  6. 6. The Dark AgesPAULICIANS:The Paulician churches were of apostolic origin, and were planted in Armenia in thefirst century. "Through Antioch and Palmyra the faith must have spread intoMesopotamia and Persia; and in those regions become the basis of the faith as it isspread in the Taurus mountains as far as Ararat. This was the primitive form ofChristianity. The churches in the Taurus range of mountains formed a huge recess orcircular dam into which flowed the early Paulician faith to be caught and maintainedfor centuries, as it were, a backwater from the main for centuries" (Bury’s edition ofGibbon’s History, VI. p. 543). The earliest center of Christianity in Armenia was at Taron, which was the constanthome and base of operations of the Paulicians.
  7. 7. The Dark AgesPAULICIANS:THEIR ORIGINS The Paulician churches were planted in Armenia during the first century (according to their tradition, by the Apostle Thomas). They were named Paulicians in the 7th century by their enemies because of their emphasis on the letters of Paul, and their practice of adopting Pauline names. They insisted on being called "Christians"--not Catholics.
  8. 8. The Dark AgesPAULICIANS: THE STORY OF SIMEONIn 684 AD, the Eastern Emperor ordered an officer of his army by the name ofSimeon to hunt down and execute a Paulician preacher named Constantine. When hefound him, Simeon commanded Constantines own congregation to kill him bystoning. They steadfastly refused to do this. Finally, Constantines own adopted son,Justus, performed the deed.The event so moved Simeon that he was converted himself from Catholicism to thePaulician persuasion AND BECAME THE PASTOR OF CONSTANTINESFORMER CHURCH! Simeon was eventually betrayed by Constantines son, Justus,and was burned alive.The Paulicians suffered horrible persecutions and history records that at least 100,000of them were killed, "by beheading, buntings and drawings--and that without pity"during just one 25 year period (842-867 AD).
  9. 9. The Dark AgesPAULICIANS:The History of the Christian Church, by George Fisher, reads:"While the Christian world, as it has been the fashion to call it, was thus sunk into anawful state of superstition--at a moment when darkness seemed to cover the earth,and a gross darkness of the people--it is pleasing to contemplate a ray of celestiallight darting across the gloom. About the year 650, a new sect arose in the east, underthe name of Paulicians, which is justly entitled to our attention.From George Fishers History of the Christian Church, we read:“In this manuscript called Key of Truth, we find many of their beliefs. Conybearesays he had at last ...Understood who these Paulicians really were. All who had‘written about them’ had been misled by their Calumnies (slanders). I now realized(he said) that I had stumbled on the monument of a phase of the Christian Church soold and so outworn, that the very memory of it was lost...Their system (he continues) was like the European Cathars, in its basal idea and conception alien to persecution; for membership in it depended upon baptism, voluntarily sought for, even with tears and supplications by the faithful and penitent adult.
  10. 10. The Dark Ages PAULICIANS:On the contrary, the whole purpose of the scrutiny, to which his heart and intelligencewere won, and to guard against that merely outward conformity, which is all that thepersecutor can hope to impose.The Paulicians were the descendants of the original church in his book The PilgrimChurch:"The persecutions to which they were subjected, and the systematic destruction oftheir literature, hide from us all but occasional glimpses of their history, though whatremains is sufficient to show that there were in those wide regions of Asia Minor andArmenia, around Mount Ararat and beyond the Euphrates, churches of baptizedbelievers, disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, who kept the teachings of the apostlesreceived from Christ and contained in the scriptures, in an unbroken testimony fromthe first.“

  12. 12. The Dark AgesThey claimed that their churches were of apostolic origin.They used the Bible as their sole rule of faith.They believed in individual soul liberty.They practiced Believers baptism only.They rejected Transubstantiation.They rejected ceremony of any sort.They opposed idol worship.They had no hierarchy.Paulicians were also known as Bogomils "friends of God" and Cathari, "Pure Ones."Their numbers swelled, and in 1291 AD the Catholics launched anInquisition to try to eradicate them.They are know to have established churches throughoutTurkey, Greece, Bulgaria, The Balkans, Serbia, Bosnia,and then into Europe.

  20. 20. 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).
  21. 21. 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).
