What Is
The WORD of GOD?
CHRISTIAN FLAG WAVING CHRISTIAN BIBLE HEADER CENTERCHRISTIAN FLAG WAVING CHRISTIAN
CHRISTIPEDIA™
Statement On The Holy Scriptures;
‘Lens’ Through Which ALL Knowledge Is Understood;

THE WORD of GOD, AXIOM-1:
    "IF" there exists any such thing as 'The Word of God'; [and ALL evidence proves such does exist:]

    "THEN" by inherent definition - it must be "GOD-BREATHED!"

      (Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable - NEVER FAILING - and ALL CONQUERING!)

      DEDUCTING the above from the simple fact: That GOD EQUATES HIS WORD WITH HIMSELF!

        "In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, . . ." John 1:1 (and other Scriptures),
    Thus 'GOD'S WORD' can have no lesser standard than that stated;


    "GOD'S WORD MUST" THEREFORE BE:

      As true in history, archeology, geography, Earth science, medical science, nutrition, gerontology, agriculture, botany, astronomy, physics, chemistry, climatology, government, law, psychology, sociology - and every subject it touches - as in Theology, Divinity and Doctrine:

    And "IF IT BE NOT" - true in ALL subjects mentioned above; and And "IF IT BE NOT"

      Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable in EVERY FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE:
    Whatever else such writing may be, it cannot be ‘The Incomparable Word’ of the Great Creator God!

God's Eternal Guarantee!
"Heaven and Earth Shall Pass Away;
But 'MY WORDS', SHALL NOT, PASS AWAY!"

-- Jesus of Nazareth, "The Messiah!" AD-33 (Matthew 5:18)

Dr. Alexander Cruden

Dr. Cruden Finished the First Complete Bible Concordance!

The "IDEA" of a concordance began in 1100's. Bible Scholars worked for 600 years;
Sometimes working in groups; some as lone Ministers;
Often spending "ALL" their spare time for their "LIFETIME!"

Alexander Cruden, an extremely dedicated Scholar,
finally got it FINISHED - about the time George Washington was born (1730's)

[NOTE: It would take one person - all day, six-days a week - 1500 YEARS,
To complete the Exhaustive Concordance!
LET'S APPRECIATE IT!

      Revivalist John Foxe

    FOXE'S BOOK of MARTYRS: BOOK of All AGES!

    PREFACE to EACH CHAPTER:

      The object of "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" was to give a brief history of persecution from the New Testament to the preset time.

      He began with martyrdom of John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospels; Deacon Stephen and Apostle James in the Book of Acts, then followed the recorded events to the current age.

      Please know that in greatest probability, that the vast majority of Martyrs are unknown except to God, and are not recorded in history as Jesus stated in declaring their "Righteous Blood from Abel to His Own.

      John Foxe recorded the History of martyrs to his age of 1830, . . . which was the "BIRTH of the SECOND GREAT AWAKENING" in the English-Speaking world.

        It is not known, whether Foxes Book of Martyrs inspired "The SECOND GREAT AWAKENING" or the "The SECOND GREAT AWAKENING" inspired Foxe to write the history of the martyrs . . .

        . . . but surely they are connected!

        It seems, Foxes Book of Martyrs inspired "The SECOND GREAT AWAKENING"

        ***PLEASE NOTE FURTHER:
        The Famous "Foxes Book of Martyrs"
        Is nothing more than,
        HEBREWS CHAPTER-11 carried through the ages!


      May a resurgence of study of those who've gone on before . . . inspire ALL of us . . . to be MUCH MORE willing to SACRIFICE . . . STAND UP-&-SPEAK OUT . . . to be BE PERSECUTED . . .

      . . . and there is ample opportunity IF WE WILL STAND UP TO

      . . . the OPPRESSION of Godless Governments and Politically Correct Police . . . the Anti-Christ Atheists, the Homosexual and PRO-GAY Forces, the Evolutionists, the Child Molesters and Porn-Producing Moguls, the Christ-Haters who FORBID the use of HIS NAME in the Public Arena!

      May we give out all, even if it be the ultimate Sacrifice for the Lord Jesus Christ! in this modern, Godless age of rabid debauchery.

      "REPENT! FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A HAND!"

    Modern Persecution is NOT Modern!

      In all ages, we find the sinful disposition of human nature is to persecute the Godly! . . . beginning CAIN killing ABEL! (Didn't take long to manifest, did it?)

      Even the saved disposition of human nature is to "Ebb and Flow with the Seasons" . . . as we find the Church in every age "waxes and wanes" . . .

        . . .even the Great Churches such as Ephesus led by John the Apostle . . ."lost that FIRST LOVE" (Rev 2:1-4) . . . and the Great Church at Jerusalem DISINTEGRATED and SCATTERED in the face of the Persecution (Acts 6:1-4), . . .

        . . . even as the PURITAN-PILGRIMS persecuted by King James FLED to the New World,

        . . . Whereby GREAT PERSECUTION always produces GREAT REVIVAL . . . even as Great Revival always produces GREAT PEACE-&-PROSPERITY . . .

        . . . Which Great Peace-&-Prosperity produces "LUKEWARMNESS - that is LOSS of FIRST LOVE, LOSS of URGENCY-&-FERVENCY, LOSS of Willingness to SACRIFICE, LOSS of EVANGELISM . . .

          [NOTE ASIDE: Is it not AMAZING to you, that Christ gave us SO FEW works-tasks-deeds to actually do . . . one of which is to "GO TWO-by-TWO into the STREETS-&-LANES of the cities. . . and the HIGHWAYS-&-HEDGES of the hinterland . . .

          . . . and COMPEL THEM to come in (come into God's Kingdom, by New Birth); . . . that MY HOUSE MIGHT BE FULL!

          When this historian was young (1950's) it was not known of any Baptist Church but what trained Soul-Winners and went Soul-Winning every week as faithfully as Sunday Morning Preaching!

          By AD-2,000, one was doing well to find one Baptist Church within 100 miles that still trained Soul-Winners and went out Two-by-Two as faithfully as their Sunday Morning "Sermonette."

          ONE SIMPLE QUESTION:

          With Christ's Commands so few, and this Command to go Soul-winning so clear, and so needed by so many local Churches today, WHY DO 99.99% OF ALL LOCAL CHURCHES BLATANTLY DISOBEY?

          END-NOTE-ASIDE]

      Back to the Ebb-&-Flow-Cycle of Church Life:

        Great REVIVAL produces Great Peace and Prosperity . . .

        . . . Which Great Peace-&-Prosperity produces "LUKEWARMNESS - that is LOSS of FIRST LOVE, LOSS of URGENCY-&-FERVENCY, LOSS of Willingness to SACRIFICE, LOSS of EVANGELISM . . .

        . . . Producing a Church which says: "we are RICH .... and increased with GOODS .... and have need of nothing" .... (Rev 3: 20-23 Laodicea)

        . . . Which conditions allow the RISE of EVIL OPPOSITION and GREAT PERSECUTION . . . and eventually the Church on its KNEES crying out to God causes REVIVAL . . .


      Foxes Book of Martyrs shows to the modern-western Blessed, Peaceful and Prosperous Church, the TERRIBLE PERSECUTION that is SURELY ON THE WAY . . . as they have allowed the Peace-&-Prosperity to produce LUKEWARMNESS!

      USA, and Western World BEWARE! Lukewarmness is pervasive and the persecution is prospering in every land!

        INDISPUTABLY: There is "BLOOD-BATH" Ahead!

        INDISPUTABLY: Christian Blood will bathe the streets of America's cities BEFORE Christ Comes . . .

      As Apostle Paul warned: "It is HIGH TIME the Church awakes out of sleep! . . . that JUDGEMENT BEGINS at the House of God . . . as Jesus warned "While Good men slept . . . the ENEMY SOWED TARES among the WHEAT!

      As surely as John the Baptist Preached the Kingdom of God is at hand, the OLD TIME BIBLE PREACHERS who see the error of TV-Celebrity-Religious Leadership . . . and of "POP-CULTURE" CHURCHES . . .

      . . . the Old Bible Preachers "SEE" the day of America's Judgment near at hand . . .

      to be administered by the Sword of Islam!

        May you and I, do what we can, preaching with Jonah: "REPENT! Or yet 40 years ere Christian America be overthrown!"

      First Persecution, Under Nero, 3 1/2 Years: AD 64-67;

        The first persecution of the Church outside of Jerusalem - by the Romans - began in the year AD-64 under Caesar Nero, the SIXTH Emperor of Rome, in the SIXTH century of Rome, in the SIXTH decade of the Christ;

        This monarch reigned for the space of five years, with tolerable credit to himself, but then gave way to the greatest extravagancy of temper, and to the most atrocious barbarities. Among other diabolical whims, he ordered that the city of Rome should be set on fire, which order was executed by his officers, guards, and servants.

        While the imperial city was in flames, he went up to the tower of Macaenas, Caesar Nero played upon his harp, sung the song of the burning of Troy, and openly declared that 'he wished the ruin of all things before his death.'

        Besides the noble pile, called the Circus, many other palaces and houses were consumed; several thousands perished in the flames, were smothered in the smoke, or buried beneath the ruins.

        This dreadful conflagration continued nine days; when Nero, finding that his conduct was greatly blamed, and a severe odium cast upon him, determined to lay the whole upon the Christians, at once to excuse himself, and have an opportunity of glutting his sight with new cruelties.

        This was the occasion of the first persecution; and the barbarities exercised on the Christians were such as even excited the commiseration of the Romans themselves.

        Nero even refined upon cruelty, and contrived all manner of punishments for the Christians that the most infernal imagination could design.

        In particular:

          >> he had some sewed up in skins of wild beasts,

          >> then worried by dogs until they expired;

          >> others dressed in shirts made stiff with wax, fixed to axletrees, and set on fire in his gardens, in order to illuminate them


        This persecution was general throughout the whole Roman Empire; but it rather increased . . . than diminished . . . the spirit of Christianity.

        In the course of it, [1]Apostle Paul, [2]Apostle Peter and [3]James the Just were martyred.

        THE FIRST PERSECUTION UNDER NERO

        The first of these ten persecutions was stirred up by Nero Domitius, the sixth emperor before mentioned, about the year of our Lord threescore and seven.

        The tyrannous rage of which emperor was so fierce against the Christians, as Eusebius recordeth, that a man might then see cities lie full of men's bodies, the old there lying together with the young, and the dead bodies of women cast out naked, without all reverence of that sex, in the open streets, &c.

        Likewise Orosius, writing of the said Nero, saith, that he was the first which in Rome did raise up persecution against the Christians; and not only in Rome, but also through all the provinces thereof;

        thinking to abolish and to destroy the whole name of Christians in all places, &c. Whereunto accordeth moreover the testimony of Hierom upon Daniel, saying, that many there were of the Christians in those days, which, seeing the filthy abominations and intolerable cruelty of Nero, thought that he should be antichrist.

        The Martyrdom of St. Peter

        In this persecution, among many other saints, the blessed apostle Peter was condemned to death, and crucified, as some do write, at Rome; albeit other some, do doubt thereof; concerning whose life and history, because it is sufficiently described in the text of the Gospel, and in the Acts of the Apostles, I need not here to make any great repetition thereof.

        As touching the cause and maimer of his death, divers there be which make relation, as Hierom, Egesippus, Eusebius, Abdias, and others, although they do not all precisely agree in the time.

        The words of Hierom be these: Simon Peter, the son of Jona, of the province of Galilee, and of the town of Bethsaida, the brother of Andrew, &c., after he had been bishop of the church of Antioch,

        [A] and had preached to the dispersion of them that believed, of the circumcision, in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, in the second year of Claudius the emperor, (which was the year of our Lord forty and four,) came to Rome to withstand Simon Magus, and there kept the priestly chair the space of five and twenty years,

        [U]until the last year of the aforesaid Nero, which was the fourteenth year of his reign, of whom he was crucified, his head being down, and his feet upward; himself so requiring, because he was (he said) unworthy to be crucified after the same form and manner as the Lord was, &c.

