Coming Out of Babylon

God commands His people to “Come out” of Babylon in Revelation 18:23. The objective of this post is to help you do that.

“Come out of her [Babylon], My people.” (Revelation 18:4)

After commanding them to “Come out”, God goes on to give a chilling explanation of the destruction which will befall them if they do not.

And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. For all the nations have fallen because of the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich from the excessive wealth of her luxury.”

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive any of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her offenses. Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. To the extent that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, to the same extent give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ For this reason, in one day her plagues will come, plague and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.

The Great Apostasy Gave Birth to Babylon, the Great Harlot Who Deceived the World

The Great Apostasy was an event foretold to happen when ‘some’ of the church fell from the faith by following a doctrine of demons. It Is called a ‘great’ apostasy because of the size of the apostasy. It’s massive.

Through your sorceries, the entire world was deceived. Revelation 18:23

Most of Christendom has been patiently waiting for the ‘great apostasy’ to happen without realizing that it has already happened and their faith is the result of that apostasy.

The History of the Apostasy

1 Timothy 4

1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 3 [men] who forbid marriage [and advocate] abstaining from foods

This prophecy foretells some of the church falling from the faith by following a doctrine of demons. It also describes those who would lead the church astray. The defining characteristics of the leaders of the fallen church would be doctrines of abstaining from food and forbidding marriage.

The true faith was on one side of the prophecy, the false church on the other.

It Began In Paul’s Day

Throughout early church history, there were many different factions who believed different things, similar to the differing Christian doctrines in the world today. But mainly, there were two distinctly different, main groups of early believers. One was the true faith of the Apostles, the other was a group that departed from that faith to what the prophecy of apostasy in 1 Timothy 4 calls “a doctrine of demons”.

On one side were those who believed in the God of Paul and on the other side were those who departed from that faith.

The faith that the fallen church departed from is the true faith of the Apostles.

But this I confess to you, that according to the Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything laid down by the Law and written in the Prophets. (Acts)

The faith of the apostles was called The Way. It was considered a sect of Judaism and a part of Israel.

Paul’s God

We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world, and that there is no God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many so-called gods and lords), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father (1 Corinthians 8:6)

The Way believed that there was only One God and that God was the Father alone.

The fallen church believed in a doctrine that sprang up in Paul’s day and which Paul repeatedly referred to as a false gospel of Jesus.

While Paul was still ministering, there was no official church body with one central authority; there were simply small home groups that were planted by different apostles and which were spread throughout Christendom. As the church grew and spread into the pagan world, differing gospels began to emerge, and those gospels conflicted with what the Apostles taught.

The false gospels that sprang up during Paul’s ministry showed up repeatedly in his epistles to the churches. In those epistles, he railed against the false brethren who spread them. Try as he might to squash them through his letters, as pagan converts grew, the false gospels continued to spread.

False gospels frustrated Paul because he knew they were circulating and people believed them. Paul also knew that the Spirit said that some of the church was going to fall away because of false demonic doctrines. (1 Timothy 4)

18 For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part, 19 for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized. (1 Corinthians)

“we have heard that some persons have gone out from us and troubled you with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions..” (Acts)

8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. (Galatians)

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— (Galatians)

“For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.” (2 Corinthians)

14 But this I confess to you, that according to the Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything laid down by the Law and written in the Prophets. (Acts)

“…. there is no God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but ***one God, the Father,*** from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.” (1 Corinthians 8:4-6)

So, when Paul discovered that heretics were trying to lead his flock astray he set them all straight with a reminder of the truth and he made sure that the true gospel was clearly defined.

Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. 9 For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. 11 Whether, then, it is I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

100 AD Church Father Ignatius Defends the Only God of Israel, the Father

100 AD – Ignatius was an early church father who battled the same false gospels that Paul battled and he reiterated what Paul said; namely, that there is One God who sent HIS son:

Be not deceived with strange doctrines, nor with old fables, which are unprofitable. For if we still live according to the Jewish law, we acknowledge that we have not received grace. For the divinest prophets lived according to Christ Jesus. On this account also they were persecuted, being inspired by His grace to fully convince the unbelieving that there is one God, who has manifested Himself by Jesus Christ His Son, who is His eternal Word, not proceeding forth from silence, and who in all things pleased Him that sent Him. – Ignatius, Epistle to the Philadelphians

200 AD – The false gospels of Jesus Gain Momentum and Get a Title: The Catholic Dispensation of the Three in One.

The “men” in the flesh.

