The Apostolic History Outline is dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is
dedicated to those pious and unknown persons who, through the centuries,
the biblical tenets that constitute Acts 2:38 alive and utilized.
This book affirms that the UPPER ROOM CHURCH of Acts two, AD 30,
Jerusalem, was alive and doctrinally utilized in every decade since the day of
Pentecost until this moment. This is to say, the Church of Acts two never
and never ceased to function. Further, it never digresssed into lesser form.
Specifically, it never became Grecized or Latinized, meaning it was never
with Catholicism. Moreover, it was never in the hands of Martin Luther.
Christian doctrine (Acts 2:1-4, 36, 38; Deuteronomy 6:4) has always been
and apart from any other religion that would not have or hold Acts two
When the twelve Apostles legally — by divine command (Acts 10:42) —
down Acts 2:38 doctrine they understood that it was to be utilized every
of the two thousand (2000) year Church Age.
We believe that it somewhat injures the image of Christ’s own NT religion
which was based upon the pristine UPPER ROOM DOCTRINE — to think it
digressed to western Mediterranean Catholicism. Equally, we think it is
say that Luther restored the pure and holy Church that Christ Himself
(St. Mt. 16:18, Acts 2:1-39). The divinely established Church of Acts 2
never digress so as to become controlled by unregenerated men. We think it
to assume that Martin Luther — in his conductual-averagism — could restore

always used; the doctrine never needed restoring. We disclaim the step-bystep idea.
We place emphasis upon “The gates of hell shall never prevail against
This Outline has many proofs with which to assure the reader that the
Church of Acts two never died or became something else. Its divine
founding on the
Day of Pentecost insured its eternal continuity.
A Story About Oneness Apostolic History
History of the Judaic-Christian Church started on the Day of Pentecost, at
Jerusalem, AD 33,. We could refer to it as, “History of the Apostolic Church”.
Some of the
basic and fundamental eccelesiology laid down by the NT is found in Acts
- This eternal doctrine made history, a lengthy and illustrious history.
This Apostolic History Outline is published with the good intention of
interested readers with significant events, personalities, movements, and
in the history of the Pentecostal Apostolic Church.
No longer will Oneness Apostolic Christians be handicapped by a lack of
knowledge concerning many of those who preceded us in centuries past.
Christianity is no longer shrouded in mystery. Clearly revealed are
thousands of major
historical events, events which had important theological, geographical and
For many Apostolics, believers in Deuteronomy 6:4, it will come as a
shock to know
that our Petrine ecclesiology by AD 325 was slandered by the Catholic
heresy! The so-called Church of Rome invented dogmas for its own use
which, in a
sense, made a heretic out of Apostle Peter! Vatican officials greatly
attempted to defame the divine principles which constitute Acts two doctrine. In fact, Acts
two doctrinal concepts were ignored by the Catholic hierarchy before AD 325.
doctrinal roots of most of today’s modern nominal religions have grown
from the religion of Rome. Obiviously some parts of liturgies used in the modern church
from the big Old World religious institution. They do not line up with Acts
Deuteronomy 6:4. Moreover, alleged reformers like Luther, Calvin, and
some of their teachings and practices upon early traditions of the big
Historians and theologians have parroted those things and they fill religious
books. The great damage is, they only told their side of the story.
Why is there not more Apostolic Christian history available? Most was
destroyed. (A. S. Atya, p. 365). Biased and prejudiced historians have
sometimes deleted and often have distorted and smeared history concerning the Apostolic,
Jerusalemic Judaic-Christianity. Some historians did not appreciate Acts two
This is precisely why Oneness Apostolic history is harder to find.
Therefore, in order
to find history concerning adherents of Acts 2:38 ecclesiology we had to
such words or names as, “Modalistic Monarchianism, Patripassianism, or
Sabellianism!” And, really, these Greek words and names stem from slander. Oneness
were often referred to by these names.
Apostolic Pentecostal Christianity went through fires of persecution. Its
greatly suffered, as we shall see. Catholic leaders as well as European High
ones martyred them by hundreds of thousands. In fact, we found Oneness
researching ancient records which told of their martyrdom!
Fortunately, even under the circumstances mentioned, we were able to
fascinating history of the Apostolic Christians. Hence this Apostolic History
is the end product of tremendous effort, and its succeeds in constituting an
story concerning Oneness Christian history.