        Egesippus prosecuting this matter something more at large, and Abdias also, (if any authority is to be given to his book, who following not only the sense, but also the very form of words of Egesippus in this history, seemeth to be extracted out of him, and of other authors,) saith,

        [T]that Simon Magus being then a great man with Nero, and his president and keeper of his life, was required upon a time to be present at the raising up of a certain noble young man in Rome, of Nero's kindred, lately departed;

        whereas Peter also was desired to come to the re viving of the said personage. But when Magus, in the presence of Peter, could not do it, then Peter, calling upon the name of the Lord Jesus, did raise him up, and restored him to his mother;

        Whereby the estimation of Simon Magus began greatly to decay, and to be detested in Rome. Not long after the said Magus threatened the Romans that he would leave the city, and in their sight fly away from them into heaven.

        So the day being appointed, Magus taking his wings in the mount Capitolinus, sought to fly in the air; but Peter, by the power of the Lord Jesus, brought him down headlong to the ground, by the which fall his legs and joints were broken, and he thereupon died.

        Then Nero, sorrowing for the death of him, sought matter against Peter to put him to death. Which, when the people perceived, they entreated Peter with much ado that he would fly the city.

        Peter, through their importunity at length persuaded, prepared himself to avoid.

          But coming to the gate, he saw the Lord Christ come to meet him, to whom he, worshipping, said, Lord, whither dost thou go?

          To whom Jesus answered and said, "I am come again to be crucified."

          By this Peter, perceiving his own suffering to be understood, returned back into the city again, and so was he crucified in manner as is before declared.

          And this out of Egesippus.

        PETER'S WIFE CRUCIFIED

          Eusebius, moreover, writing of the death, not only of Peter, but also of his wife, affirmeth that Peter, seeing his wife going to her martyrdom, (belike as he was yet hanging upon the cross,) was greatly joyous and glad thereof,

          who, crying unto her with a loud voice, and calling her by her name, bade her remember the Lord Jesus. Such was then, (saith Eusebius,) the blessed bond of marriage among the saints of God. And thus much of Peter.

          Paul the apostle, which before was called Saul, after his great travail and unspeakable labours in promoting the gospel of Christ, suffered also in this first persecution under Nero, and was beheaded.

          Among his other manifold labours and travails in spreading the doctrine of Christ, he won Sergius Paulus, the proconsul of Cyprus, to the faith of Christ: whereupon he took his name, as some suppose, turned from Saulus to Paulus.

          After he had passed through divers places and countries in his laborious peregrinations, he took to him Barnabas, and went up to Jerusalem to Peter, James, and John, where he was ordained and sent out with Barnabas to preach unto the Gentiles.

          And because it is in the Acts of the Apostles sufficiently comprehended, concerning the admirable conversion and conversation of this most worthy apostle, that which remaineth of the rest of his history;

          I will here add, how the said apostle Paul, Acts xxviii., the five and twentieth year after the passion of the Lord, in the second year of Nero, at what time Festus ruled in Jewry, was sent up in bonds to Rome, where he, remaining in his own lodgings two years together, disputed daily against the Jews, proving Christ to be come.

          And here is to be noted, that after his first answer or purgation there made at Rome, the emperor Nero, not yet fully confirmed in his empire, and yet not bursting out into those mischiefs which histories report of him,

          he was at that time by Nero discharged and dismissed to preach the gospel in the west parts, and about the coasts of Italy, as he himself writing unto Timothy afterward, in his second apprehension, in his Second Epistle, chap. iv. 16, 17, witnesseth:

            "At my first answer no man stood with rue, but all men forsook me. I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion."

          In which place, by the lion, he plainly meaneth Nero. And afterwards, likewise, he saith, I was delivered from the mouth of the lion, &c.

          And again, The Lord hath delivered me out from all evil works, and hath saved me unto his heavenly kingdom, &c.; speaking this, because he perceived then the time of his martyrdom to be near at hand. For in the same Epistle before, he saith, I am now offered up, and the time of my dissolution draweth on.

          Thus, then, this worthy preacher and messenger of the Lord, in the fourteenth year of Nero, and the same day in which Peter was crucified, (although not in the same year, as some write, but in the next year following,) Paul was beheaded at Rome for the testimony of Christ, and was buried in the way of Ostia, the seven and thirtieth year after the passion of the Lord.

          He wrote nine Epistles to seven churches: to the Romans, one; to the Corinthians, two; to the Galatians, one; to the Ephesians, one; to the Philippians, one; to the Colossians, one; to the Thessalonians, two. Moreover, he wrote to his disciples: to Timothy, two; to Titus, one; to Philemon, one; to the Hebrews, one.

          As touching the time and order of the death and martyrdom of Saint Paul, as Eusebius, Hierom, Maximus, and other authors do but briefly pass it over;

          So Abdias, speaking more largely of the same, doth say, that after the crucifying of Peter, and the ruin of Simon Magus, Paul yet remaining in free custody, was dismissed and delivered at that time from martyrdom by God's permission, that all the Gentiles might be replenished with preaching of the gospel by him.

          And the same Abdias proceeding in his story, declareth moreover, that as Paul was thus occupied at Rome, he was accused to the emperor, not only for teaching new doctrine, but also for stirring up sedition against the empire.

          For this he being called before Nero, and demanded to show the order and manner of his doctrine, there declared what his doctrine was:

            To teach all men peace and charity, how to love one another, how to prevent one another in honour;

            [For] rich men not to be puffed up in pride, nor to put their trust in their treasures, but in the living God; mean men to be contented with food and raiment, and with their present state; poor men to rejoice in their poverty with hope; fathers to bring up their children in the fear of God; children to obey their parents; husbands to love their wives;

            [For] wives to be subject to their husbands; citizens and subjects to give their tribute unto Caesar, and to be subject to their magistrates; masters to be courteous, not churlish, to their servants; servants to deal faithfully with their masters: and this to be the sum of his teaching.

            Which his doctrine he received not of men, nor by men, but by Jesus Christ, and the Father of glory, which spake to him from heaven;

            [For]the Lord Jesus saying to him, that he should go and preach his name, and that he would be with him, and would be the Spirit of life to all that believed in him, and that whatsoever he did or said he would justify it, etc.


          After Paul had thus declared unto the emperor, shortly after, sentence of death was pronounced against him, that he should be beheaded. (Illegal to crucify Roman Citizens which Paul was)

          Unto whose execution then Nero sent two of his esquires, Ferega and Parthemius, to bring him word of his death. They coming to Paul, instructing then the people, desired him to pray for them, that they might believe.

          This done, the soldiers came and led him out of the city to the place of execution, where he, after his prayers made, gave his neck to the sword.

          To Apostles Peter, his wife and Paul, these names may be added:

            >> 4. Erastus, chamberlain of Corinth;

            >> 5. Aristarchus the Macedonian, convert of Apostle Paul,

            >> 6. Trophimus, an Ephesian, convert of Apostle Paul, and fellow-laborer with him;

            >> 7. Joseph called Barsabas,

            >> 8. Ananias the bishop of Damascus;

            >> each were of "The Seventy" called and trained by Jesus Christ.

      BLOOD of the MARTYRS, SEED of the CHURCH!

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10

      Second Persecution, Under Domitian, A.D. 81-96;

      The Emperor Domitian, who was naturally inclined to cruelty, first slew his brother, and then raised the second persecution against the Christians.

      In his rage he put to death some of the Roman senators, some through malice; and others to confiscate their estates.

      Then Domitian decreed that in 30 days, the Senate would confirm an edict to kill all Jews of the lineage of David, and Christians in the Roman Empire,

      Flavia Domitilla - a rather young Christian convert - convinced her husband to stand up for the Jews and Christians.

      When there were only 5 days left until the edict would be voted on by the Senate, she convinced him to commit suicide in order to postpone the Senate vote, in hopes that God would bring a miracle in the extra time.

      Since her husband Clemens was the Roman Consul, if he were to die, another Consul would have to be elected before the Senate could pass any decisions. It took a long time to elect a new Consul, so this was one way he could help save the Jews and Christians.

      However, for his attempt to defend the Christians and Jews, Domitian executed Titus Flavius Clemens the next day. The plan worked as far as putting the Roman Senate on hold, and her steward Stephanus was able to assassinate Domitian before the decree was finalized.

      She was banished by her own relative in government to the prison island Pandataria, where she died mourning her husband

    Among the numerous martyrs that suffered during this persecution were:

        >> Simeon, bishop of Jerusalem, who was crucified; a

        >> Apostle John, who was boiled in oil, and afterward was able to be Bishop at Ephesus;

        >> when Flavia, the daughter of a Roman senator, was likewise banished as stated above, a law was made,

          "That no Christian, once brought before the tribunal, should be exempted from punishment without renouncing his religion."

      A variety of fabricated tales were, during this reign, composed in order to injure the Christians. Such was the infatuation of the pagans, that, if famine, pestilence, or earthquakes afflicted any of the Roman provinces, it was laid upon the Christians.


      PAID INFORMERS:

      These persecutions among the Christians increased the number of informers and many, for the sake of gain, swore away the lives of the innocent.


      OATH-TEST of ALLEGIANCE:

      Another hardship was, that when any Christians were brought before the magistrates, a test oath was proposed.

      Some Emperors applied this ONLY to Christians having "official business" with the government. The more radical emperors hired representatives and sent them out to very town and village to make ALL persons take the Oath of Allegiance.

      Usually this oath-test consisted of some form of the following: people were forced to profess under oath:

        [1] Nero is Lord! Or The Lord is Domitian, etc. (whomever the Emperor was)

        [2] And they were commanded to kneel down in public before an "Image of the Emperor" when his Name was given;

        [3] OR they were to kneel down before "The Roman Imperial Standard, a "scepter" like emblem with a Gold Eagle, when commanded;

        [4] OR they were commanded to kneel as above, and to renounce Jesus Christ BEFORE or AFTER the same time;

        [5] Some representatives of Rome and the Caesar would force the people to "burn a sacrifice" - usually some incense, etc.

          Some areas really took to "Caesar Worship" and were such fans of the "Caesars" that they named their towns and cities "Caesar-rea" - such as those from Scripture Caesarea and Caesarea Philippi.

        [6] Whatever the form taken above, they were asked to swear allegiance to in an Oath as follows:

          (a) To ROME (The Beast) - as having ultimate power over their lives, and

          (b) To the EMPEROR as God (False God, False Christ) as the "Living God/Word of God Prophet On Earth!"

            [NEWT NOTE:

            Caesar Worship was NOT in force when Jesus Christ walked the Earth. Rome certainly had great power over their lives, but as with Apostle Paul being a Free-Born Citizen of Rome, he had some powerful privileges as a Roman Citizen.

            Caesar Augustus - the Caesar when Christ was born, and Caesar Tiberias, the Caesar when Christ was Crucified, were neither one worshipped

            The custom was in those days, and before, to honor Caesars after death by giving them a deified status, which they did with Julius and Augustus. (How insane to make a "mere man" - who had aged, shriveled, gotten weak, sick and died perhaps unable to control their urine or bowels - to make them THEIR GOD!)

            However ... the Romans did this, mostly in honor, and the Glory of the deceased Emperor very soon gave way to the GLORY of the NEW EMPEROR!

            This all changed with the demented, near devil-possessed Caesar Nero, and he demanded people observe him as LORD of ALL RIGHT NOW! Nero demanded all to BOW in his PRESENCE, to BOW at his NAME, or even to his IMAGE, or his ROMAN STANDARD (the Gold Eagle) at home and abroad.

            This practice was continued by the most arrogant and powerful emperors until Constantine the Great who became a true and genuine Christian.

            ***If you have ANY DOUBT as to the Genuine Conversion of Constantine, (a) IGNORE all scholars-commentators (including this one) and (b)READ CONSTANTINE IN HIS OWN WORDS as he wrote to many underlings and the Roman Senate OVER MANY YEARS, and (c) OBSERVE HIS PRACTICES . . . what he did with his TIME and his MONEY and his POWER!

            [END NEWT NOTE]:


        [7] Those who "passed" their Allegiance-Test were given one of two "proofs" to prove to any and all Roman authorities that they were loyal Roman citizens:

        [8] Loyal subjects could opt for a tiny "brand" on their forehead - a mark of either the

          (a) stamp-seal-symbol of Rome the Empire,

          (b) or the Name of the Emperor,

          (c) or the Number of the Emperor's Name;


        [9] All slaves were forced to take the "brand-mark"; Many others took it so as to NOT have to carry the paper-card one with them at all times, or even lose it, or have it stolen.

          >> ID Theft has LONG been a problem in this world!


