“Busting” Protestant Myths and Self-Serving Fabrications About the True Origin of the Catholic Church

In sum, the Roman Catholic Church was alive and kicking 250 years (since the fall of Jerusalem) before Constantine.

The bishop in Rome had authority, and the early Church recognized both apostolic succession and in particular the unique succession of the Petrine office.

What Constantine did was provide religious asylum in Rome to Christians who had previously been persecuted.

In addition, the early Christians worshiped on Sunday well before Constantine because Christianity is ordered to the new creation not the first creation.

Therefore, it is obvious and beyond argument that Constantine did not found the Roman Catholic Church through either the Edict of Milan or in his influence on the Council of Sardica.

The claim is a myth and should be rejected as propaganda meant to further schismatic religions.
