christ.
170CE; Marcus (Aurelius Antoninus) was emporor of Rome and was an enemy of the Christians because he believed that they were secretly planning to overthrow Rome. Clement of Alexandria was born in 150 CE and died in 215 CE. He had lived for fifty-five years. He was a church father (Bishop) and theologian of the early Christian Eastern Orthodox Church sect. He started his ministry around 170-180 AD. He was born in Athens and spent most of his time in Alexandria. His most important work is the trilogy "Exhortation to the Greeks" the "Tutor" and "Miscellanies. His is the earliest works (********s) of the teachings of the early Christian that is on hand. Teachings and works a good hundred years after the actual events had taken place from the time of Yeshua and the original Apostles.
200CE; Emperor Claudius Era; Since the Jews were continually making disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus, he [Claudius] expelled them from Rome.
284CE; Emperor Diocletian found that he could not rule by himself, so the division of the Empire began. He split the empire in half, with two emperors ruling from Italy and Greece, each having a co-emperor of their own. This division continued into the 4th century.
324CE; Constantine I (Constantine the Great.) became the monarch of Rome. Great for who? Certinally not for those people who had suffered or were slaughtered during his reign.
The persecution and execution of people whom the "Christian Church" viewed as heretics began. Heretics were people who did not uphold fully to the theology that was given to people by the ruling "Church". Non-believers of Christianity and people who had strayed from the strict teachings of the ruling Christian "Church" or those people who spoke against the "Church" or its teachings were persecuted and executed. Any "gospel" writings that did not meet the full approval of the then ruling "Church" were confiscated and burned. Emperor Constantine, the first Roman Emperor to become a Christian, a sort of part-time Christian upheld by the then Roman Christian church, had over 3000 non-Christians and Christians executed because some people had refused to covert to the Christian religion, or those people who held interpretations of Christianity that did not agree with his and the Roman (Catholic) church that he represented. These killing of innocent people were more than the number of Christians who had died at the hands of the pagan Romans during the well known 1st century persecutions of Christians when they were led to the lions. Constantine decided to found a new capital for himself and chose Byzantium (today's Istanbul) for that purpose.

1060CE; A reign of terror began for those people who did not uphold fully the Roman Catholic Church theology and teachings.

Any material that were found that did not meet the full approval of the Roman Catholic Church was destroyed and burned.

If these non-catholics Nobals or Lords failed to make amends within a year, it shall be reported to the Supreme Pontiff, who shall pronounce his vassals absolved from fealty to him (consfectation) and offer his land to Catholics.

1286CE; The consuls of Carcassonne complained to the pope, the King of France, and the vicars of the local bishop about the inquisitor Jean Garland, whom they alleged had been inflicting torture to their people.
1320CE; In a trial held at Pamiers in southern France, a converted Jew who was accused of having relapsed into Judaism, argued that he had been forced to submit to baptism under the threat of death. His arguments, however, were rejected by the inquisitorial tribunal on the grounds that Baruch (The Jew) had not been forcibly held at the baptismul and that he did not protest at the time because he had been told that to protest meant death. This answer did not satisfy the inquisitors, who argued that only in such circumstances as they had specified could a defense of coerced baptism be recognized.
1378CE; A Great Schism developes because there had been two or three Popes at the same time, each supported by rival powers in Europe.
1391CE; The Jewish community of Barcelona was decimated and hundreds of thousands of Jews were either massacred or forced into baptism in Aragon and Castille. From then on into the fifteenth century, Jews continued to be forcefully baptized. Although the Church frowned upon this type of mass compulsory conversion, once the person was converted, any deviation from the Catholic faith on the part of the convert constituted "heresy." and were subject to the penalty of death.

1492CE; Rodrigo Borgia elected Pope (Pope Alexander VI). Also; What began with Columbus' voyage, on through the seventeenth century in Northern, Central and South America, these fine Christians who had established their colonies, had perpetuated the vastest holocaust and genocide in all of human history. Their Christian rampage to steal the lands from the native people had killed in average of well over 80 percent of the people. Their killing of native people amounted to probably more than 150 million victims. What was the mind set of these fine upstanding Christian people who felt it was their duty to slaughter all these native people? As Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Winthrop had put it, "It was the duty of Christians to carry the Gospel into those parts of the world, and to raise a Bulwark against the kingdom of the Ante-Christ." My, how nice of these Christians to bring the Gospel to those that they had slaughtered!
1500CE; Became known as "The Burning Times". As the Church spread lies about people who were accused of being "withces", men, women and even children were accused of being with the devil, of Satan. People who would not follow the "Christian" faith were increasingly persecuted as the hysteria increased. With the aid of witch-hunting manuals such as the Malleus Maleficarum, thousands of people were accused as witches across Europe, a large portion of these people were not even practitioners of their Old Religion. Never-the-less, they were hunted down and killed. This type of slaughter continued well into the 18th century in Europe. Even today, the actual number of people who died during that time is unknown.

1542CE; Bernardino Ochino, head of the Capuchin Order fled Italy and converted to Protestantism. Almost as soon as he left, Swiss presses began printing and exporting compilations of his works, many of which found their way back into Italy. Fearing that Ochino's words would cause more Catholic people losses to Protestantism, Pope Paul III banned his writings in Italy.
1544CE; A new version of Index of Forbidden Works was created. Pope Paul IV's Pauline Index banned over 583 authors. He knew better than to allow any room for argument over the new Index: he made it clear that its *******s were not open for debate. The Pauline Index banned many northern European scientific ****s not necessarily becuase they contained heretical views, but because their author was Protestant.
1545CE; Council of Trent begins. Aims to reform the Roman Catholic Church.
1562-1578CE; French religious wars between Catholics and Protestants.
1563CE; Last session of the Council of Trent was held.
1564CE; After the last session of the Council of Trent had closed, the Congregation of the Index released a refined Tridentine Index. This new Index, with modifications, would be the model for every Index to be released aftewards. This Index marked the end of the "free press" in all of Italy, including liberal states like Venice, for some time. Naturally, there was an extensive underground book trade in Protestant books during this time.
1571CE; Congregation of the Index (of banned books) was convened.
1588CE; Pope Sixtus V created the Congregation of the Holy Roman and Universal Inquisition or Holy Office.