        [10] Free Citizens who chose NOT to be branded on the forehead were given an OFFICIAL CARD with (a), (b), (c) of number [8] above, on the card with the name, town of the citizen etc.

          >> In some cases the brand was safest, not only because of theft, loss etc.;

          >> If the Roman authorities really had in for a person, or wanted their house, land, business, wife, etc., they would ask to see one's official paper-card;

          >> Then crumple it up, or burn it, then declare: 'We're gonna have to take you in. You don't any papers showing loyal citizenship!'


        [11] Free citizens were ORDERED BY LAW to carry their "Official Card" with them, available to be seen at all times in pubic (which they called "having in your right hand" - as we English call "handy!");

        [12] Roman Citizens had to carry their card at all times IN ORDER TO BUY, SELL and DO BUSINESS!

        [13] For those who REFUSED to take the Oath-Test, death was pronounced against them, immediately and on the spot, perhaps in front of children, and for sure in front of neighbors;

          (a) As long as the Roman Representative had either an "OFFICIAL IMAGE" of the of the Emperor OR the OFFICIAL ROMAN IMPERIAL STANDARD - the Gold Eagle)

          (b) They had complete authority ON THAT SPOT - in ANY town in ANY nation in servitude to Rome, to DECIDE if the slave-or-citizen LIVED or DIED;

          (c) Thus the proper authority (False Prophet) in the PRESENCE of the IMAGE of the BEAST (Empire) had the POWER to decide who lived or died . . .

        [14] For those who OPENLY PROFESSED CHRIST, death was pronounced against them, immediately and on the spot, perhaps in front of children, and for sure in front of neighbors;

        [15] Not all Roman emperors did this. In fact, only 9 (including Domitian) of approximately 30 over the next 260 years.


          >> Many Christians simply ran for the mountains and hid in the caves as Christ told them in Matt 24, Mark 13, and Luke 17, 21.

          >> Those who renounced Christ in public were FORBIDDEN to worship with other Christians in many cases and refused Holy Communion in all cases!

          >> Once the beastly Emperor died, and a more reasonable one took the throne, Christians came out of hiding, and the Christians who "PASSED the OATH-TEST" - now renounced Caesar and professed Christ again!

          >> Some Christians said those who had "TAKEN THE ROMAN MARK of the BEAST - either by brand or by card in their right hand - had FOREVER FORFEITED eternal life and COULD NOT be accepted into the membership of the local Church!

          >> Other Christians said the MARK of true Christianity was to FORGIVE and voted toRE-ADMIT them to the membership.

          >> Obviously, people disagreed, and ALWAYS . . . family and best friends and neighbors were part of the discussion.

        [16] This was called the Doctrine of RE-ADMISSION and it dominated the Church for a full 300 years, until the last ones who had renounced Christ under Diocletian, (in the years around AD-300, just before Constantine) finally passed away!

          [NEWT-NOTE: We would have sided with the forgivers for three reasons:

          (1) For their CHILDREN! It would allow their CHILDREN and GRAND-CHILDREN to be raised by their parents in a good local Church!

          (2) Most of those re-admitted would have GREAT REGRETS and would spend the rest of their lives in the most dedicated service of Christ!

          (3) What those did who denied Christ, WAS NO DIFFERENT THAN APOSTLE PETER . . . and Peter was CHOSEN by Jesus . . . TRAINED by Jesus . . . APPOINTED LEADER by Jesus . . . and was RIGHT THERE WATCHING JESUS GET THE DEATH PENALTY, BEATEN MOCKED etc. . .

          . . . and Jesus didn't even make him take a "Sabbatical" and "re-prove" himself! Peter was still the leader Jesus wanted, and Jesus didn't even FLINCH at keeping Perter as the Head Apostle!

        However, the vast heartache caused by this demanding all citizens PROVE their loyalty to ROME and the EMPEROR in worship to live in peace, buy groceries and sell goods.

          (BY the way, "Emperor Worship, or Government Worship - was and is - submission to, bowing to in submission, doing as commanded by law!

            >> Whether worship-submission to Hitler's Nazis by killing Jews as commanded;

            >> OR modern American Ministers in worship-submission to American Government, MARRYING TWO MEN because the Government says to!


          ***FACT! To Worship is NOT singing, ceremony ritual, etc., (Get out your Hebrew and Greek lexicons and CHECK IT OUT! Check 20 of them! Don;t take someone's word, CHECK THE LEXICONS!

          ***FACT! SEE how the original word for 'Worship' is translated most often, and you'll find Worship is:

            <> kneeling to (submission - peons bow to kings!);

            <> bowing to (the lesser bows to the greater in submission);

            <> to kiss the hand of (showing submission to and willingness to serve);

            <> to work for (seeking the favor of the superior);

            <> and to serve (to do as told);

          ***FACT! Worship is simply GIVING IN. It is OBEDIENCE to all demands made!

          ***FACT! SUBMISSION IS WORSHIP - WORSHIP IS SUBMISSION!

          ***FACT! Most modernists get ADORATION-&-PRAISE of Christ confused with WORSHIP.

          ***FACT! Many who PRAISE and ADORE Christ are NOT in submission to His commands!

          ***FACT! It is these to whom Christ says: WHY call ye me LORD! LORD! (singing or otherwise!) and DO NOT . . . THE THINGS WHICH I SAY!


        MARK OF THE BEAST (ANY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! ROME IN THOSE DAYS;)

        This "MARK of the BEAST-GOVERNMENT" seems radically brutal to us today, in the AD-2000 world of western civilization, and we can't even imagine being forced to do such a thing!

        The truth is the modern world is so blinded by tradition - and the Church so asleep . . . we have ALREADY DONE THIS SEVERAL TIMES OVER!

        EXAMPLES:

          >> NO American BUYS a car, land, house or business, etc., without a "Federal Social Security Number!" . . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark). Your house deed and car titles are WORTHLESS without the STATE MARK (seal)!

          >> NO American SELLS a car, land, house or business etc., without a "Federal Social Security Number!". . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark). Your house deed and car titles are WORTHLESS without the STATE MARK (seal)!

          >> NO American goes to WORK without a "Federal Social Security Number!"

          >> NO American starts a BUSINESS without a "Federal Social Security Number!" . . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark).

          >> NO American DRIVES without their state appointed DRIVERS NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number" as well!. . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark).

          >> NO American gets MARRIED without their state appointed NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number" as well!. . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark).

          >> NO American invests - STOCKS-BONDS without their state appointed NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number" as well!. . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark).

          >> NO American opens a BANK ACCOUNT without their state appointed NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number" as well!

          >> NO American gets a BANK LOAN without their state appointed NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number" as well!

          >> NO American STARTS a BANK without their state appointed NUMBER and that requires a "Federal Social Security Number as well!. . . AND the STATE SEAL (Mark).

          >>>>> There are a thousand more examples!

        The ONLY difference between the Beast of Rome and the Beast of Washington DC is the American Beast does not require (a)President Worship, and (b)has not yet REQUIRED American Citizens to RECOGNIZED ALL RACES, GENDERS, NATIONALITIES and RELIGIONS EQUAL

        *** Dear Friend:

        The day is radically near when Americans, to have FULL-CITIZENSHIP and be allowed to do all the things above, will have to SIGN an OATH of NEUTRALITY

          (a) All religions, all Gods, all Christ's are equal;

          (b) And having NO religion, NO God and NO Christ is EQUAL to having ANY God . . . or MANY Gods!

          (c) No Religion, God or Christ is ABOVE THE STATE! No matter what one believes in their heart, AMERICAN LAW is above all, . . .


        The American Government - now Atheist, Evolutionist, Secular, PRO-HOMO, PRO-BABY-KILLING, ANTI-CHRIST, CHRIST-denying, and Christ's Name forbidden in ALL public venues, even Military funerals by Christian Chaplains!


        Our American Godless-Government will SOON be saying:

          >> NO MINISTER can have a STATE LICENSE TO PREACH UNLESS he accepts all religions as equal, of any god, no god, or many gods!

          >> NO MINISTER can have a STATE LICENSE TO MARRY UNLESS he accepts all genders as equal AND AGREES TO HAVE THEIR CEREMONIES: marry two men, and eventually 10 men, several men and women and transvestites, and people with animals, and someday people and "sex machines" will marry!

          >> NO GROUP can have a STATE PERMIT TO BUILD A CHURCH-HOUSE UNLESS they accept all religions as equal: any god, no god or many gods!

          >> NO MAN-&-WOMAN can have the STATE LICENSE TO MARRY UNLESS they accept THE STATE'S DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE, of all genders as equal: two men marrying, and eventually 10 men marrying, several men and women and transvestites marrying, and people marrying animals, and someday people marrying "sex machines" etc.!

          >> Christians who resist will be persecuted to the greatest degrees, . . .at first persecuted FINANCIALLY - by forbidding them to all manner of positions and licenses.

          >> Then eventually, Christian blood will flow in the streets of American cities, and Christians will be locked in jails, and that day is closer than almost any can imagine!

          >> The list of Christian restrictions will ever continue UNTIL the nation is conquered by the Muslims, . . . or the Christians get serious, stand-up for Christ and TAKE THE COUNTRY BACK!

      Difference between Roman and American MARK of the BEAST!

        The ONLY difference between the Ancient Roman Mark/Symbol/Number - which in both cases - signifies GOVERNMENT APPROVAL TO BUY, SELL and DO BUSINESS:

        To get the ROMAN number-name-symbol-stamp-seal of APPROVAL:

          >> Citizens had to AFFIRM Emperor Worship AND/OR RENOUNCE of Christ!


          To get the AMERICAN number-name-symbol-stamp-seal of APPROVAL in 2012:

            >> Citizens DO NOT YET have to AFFIRM Emperor Worship OR RENOUNCE of Christ! . . .

            >> However, all manner of Government employees, from Social Workers to Counselors, to Psychologists to School teachers and college professors and children's workers of all kinds - and even Chaplains MUST RENOUNCE THE USE OF:

              ** CHRIST'S NAME;

              ** CHRIST'S WORD;

              ** Their public personal testimony FOR CHRIST!

            Otherwise, the "SYSTEM" of forcing citizens to have the official Government issued Social Security Number, State Seal, State Stamp, State Name, is well established and hardly ever thought of as a POSSIBLE GREAT WEAPON of the evil one!

            We Americans have ALREADY accepted ALL RELIGIONS and ALL GODS and ALL CHRISTS and ALL BIBLES EQUAL in the Constitution, in the First Amendment!

            When the fullness of the US GOVERNMENT "Approval Marks-Numbers" REQUIRE Americans declaring all Christ's equal and same-sex marriage . . . most Americans will accept it without blinking an eye . . .

            . . . and KEEP going to Church singing worthlessly . . .

            . . . completely unaware that have TAKEN THE MARK OF THE BEAST SO FORBIDDEN in the Revelation!

            FACT! EVERY LAND in this world has had their SOIL soaked with Christian Martyr's Blood!

            FACT! It is America's turn, and must occur, before the end occurs.

            FACT! IF God does't punish the USA, He will surely have to ASK SODOM and GOMORRAH to Forgive His UNFAIR BOMBING of their cities!



        Back to Domitian and the Second Great Roman Persecution!


      The following were the most remarkable among the numerous martyrs who suffered during this persecution.

        **Dionysius, the Areopagite, Bishop of Athens, Convert of Apostle Paul.

          He was an Athenian by birth, and educated in all the useful and ornamental literature of Greece. He then travelled to Egypt to study astronomy, and made very particular observations on the great and supernatural eclipse, which happened at the time of our Savior's crucifixion.

          The sanctity of his conversation and the purity of his manners recommended him so strongly to the Christians in general, that he was appointed by election as bishop of Athens.

        **Nicodemus, a benevolent Christian of some distinction, suffered at Rome during the rage of Domitian's persecution.

        **Protasius and

        **Gervasius were martyred at Milan.

        **Timothy was the celebrated disciple of St. Paul, and bishop of Ephesus, where he zealously governed the Church after Apostle John.

          At this period, as the pagans were about to celebrate a Pagan feast called Catagogion. Timothy, met the procession, and severely reproved them for their behaviour and false worship, which so exasperated the people . . .

          . . .that they fell upon him with their clubs, and beat him in so dreadful a manner.

