Separating Fact from Fiction
I John 4: 1-7
(page before the Prologue)
"We believe in one God, the Father, Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible; and in the one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father, only-begotten, that is, from the substance of the Father; God from God, Light from Light, Very God from Very God, begotten not made, of one substance with the Father, through whom all things were made…
1. Constantine invented the deity of Christ in order to consolidate his power (pg. 233)
2. Constantine rejected other gospels from the New Testament (that were favorable to the divine feminine) because they did not suit his political agenda. (p.231)
3. The doctrine of Christ’s deity passed by a “relatively close vote.”(p.231)
1. Constantine didn’t invent Deity of Christ…it was already consensus of delegates. Two things confirms this.
2. Constantine and delegates eliminating books from New Testament.
“Aha! . . . The fundamental irony of Christianity! The Bible, as we know it today, was collated by the pagan Roman emperor Constantine the Great.”(pg. 231)”
“Constantine commissioned and financed a new Bible, which omitted those gospels that spoke of Christ’s human traits and embellished those gospels that made Him godlike. The earlier gospels were outlawed, gathered up, and burned.” (234)
Twenty rulings were issued at Nicaea, and the contents of all of them are still in existence today; not one of them refers to issues regarding which books were authoritative

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” v.1
“Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” 2 Cor. 11: 14
2. Make Christ the Key
“This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” v. 2-3
3. Remember that God is Greater
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” v.4-6
4. Love is Limitless
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” v.7