1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 3 [men] who forbid marriage [and advocate] abstaining from foods

In the early third century, the false gospel and false Jesus theology continued, and a man fitting the description of the men who would cause some to fall away to the doctrine of demons arose in the flesh. Exactly as foretold, the fallen church was led astray by a man who fits this description to perfection. His name is Tertullian, and he is famous for being an advocate of forbidding marriage and abstaining from food. He is also credited with being the father of the fallen church.

Tertullian’s God was not the God of Paul. Tertullian’s God was the false Jesus that Paul mentioned in his epistles.

Tertullian was a serious advocate for the doctrines that would define those who led the church astray. He wrote at length about both of these things (and many others) in his book, titled, “Against Praxeas”.

Tertullian is the embodiment of the men who were prophesied to lead part of the church to fall. He advocated for abstaining from food, forbidding marriage, and he is credited with defining the doctrine that directly opposed that of Paul and early church leaders, like Ignatius. He is credited with giving the “false gospel and false Jesus:” mentioned by Paul a name” (c. 200 AD); The Trinity. He is also credited with being the father of Christian and Catholic theology. To sum it up, Tertullian is the kingpin in leading the apostasy and birthing the Great Harlot, Babylon.

In addition to publishing his doctrines in painstaking detail, Tertullian also left evidence in his book, “Against Praxeas”, that there was massive opposition to the developing gospel of the Trinity. In it, he railed against the majority of the church because they refused to believe in the new-fangled Catholic Dispensation of the Three in One and instead chose to cling to Paul’s God: The One, the Only, the Father. God.

At this time, there were two major parties within the “church”. Those that believed in the One God of Israel, and those that believed in the Catholic Dispensation of the Three in One.

Eventually, c. 325 AD, the magnitude of the division caused by the two opposing doctrines caused such a stir in the Roman Empire that it came to Emperor Constantine’s attention and he became involved in settling the dispute. Constantine’s concern was for the peace of his empire. If the size of the statues that he built of himself was any indication, his legacy was extremely important to him and anything that threatened this was dealt with swiftly.

Constantine decided that the controversy needed to be settled once and for all so he called a council and invited thousands of bishops to come to Nicaea to deal with that were causing the controversy – and the issue of Jesus’ divinity was at the top of the list. This council is now known as the infamous Council of Nicaea.

The Council was called mainly to decide if Jesus was God or not. More than 1,800 church leaders from all over the empire were invited to the council but less than twenty percent of that number showed up to vote.