          He died from the beating two days later.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, CH-2

      The Third Persecution, Under Trajan, A.D. 108, - Hadrian 138;

        In the third persecution Pliny the Second, a man learned and famous, seeing the lamentable slaughter of Christians, and moved therewith to pity, wrote to Trajan, certifying him that there were many thousands of them daily put to death, of which none did any thing contrary to the Roman laws worthy of persecution.

        "The whole account they gave of their crime or error (whichever it is to be called) amounted only to this-viz. that they were accustomed on a stated day to meet before daylight, and to repeat together a set form of prayer to Christ as a God, and to bind themselves by an obligation-not indeed to commit wickedness;

        but, on the contrary-never to commit theft, robbery, or adultery, never to falsify their word, never to defraud any man: after which it was their custom to separate, and reassemble to partake in common of a harmless meal."

        In this persecution suffered the blessed martyr, Ignatius, who is held in famous reverence among very many. This Ignatius was appointed to the bishopric of Antioch next after Peter in succession. Some do say, that he, being sent from Syria to Rome, because he professed Christ, was given to the wild beasts to be devoured.

        It is also said of him, that when he passed through Asia, being under the most strict custody of his keepers, he strengthened and confirmed the churches through all the cities as he went, both with his exhortations and preaching of the Word of God.

        Accordingly, having come to Smyrna, he wrote to the Church at Rome, exhorting them not to use means for his deliverance from martyrdom, lest they should deprive him of that which he most longed and hoped for.

        "Now I begin to be a disciple. I care for nothing, of visible or invisible things, so that I may but win Christ. Let fire and the cross, let the companies of wild beasts, let breaking of bones and tearing of limbs, let the grinding of the whole body, and all the malice of the devil, come upon me; be it so, only may I win Christ Jesus!"

        And even when he was sentenced to be thrown to the beasts, such as the burning desire that he had to suffer, that he spake, what time he heard the lions roaring, saying: "I am the wheat of Christ: I am going to be ground with the teeth of wild beasts, that I may be found pure bread."

        Trajan being succeeded by Adrian, the latter continued this third persecution with as much severity as his predecessor. About this time Alexander, bishop of Rome, with his two deacons, were martyred; as were Quirinus and Hernes, with their families;

        Zenon, a Roman nobleman, and about ten thousand other Christians.

        In Mount Ararat many were crucified, crowned with thorns, and spears run into their sides, in imitation of Christ's passion. Eustachius, a brave and successful Roman commander, was by the emperor ordered to join in an idolatrous sacrifice to celebrate some of his own victories;

        but his faith (being a Christian in his heart) was so much greater than his vanity, that he nobly refused it. Enraged at the denial, the ungrateful emperor forgot the service of this skilful commander, and ordered him and his whole family to be martyred.

        At the martyrdom of Faustines and Jovita, brothers and citizens of Brescia, their torments were so many, and their patience so great, that Calocerius, a pagan, beholding them, was struck with admiration, and exclaimed in a kind of ecstasy, "Great is the God of the Christians!" for which he was apprehended, and suffered a similar fate.

        Many other similar cruelties and rigors were exercised against the Christians, until Quadratus, bishop of Athens, made a learned apology in their favor before the emperor, who happened to be there and Aristides, a philosopher of the same city, wrote an elegant epistle, which caused Adrian to relax in his severities, and relent in their favor.

        Hadrian dying A.D. 138, was succeeded by Antoninus Pius, one of the most amiable monarchs that ever reigned, and who stayed the persecutions against the Christians.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, #4;

      The Fourth Persecution, Under Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, A.D. 162;

        Emperor Marcus Aurelius, followed about the year of our Lord 161, a man of nature more stern and severe; and, although in study of philosophy and in civil government no less commendable,

        . . . yet, toward the Christians sharp and fierce; by whom was moved the fourth persecution.

        The cruelties used in this persecution were such that many of the spectators shuddered with horror at the sight, and were astonished at the intrepidity of the sufferers.

        Some of the martyrs were made to walk - with their already wounded feet - over thorns, nails, sharp shells, etc., upon their points, others were scourged until their sinews and veins lay bare, and after suffering the most excruciating tortures that could be devised, they were destroyed by the most terrible deaths.

        Germanicus, a young man, but a true Christian, being delivered to the wild beasts on account of his faith, behaved with such astonishing courage that several pagans became converts to a faith which inspired such fortitude.

        Polycarp, the venerable bishop of Smyrna, hearing that persons were seeking for him, escaped, but was discovered by a child. After preparing a feast for the guards who apprehended him, he desired an hour in prayer;

        which being allowed, he prayed with such fervency, that his guards repented before him.

        Polycarp was, however, carried before the proconsul, condemned, and burnt in the market place.

          The proconsul then urged him, saying, "Swear (to the Emperor), and I will release thee; - renounce Christ."

          Polycarp answered, "Eighty and six years have I served him, and he never once wronged me; how then shall I blaspheme my King, Who hath saved me?"

          At the stake to which he was only tied, but not nailed as usual, as he assured them he should stand immovable, the flames, on their kindling the fagots, encircled his body, like an arch, without touching him; and the executioner, on seeing this, was ordered to pierce him with a sword, when so great a quantity of blood flowed out as extinguished the fire.

          But his body, at the instigation of the enemies of the Gospel, especially Jews, was ordered to be consumed in the pile, and the request of his friends, who wished to give it Christian burial, rejected. They nevertheless collected his bones and as much of his remains as possible, and caused them to be decently interred.

          Metrodorus, a minister, who preached boldly, and Pionius, who made some excellent apologies for the Christian faith, were likewise burnt.

          Carpus and Papilus, two worthy Christians, and Agatonica, a pious woman, suffered martyrdom at Pergamopolis, in Asia.

          Felicitatis, an illustrious Roman lady, of a considerable family, and the most shining virtues, was a devout Christian. She had seven sons, whom she had educated with the most exemplary piety.

          Her sons were martyred as follows:

          Januarius, the eldest, was scourged, and pressed to death with weights;

          Felix and Philip, the two next had their brains dashed out with clubs;

          Silvanus, the fourth, was murdered by being thrown from a precipice;

          The three younger sons, Alexander, Vitalis, and Martial, were beheaded.

          After her sons were all dead, the mother was beheaded with the same sword as the three sons killed last.


        Justin, the celebrated philosopher, fell a martyr in this persecution. He was a native of Neapolis, in Samaria, and was born A.D. 103.

          Justin was a great lover of truth, and a universal scholar; he investigated the Stoic and Peripatetic philosophy, and attempted the Pythagorean; but the behavior of its professors disgusting him, he applied himself to the Platonic, in which he took great delight.

          About the year 133, when he was thirty years of age, he became a convert to Christianity, and then, for the first time, perceived the real nature of truth.

          He wrote an elegant epistle to the Gentiles, and employed his talents in convincing the Jews of the truth of the Christian rites; spending a great deal of time in travelling, until he took up his abode in Rome, and fixed his habitation upon the Viminal mount.

          He kept a public school - teaching Christian philosophy, taught many who afterward became great men, and wrote a treatise to confuse heresies of all kinds. As the pagans began to treat the Christians with great severity, Justin wrote his first apology in their favor.

          This piece displays great learning and genius, and occasioned the emperor to publish an edict in favor of the Christians.

          Soon after, he entered into frequent contests with Crescens, a person of a vicious life and conversation, but a celebrated cynic philosopher; and his arguments appeared so powerful, yet disgusting to the cynic, that Crescens resolved on, and in the sequel accomplished, his destruction.

          The second apology of Justin, upon certain severities, gave Crescens the cynic an opportunity of prejudicing the emperor against the writer of it; upon which Justin, and six of his companions, were apprehended.

          Being commanded to sacrifice to the Roman idols, they refused, and were condemned to be scourged, and then beheaded; which sentence was executed with all imaginable severity.


          Several were beheaded for refusing to sacrifice to the image of Jupiter; in particular Concordus, a deacon of the city of Spolito.

          Some of the restless northern nations having risen in arms against Rome, the emperor marched to encounter them. He was, however, drawn into an ambuscade (ambush), and dreaded the loss of his whole army.

          Enveloped with mountains, surrounded by enemies, and perishing with thirst, the pagan deities were invoked in vain; when the men belonging to the militine (militia), or thundering legion, who were all Christians, were commanded to call upon their God for succor.

            A miraculous deliverance immediately ensued; a prodigious quantity of rain fell, which, being caught by the men, and filling their dykes, afforded a sudden and astonishing relief.

            It appears that the storm which miraculously flashed in the face of the enemy so intimidated them, that part deserted to the Roman army; the rest were defeated, and the revolted provinces entirely recovered.

            This affair occasioned the persecution to subside for some time, at least in those parts immediately under the inspection of the emperor;


          [B]but we find that it soon after raged in France, particularly at Lyons, where the tortures to which many of the Christians were put, almost exceed the powers of description.

          The principal of these martyrs were:

            Vetius Agathus, a young man;

            Blandina, a Christian lady, of a weak constitution;

            Sanctus, a deacon of Vienna; red hot plates of brass were placed upon the tenderest parts of his body;

            Biblias, a weak woman, once an apostate.

            Attalus, of Pergamus; and Pothinus, the venerable bishop of Lyons, who was ninety years of age.

          Blandina, on the day when she and the three other champions were first brought into the amphitheater, she was suspended on a piece of wood fixed in the ground, and exposed as food for the wild beasts; at which time, by her earnest prayers, she encouraged others.

          But none of the wild beasts would touch her, so that she was remanded to prison.

          When she was again produced for the third and last time, she was accompanied by Ponticus, a youth of fifteen, and the constancy of their faith so enraged the multitude that neither the sex of the one nor the youth of the other were respected, being exposed to all manner of punishments and tortures.

          Being strengthened by Blandina, he persevered unto death; and she, after enduring all the torments heretofore mentioned, was at length slain with the sword.

          When the Christians, upon these occasions, received martyrdom, they were ornamented, and crowned with garlands of flowers; for which they, in heaven, received eternal crowns of glory.

          It has been said that the lives of the early Christians consisted of "persecution above ground and prayer below ground."

          Their lives are expressed by the Coliseum and the catacombs. Beneath Rome are the excavations which we call the catacombs, which were at once temples and tombs.

          The early Church of Rome might well be called the Church of the Catacombs.

          There are some sixty catacombs near Rome, in which some six hundred miles of galleries have been traced, and these are not all.

          These galleries are about eight feet high and from three to five feet wide, containing on either side several rows of long, low, horizontal recesses, one above another like berths in a ship.

          In these the dead bodies were placed and the front closed, either by a single marble slab or several great tiles laid in mortar. On these slabs or tiles, epitaphs or symbols are graved or painted.

          Both pagans and Christians buried their dead in these catacombs.

          When the Christian graves have been opened the skeletons tell their own terrible tale. Heads are found severed from the body, ribs and shoulder blades are broken, bones are often calcined from fire.

          But despite the awful story of persecution that we may read here, the inscriptions breathe forth peace and joy and triumph.

          Here are a few:

            "Here lies Marcia, put to rest in a dream of peace."

            "Lawrence to his sweetest son, borne away of angels."

            "Victorious in peace and in Christ."

            "Being called away, he went in peace."

          Remember when reading these inscriptions the story the skeletons tell of persecution, of torture, and of fire.

          But the full force of these epitaphs is seen when we contrast them with the pagan epitaphs, such as:

            "Live for the present hour, since we are sure of nothing else."

            "I lift my hands against the gods who took me away at the age of twenty though I had done no harm."

            "Once I was not. Now I am not. I know nothing about it, and it is no concern of mine."

            "Traveler, curse me not as you pass, for I am in darkness and cannot answer."

            The most frequent Christian symbols on the walls of the catacombs, are:

              >> the good shepherd with the lamb on his shoulder,

              >> a ship under full sail,

              >> harps,

              >> anchors,

              >> crowns,

              >> vines,

              >> and above all the fish.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, CH-2

      The Fifth Persecution, Commencing with Severus, A.D. 192;

        Severus, having been recovered from a severe fit of sickness by a Christian, became a great favorer of the Christians in general; but the prejudice and fury of the ignorant multitude prevailing, obsolete laws were put in execution against the Christians.

        The progress of Christianity alarmed the pagans, and they revived the stale calumny of placing accidental misfortunes to the account of its professors, A.D. 192.

        But, though persecuting malice raged, yet the Gospel shone with resplendent brightness; and, firm as an impregnable rock, withstood the attacks of its boisterous enemies with success.

