Some Early Christian claims.
These claims may be new to some of you and were made in the early years of Christianity.

(1) Had Marcion (early Church father) had his way Christianity would have been much different from what it is today, Marcion held that the Jewish god Jehovah was a bumbling amateur and that Jesus had been sent by the true Universal God. He would have eliminated all of the O.T and most of the Gospels.

(2) Another early leader, Origen, was so worried about lust that he severed his penis.
Augustine in a much more sane manner prayed to God..."Lord make me chaste, but not yet".


(3) Constantine in making Christianity the state religion claimed to have seen a flaming cross in the sky. It is held my many that he saw the new religiont as passive and far easier to manipulate than the troublesome Judaism.


(4) Until the 5th century in the common era reincarnation was a belief held by many. It became anathema at this time when the Council saw it as negating the doctrine of Grace.

Things kinda got worse even.....................

And the Docetists.

Quote:Docetism is easily explained: It is a belief that Jesus Christ did not actually die, and therefore was never resurrected bodily. A number of Christian theologies have arrived at this conclusion, in different ways, so Docetism comes in a number of forms.

Obviously, they ended up on the orthodox shit list early on.
