Today’s question: So when the mythical Jesus guy …

Question: So when the mythical Jesus guy was on Earth in the story, did he scare the Roman Empire enough to crush it or did the Roman Empire crush him?

Answer: Shortly after Jesus Christ rose again from the dead, he founded a universal Church, for the purpose of our salvation. Jesus promised that the Gates of Hell (which is the Power of Death) would never prevail against his Church and that it (the Church) would last, until the end of time.

By about the 4th century, the Church had successfully converted the entire Roman Empire to Christ. When the Roman Empire eventually declined and fell, the Church went on to rebuild all of modern western civilization, in the image of Heaven.

The Church (known today as Roman Catholic) constitutes the longest reigning, continuous government on Earth and has managed to continue to honor its divine mandate in spite of the many generations of corrupt people who have worked to subvert it, control it, overthrow it, and plunder its great treasures for themselves.

It’s really no wonder, since that “mythical Jesus guy” you asked about is still alive, is still the head of his universal Church and is still God, Almighty.

Seen on the web: Time for a new Renaisance, perhaps?

Posted by pjthom81

…Catholicism created the West by its inheritance of the Classical culture and the Greco-Roman worldview, with its love for science and the arts.

Catholicism married this worldview to the Judeo-Christian ethos expressed in scripture.

Protestants deny one half, militant secularists the other. Put another way, the Reformation and the French Revolution both deny one half of the mixture that produced the West and are in a sense two sides of the same coin.

The Modern West is built upon the shattered fragments of the original Catholic synthesis. I suspect that only Catholicism could unite it again.

Time for a new Renaissance, perhaps?