A handful of well-meaning persons have assumed that a century or so after
of Pentecost that the church died, or suffered an awful fate of being
Catholicized. Nothing like that happened. Thankfully, this negative type of
thinking is disappearing from the scene. God’s church was too strong to
enduring than that. It is now almost consentaneous, most now see the
infallible promise of longevity and continuity in St. Mt. 16:18.
The part, “the gates of hell shall not prevail,” contains eternized
ingredients, and promises an everlasting quality, and indestructible structure. If Christ’s church
had succumbed to some evil, then Christ’s words would have contained a
degree errancy. But in Christ there was no chance of error.
“Upon this rock I will build My church,” He affirmed. With all of its
legitimate quality the visible church could not fall to any foe.Why? It is strong, eternized,

ingredients contained in Acts two. “God never left Himself without a

preaching and practice and these men contributed to divine perpetuation of

We assert in this Apostolic History Outline that holy men continued in the
doctrine of Acts 2:38. (Acts 2:42). Men have hazarded their very lives for
belief which the Apostles laid down. This type of love for biblical truth that
preached is the means by which the Church’s life was maintained. Further, it

The Never Dying Church
The Imperishable Doctrine of Acts 2:38
This is an effort to gain complete reader confidence. It is necessary to
that the ancient religious bodies we refer to as monotheistic were, indeed,
Here is how we prove they were. We know that historians classified certain
bodies as having been Monarchian, Patripassian, or Sabellian. This means
were recognized as having been adherents of Deuteronomy 6:4 — and thus
Rome’s Trinity. We know also that the Jesus Name water baptism was
integral in these
Bible believing bodies.
MONTANISM, after Montanus, Montanists. These were tongues-speakers,
gifts and knew miracles. (Blunt, pp340,341). They were categorized as
having no divisions in the Godhead. John Wesley considered Montanism to
biblical Christianity. (Blunt, pp. 440,441; Knox pp. 39, 451).
DONATIST, after Donatus, Donatism. they were tagged as having been of
Sabellianism and Patrpassianism, holding a Judaistic Godhead concept along with the
2:38 Christ baptism. (See Blunt, p. 127, R. Bainton, p. 279; Knox, pp. 50,
MANICHAEISM, after Mani, Manichee. They revered Pentecost, Jesus
p. 291). They were classified as having been Monarchians and of
pp. 412, 413). At first it had a doctrinal stigma, they corrected the matter.
The Samosatenes, Artemonites, Donatists, Paterinui, Bogomils, and other Oneness
bodies were associated doctrinally with Manichaeism. After ca. AD 1800 not all Manichee
SAMOSATENE, after Paul of Samosata, Samosatenism. Quote: “Paul held
the Oneness of God without distinction of persons.” (Blunt, pp. 515, 516). He was a
JudaicChristian, holding Acts 2:38. (Blunt, p. 517).
ARTEMONITE, after Artemon, Aretemonites. They were avid Modalistic
Monarchians. (Blunt, p. 515). remarkably, this Jesus Name religion lived on through
dates of AD 1590-1633! In Europe John Crellyet, preached this Acts two

Catholicism — CONSTANTINIANISM!
ARIUS and ARIANISM appeared
Arius denied the Trinity idea by ca. AD 300. (J. H. Blunt, p. 144; Bernstein
Green). Most Arians baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. By AD 800
in W. Europe was close to Jesus Name monotheism. (L. Duchesne, p. 293;

AD 240. MANI, born in Persia, was a Judaic-Christian. He was both hated
smeared (defamed) by Catholics and their historians. He baptized in Jesus

AD 455. VANDALS LOOTED ROME. Apostolics had rest.
AD 476. ROMAN EMPIRE FELL!
Rome could no longer lord over other nations. Vain historians wept and
over the fall of Rome! It was mainly secular Roman corruption as well as
apostasy that brought the so-called Dark Ages. Nevertheless, Pope Gelasius,
496, proclaimed the popes to be ABOVE all laws, and not subject to any
authority! Was this outlawry? (L. Boettner, p. 235).
Dark Ages from AD 476 to 1000
AD 483. BAR SOMA embraced monotheistic Nestorianism in Armenia. For
centuries Nestorianism was a variant of Oneness, Acts 2:38. (A. S. Atiya, p.