        Tertullian, who lived in this age, informs us that if the Christians had collectively withdrawn themselves from the Roman territories, the empire would have been greatly depopulated.

          >> Victor, bishop of Rome, suffered martyrdom in the first year of the third century, A.D. 201.

          >> Leonidus, the father of the celebrated Origen, was beheaded forbeing a Christian.

          >> Many of Origen's hearers likewise suffered martyrdom; particularly two brothers,

          >> named Plutarchus and Serenus;

          >> another Serenus, Heron, and Heraclides, were beheaded.

          >> Rhais had boiled pitch poured upon her head, and was then burnt,

          >> As was Marcella her mother.

          >> Potainiena, the sister of Rhais, was executed in the same manner as Rhais had been;

          >> but Basilides, an officer belonging to the army, and ordered to attend her execution, became her convert.

            Basilides being, as an officer, required to take a certain oath, refused, saying, that he could not swear by the Roman idols, as he was a Christian.

            Struck with surprise, the people could not, at first, believe what they heard; but he had no sooner confirmed the same, than he was dragged before the judge, committed to prison, and speedily afterward beheaded.

          Irenaeus, bishop of Lyons, was born in Greece, and received both a polite and a Christian education. It is generally supposed that the account of the persecutions at Lyons was written by himself.

          He succeeded the martyr Pothinus as bishop of Lyons, and ruled his diocese with great propriety; he was a zealous opposer of heresies in general, and, about A.D. 187, he wrote a celebrated tract against heresy.

          Victor, the bishop of Rome, wanting to impose the keeping of Easter there, in preference to other places, it occasioned some disorders among the Christians. In particular, Irenaeus wrote him a synodical epistle, in the name of the Gallic churches.

          This zeal, in favor of Christianity, pointed him out as an object of resentment to the emperor; and in A.D. 202, he was beheaded.

          The persecutions now extending to Africa, many were martyred in that quarter of the globe; the most particular of whom we shall mention.

          Perpetua, a married lady, of about twenty-two years. Those who suffered with her were, Felicitas, a married lady, big with child at the time of her being apprehended, and Revocatus, catechumen of Carthage, and a slave.

          The names of the other prisoners, destined to suffer upon this occasion, were Saturninus, Secundulus, and Satur. On the day appointed for their execution, they were led to the amphitheater.

          Satur, Saturninus, and Revocatus were ordered to run the gauntlet between the hunters, or such as had the care of the wild beasts. The hunters being drawn up in two ranks, they ran between, and were severely lashed as they passed.

          Felicitas and Perpetua were stripped, in order to be thrown to a mad bull, which made his first attack upon Perpetua, and stunned her; he then darted at Felicitas, and gored her dreadfully; but not killing them, the executioner did that office with a sword.

          Revocatus and Satur were destroyed by wild beasts; Saturninus was beheaded; and Secundulus died in prison. These executions were in the 205, on the eighth day of March.

          Speratus and twelve others were likewise beheaded; as was Andocles in France. Asclepiades, bishop of Antioch, suffered many tortures, but his life was spared.

          Cecilia, a young lady of good family in Rome, was married to a gentleman named Valerian. She converted her husband and brother, who were beheaded; and the maximus, or officer, who led them to execution, becoming their convert, suffered the same fate.

          The lady was placed naked in a scalding bath, and having continued there a considerable time, her head was struck off with a sword, A.D. 222.

          Calistus, bishop of Rome, was martyred, A.D. 224; but the manner of his death is not recorded;

          Urban, bishop of Rome, met the same fate A.D. 232.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, $6;

      The Sixth Persecution, Under Maximus, A.D. 235;

        A.D. 235, was in the time of Maximinus. In Cappadocia, the president, Seremianus, did all he could to exterminate the Christians from that province.

        The principal persons who perished under this reign were Pontianus, bishop of Rome; Anteros, a Grecian, his successor, who gave offence to the government by collecting the acts of the martyrs, Pammachius and Quiritus, Roman senators, with all their families, and many other Christians; Simplicius, senator;

        Calepodius, a Christian minister, thrown into the Tyber; Martina, a noble and beautiful virgin; and Hippolitus, a Christian prelate, tied to a wild horse, and dragged until he expired.

        During this persecution, raised by Maximinus, numberless Christians were slain without trial, and buried indiscriminately in heaps, sometimes fifty or sixty being cast into a pit together, without the least decency.

        The tyrant Maximinus dying, A.D. 238, was succeeded by Gordian, during whose reign, and that of his successor Philip, the Church was free from persecution for the space of more than ten years;

        but in A.D. 249, a violent persecution broke out in Alexandria, at the instigation of a pagan priest, without the knowledge of the emperor.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, CH-2

      The Seventh Persecution, Under Decius, A.D. 249;

        This was occasioned partly by the hatred he bore to his predecessor Philip, who was deemed a Christian and was partly by his jealousy concerning the amazing increase of Christianity; for the heathen temples began to be forsaken, and the Christian churches thronged.

        These reasons stimulated Decius to attempt the very extirpation of the name of Christian; and it was unfortunate for the Gospel, that many errors had, about this time, crept into the Church: the Christians were at variance with each other; self-interest divided those whom social love ought to have united; and the virulence of pride occasioned a variety of factions.

        The heathens in general were ambitious to enforce the imperial decrees upon this occasion, and looked upon the murder of a Christian as a merit to themselves. The martyrs, upon this occasion, were innumerable; but the principal we shall give some account of.

        Fabian, the bishop of Rome, was the first person of eminence who felt the severity of this persecution. The deceased emperor, Philip, had, on account of his integrity, committed his treasure to the care of this good man.

        But Decius, not finding as much as his avarice made him expect, determined to wreak his vengeance on the good prelate. He was accordingly seized; and on January 20, A.D. 250, he suffered decapitation.

        Julian, a native of Cilicia, as we are informed by St.

        Chrysostom, was seized upon for being a Christian. He was put into a leather bag, together with a number of serpents and scorpions, and in that condition thrown into the sea.

        Peter, a young man, amiable for the superior qualities of his body and mind, was beheaded for refusing to sacrifice to Venus.

        He said, "I am astonished you should sacrifice to an infamous woman, whose debaucheries even your own historians record, and whose life consisted of such actions as your laws would punish. No, I shall offer the true God the acceptable sacrifice of praises and prayers."

        Optimus, the proconsul of Asia, on hearing this, ordered the prisoner to be stretched upon a wheel, by which all his bones were broken, and then he was sent to be beheaded.

        Nichomachus, being brought before the proconsul as a Christian, was ordered to sacrifice to the pagan idols. Nichomachus replied, "I cannot pay that respect to devils, which is only due to the Almighty."

        This speech so much enraged the proconsul that Nichomachus was put to the rack. After enduring the torments for a time, he recanted; but scarcely had he given this proof of his frailty, than he fell into the greatest agonies, dropped down on the ground, and expired immediately.

        Denisa, a young woman of only sixteen years of age, who beheld this terrible judgment, suddenly exclaimed, "O unhappy wretch, why would you buy a moment's ease at the expense of a miserable eternity!" Optimus, hearing this, called to her, and Denisa avowing herself to be a Christian, she was beheaded, by his order, soon after.

        Andrew and Paul, two companions of Nichomachus, the martyr, A.D. 251, suffered martyrdom by stoning, and expired, calling on their blessed Redeemer.

        Alexander and Epimachus, of Alexandria, were apprehended for being Christians: and, confessing the accusation, were beat with staves, torn with hooks, and at length burnt in the fire; and we are informed, in a fragment preserved by Eusebius, that four female martyrs suffered on the same day, and at the same place, but not in the same manner; for these were beheaded.

        Lucian and Marcian, two wicked pagans, though skilful magicians, becoming converts to Christianity, to make amends for their former errors, lived the lives of hermits, and subsisted upon bread and water only.

        After some time spent in this manner, they became zealous preachers, and made many converts. The persecution, however, raging at this time, they were seized upon, and carried before Sabinus, the governor of Bithynia. On being asked by what authority they took upon themselves to preach, Lucian answered,

        'That the laws of charity and humanity obliged all men to endeavor the conversion of their neighbors, and to do everything in their power to rescue them from the snares of the devil.'

        Lucian having answered in this manner, Marcian said, "Their conversion was by the same grace which was given to St. Paul, who, from a zealous persecutor of the Church, became a preacher of the Gospel."

        The proconsul, finding that he could not prevail with them to renounce their faith, condemned them to be burnt alive, which sentence was soon after executed.

        Trypho and Respicius, two eminent men, were seized as Christians, and imprisoned at Nice. Their feet were pierced with nails; they were dragged through the streets, scourged, torn with iron hooks, scorched with lighted torches, and at length beheaded, February 1, A.D. 251.

        Agatha, a Sicilian lady, was not more remarkable for her personal and acquired endowments, than her piety; her beauty was such, that Quintian, governor of Sicily, became enamored of her, and made many attempts upon her chastity without success. In order to gratify his passions with the greater conveniency, he put the virtuous lady into the hands of Aphrodica, a very infamous and licentious woman.

        This wretch tried every artifice to win her to the desired prostitution; but found all her efforts were vain; for her chastity was impregnable, and she well knew that virtue alone could procure true happiness.

        Aphrodica acquainted Quintian with the inefficacy of her endeavors, who, enaged to be foiled in his designs, changed his lust into resentment. On her confessing that she was a Christian, he determined to gratify his revenge, as he could not his passion.

        Pursuant to his orders, she was scourged, burnt with red-hot irons, and torn with sharp hooks. Having borne these torments with admirable fortitude, she was next laid naked upon live coals, intermingled with glass, and then being carried back to prison, she there expired on February 5, 251.

        Cyril, bishop of Gortyna, was seized by order of Lucius, the governor of that place, who, nevertheless, exhorted him to obey the imperial mandate, perform the sacrifices, and save his venerable person from destruction; for he was now eighty-four years of age.

        The good prelate replied that as he had long taught others to save their souls, he should only think now of his own salvation. The worthy prelate heard his fiery sentence without emotion, walked cheerfully to the place of execution, and underwent his martyrdom with great fortitude.

        The persecution raged in no place more than the Island of Crete; for the governor, being exceedingly active in executing the imperial decrees, that place streamed with pious blood.

        Babylas, a Christian of a liberal education, became bishop of Antioch, A.D. 237, on the demise of Zebinus. He acted with inimitable zeal, and governed the Church with admirable prudence during the most tempestuous times.

        The first misfortune that happened to Antioch during his mission, was the siege of it by Sapor, king of Persia; who, having overrun all Syria, took and plundered this city among others, and used the Christian inhabitants with greater severity than the rest, but was soon totally defeated by Gordian.

        After Gordian's death, in the reign of Decius, that emperor came to Antioch, where, having a desire to visit an assembly of Christians, Babylas opposed him, and absolutely refused to let him come in.

        The emperor dissembled his anger at that time; but soon sending for the bishop, he sharply reproved him for his insolence, and then ordered him to sacrifice to the pagan deities as an expiation for his offence.

        This being refused, he was committed to prison, loaded with chains, treated with great severities, and then beheaded, together with three young men who had been his pupils. A.D. 251.

        Alexander, bishop of Jerusalem, about this time was cast into prison on account of his religion, where he died through the severity of his confinement.

        Julianus, an old man, lame with the gout, and Cronion, another Christian, were bound on the backs of camels, severely scourged, and then thrown into a fire and consumed. Also forty virgins, at Antioch, after being imprisoned, and scourged, were burnt.

        In the year of our Lord 251, the emperor Decius having erected a pagan temple at Ephesus, he commanded all who were in that city to sacrifice to the idols. This order was nobly refused by seven of his own soldiers, viz. Maximianus, Martianus, Joannes, Malchus, Dionysius, Seraion, and Constantinus.

        The emperor wishing to win these soldiers to renounce their faith by his entreaties and lenity, gave them a considerable respite until he returned from an expedition.

        During the emperor's absence, they escaped, and hid themselves in a cavern; which the emperor being informed of at his return, the mouth of the cave was closed up, and they all perished with hunger.

        Theodora, a beautiful young lady of Antioch, on refusing to sacrifice to the Roman idols, was condemned to the stews, that her virtue might be sacrificed to the brutality of lust.