During the Council, and after a seemingly endless debate with no foreseeable end in sight, Constantine urged those present to end the controversy by voting. As with all theological debates, the council reached a deadlock. It was at this point that Emperor Constantine, who had convened the council, stepped in and sided with Athanasius. He argued that everyone present should sign the new creed that stated Jesus was of the same exact essence (Homoousios) as the Father: “Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten not made, by the Father as his only Son, of the same essence (Homoousios) with the Father, God of God, Light of Light.” Constantineʼs desire to deify Jesus was not in the least surprising. It was a natural carryover from his pagan past (Constantine had his father, Constantius, raised to the status of a god and deified.) Constantine added that whoever agreed to the new creed would be invited to his twentieth-anniversary celebration, while those who did not agree would face immediate banishment. As a result, all but seventeen die-hard Arians signed the new creed. Apparently, those in attendance knew how the Emperor wanted the vote to go because after Eusebius of Nicomedia returned home from the Council of Nicaea, he wrote to Constantine and said, “We committed an impious act, O Prince, by subscribing to a blasphemy for fear of you.” (From; ‘Are you Really that Stupid? Observations of a Skeptical Believer‘ by Dr. Joshua Christian) Eusebius admitted that he and his associates voted for the Catholic doctrine because they were afraid of what would happen if they didn’t. Their fears were well-founded. The emperor was quick to act. He ordered the banishment of Arius and the burning of his writings. The leading Arian bishops who refused to display their acceptance that Jesus was God by signing the creed were also deposed. One can only speculate how many of the bishops signed due to Constantineʼs threat. Eusebius’ letter is evidence that those present knew how Constantine wanted the vote to go and of those in attendance, only three had the courage to vote against the Trinity. After the Nicaean Council vote, the fears of those who voted under duress were substantiated when the Emperor exiled the men who refused to vote for the Trinity. The false gospel of Jesus that Paul worked so hard to eliminate was now the official doctrine of “Christianity” within the Roman Empire. To ensure that the newly made doctrine stuck, Constantine created the Edict Against Arians which ordered that any and all literature that promoted the Arian (and Apostles) version of God be destroyed by fire, and anyone who did not hand over the documents to be destroyed would be put to death. In addition, if any writing composed by Arius should be found, it should be handed over to the flames, so that not only will the wickedness of his teaching be obliterated, but nothing will be left even to remind anyone of him. And I hereby make a public order, that if someone should be discovered to have hidden a writing composed by Arius, and not to have immediately brought it forward and destroyed it by fire, his penalty shall be death. As soon as he is discovered in this offence, he shall be submitted for capital punishment. …— Edict by Emperor Constantine against the Arians The Roman Empire Destroyed the Truth Prior to the Arian Controversy and the fourth-century takeover of the church by Constantine, the content of the Bible was drastically different than it is today. During the second and third centuries, early church writers quoted the Bible in their writings and evidence of those writings still exist today. These quotes reveal a very different version of the Bible and incontrovertible evidence that Babylon deceived the world. ‘All the nations were deceived by your sorcery.’ (Rev 18:23) The evidence that Babylon deceived ‘all the nations’ is extensive. The first example of deception is a very serious example. It provides evidence that Bible manuscripts were falsified to agree with the doctrine that was implemented and forced upon the entire church after the Niceaen council. This evidence establishes two things. First, the entire world has been deceived exactly like Revelation foretold we would be. Second, the Bible is not inerrant or infallible. It’s been corrupted by Babylon, the Great unfaithful Harlot, and is her greatest tool of deception. Luke 3:22 – You are My beloved son, Today, I have begotten you. The following example is a prime example of how Babylon blatantly changed the oldest known documents from the early church in order to deceive the world into believing her demonic doctrine. One of the most important examples of deception and Bible corruption comes from the baptismal account recorded in Luke. In most of the present-day versions of Luke, Jesus is baptized by John, and as he comes up out of the water, the Spirit descends upon him and a voice comes from heaven and says, “You are my son, in you I am well-pleased”. (Luke 3:22) However, this reading is not how this verse was quoted by the early church fathers. Prior to the Nicaean Council, the same verse was only ever quoted as saying “You are my son, today I have begotten you”. Dr. Bart Ehrman, Bible Expert and Scholar, says, First, even though this reading is found in only one surviving manuscript of the fifth century (our oldest manuscripts of the passages are two Greek copies that come from the middle of the fourth), the passage is quoted by church fathers of the second through fourth centuries. These church fathers lived everywhere from Rome, to Alexandria Egypt, to North Africa, to Palestine, to Gaul and to Spain. And in every single instance the church fathers quotes the verse in this alternative version: “today I have begotten you” (from Psalm 2:7). That’s pretty important: this is the form of the text they were familiar with from the manuscripts available to them (manuscripts that no longer survive, obviously) in their time and place. The earliest form of the text is the one that later made it into only one manuscript. Why in only one? Because later scribes didn’t like this reading. When deciding which reading is older, one has to ask the following question: if a scribe changed the passage (and obviously one or more scribes did, since we have the passage in two forms) which direction was he more likely to change it? Was he more likely to change “You are my son, today I have begotten you” to say “You are my beloved son in whom I am well pleased” or the other way around? … So the question is: would a scribe be more likely to change the text in such a way as to make it amenable to a heretical Christology (by quoting Psalm 2:7 at the baptism), or would he be more likely to change it in order to keep it from being used to support a heretical Christology? The answer is: almost certainly the latter.’ Later scribes ‘didn’t like’ the reading as it was because it supported the Arian doctrine of the Monarchy of YHVH, which was punishable by death through the Edict against Arians. If Jesus was begotten of God and became His Son at his baptism, the Catholic Trinity doctrine was false. This would mean that Jesus wasn’t God’s eternal son. The earliest evidence that the baptismal account found in Luke 3:22 was corrupted comes in the form of quotes from many early church fathers over a period of hundreds of years before the Niceaen Council and from all throughout Christendom. For hundreds of years, the baptismal account was only quoted one way: “….today I have begotten you. The Ancient Quotes In the First Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians, he says: “But concerning His Son the LORD spoke thus: ‘Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten Thee.’” (Ante-Nicene Fathers, volume 1, p. 15) “…the original version is quoted numerous times in the following early Christian commentaries written between pre-70 A.D. – 325 A.D.: First Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians [pre-70 AD]; Dialogue of Justin with Tryphon, A Jew; The Instructor; The Banquet of the Ten Virgins; and Concerning Chastity; and Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. Clement – Epistle Composed pre-70 AD This epistle mentions the sacrifices were still ongoing at Jerusalem, this means tht this was written before 70 AD because in 70 AD, the Temple at Jerusalem was destroyed by Roman armies ending the sacrifices until today. (“First Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians,” Wikipedia ) 165 AD, Justin Martyr In a writing by Justin Martyr known as the Dialogue with Trypho, chapter LXXXVIII, Justin references the Gospels’ baptism accounts: He was in the habit of working as a carpenter when among men, making ploughs and yokes; by which He taught the symbols of righteousness and an active life; but then the Holy Ghost, and for man’s sake, as I formerly stated, lighted on Him in the form of a dove, and there came at the same instant from the heavens a voice, … ‘Thou art My Son: this day have I begotten Thee.’ (Dialogue with Trypho) In Trypho the Jew Justin quotes this again: For this devil, when [Jesus] went up from the river Jordan, at the time when the voice spake to Him, “Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten Thee,” is recorded in the memoirs of the apostles to have come to Him and tempted Him, even so far as to say to Him, “Worship me;” and Christ answered him, “Get thee behind me, Satan: thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.” chap. CII. 160 AD – Clement of Alexandria In Chapter VI of Book One, The Instructor, Clement of Alexandria says: “For at the moment of the Lord’s baptism there sounded a voice from heaven, as a testimony to the Beloved, ‘Thou art My beloved Son, to-day have I begotten Thee.’” (Ante-Nicene Fathers – CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA/The Instructor/Book I/Chapter VI,” at wikisource) Another account is found in Clement of Alexandria, Christ, the Educator, Vol. 23 at page 25: ‘When the Lord was baptized, a voice loudly sounded from heaven, as a witness to him who was beloved, ‘Thou art my beloved son, this Day I have begotten thee.‘ 300 AD, Methodius Methodius, The Banquet of the Ten Virgins, Concerning Chastity: “Now, in perfect agreement and correspondence with what has been said, seems to be this which was spoken by the Father from above to Christ when He came to be baptized in the water of the Jordan, ‘Thou art my son: this day have I begotten thee.’” (Ante-Nicene Fathers/Volume VI/Methodius/Banquet of the Ten Virgins/Thekla/Part 9,” wikisource). 300 AD, Lactantius Lactantius, in The Divine Institutes, says, “Then a voice from heaven was heard: ‘Thou art my Son, today have I begotten Thee.’ Which voice is found to have been foretold by David. And the Spirit of God descended upon Him, formed after the appearance of a white dove.” (Ante-Nicene Fathers/Volume VII/Lactantius/The Divine Institutes/Book IV/Chap. XV,” wikisource) 234 AD, Acts of Peter and Paul In the Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, it says: “Him, therefore, to whom the Father said, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee, the chief priests through envy crucified.” (Ante-Nicene Fathers/Volume VIII/Apocrypha of the New Testament/Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul/Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul,” Wikisource) After 200 AD, Origen In Origen’s Commentary on the Gospel of John, he writes: “None of these testimonies, however, sets forth distinctly the Savior’s exalted birth; but when the words are addressed to Him, ‘Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee,’ this is spoken to Him by God.” (Early Christian Writings) Faustus This quote begins with Faustus citing how Matthew and Luke read in 400 AD through ‘The Writings Against the Manicheans and Against the Donatists‘, in Book XXIII at 313. ‘I will, for the present, suppose that this person was right in saying that the son of David was born of Mary. It still remains true, that in this whole passage of the generation no mention is made of the Son of God till we come to the baptism; so that it is an injurious misrepresentation on your part to speak of this writer as making the Son of God the inmate of a womb. The writer, indeed, seems to cry out against such an idea, and in the very title of his book to clear himself of such blasphemy, asserting that the person whose birth he describes is the son of David, not the Son of God. And if you attend to the writer’s meaning [i.e., Matthew’s meaning] and purpose, you will see that what he wishes us to believe of Jesus the Son of God is not so much that He was born of Mary, as that He became the Son of God by baptism at the river Jordan. He tells us that the person of whom he spoke at the outset as the son of David was baptized by John, and became the Son of God on this particular occasion, when about thirty years old, according to Luke, when also the voice was heard saying to Him, “Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten Thee.” Throckmorton in Gospel Parallels states that this version of the Baptismal (“this day I have begotten thee”) is found in the following ancient manuscripts: Paris Papyrus, Sinaiticus, A B, Codex Alexandrinus, and Codex Vaticanus, “ and W. It is also found in Codex D. Almost all of them written prior to the Nicaean Council. Interestingly, the Bible quotes God saying the original version of this verse to Jesus as well: For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten [prōtotokos] into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. – Hebrews 1:5-6 The verse the apostles quoted also derail the Catholic Trinity doctrine. God wouldn’t speak in the future tense of having a son if Jesus was God’s eternal son. So what we see here is that the writer of Hebrews quotes that God did indeed say to Jesus, “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? But, the actual account of it happening in Luke 3:22 is removed and the subsequent manuscripts and Bible canons are changed to agree with the Catholic doctrine of the Trinity which states that Jesus has always existed as God. Foul Play ‘.. all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.‘ (Rev 18) As Dr. Ehrman stated “You are My Son, Today I have begotten you,” is the only way that Luke 3:22 was quoted for hundreds of years. Then, after the Nicaean council and Constantine’s subsequent ‘Edict against Arians‘ was made law, the quotes stop and the verse disappears. This is huge. First, this example of Bible falsification by the church is a huge deception. The original verse is completely contrary to the late-coming Trinity doctrine. This verse and the Trinity doctrine cannot coexist. The Trinity doctrine is based on Jesus’ eternal existence as God and God’s son. This verse reinforces the doctrine that Jesus was a man, who was the Messiah, and who became God’s son. Secondly, the blatant corruption means the Bible is neither inerrant nor infallible. The historical evidence is clear: the Catholic Trinity doctrine is false and Babylon “has deceived all the nations.” (Rev 18:23)