Most of the nonCatholic bodies were collectively referred to as, CATHARI.
AD 400-497. Pentecostal Donatists were more numerous than Catholics.

Manichaeans became known as Bogomils. From AD 296 until 1100 they
were violently slaughtered by militant Catholics. (Langer, p. 340, 341; Laux, p. 141,
At this time many Oneness Christians sought protection under the Goths and
Vandals. (Wm. Langer, p. 144; H. Trevor-Roper, p. 155).
AD 419-501. Tolouse was a GOTHIC state. It was protected as an Apostolic
stronghold. (Langer, p. 144).
SEVEN CHURCHES OF ASIA yet ALIVE! (Rev. 1:11)

AD 431. NESTORIANISM, a Oneness variant — swept from Petra to China.
(A. S. Atiya, pp. 258-264; Langer, 340, 537; Blunt, p. 368). Until ca. 1700
Nestorians were monotheists and used Acts 2:38 tenets. Most then knew
glossolalia. Nestorius refused to call Mary, The Mother of God.
AD 440. Catholics were run out of Armenia. (Laux p. 155). One-God-ism
glossolalia immediately had a revival.
AD 440. Spirit tongues were in Persia. Celtic Pentecostalism was
W. Europe — Frisia, Saxony, Languedoc. They baptized into Christ. (E. T.
Thompson, p. 108; Bede, p. 148). Oneness Pentecostalism traveled in most bodies
Montanists, Manichee, Nestorians, Samosatenes, Artemonites. These were
Patripassian. They, by 440, had Gothic Bibles. Tongues-speaking was in
the Eastern Hemisphere. (M. T. Kelsey, p. 43; Tom Dowley, p. 115; Wade
p. 150 as to tongues. NOTE: “God . . . He left not Himself without witness . .
(Acts 14:17. Inevitably some persons held Peter’s doctrine. Oneness
was a dominant force helping to shape history. (See: McGiffert, p. 229).
AD 476. The cruel Roman Empire had been divinely destroyed . Thus
Christianity could more spread; and spread it did. There were montheistic
in Palestine with the Christ water baptism. (A. Neander, p. 234). Origen
Acts 15:1-5 described them. They were of the Apostolic faith.
AD 497. NOTE: We see now that the Upper Room faith — meaning
Christianity of Acts two — consisted of a number of fraternally linked
or pious organizations. (H. Joachim-Schoeps, The Religions of Mankinds,
276). We refer to Monarchian, Patripassian, and Sabellian bodies. They
bitterly opposed emerging Catholicism. They held ‘olden Apostolic traditions’
p. 127) and used Christ Name exclusively. They held the church of Rome to
antichurch (Neander, p. 125, 127). The nonCatholic bodies we mention held
doctrines of earlier Judaic-Christians. They especially adhered to Jesus Name
water baptism (Acts 2:38) and Mosaic Godhead doctrine of Deuteronomy 6:4. The
system cast them out — out of what its vain hierarchy called the, “Cathedra
(A. Neander, pp. 124-127).
AD 500 to 600
EUROPEAN TRINITARIANISM fought MONOTHEISM
NOTE: Catholic invented Trinitarianism caused more mass deaths —
than any other thing. The magic in the numeral three (3) of the TRINITY —
created havoc, hysteria and divisions that led to millions of deaths. (L.
Mathematics For The Million, pp. 26, 226). Few people realize that
which led to the Inqusition in Spain, (with its Auto da Fes and quemaderos,)
antiSemitics like Catholic Ferdinand and Isabella, Torquemada, (and Hitler,)
stemmed from Rome’s Trinitarianism! (See: Ed. A. Synan, The Popes and the
the Middle Ages, Macmillan, NY, 1965, p. 1).
AD 506. Clovis, an Emperor.
Arian Goths and Visigoths fought Catholic armies and gave protection to
monotheistic Christians. (Langer, p. 144).
AD 508. Western Europe was not Catholicized. (Laux, pp. 189-207). There
thought of papal power.
HARNACK wrote, “Catholicism is a Greek product in Christian dress . . . A
religion under the alien influence of Christianity.” (What Is Christianity, pp.
AD 531. JUSTINIAN, was a Catholic Emperor. He compiled Roman Laws
NOVELLAE. (C. Roth, p. 35). Here were the basic laws the Vatican used for
AD 533. The NOVELLAE (Roman laws ) constituted the JUSTINIAN
CODE — a
right to kill law! (E. T. Thompson, pp. 38-40). Under it almost all
could be slaughtered at will and their belongings confiscated! (Bernstein &
p. 112). It was earth’s most inhuman and inhumane law.
CATHOLIC INQUISITIONAL LAWS
ZWANGTAUFE and COERCIONISM reign!
Great numbers were forced into Catholicism. The Justinian Code meant
and confiscation of properties for Arians and otheres in nonCatholic
(E. T. Thompson, p. 117; H. Trevor-Roper, p. 156). Under this law Jews
mass murdered. (Thompson, p. 117).
AD 563. COUNCIL of Braga was held. It condemned tongues-speaking
Priscillianists. (J. B. Russell p. 12).
AD 565. Justinian was captured and killed by those he had tried to destroy —
the Goths. (H. Trevor-Roper, p. 41).
AD 570. MOHAMMED was born. (Muslims in Spain were Moors).
(Moslems, Mohammedans) instantly killed Catholics on the spot — they