        Didymus, a Christian, disguised himself in the habit of a Roman soldier, went to the house, informed Theodora who he was, and advised her to make her escape in his clothes.

        This being effected, and a man found in the brothel instead of a beautiful lady, Didymus was taken before the president, to whom confessing the truth, and owning that he was a Christian the sentence of death was immediately pronounced against him.

        Theodora, hearing that her deliverer was likely to suffer, came to the judge, threw herself at his feet, and begged that the sentence might fall on her as the guilty person; but, deaf to the cries of the innocent, and insensible to the calls of justice, the inflexible judge condemned both; when they were executed accordingly, being first beheaded, and their bodies afterward burnt.

        Secundianus, having been accused as a Christian, was conveyed to prison by some soldiers. On the way, Verianus and Marcellinus said, "Where are you carrying the innocent?" This interrogatory occasioned them to be seized, and all three, after having been tortured, were hanged and decapitated.

        Origen, the celebrated presbyter and catechist of Alexandria, at the age of sixty-four, was seized, thrown into a loathsome prison, laden with fetters, his feet placed in the stocks, and his legs extended to the utmost for several successive days.

        He was threatened with fire, and tormented by every lingering means the most infernal imaginations could suggest. During this cruel temporizing, the emperor Decius died, and Gallus, who succeeded him, engaging in a war with the Goths, the Christians met with a respite. In this interim, Origen obtained his enlargement, and, retiring to Tyre, he there remained until his death, which happened when he was in the sixty-ninth year of his age.

        Gallus, the emperor, having concluded his wars, a plague broke out in the empire: sacrifices to the pagan deities were ordered by the emperor, and persecutions spread from the interior to the extreme parts of the empire, and many fell martyrs to the impetuosity of the rabble, as well as the prejudice of the magistrates. Among these were Cornelius, the Christian bishop of Rome, and Lucius, his successor, in 253.

        Most of the errors which crept into the Church at this time arose from placing human reason in competition with revelation; but the fallacy of such arguments being proved by the most able divines, the opinions they had created vanished away like the stars before the sun.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, #8

      The Eighth Persecution, Under Valerian, A.D. 257;

        Began under Valerian, in the month of April, 257, and continued for three years and six months. The martyrs that fell in this persecution were innumerable, and their tortures and deaths as various and painful. The most eminent martyrs were the following, though neither rank, sex, nor age were regarded.

        Rufina and Secunda were two beautiful and accomplished ladies, daughters of Asterius, a gentleman of eminence in Rome. Rufina, the elder, was designed in marriage for Armentarius, a young nobleman; Secunda, the younger, for Verinus, a person of rank and opulence.

        The suitors, at the time of the persecution's commencing, were both Christians; but when danger appeared, to save their fortunes, they renounced their faith.

        They took great pains to persuade the ladies to do the same, but, disappointed in their purpose, the lovers were base enough to inform against the ladies, who, being apprehended as Christians, were brought before Junius Donatus, governor of Rome, where, A.D. 257, they sealed their martyrdom with their blood.

        Stephen, bishop of Rome, was beheaded in the same year, and about that time Saturninus, the pious orthodox bishop of Toulouse, refusing to sacrifice to idols, was treated with all the barbarous indignities imaginable, and fastened by the feet to the tail of a bull.

        Upon a signal given, the enraged animal was driven down the steps of the temple, by which the worthy martyr's brains were dashed out.

        Sextus succeeded Stephen as bishop of Rome. He is supposed to have been a Greek by birth or by extraction, and had for some time served in the capacity of a deacon under Stephen.

        His great fidelity, singular wisdom, and uncommon courage distinguished him upon many occasions; and the happy conclusion of a controversy with some heretics is generally ascribed to his piety and prudence.

        In the year 258, Marcianus, who had the management of the Roman government, procured an order from the emperor Valerian, to put to death all the Christian clergy in Rome, and hence the bishop with six of his deacons, suffered martyrdom in 258.

        Let us draw near to the fire of martyred Lawrence, that our cold hearts may be warmed thereby. The merciless tyrant, understanding him to be not only a minister of the sacraments, but a distributor also of the Church riches, promised to himself a double prey, by the apprehension of one soul.

        First, with the rake of avarice to scrape to himself the treasure of poor Christians; then with the fiery fork of tyranny, so to toss and turmoil them, that they should wax weary of their profession.

        With furious face and cruel countenance, the greedy wolf demanded where this Lawrence had bestowed the substance of the Church: who, craving three days' respite, promised to declare where the treasure might be had.

        In the meantime, he caused a good number of poor Christians to be congregated. So, when the day of his answer was come, the persecutor strictly charged him to stand to his promise.

        Then valiant Lawrence, stretching out his arms over the poor, said: "These are the precious treasure of the Church; these are the treasure indeed, in whom the faith of Christ reigneth, in whom Jesus Christ hath His mansion-place. What more precious jewels can Christ have, than those in whom He hath promised to dwell?

        For so it is written, 'I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in.' And again, 'Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.'

        What greater riches can Christ our Master possess, than the poor people in whom He loveth to be seen?"

        O, what tongue is able to express the fury and madness of the tyrant's heart! Now he stamped, he stared, he ramped, he fared as one out of his wits: his eyes like fire glowed, his mouth like a boar formed, his teeth like a hellhound grinned. Now, not a reasonable man, but a roaring lion, he might be called.

        "Kindle the fire (he cried)--of wood make no spare. Hath this villain deluded the emperor? Away with him, away with him: whip him with scourges, jerk him with rods, buffet him with fists, brain him with clubs.

        Jesteth the traitor with the emperor? Pinch him with fiery tongs, gird him with burning plates, bring out the strongest chains, and the fire-forks, and the grated bed of iron: on the fire with it; bind the rebel hand and foot;

        and when the bed is fire-hot, on with him: roast him, broil him, toss him, turn him: on pain of our high displeasure do every man his office, O ye tormentors."

        The word was no sooner spoken, but all was done. After many cruel handlings, this meek lamb was laid, I will not say on his fiery bed of iron, but on his soft bed of down. So mightily God wrought with his martyr Lawrence, so miraculously God tempered His element the fire; that it became not a bed of consuming pain, but a pallet of nourishing rest.

        In Africa the persecution raged with peculiar violence; many thousands received the crown of martyrdom, among whom the following were the most distinguished characters:

        Cyprian, bishop of Carthage, an eminent prelate, and a pious ornament of the Church. The brightness of his genius was tempered by the solidity of his judgment; and with all the accomplishments of the gentleman, he blended the virtues of a Christian.

        His doctrines were orthodox and pure; his language easy and elegant; and his manners graceful and winning: in fine, he was both the pious and polite preacher.

        In his youth he was educated in the principles of Gentilism, and having a considerable fortune, he lived in the very extravagance of splendor, and all the dignity of pomp.

        About the year 246, Coecilius, a Christian minister of Carthage, became the happy instrument of Cyprian's conversion: on which account, and for the great love that he always afterward bore for the author of his conversion, he was termed Coecilius Cyprian.

        Previous to his baptism, he studied the Scriptures with care and being struck with the beauties of the truths they contained, he determined to practise the virtues therein recommended.

        Subsequent to his baptism, he sold his estate, distributed the money among the poor, dressed himself in plain attire, and commenced a life of austerity. He was soon after made a presbyter; and, being greatly admired for his virtues and works, on the death of Donatus, in A.D. 248, he was almost unanimously elected bishop of Carthage.

        Cyprian's care not only extended over Carthage, but to Numidia and Mauritania. In all his transactions he took great care to ask the advice of his clergy, knowing that unanimity alone could be of service to the Church, this being one of his maxims, "That the bishop was in the church, and the church in the bishop; so that unity can only be preserved by a close connexion between the pastor and his flock."

        In A.D. 250, Cyprian was publicly proscribed by the emperor Decius, under the appellation of Coecilius Cyprian, bishop of the Christians; and the universal cry of the pagans was, "Cyprian to the lions, Cyprian to the beasts." The bishop, however, withdrew from the rage of the populace, and his effects were immediately confiscated.

        During his retirement, he wrote thirty pious and elegant letters to his flock; but several schisms that then crept into the Church, gave him great uneasiness. The rigor of the persecution abating, he returned to Carthage, and did everything in his power to expunge erroneous opinions.

        A terrible plague breaking out in Carthage, it was as usual, laid to the charge of the Christians; and the magistrates began to persecute accordingly, which occasioned an epistle from them to Cyprian, in answer to which he vindicates the cause of Christianity.

        A.D. 257, Cyprian was brought before the proconsul Aspasius Paturnus, who exiled him to a little city on the Lybian sea. On the death of this proconsul, he returned to Carthage, but was soon after seized, and carried before the new governor, who condemned him to be beheaded; which sentence was executed on the fourteenth of September, A.D. 258.

        The disciples of Cyprian, martyred in this persecution, were Lucius, Flavian, Victoricus, Remus, Montanus, Julian, Primelus, and Donatian.

        At Utica, a most terrible tragedy was exhibited: three hundred Christians were, by the orders of the proconsul, placed round a burning limekiln. A pan of coals and incense being prepared, they were commanded either to sacrifice to Jupiter, or to be thrown into the kiln. Unanimously refusing, they bravely jumped into the pit, and were immediately suffocated.

        Fructuosus, bishop of Tarragon, in Spain, and his two deacons, Augurius and Eulogius, were burnt for being Christians.

        Alexander, Malchus, and Priscus, three Christians of Palestine, with a woman of the same place, voluntarily accused themselves of being Christians; on which account they were sentenced to be devoured by tigers, which sentence was executed accordingly.

        Maxima, Donatilla, and Secunda, three virgins of Tuburga, had gall and vinegar given them to drink, were then severely scourged, tormented on a gibbet, rubbed with lime, scorched on a gridiron, worried by wild beasts, and at length beheaded.

        It is here proper to take notice of the singular but miserable fate of the emperor Valerian, who had so long and so terribly persecuted the Christians.

        This tyrant, by a stretagem, was taken prisoner by Sapor, emperor of Persia, who carried him into his own country, and there treated him with the most unexampled indignity, making him kneel down as the meanest slave, and treading upon him as a footstool when he mounted his horse.

        After having kept him for the space of seven years in this abject state of slavery, he caused his eyes to be put out, though he was then eighty-three years of age.

        This not satiating his desire of revenge, he soon after ordered his body to be flayed alive, and rubbed with salt, under which torments he expired; and thus fell one of the most tyrannical emperors of Rome, and one of the greatest persecutors of the Christians.

        A.D. 260, Gallienus, the son of Valerian, succeeded him, and during his reign (a few martyrs excepted) the Church enjoyed peace for some years.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, #9;

      The Ninth Persecution Under Maximian, A.D. 284;

        The principal sufferers were: Felix, bishop of Rome. This prelate was advanced to the Roman see in 274. He was the first martyr to Aurelian's petulancy, being beheaded on the twenty-second of December, in the same year.

        Agapetus, a young gentleman, who sold his estate, and gave the money to the poor, was seized as a Christian, tortured, and then beheaded at Praeneste, a city within a day's journey of Rome.

        These are the only martyrs left upon record during this reign, as it was soon put to a stop by the emperor's being murdered by his own domestics, at Byzantium.

        Aurelian was succeeded by Tacitus, who was followed by Probus, as the latter was by Carus: this emperor being killed by a thunder storm, his sons, Carnious and Numerian, succeeded him, and during all these reigns the Church had peace.

        Diocletian mounted the imperial throne, A.D. 284; at first he showed great favor to the Christians. In the year 286, he associated Maximian with him in the empire; and some Christians were put to death before any general persecution broke out. Among these were Felician and Primus, two brothers.

        Marcus and Marcellianus were twins, natives of Rome, and of noble descent. Their parents were heathens, but the tutors, to whom the education of the children was intrusted, brought them up as Christians.

        Their constancy at length subdued those who wished them to become pagans, and their parents and whole family became converts to a faith they had before reprobated.

        They were martyred by being tied to posts, and having their feet pierced with nails. After remaining in this situation for a day and a night, their sufferings were put an end to by thrusting lances through their bodies.

        Zoe, the wife of the jailer, who had the care of the before-mentioned martyrs, was also converted by them, and hung upon a tree, with a fire of straw lighted under her. When her body was taken down, it was thrown into a river, with a large stone tied to it, in order to sink it.

