“This statement is rooted in the hyper Paganism of the time of Constantine.”
Who taught you this nonsense? What is this based on? Read Homilies LXXIII & LXXXI on the Gospel according to John by +John Chrysostomos.
As for the quote I posted, it’s from the 14th century, not the 4th.
“As for the quote I posted, its from the 14th century, not the 4th.”
Much of the Catholic church literature is based on the mistakes and wickedness and corruption of Emperor Constantine who was strongly rooted in the Paganism of his time, namely the 4th century A.D. All the Catholic literature have continued with the same confusion. I do not have time to read the homilies of your various church fathers from various time periods. My convictions is based on my extensive readings and searchings of the King James version of the Bible and the Book of Mormon.
The prophet Daniel was able to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. The last part had to do with the feet of the image that was part iron and part clay. This was probably meant to represent the Roman Empire in its decline. The Catholic church was part of that. Then we see that in Daniel 2:34 “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.”
That stone that smashed the image is represented by “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” which was established on April 6, 1830 under the direction of Jesus. I am a member of this church.