erroneously called them Christians. But Mohammedans seldom killed Jews or
one-God believers. The Mohammedan “COVENANT of UMAR,” gave
protections and rights to both Jews and one-God Apostolics. (Ed. A. Synan, p. 53).
Both pious Jews and Apostolics to Muslims were, People of the Book. There
was friendly trade between them. (Blunt, p. 15).
AD 597. AUGUSTINE — a monk — was sent to Britain along with 40 other
clerics by Pope Gregory I. Canterbury became a Catholic center. The British
Isles were full of Oneness (Celtic) Apostolics, and Catholic Augustine made
but little headway. (E. T. Thompson, pp. 106-108).
AD 500 to 600
CATHARI — were people of the True Christian Church in different
They had Gothic Bibles. (See: C. F. Potter, p. 174).
UPPER ROOM doctrine shined throughout DARK AGES.
The individualistic makeup — yet doctrinal likeness — of the Cathari
we mention, together with courage of their refusal to conform to the norms
of corrupt Catholicism, led them in the biblical way to maintain Acts 2:38
Beyond the reach of Rome in outlying places such as Saxony, Frisia
Languedoc, etc., there were whole organizations of Acts two Christians.
(See J. H.
Blunt, p. 15; Z. Oldebourg, p. 258). J. B. Russell mentioned these Apostolic
5-12. There were many One-God Preachers in AD 563. Contrary to biased
historians, it was through Montanism, Donatism, Samosatenism, and Celtic-Gothic
doctrine that Acts 2:1-4, 36, 38, traveled.
AD 502. WOLFEIN’s One-God preaching had paid off. (H. Daniel-Rops, p.
Indo-European tribes held Pentecostalism as in Acts two. (Thompson, p.
Neander, p. 49). H. Daniel-Rops, p. 110 affirmed that the majority of the
W. European tribes had been baptized into the Name — Jesus Christ, before
in the Roman Empire. (E. T. Thompson, p. 108; M. Lambert, p. 62;
Neander, p. 49).
AD 525. There was a controversy between Catholics and Apostolic Celts
over baptism. (N. C. Eberhardt, p. 351). Most W. Europeans refused Rome’s Triune
AD 527. Many Burgundians were Apostolic Pentecostal. AD 536-563,
PRISCILLIANISM (glossolalic) was throughout the Old World. (Eberhardt, p. 238;
pp. 30. 31).
AD 540-670. Bede, English History,p. 148, found one-God-people
England. there was no thought of papal authority in W. European lands.
(E. T. Thompson, p. 106).
AD 545-900. Ethiopian (N. African Christianity,) was all across Northern
and was dominant. (R. A. Knox, p. 58, is indicative of this time).
Theodosius had persecuted nonCatholics; and Justinian had slain those
heretics, now both were dead. Moslems and other invaders overwhelmed the
Roman Empire. True Christians — slandered as heretics — welcomed these
conquerors and were protected by them. (H. Trevor-Roper, p. 41).
NOTE: Great numbers of those slurred as, “heretics,” were Jesus Name
The Catholic hierarchy after AD 325 insinuated that the Acts two
heresy! (Who were those that the Catholics slandered as, ‘pagans’?”) They
suffered having their temples and churches confiscated.
AD 600. Pope Gregory I, tried to have all DONATISTS in Africa killed for
Acts two ecclesiology. (N. C. Eberhardt, p. 326; also A. Neander, pp. 125-
AD 600 to 700
(See: C. Roth, The Spanish Inquisition, p. 60).
Pope Gregory I fixed the PURGATORIAL RITE. It is from the Orphic cult,
of purification — “Sacrum Purgatorium,” of the Lugentes Campe — which
“dismal regions”. (Dr. F. S. Reinhart, Facts for Roman Catholics, p. 19).
ordered the mass murder of Donatists. (Laux, p. 195). He was the biggest
in Italy. (Langer, p. 152) He stole (confiscated) churches and building
others to build basilicas in Rome. Under him Arians and Apostolics were
ed. (Robinson et. al., Earlier Ages, p. 339).
The Catholic leaders ignored the “Jerusalemic Church” yet existing, and its
apostolic traditions. (A. Neander, p. 172).
The propaganda about St. Peter’s bones in Rome started! (A. Neander, p.
p. 123: “Peter was never its pope.”
AD 607. Catholic Boniface I, could not convert the Indo-European tribes; he
ordered to leave. (E. T. Thompson, p. 108, 109; Wm. Langer, p. 150; J.
p. 210). Later Pepin, and Charlemagne — Catholic rulers — fought these
of Europe and slew many; and forced others into Catholicism. (Langer, pp.
155). NOTE: There were no Catholics in Frisia until 689. (Laux, p. 218).
THE GREAT EASTER FIGHT in England
AD 625-638. Pope Honorius I, was fanatically Church-State. He had Jews
Spain. Earlier, AD 610, many Arians in Spain were killed. (J. N. D. Kelley,
MOSLEMS FOUGHT CATHOLICS
AD 622. ISLAMISM was strong. Muslims had the KORAN — their Holy
(Bernstein & Green, pp. 164, 165). Muslims in Spain were Moors; and they
protected Jews and one-God Christians from Catholic interests.
AD 663 The Catholic party had a basilica in Canterbury, but it was a