        In the year of Christ 286, a most remarkable affair occurred; a legion of soldiers, consisting of six thousand six hundred and sixty-six men, contained none but Christians.

        This legion was called the Theban Legion, because the men had been raised in Thebias: they were quartered in the east until the emperor Maximian ordered them to march to Gaul, to assist him against the rebels of Burgundy. They passed the Alps into Gaul, under the command of Mauritius, Candidus, and Exupernis, their worthy commanders, and at length joined the emperor.

        Maximian, about this time, ordered a general sacrifice, at which the whole army was to assist; and likewise he commanded that they should take the oath of allegiance and swear, at the same time, to assist in the extirpation of Christianity in Gaul.

        Alarmed at these orders, each individual of the Theban Legion absolutely refused either to sacrifice or take the oaths prescribed. This so greatly enraged Maximian, that he ordered the legion to be decimated, that is, every tenth man to be selected from the rest, and put to the sword.

        This bloody order having been put in execution, those who remained alive were still inflexible, when a second decimation took place, and every tenth man of those living was put to death.

        This second severity made no more impression than the first had done; the soldiers preserved their fortitude and their principles, but by the advice of their officers they drew up a loyal remonstrance to the emperor.

        This, it might have been presumed, would have softened the emperor, but it had a contrary effect: for, enraged at their perseverance and unanimity, he commanded that the whole legion should be put to death, which was accordingly executed by the other troops, who cut them to pieces with their swords, September 22, 286.

        Alban, from whom St. Alban's, in Hertfordshire, received its name, was the first British martyr. Great Britain had received the Gospel of Christ from Lucius, the first Christian king, but did not suffer from the rage of persecution for many years after. He was originally a pagan, but converted by a Christian ecclesiastic, named Amphibalus, whom he sheltered on account of his religion.

        The enemies of Amphibalus, having intelligence of the place where he was secreted, came to the house of Alban; in order to facilitate his escape, when the soldiers came, he offered himself up as the person they were seeking for. The deceit being detected, the governor ordered him to be scourged, and then he was sentenced to be beheaded, June 22, A.D. 287.

        The venerable Bede assures us, that, upon this occasion, the executioner suddenly became a convert to Christianity, and entreated permission to die for Alban, or with him. Obtaining the latter request, they were beheaded by a soldier, who voluntarily undertook the task of executioner.

        This happened on the twenty-second of June, A.D. 287, at Verulam, now St. Alban's, in Hertfordshire, where a magnificent church was erected to his memory about the time of Constantine the Great.

        The edifice, being destroyed in the Saxon wars, was rebuilt by Offa, king of Mercia, and a monastery erected adjoining to it, some remains of which are still visible, and the church is a noble Gothic structure.

        Faith, a Christian female, of Acquitain, in France, was ordered to be broiled upon a gridiron, and then beheaded; A.D. 287.

        Quintin was a Christian, and a native of Rome, but determined to attempt the propagation of the Gospel in Gaul, with one Lucian, they preached together in Amiens; after which Lucian went to Beaumaris, where he was martyred.

        Quintin remained in Picardy, and was very zealous in his ministry. Being seized upon as a Christian, he was stretched with pullies until his joints were dislocated; his body was then torn with wire scourges, and boiling oil and pitch poured on his naked flesh; lighted torches were applied to his sides and armpits; and after he had been thus tortured, he was remanded back to prison, and died of the barbarities he had suffered,

        October 31, A.D. 287.

        His body was sunk in the Somme.

      The Ten Primitive Persecutions: Rev 2:10, #10

      The Tenth Persecution, Under Diocletian, A.D. 303;

        Under the Roman emperors, commonly called the Era of the Martyrs, was occasioned partly by the increasing number and luxury of the Christians, and the hatred of Galerius, the adopted son of Diocletian, who, being stimulated by his mother, a bigoted pagan, never ceased persuading the emperor to enter upon the persecution, until he had accomplished his purpose.

        The fatal day fixed upon to commence the bloody work, was the twenty-third of February, A.D. 303, that being the day in which the Terminalia were celebrated, and on which, as the cruel pagans boasted, they hoped to put a termination to Christianity.

        On the appointed day, the persecution began in Nicomedia, on the morning of which the prefect of that city repaired, with a great number of officers and assistants, to the church of the Christians, where, having forced open the doors, they seized upon all the sacred books, and committed them to the flames.

        The whole of this transaction was in the presence of Diocletian and Galerius, who, not contented with burning the books, had the church levelled with the ground. This was followed by a severe edict, commanding the destruction of all other Christian churches and books; and an order soon succeeded, to render Christians of all denomination outlaws.

        The publication of this edict occasioned an immediate martyrdom, for a bold Christian not only tore it down from the place to which it was affixed, but execrated the name of the emperor for his injustice. A provocation like this was sufficient to call down pagan vengeance upon his head; he was accordingly seized, severely tortured, and then burned alive.

        All the Christians were apprehended and imprisoned; and Galerius privately ordered the imperial palace to be set on fire, that the Christians might be charged as the incendiaries, and a plausible pretence given for carrying on the persecution with the greater severities.

        A general sacrifice was commenced, which occasioned various martyrdoms. No distinction was made of age or sex; the name of Christian was so obnoxious to the pagans that all indiscriminately fell sacrifices to their opinions.

        Many houses were set on fire, and whole Christian families perished in the flames; and others had stones fastened about their necks, and being tied together were driven into the sea.

        The persecution became general in all the Roman provinces, but more particularly in the east; and as it lasted ten years, it is impossible to ascertain the numbers martyred, or to enumerate the various modes of martyrdom.

        Racks, scourges, swords, daggers, crosses, poison, and famine, were made use of in various parts to dispatch the Christians; and invention was exhausted to devise tortures against such as had no crime, but thinking differently from the votaries of superstition.

        A city of Phrygia, consisting entirely of Christians, was burnt, and all the inhabitants perished in the flames.

        Tired with slaughter, at length, several governors of provinces represented to the imperial court, the impropriety of such conduct.

        Hence many were respited from execution, but, though they were not put to death, as much as possible was done to render their lives miserable, many of them having:

          >> their ears cut off,

          >> their noses slit,

          >> their right eyes put out,

          >> their limbs rendered useless by dreadful dislocations,

          >> and their flesh seared in conspicuous places with red-hot irons.

        It is necessary now to particularize the most conspicious persons who laid down their lives in martyrdom in this bloody persecution.

        Sebastian, a celebrated martyr, was born at Narbonne, in Gaul, instructed in the principles of Christianity at Milan, and afterward became an officer of the emperor's guard at Rome. He remained a true Christian in the midst of idolatry; unallured by the splendors of a court, untained by evil examples, and uncontaminated by the hopes of preferment.

        Refusing to be a pagan, the emperor ordered him to be taken to a field near the city, termed the Campus Martius, and there to be shot to death with arrows; which sentence was executed accordingly.

        Some pious Christians coming to the place of execution, in order to give his body burial, perceived signs of life in him, and immediately moving him to a place of security, they, in a short time effected his recovery, and prepared him for a second martyrdom;

        for, as soon as he was able to go out, he placed himself intentionally in the emperor's way as he was going to the temple, and reprehended him for his various cruelties and unreasonable prejudices against Christianity.

        As soon as Diocletian had overcome his surprise, he ordered Sebastian to be seized, and carried to a place near the palace, and beaten to death; and, that the Christians should not either use means again to recover or bury his body, he ordered that it should be thrown into the common sewer.

        Nevertheless, a Christian lady named Lucina, found means to remove it from the sewer, and bury it in the catacombs, or repositories of the dead.

        The Christians, about this time, upon mature consideration, thought it unlawful to bear arms under a heathen emperor. Maximilian, the son of Fabius Victor, was the first beheaded under this regulation.

        Vitus, a Sicilian of considerable family, was brought up a Christian; when his virtues increased with his years, his constancy supported him under all afflictions, and his faith was superior to the most dangerous perils.

        His father, Hylas, who was a pagan, finding that he had been instructed in the principles of Christianity by the nurse who brought him up, used all his endeavors to bring him back to paganism, and at length sacrificed his son to the idols, June 14, A.D. 303.

        Victor was a Christian of a good family at Marseilles, in France; he spent a great part of the night in visiting the afflicted, and confirming the weak; which pious work he could not, consistently with his own safety, perform in the daytime; and his fortune he spent in relieving the distresses of poor Christians.

        He was at length, however, seized by the emperor Maximian's decree, who ordered him to be bound, and dragged through the streets. During the execution of this order, he was treated with all manner of cruelties and indignities by the enraged populace. Remaining still inflexible, his courage was deemed obstinacy.

        Being by order stretched upon the rack, he turned his eyes toward heaven, and prayed to God to endue him with patience, after which he underwent the tortures with most admirable fortitude. After the executioners were tired with inflicting torments on him, he was conveyed to a dungeon.

        In his confinement, he converted his jailers, named Alexander, Felician, and Longinus. This affair coming to the ears of the emperor, he ordered them immediately to be put to death, and the jailers were accordingly beheaded.

        was then again put to the rack, unmercifully beaten with batoons, and again sent to prison.

        Being a third time examined concerning his religion, he persevered in his principles; a small altar was then brought, and he was commanded to offer incense upon it immediately. Fired with indignation at the request, he boldly stepped forward, and with his foot overthrew both altar and idol.

        This so enraged the emperor Maximian, who was present, that he ordered the foot with which he had kicked the altar to be immediately cut off; and Victor was thrown into a mill, and crushed to pieces with the stones, A.D. 303.

        Maximus, governor of Cilicia, being at Tarsus, three Christians were brought before him; their names were Tarachus, an aged man, Probus, and Andronicus. After repeated tortures and exhortations to recant, they, at length, were ordered for execution.

        Being brought to the amphitheater, several beasts were let loose upon them; but none of the animals, though hungry, would touch them.

        The keeper then brought out a large bear, that had that very day destroyed three men; but this voracious creature and a fierce lioness both refused to touch the prisoners. Finding the design of destroying them by the means of wild beasts ineffectual, Maximus ordered them to be slain by the sword, on October 11, A.D. 303.

        Romanus, a native of Palestine, was deacon of the church of Caesarea at the time of the commencement of Diocletian's persecution. B

        eing condemned for his faith at Antioch, he was scourged, put to the rack, his body torn with hooks, his flesh cut with knives, his face scarified, his teeth beaten from their sockets, and his hair plucked up by the roots. Soon after he was ordered to be strangled, November 17, A.D. 303.

        Susanna, the niece of Caius, bishop of Rome, was pressed by the emperor Diocletian to marry a noble pagan, who was nearly related to him. Refusing the honor intended her, she was beheaded by the emperor's order.

        Dorotheus, the high chamberlain of the household to Diocletian, was a Christian, and took great pains to make converts. In his religious labors, he was joined by Gorgonius, another Christian, and one belonging to the palace. They were first tortured and then strangled.

        Peter, a eunuch belonging to the emperor, was a Christian of singular modesty and humility. He was laid on a gridiron, and broiled over a slow fire until he expired.

        Cyprian, known by the title of the magician, to distinguish him from Cyprian, bishop of Carthage, was a native of Natioch. He received a liberal education in his youth, and particularly applied himself to astrology; after which he traveled for improvement through Greece, Egypt, India, etc.

        In the course of time he became acquainted with Justina, a young lady of Antioch, whose birth, beauty, and accomplishments, rendered her the admiration of all who knew her.

        A pagan gentleman applied to Cyprian, to promote his suit with the beautiful Justina; this he undertook, but soon himself became converted, burnt his books of astrology and magic, received baptism, and felt animated with a powerful spirit of grace.

        The conversion of Cyprian had a great effect on the pagan gentleman who paid his addresses to Justina, and he in a short time embraced Christianity.

        During the persecutions of Diocletian, Cyprian and Justina were seized upon as Christians, the former was torn with pincers, and the latter chastised; and, after suffering other torments, both were beheaded.

        Eulalia, a Spanish lady of a Christian family, was remarkable in her youth for sweetness of temper, and solidity of understanding seldom found in the capriciousness of juvenile years.

        Being apprehended as a Christian, the magistrate attempted by the mildest means, to bring her over to paganism, but she ridiculed the pagan deities with such asperity, that the judge, incensed at her behavior, ordered her to be tortured.

        Her sides were accordingly torn by hooks, and her breasts burnt in the most shocking manner, until she expired by the violence of the flames, December, A.D. 303.

