The unchristian church — 2 Comments

  1. When Paul was writing he was addressing a community that was of a level, and a type. When the church entered the imperial palace it became focused upon control.
    When the crusades were preached the structure became profoundly militarised. And I would contend the Curia dusted off the structures of the the successful empire and removed wholesale the citizenship/making heretics allowing slaughter. In England the Harrowing of the North was nothing short of ethnic clensing. A large armed group enters a village, kills the men, takes the stores. By Christmas you have an empty village.

  2. The so-called “peace of the church” in 313 was a license for power and oppression to become norms.