two religions fought it out in king Oswy’s Court! (E. T. Thompson, Through
Ages, p. 107; J. Laux, p. 196). Again it is obvious that almost all IndoEuropeans
were nonCatholic. (J. B. Russell, pp. 8, 172-181).
AD 670. King Oswy died. He had been Oneness Apostolic, but he had
wavered toards the Roman party.
AD 675. Boniface (Winifred) was born, a Catholic missionary to W. Europe,
used military force to make converts. (Wm. Langer, p. 150).
AD 680. The 6th General Council of Constantinople
AD 695. JEWS were KILLED IN SPAIN. (C. Roth, p. 35; J. B. Russell,
Adult Jews were martyred in Spain by Catholic believers, and CHILDREN
OF JEWISH PARENTAGE were seized and reared as Catholics! (C. Roth, p. 127).
AD 600 to 700
Continuing Jerusalemic Christianity was found in several Modalistic
Monarchian organizations. These were generally referred to as: CATHARI.
AD 600. DESPOSYNI: The Desposyni — Acts 2:38 Jewish Bishops were
extinct. (M. Martin, Decline and Fall of the Roman Church, p. 42). Greatly
respected, they were descendants of Mary — the Mother of Jesus, Zacharias
Elisabeth, and had directed several Mideastern Judaic Christian areas. Most
been martyred by militant Catholics. Quote: ” . . . By the sword Roman
hunted them as outlaws!” (M. Martin, p. 44).
AD 610. Arians and Oneness Apostolics were close, and had common social
Most Arians by now used the Christ water baptism. (H. Daniel-Rops, pp.
J. B. Russell, on p. 8, tells about the Apostolics of the time.
GOTHIC BIBLES were in widespread use.
In W. Eupopean lands the masses of Arians and Apostolics worshipped
Quote: “Splendid voices of the Germanic choirs soared to the heavens!” (H.
Daniel-Rops. p. 111). Spirit filled glossolalists filled the lands.
AD 610. JESUS NAME WATER BAPTISM (Lambert, p. 62).
The Jesus Christ water baptism was almost the only one in Frisia until AD
There were almost no Catholics. (J. Laux, p.218). Apostolic preaching had
maintained — holiness and tongues-speaking continued. there were gifts of
spirit. (J. B. Russell, p. 8, could imply this).
AD 600-800. Quote, “They baptized into Christ.” (E. T. Thompson, p. 108).
AD 663. “They were one-God people.” (Bede, English History, p. 148).
14th of NISAN kept! Real EASTER kept!
Note: For 626 years (since AD 37-42) Apostolic Celts in Britain had kept
NISAN Passover. A Jesus Name Apostolic had planted Acts 2:38 at
37-42. In 663 it was the dominant religion by far. (E. T. Thompson,
Ages, pp. 106, 108; M. Deanseley, p. 14; Bede, p. 148; J. T. McNeill, pp. 10-
156). Wolflein’s Gothic Bible was greatly used.
NOTE: The world has been duped into supposing Catholicism was the only
there was. This happened because Oneness history was often destroyed, or
or distorted by prejudiced historians.
There was Pentecostal glossolalia throughout W. Europe and in the British
stemming from enduring Montanism. M. Lambert, on p. 62, referring to
tonguesspeakers as Priscillianists. They had the gifts of the Spirit, etc.
BY AD 663 — obviously there were two very different theological