1633CE; Galileo Galilei was tried and convicted of heresy and escaped the death penelty because he had recanted his teachings.
1697CE; While the "Burning Times" were moving towards their end in Europe, in America, another witch-hunt was beginning. As with the European witch-hysteria, American Protestant Puritans, and Protestant "churches" who had fled persecution from their fellow Christians in Europe and Great Britain, had fostered an environment ready for such a hysteria, strained as its inhabitants were between economics, lifestyles and politics as a result of their new surroundings and the Puritan superstitions and religious beliefs. Women were a major target for these which hunts because they were often found to be mixing brews of herbs probably for medical reasons and were accused of being handmaidens of Satan. These Witch hunts had killed men, women and children by these Protestant Christians with their stupid superstitious and perverted ideology. With the addition of slavery spreading throughtout the Americas, many of these slaves were involved in voodoo, the stage was set for another general panic and witch-hunt to begin which Protestant Christians formed the Ku Klux Klan. The vast majority of its members were and still are Protestant Christians.
1808CE; King Joseph Bonaparte abrogated the Spanish Inquisition.
1814CE; The Inquisition became known simply as the "Holy Office."
1841CE; The persecution of Protestant Christians by Catholics in France continued with very little intermission from the revocation of the edict of Nantes, by Louis XIV.
1917CE; The Codex Juris Canonici abolished use of torture by the Church.
1933CE; Pope Pius xII (Bishop Pacelli) desired to enhance papal power with the new Germany of Hitler's regime. Germany at the time was made up mostly of Protestants. Pope Pius XII negotiate with Hitler, signing the 1933 Reich Concordat. The negotiations were conducted exclusively by Pope Pius XII (Pacelli) over the heads of the faithful, the clergy, and the German bishops. This was responsible for the crippling of political resistance of German Catholics, and hence made him a willing accomplice of the Nazi regime. Pope Pius XII, during World War II, had brought lasting shame on the Catholic Church by failing to denounce the Final Solution. Only when Hitler broke away from the Catholic Church, did Pope Pius XII begin to work against the Hitler Nazi regime. By then, Hitler's regime was falling apart. This is the reason why you now have conflicting views on the subject.
1965CE; Pope Paul VI reorganized the Holy Office and renamed it Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith.
1970 - 2002CE; Scandel breaks out in newspapers that sodemy of children among the congregations of Catholic and Protestant Christian churchs is found to have been perpetuated by its clurgy. It had also been established that children, in Catholic and Protestant church run orpfanages, schools and other Christian institutions had been dens of sodemy, of mental and phyisicle abuse of children in their care. It had been established that sexual, phyisicle and mental abuse of children, young teenage boys and girls and Nuns had been going on for the past hundreds of years. Such was the power and control the church had over the people that these atrocities had gone on unnoticed by the general public.
Priests, Pastors should hang their head in shame.
Now you may understand why I said that the Holy Spirit had not been within the religion of Christianity from the start.
Also The Holy Spirit had nothing to do with the estabilshing and expansion of these churches
I can only feel sorry for those people who have been the victims of this great Christian fraud
These people think that their sins have been forgiven. I am sad to say that they have not, not when they uphold a false doctrine and pray to a fictitious god of their own making
For those people who claim to be a Christian today, they shair that legacy of Christianity through their association with that false faith
Do not let yourself get drawn into that perverted Christian religion
YUSUFALI: On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray : ) "Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden Like that which Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith."

إن كان سيدنا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم ليس رسول الله لمدة 23 عاماً .. فلماذا لم يعاقبه معبود الكنيسة ؟
والنَّبيُّ (الكاذب) والكاهنُ وكُلُّ مَنْ يقولُ: هذا وَحيُ الرّبِّ، أُعاقِبُهُ هوَ وأهلُ بَيتِهِ *
وأُلْحِقُ بِكُم عارًا أبديُا وخزْيًا دائِمًا لن يُنْسى(ارميا 23:-40-34)
وأيُّ نبيٍّ تكلَّمَ باَسْمي كلامًا زائدًا لم آمُرْهُ بهِ، أو تكلَّمَ باَسْمِ آلهةٍ أُخرى، فجزاؤُهُ القَتْلُ(تث 18:20)
تحمَّلتُ وحديَ مـا لا أُطيـقْ من الإغترابِ وهَـمِّ الطريـقْ
اللهم اني اسالك في هذه الساعة ان كانت جوليان في سرور فزدها في سرورها ومن نعيمك عليها . وان كانت جوليان في عذاب فنجها من عذابك وانت الغني الحميد برحمتك يا ارحم الراحمين
a very innocent and pure history !! but full of conspiracies ,challenges and struggles ... this is the formation of this religion....
very strange to have great meetings and conventions to decide on god and decide what to worship ??!! and still dare to call for their religion and defend it ?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
قل هو الله احد * الله الصمد * لم يلد و لم يولد * و لم يكن له كفوا احد
Dis : " Lui, Dieu, est Un ! * Dieu est le Soutien universel ! * Il n'engendre pas et Il n'est pas engendré, * et Il n'a pas d'égal. "
