    • AD 500-600Beyond the reach or Rome in outlying places such as Saxony, Netherlands,Languedoc, etc., there were whole organizations of Acts 2 Christians. (J.H.Blunt,p. 15).AD 502 The majority of people in W. European tribes had been baptized intothe Name of Jesus. (H. Daniel-Rops, p.110)AD 540-670 Bede, "English History" p. 148, found one-God people throughoutEngland.AD 431 COUNCIL OF EPHESUS (laux. p.154) The popes (199 of them)proclaimed Mary to be the "MOTHER OF GOD." (E. Fodor, Turkey 1970,p.243).CATHOLICS BURN ALLEGED HERETICS! (J.B. Russell, p. 22).D 453 Pentecostal glossolalists martyred by Pope Leo I, some were tonguesspeaking Priscillianists. (Roth, p.35).AD 476 ROMAN EMPIRE FELL! Rome could no longer lord over othernations. Vain historians wept and moaned over the fall of corrupt Rome.
    • The Dark AgesThe term Dark Ages originally refers to the period between the fall of the RomanEmpire and the Renaissance (approximately 500AD-1000AD), during whichintellectual and cultural pursuits stagnated. It used to refer to the entire MiddleAges, though scholars in the 19th century began to recognize separate periods ofgrowth within the medieval period. The Dark Ages were officially ushered inwith the collapse of the Roman Empire, which was due to assault by barbariantribes and a weak government. The Dark Ages is most widely recognized for theperiod of feudalism in Europe. Land was divided and partitioned to the serfpopulation by a Lord. Serfs tilled the land and harvested crops, but gave most oftheir harvest to the Lord. In return, they were offered protection from the Lord.Knights were well above serfs in social and economic status. Viking raids werealso characteristic of the Dark Ages.They ravaged the coastline of Europe, pillaging any nearby towns. They wouldoften do this and leave before an adequate force could be mobilized to stop them.During the Dark ages, all scientific and empirical pursuits ceased and the Churchhad an enormous magnitude of power, even over kings.he western and eastern branches of the Church split into the EasternOrthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church. The divisionpropagated for a number of different reasons and stands even today.
    • With the sixth century begins the period in church history known as the Dark Ages."Iniquity and vice revealed unblushingly under the protection of Churchsanctity." Spiritual power and voluntary obedience of the gospel had beendisplaced in the Catholic church by forms and ceremonies borrowed fromJudaism and Paganism.The worship of Mary, and saints, and relics, had been introduced, and a belief in thesaving efficacy of human works had superseded faith in the Savior of sinners.Heathen idolaters were being converted to Catholicism, the only requirement madeof them being a transfer of their worship from their gods to the images of Christ andthe saints, with an oral profession of faith in Christ. Church and state havingbeen united under the reign of Constantine in the fourth century, the Christianreligion had become very popular, and vast multitudes of heathens wereconstantly flocking into the so-called Catholic church. In this century under thereign of Justinian an effort was made to enforce religious uniformity throughout theRoman Empire, and severe penalties were enacted against all who would notconform to the corruptions of the church of Rome.In the year 534 the power of the Vandals was broken in Africaby the Arabs, and the true followers of Christ, known as Donatists,were driven from their peaceful abodes.
    • In the various parts of the Empire where the people of God were found, persecutionswere so waged against them for their refusal to unite with the corrupt church, thatthey fled for refuge to the mountainous districts of northern Italy, northern Spain, andsouthern France. They were still known by the names, Novatianists, and Donatists.Having fled to the mountains they were called Montanists (or Mountaineers).They were occasionally called Ana-Baptists or re-baptizers, because they refused torecognize the validity of Catholic baptism, but baptized all who came to them fromthat party. This faithful people, banished, reproached, anathematized, and condemnedas criminals by Greek and Roman, were still watched over and preserved by thealmighty Shepherd of Israel, and continued, like the burning bush, amid the fires ofpersecution, unconsumed and undismayed.They were the true, independent, spiritual churches of Jesus Christ, composed ofbaptized believers, to whom the true gospel of the Son of God, and the pure servicethat belongs thereto, were more precious than life itself with all its attendantblessings. The altar-fires have been kept burning by this linked brotherhood throughall the gloom and blood of centuries, throughevery trial and every storm. No disasters could shake and no sufferingscould appeal the firmness and fortitude of this God-fearing people,through whom the true succession of the church of Christ is to betraced.

    • AD 600-700Christianity was found in several Modalistic Monarchian organizations. Thesewere generally referred to collectively as: CATHARI.AD 610 JESUS NAME WATER BAPTISM (Lambert, p. 62). The Jesus Christwater baptism was almost the only one in Frisia until AD 689. There were almostno Catholics. (J. Laux, p. 218).NOTE: For 526 years (since AD 37-42) Apostolic Celts in Britain had kept the14th NISAN Passover! One God doctrine was the dominant religion by far. (E.T.Thompson, "Through the Ages, pp. 106-108). The world has been duped intosupposing Catholicism was the only religion there was.AD 662 MOSLEMS FOUGHT CATHOLICS. Islamism was strong. Muslims hadthe KORAN, their Holy Book. (Bernstein & Green, p. 172). Muslims in Spainwere the Moors; and they protected Jews and other one God Christians fromCatholic interest.AD 695 Jews were killed in Spain by the Catholics. The adult Jews weremartyred in Spain by Catholic believers and children of the Jews were seizedand reared as Catholics! (C. Roth, p.127).
    • AD 800-900The Catholic hierarchy slandered all others as, HERETICS! However, allegedheretics filled the lands.AD 800 Quote: "Donatism (Acts 2) was never absent from the medieval scene. Itlasted for twelve centuries and it maintained the primitive Apostolic message."(L.Verduin, p.35). The 9th century had more Apostolics than any other. Thefollowing references prove this. (Z. Oldenbourg, pp. 29,41,255; J.B. Ressell, pp. 5-14, 172-178). During this period the Catholic system almost suffered total collapse.Apostolic preachers were everywhere. There were more "false priest" as they werecalled who had been ordained in the Catholic system. (Russell, p. 174).AD 800 Vain kings like Pepin, Charles Martel, Charlemagne, etc., bowed to popes.(Wm. Langer, pp.150-155). Huge land grants were handed to the popes.Charlemagne conquered and confiscated for the Vatican; he made about 54military campaigns against non-Catholic countries, 18 against Saxony alone.(Berstein & Green, p. 200; E.T. Tompson, pp. 120-125). He then forced people intoCatholicism.AD 858-867 Pope Nicholas admitted that Jesus Name baptism was the valid one!("Enc. Britannica, 11th ed., Vol 3, pp. 365-366).AD 852-889 FEUDALISM STARTED. This is how Europe became Catholic. Rulersused Catholic armies to crush Bulgaria; that religion was forced upon Czechs andSlavics, etc. Jews were then massacred. (Bernstein & Green, p. 150-1; Laux, pp275-288).