The other — the Catholic system that merely claimed to be Christianity. By then the
belief was dogmatized into fixed forms of liturgy. We found evidence —

AD 720. Catholics reached W. Germany. (J. Laux, p. 221).
AD 732. The Battle of Tours, won by Charles Martel, gave the Catholics a
temporary victory. (Bernstein & Green, p. 200).
AD 726. Byzantine Emperor Leo III forbade Image-worship. A big fight
western Catholicism wanted images. (Icons were images). Iconoclasts broke
images. ICONOLATRY stayed, and in 787 the Nicean Council approved of
images, crosses, beads, relics. (Bernstein & Green, p. 156; O. W. Heick, p.

refused image worship. (See Neander, p. 49; H. Daniel-Rops, p. 110; and
p. 220; Langer, p. 150.
AD 741. POPE ZACHARY was forced to admit that the JESUS CHRIST
baptism was VALID! (J. B. Russell, p. 172). By studying, Dissent and Reform

AD 746-748. Great PLAGUES struck — cholera, diptheria (Black Death), in
them millions perished. (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 17, Chicago, p.
AD 751. Popes traded lands for protection by kings. (Langer, pp. 150-152).
The Vatican owned much land.
AD 756. Pepin gave the Vatican the “PAPAL LANDS.” By AD 800,
CHARLEMAGNE entered ROME with his army, illegally took Pope Leo III out of
penitentiary, and at St. Peter’s was crowned “Emperor of the Holy Roman
Empire!” (Thompson, p. 123; r. Bainton, p. 154; Laux, p. 252).
AD 700 to 800
Celtic-Gothic (Acts two) Christianity permeated W. Europe.
Oneness Apostolic Christianity was throughout the Eastern Hemisphere,
Frisia to China, in massive organizations which had different names —
Donatist, Manichee, etc. There could have been 30 to 40 Oneness Apostolic
Organizations. (Blunt, p. 185; Knox, p. 72). Apostolic churches had continued.