        In the year 304, when the persecution reached Spain, Dacian, the governor of Terragona, ordered Valerius the bishop, and Vincent the deacon, to be seized, loaded with irons, and imprisoned.

        The prisoners being firm in their resolution, Valerius was banished, and Vincent was racked, his limbs dislocated, his flesh torn with hooks, and he was laid on a gridiron, which had not only a fire placed under it, but spikes at the top, which ran into his flesh.

        These torments neither destroying him, nor changing his resolutions, he was remanded to prison, and confined ina small, loathsome, dark dungeon, strewed with sharp flints, and pieces of broken glass, where he died, January 22, 304. His body was thrown into the river.

        The persecution of Diocletian began particularly to rage in A.D. 304, when many Christians were put to cruel tortures and the most painful and ignominious deaths; the most eminent and paritcular of whom we shall enumerate.

        Saturninus, a priest of Albitina, a town of Africa, after being tortured, was remanded to prison, and there starved to death. His four children, after being variously tormented, shared the same fate with their father.

        Dativas, a noble Roman senator; Thelico, a pious Christian;

        Victoria, a young lady of considerable family and fortune, with some others of less consideration, all auditors of Saturninus, were tortured in a similar manner, and perished by the same means.

        Agrape, Chionia, and Irene, three sisters, were seized upon at Thessalonica, when Diocletian's persecution reached Greece. They were burnt, and received the crown of martyrdom in the flames, March 25, A.D. 304.

        The governor, finding that he could make no impression on Irene, ordered her to be exposed naked in the streets, which shameful order having been executed, a fire was kindled near the city wall, amidst whose flames her spirit ascended beyond the reach of man's cruelty.

        Agatho, a man of a pious turn of mind, with Cassice, Philippa, and Eutychia, were martyred about the same time; but the particulars have not been transmitted to us.

        Marcellinus, bishop of Rome, who succeeded Caius in that see, having strongly opposed paying divine honors to Diocletian, suffered martyrdom, by a variety of tortures, in the year 324, conforting his soul until he expired with the prospect of these glorious rewards it would receive by the tortures suffered in the body.

        Victorius, Carpophorus, Severus, and Severianus, were brothers, and all four employed in places of great trust and honor in the city of Rome.

        Having exclaimed against the worship of idols, they were apprehended, and scourged, with the plumbetae, or scourges, to the ends of which were fastened leaden balls. This punishment was exercised with such excess of cruelty that the pious brothers fell martyrs to its severity.

        Timothy, a deacon of Mauritania, and Maura his wife, had not been united together by the bands of wedlock above three weeks, when they were separated from each other by the persecution.

        Timothy, being apprehended, as a Christian, was carried before Arrianus, the governor of Thebais, who, knowing that he had the keeping of the Holy Scriptures, commanded him to deliver them up to be burnt; to which he answered, "Had I children, I would sooner deliver them up to be sacrificed, than part with the Word of God."

        The governor being much incensed at this reply, ordered his eyes to be put out, with red-hot irons, saying, "The books shall at least be useless to you, for you shall not see to read them."

        His patience under the operation was so great that the governor grew more exasperated; he, therefore, in order, if possible, to overcome his fortitude, ordered him to be hung up by the feet, with a weight tied about his neck, and a gag in his mouth.

        In this state, Maura his wife, tenderly urged him for her sake to recant; but, when the gag was taken out of his mouth, instead of consenting to his wife's entreaties, he greatly blamed her mistaken love, and declared his resolution of dying for the faith.

        The consequence was, that Maura resolved to imitate his courage and fidelity and either to accompany or follow him to glory.

        The governor, after trying in vain to alter her resolution, ordered her to be tortured, which was executed with great severity. After this, Timothy and Maura were crucified near each other, A.D. 304.

        Sabinus, bishop of Assisium, refusing to sacrifice to Jupiter, and pushing the idol from him, had his hand cut off by the order of the governor of Tuscany. While in prison, he converted the governor and his family, all of whom suffered martyrdom for the faith. Soon after their execution, Sabinus himself was scourged to death, December, A.D. 304.

        Tired with the farce of state and public business, the emperor Diocletian resigned the imperial diadem, and was succeeded by Constantius and Galerius; the former a prince of the most mild and humane disposition and the latter equally remarkable for his cruelty and tyranny.

        These divided the empire into two equal governments, Galerius ruling in the east, and Constantius in the west; and the people in the two governments felt the effects of the dispositions of the two emperors; for those in the west were governed in the mildest manner, but such as resided in the east felt all the miseries of oppression and lengthened tortures.

        Among the many martyred by the order of Galerius, we shall enumerate the most eminent.

        Amphianus was a gentleman of eminence in Lucia, and a scholar of Eusebius; Julitta, a Lycaonian of royal descent, but more celebrated for her virtues than noble blood. While on the rack, her child was killed before her face.

        Julitta, of Cappadocia, was a lady of distinguished capacity, great virtue, and uncommon courage. To complete the execution, Julitta had boiling pitch poured on her feet, her sides torn with hooks, and received the conclusion of her martyrdom, by being beheaded, April 16, A.D. 305.

        Hermolaus, a venerable and pious Christian, or a great age, and an intimate acquaintance of Panteleon's, suffered martyrdom for the faith on the same day, and in the same manner as Panteleon.

        Eustratius, secretary to the governor of Armina, was thrown into a fiery furnace for exhorting some Christians who had been apprehended, to persevere in their faith.

        Nicander and Marcian, two eminent Roman military officers, were apprehended on account of their faith. As they were both men of great abilities in their profession, the utmost means were used to induce them to renounce Christianity; but these endeavors being found ineffectual, they were beheaded.

        In the kingdom of Naples, several martyrdoms took place, in particular, Januaries, bishop of Beneventum; Sosius, deacon of Misene; Proculus, another deacon; Eutyches and Acutius, two laymen; Festus, a deacon; and Desiderius, a reader;

        all, on account of being Christians, were condemned by the governor of Campania to be devoured by the wild beasts. The savage animals, however, would not touch them, and so they were beheaded.

        Quirinus, bishop of Siscia, being carried before Matenius, the governor, was ordered to sacrifice to the pagan deities, agreeably to the edicts of various Roman emperors.

        The governor, perceiving his constancy, sent him to jail, and ordered him to be heavily ironed; flattering himself, that the hardships of a jail, some occasional tortures and the weight of chains, might overcome his resolution.

        Being decided in his principles, he was sent to Amantius, the principal governor of Pannonia, now Hungary, who loaded him with chains, and carried him through the principal towns of the Danube, exposing him to ridicule wherever he went.

        Arriving at length at Sabaria, and finding that Quirinus would not renounce his faith, he ordered him to be cast into a river, with a stone fastened about his neck.

        This sentence being put into execution, Quirinus floated about for some time, and, exhorting the people in the most pious terms, concluded his admonitions with this prayer:

        "It is no new thing, O all-powerful Jesus, for Thee to stop the course of rivers, or to cause a man to walk upon the water, as Thou didst Thy servant Peter; the people have already seen the proof of Thy power in me; grant me now to lay down my life for Thy sake, O my God."

        On pronouncing the last words he immediately sank, and died, June 4, A.D. 308. His body was afterwards taken up, and buried by some pious Christians.

        Pamphilus, a native of Phoenicia, of a considerable family, was a man of such extensive learning that he was called a second Origen.

        He was received into the body of the clergy at Caesarea, where he established a public library and spent his time in the practice of every Christian virtue.

        He copied the greatest part of the works of Origen with his own hand, and, assisted by Eusebius, gave a correct copy of the Old Testament, which had suffered greatly by the ignorance or negligence of former transcribers. In the year 307, he was apprehended, and suffered torture and martyrdom.

        Marcellus, bishop of Rome, being banished on account of his faith, fell a martyr to the miseries he suffered in exile, January 16, A.D. 310.

        Peter, the sixteenth bishop of Alexandria, was martyred November 25, A.D. 311, by order of Maximus Caesar, who reigned in the east.

        Agnes, a virgin of only thirteen years of age, was beheaded for being a Christian; as was Serene, the empress of Diocletian. Valentine, a priest, suffered the same fate at Rome; and Erasmus, a bishop, was martyred in Campania.

        Soon after this the persecution abated in the middle parts of the empire, as well as in the west; and Providence at length began to manifest vengeance on the persecutors.

        Maximian endeavored to corrupt his daughter Fausta to murder Constantine her husband; which she discovered, and Constantine forced him to choose his own death, when he preferred the ignominious death of hanging after being an emperor near twenty years.

        Constantine was the good and virtuous child of a good and virtuous father, born in Britain. His mother was named Helena, daughter of King Coilus.

        He was a most bountiful and gracious prince, having a desire to nourish learning and good arts, and did oftentimes use to read, write, and study himself.

        He had marvellous good success and prosperous achieving of all things he took in hand, which then was (and truly) supposed to proceed of this, for that he was so great a favorer of the Christian faith. Which faith when he had once embraced, he did ever after most devoutly and religiously reverence.

        Thus Constantine, sufficiently appointed with strength of men but especially with strength of God, entered his journey coming towards Italy, which was about the last year of the persecution, A.D. 313.

        Maxentius, understanding of the coming of Constantine, and trusting more to his devilish art of magic than to the good will of his subjects, which he little deserved, durst not show himself out of the city, nor encounter him in the open field, but with privy garrisons laid wait for him by the way in sundry straits, as he should come; with whom Constantine had divers skirmishes, and by the power of the Lord did ever vanquish them and put them to flight.

        Notwithstanding, Constantine yet was in no great comfort, but in great care and dread in his mind (approaching now near unto Rome) for the magical charms and sorceries of Maxentius, wherewith he had vanquished before Severus, sent by Galerius against him.

        Wherefore, being in great doubt and perplexity in himself, and revolving many things in his mind, what help he might have against the operations of his charming, Constantine, in his journey drawing toward the city, and casting up his eyes many times to heaven, in the south part,

        about the going down of the sun, saw a great brightness in heaven, appearing in the similitude of a cross, giving this inscription, In hoc vince, that is, "In this overcome."

        Eusebius Pamphilus doth witness that he had heard the said Constantine himself oftentimes report, and also to swear this to be true and certain, which he did see with his own eyes in heaven, and also his soldiers about him.

        At the sight whereof when he was greatly astonished, and consulting with his men upon the meaning thereof, behold, in the night season in his sleep, Christ appeared to him with the sign of the same cross which he had seen before, bidding him to make the figuration thereof, and to carry it in his wars before him, and so should we have the victory.

        Constantine so established the peace of the Church that for the space of a thousand years we read of no set persecution against the Christians, unto the time of John Wickliffe.

        So happy, so glorious was this victory of Constantine, surnamed the Great! For the joy and gladness whereof, the citizens who had sent for him before, with exceeding triumph brought him into the city of Rome, where he was most honorably received,

        and celebrated the space of seven days together; having, moreover, in the market place, his image set up, holding in his right hand the sign of the cross, with this inscription:

        "With this wholesome sign, the true token of fortitude, I have rescued and delivered our city from the yoke of the tyrant."

        We shall conclude our account of the tenth and last general persecution with the death of St. George, the titular saint and patron of England. St. George was born in Cappadocia, of Christian parents;

        and giving proofs of his courage, was promoted in the army of the emperor Diocletian. During the persecution, St. George threw up his command, went boldly to the senate house, and avowed his being a Christian, taking occasion at the same time to remonstrate against paganism, and point out the absurdity of worshipping idols.

        This freedom so greatly provoked the senate that St. George was ordered to be tortured, and by the emperor's orders was dragged through the streets, and beheaded the next day.

        The legend of the dragon, which is associated with this martyr, is usually illustrated by representing St. George seated upon a charging horse and transfixing the monster with his spear. This fiery dragon symbolizes the devil, who was vanquished by St. George's steadfast faith in Christ, which remained unshaken in spite of torture and death.

      Could you share your State of Salvation that we may better serve our readers?


      At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour!

      I do believe Jesus is the Saviour and I know I have eternal Life!

      I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life.

      DOCTRINAL DISCLAIMER:

      Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Conservative Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provides web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA, ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, TALK-RADIO-REPUBLICANS, ETC., – seeking to be an outlet for many CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE VOICES who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST ABOVE ALL!

      Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

      We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

      In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:

      Be Blessed!
