What would be the wealthiest city in this day and age Im wondering. The one thats the most influential and the one where its ok to sin and blaspheme God.
The rise of an anti-Christ state religion of worldly power in which the original spiritual truth and life of the gospel is replaced with
church worship and a hierarchy of priests and bishops.
The ending of the gospel of Mark is cut and defaced as the new religion of Rome and the empire does not hold up against these
specific signs of true worship.
Heretics are persecuted. The Bible is translated into Latin and remains inaccessible to the common people.
The church becomes wealthy and invests in property and idols to the saints and martyrs of old.
In the end by about 500AD the Pope - Pontus Maximus - is now the Bishop of Rome and "emperor" of Christendom.
By 606AD Boniface III declares himself not only to be the Bishop of Rome but also the supreme Bishop of the entire church
and that all other Bishops throughout Christendom are now subject to his authority alone.
And the rest is history as they say.