Lyons, France. (Russell, pp. 5-12, 23, 172-175; Z. Oldenbourg, p. 255;
AD 712-744. Arian Lombards had an independent area in Italy. Rome’s
was ignored. At the same time, “Aldebert preached Apostolic simplicity,”
J. B. Russell, p. 10. (Langer, p. 150). NOTE: It is amazing to find so many
references concerning ancient Oneness Apostolic people and their preachers.
Oneness Apostolic Christianity was much more pervasive than we have been
By AD 730 great numbers of Arians were also immersing into the Name —
CHRIST. Pope Zachary was forced to acknowledge that the Christ baptism

Lambert wrote: “They accepted the baptism of adults, . . . baptism into
(Lambert, p. 62; H. Daniel-Rops, p. 110).
AD 731. Bede found tongues-speaking among Indo-European tribes. (Bede,
pp. 15, 16; English History, p. 148).
AD 730-790. By reading Russell, p. 172-175, it is refreshing to find the
continuing Upper Room (Jerusalemic religion. The Catholic bishops referred
as: “Idolatrous rites, heresy, and paganism!” Oneness preachers were
as “pseudoprophets!” Pope Zachary ordered Boniface to call a synod to rally
Rome’s party against holders of Jerusalem’s true religion! Catholic’s clerics
719-723 called biblical Acts two doctrine: ” a barbarously corrupted
Christianity!” (J. B. Russell, p. 175). Quote: ” The majority (of Indo-Europeans)
by the spell of their ‘old superstition’ (meaning Acts 2:38 doctrine) baptized
name of Christ.” (E. T. Thompson, p. 108).
AD 754. On June 5th, the foul mouthed Boniface was killed for his many
against W. European people. (Wm. Langer, p. 150; J. Laux, p. 228).
In the 8th century — contrary to popular opinion — the Romish party was not
dominant one. It became dominant in Europe only after 1233 crusades aginst
Apostolic Albigensians. (Blunt, pp. 15-18; Z. Oldenbourg, p. 262).
AD 771. CHARLEMAGNE was the Emperor. (M. Martin, The Decline &
of the Roman Church, pp. 91-100, best describes Pope Leo and
It is not a pretty picture!). Charlemagne was illiterate, seven-foot, and bullet-
headed, to hear M. Martin tell it. At any rate, he compelled most to pay tithe
into the Vatican. He relentlessly warred against some Western European tribes
which held nonCatholic Christianity, and sent many to death. He compared
Ferdinand and Isabella, Torquemada, or to Hitler.
AD 800 to 900
See: J. Laux, Church History, pp. 239, 250.
AD 800. Vain kings like Pepin, Charles Martel, Charlemagne, etc., bowed to
popes. Rev. 17:10; Wm. Langer, pp. 150-155; and O. W. Heick, p. 280, describe the Vatican’s role with rulers.

CHARLEMAGNE: CHURCH and STATE!
Constantianism merged into COERCIONISM of cruel Charlemagne. He
forced people into Catholicism. (Langer, p. 153, 170; J. Laux, p. 253).

St. Sophia Council was held. (Laux, p. 293). Great confusion in Catholic
AD 842. St. Theodora imposed Catholicism in the East. (Laux, p. 293).
Oneness resisted. Note: Generally in Europe and the Mideast nearly all
as heretic, except Jews, Muslims, and Arians, were Oneness Apostolic under
name or another. (Knox, p. 72, as an example).
“STREAMS OF HERETICS!” (Blunt, p. 16).
What Catholics called heretics often were Bible-believing, Sprit-filled,
morally clean, good citizens, who only wanted to be left alone by Rome.
MOST NATIONS WERE NON-CATHOLIC
AD 858-867. POPE NICHOLAS admitted that JESUS NAME baptism was
valid one! (Encyclopedia Britanica, 11th ed., Vol. 3, pp. 365-366). By
the Acts 2:38 water baptism was called, “the improper one,” and those who
adhered to it were “everywhere,” as J. B. Russell, pp. 172-177, affirmed. There
what the Romish party referred to as: “infestations of false Christians!”
(E. T. Thompson, P. 108; Russell, pp. 172-177; M. Lambert, p. 62).
AD 863. Most nations were militarily forced into Catholicism, forced by
IMPERIAL EDICT. SLAVICS forced into it. (Bernstein & Green, p. 123; Langer,
161-181; Laux, 275-288).

But when possible great numbers of Catholic people defected. (Russell, pp.