Almost as soon as it was born, Christianity fell prey to the sorcery of Satan and his demon horde. Satan’s failure to kill Jesus at birth meant that his only recourse was to send deception and confusion to keep the faithful from following the true gospel. With a quiver full of tares, Satan sent them into the harvest with gospels aplenty, and all of them false. False gospels, prophets, apostles, and doctrines flooded the new church overwhelming the new believers with polar opposite doctrines and creating a multitude of diverse sects all believing in different gospels.

Over time, as the growth of pagan converts outpaced that of their Jewish counterparts, the gospel that Paul preached was usurped by the gospel of pagans and polytheists who changed the monotheistic God of Abraham into a triune God who more closely resembled the multiple gods of their polytheistic past.

The confusion went on for years. Avid religious writers wrote against this one and that one. Their essays full of indignant outrage against the “heretics” becoming history. Until finally, the flood of falsity boiled down to two rival gospels creating a stir of such magnitude that it threatened the peace of the greatest empire on earth. And that wouldn’t do.

The Emperor took action against the upheaval and heavily involved himself in settling the theological disputes. His solution was one uniform church doctrine. Using all the power in his arsenal – namely, the threat of death – Constantine created a homogenous, boutique-blend of “Christianity”, which incorporated parts of Roman polytheism with John’s gospel of Jesus.

The result of Constantine’s involvement in church doctrine became Babylon’s official birth at the Council of Nicaea. The book of Revelation describes the church’s complicity with the Emperor’s interference as ‘fornication with kings.’ The “wine” (or fruit) of Babylon’s fornication is the idolatrous religion born out of the union.

The religions born from this early turmoil look nothing like the original. If you attend a church, the gospel that your church teaches is more than likely not the same gospel that the apostle Paul preached. The gospel preached today is the result of Rome’s direct interference in church doctrine by a psychopath who killed his family (and boiling his wife alive!) AFTER creating and becoming a member of his own designer brand of Christendom

This unholy union between church and state is the ultimate fornication with kings.

Fornication with Kings

Revelation Describes the apostate church, Babylon, as fornicating with Kings. This prophecy was foretold through the Catholic Church and the Roman Empire. When God’s people commit idolatry they are accused of fornicating or committing adultery against God. The apostate church committed fornication with Rome after departing to the doctrine of demons which corrupts the identity of God and causes man to worship a god other than Him.

 But he said to me, “Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God!”

In the end, the opposing doctrines caused so much controversy within the Roman Empire that Constantine called together the Council of Nicaea to force one doctrine on the entire church to be decided by a vote. In spite of the fact that the number of people who opposed the Trinity were great enough to cause a controversy worthy of Constantine’s interference, less than twenty percent of those invited attended the vote. The few that attended and voted to support the doctrine of Arius were subsequently exiled by Constantine and lost everything they owned.

The low turnout and stiff penalties for voting in opposition to the Catholic Doctrine are evidence of the side of the controversy that Constantine favored. After making the outcome of the vote Roman law, Constantine then created the Edict Against Arians, which made advocating the doctrine of the Arians illegal and punishable by death. It fits that Satan would use a pagan emperor to corrupt God’s identity and the Gospel to reduce the harvest.
