The Roman Catholic Inquisition

E. B. said:
In my bible it says that we are to preach the gospel. It doesn't say that we are to preach our opinions about different churches and the people that go to those churches.

G. C. said:
The Word Cult is'nt in the Bible because Christians back then were in Unity (catholic) Then we ended up with a bunch of Crack pots and all founded in America !

E. B. said:
If they were all in unity as catholics there wouldn't have been any persecutions or deaths resulting from what Rome called heretics of their faith.

The Bible says:
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

The History says:
The Roman Catholic Inquisition was one of the greatest disasters ever to befall mankind. In the name of Jesus Christ, Catholic priests mounted an enormous effort to kill all "heretics" in Europe and Britain. Heretics is defined whichever way Rome wanted it defined.

Since history books have been largely rewritten, few people know specific details of this murderous campaign that lasted over 1,200 years, killing 75 million people. 

There was a period in history when the Christian church did not permit the laity to have access to the Bible. Only the clergy had this privilege. Translation of the Bible into modern languages was expressly forbidden by the Catholic Church. During the early thirteenth century, copies of the Bible in the German language were burned by the order of Pop Innocent III. Several owners of the foreign Bible were imprisoned, whipped and sent to the galleys by the Roman Catholic Inquisition.

In 1452, the first printed Latin Bible, known as the Gutenberg Bible, was printed in Germany. An English Protestant reformer, William Tyndale, made a translation of the New Testament and parts of the Old Testament into English of exceptional literary quality, but he was betrayed and arrested near Brussels in 1535. He was burned as a heretic in October 1536. His last words were reported as, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.”

The Bible says:
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

I say:
“Lord, open the Catholic people’s eyes."