(Catholicism was mostly confined to Italy, southern Greece, Corsica,
Bavaria, and Constantinople itself).
SAMOSATENISM was dominant in Asia Minor. (J. H. Blunt, p. 516, found
it to be
Monarchianism-Sabellianism). Samosatene Armenians were yet strong in
- (G. H.
Williams, p. 676). Nestorianism was throughout the Mideast. (Blunt, p. 370;
pp. 261-264). Manichaeism was in most of these sprawling areas also; it,
too, was an
Apostolic-Pentecostal variant. (Blunt, p. 287). Celtic-Gothic Apostolics

were interwoven from Frisia to India. We are now convinced that these were
the alleged heretics; also, we now claim most of them to have been monotheistic
variants. They permeated the whole Eastern Hemispere. there were 40 to 50
tions of Apostolics in the 9th century.
THE REAL CHURCH AT ITS PEAK!
AD 830. BERNARD ROTHMANN of 1528 researched this 9th century
scene. He found the Petrine — Acts two doctrine, to have been “the religion,”
the dominant one. (F. J. Wray, Reformation Studies, 1962, Va., p. 229). J. B.
on pp. 172-180, described the same situation. Apostolic bodies or
organizations challenged the Vatican-Italian religion and could not be suppressed. (J. Laux, p.
The 9th century had more Apostolics than any other. Our references tend to
this. (Z. Oldenbourg, p. 29, 41, 255; J. B. Russell, pp. 5-14, 172-178).
AD 879. During the 9th century it is true that the Catholic system almost
suffered collapse, and we mean totally. (See: J. B. Russell, pp. 172-178; Langer, p. 153,
various peoples (ethnic groups) that were militarily forced into Catholicism
— many of
them — revolted, defected. Alcuin asked Charlemagne: “What has this
on people preserved?” Millions turned from Catholic to the ancient

was suspected of turning to Apostolic belief. (J. B. Russell, p. 178). Apostolic
everywhere. The world will not receive it, but there were more “false
priests,” as they
were called — who had not been ordained in the Catholic system — than
Catholic ones. (Russell, p. 174).
AD 882. On August 28, Pope John VIII had an Apostolic preacher —
Maimberto, arrested for preaching against the Trinity. (Russell, p. 178; M. Lambert, p. 62).
Most nonCatholic European organizations — except Arian, Jewish, or
Moorish ones —
were adherents of Acts two ecclesiology until ca. AD 1164 when Peter

SIMONY erupted. Simony denotes offices bought or sold for money or
Some popes sold offices to the highest bidders. (Langer, pp. 215-217).
POPES and bishops became feudal lords. The Marozia family ruled the
and Rome. Theodora and other immoral women were in the Vatican; sex
erupted. Let all read: J. Laux, pp. 265-273; and Wm. Langer, 214-218.
Catholic encyclopedias relate these stories with all their filthy details —
single blush! The Vatican was a quagmire of graft, simony and vice. (E. T.
Thompson, p. 125; Phillip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, pp. 283).
immorality caused great defection.
WHY HAD THIS HAPPENED?
About AD 90 to 140 when Catholic Greek bishops ignored biblical, Acts
2:38 ecclesiology (Neander, p. 127), and invented the Greek-Latin Trinity
with its Triune infant baptism and then devised “do penance,” these
to utter apostasy. The sin — CONDUCTUAL AVERAGISM was the result.
Catholic goal: All-in-a-given-locality will naturally lead to an immoral
AD 920. The Vatican acquired additional lands, there were bequeathals to
the Vatican. Bishops confiscated lands for the Vatican. (Robinson, Earlier Ages,p.
AD 928. Cities and towns had new importance. Jewish intellects directed
construction of many cities, especially those of Spain and Portugal. From AD 800
1100 many Jewish families settled in Spain and Portugal. They built
hospitals, highways, etc., only to have them stripped from them in 1492.
better under Muslim rule than under Catholic (S. T. Lachs & S. P. Wachs,
p. 19). Muslims accepted Jews and Oneness as, People of the Book. In AD
Muslims smashed Catholic idols.
AD 963. Quote: “In 963 Otto I deposed John XII, and had the council to
successor. For forty years thereafter the emperors determined the choice of
. . . first a German, then a Frenchman.” (R. bainton, pp. 167).
SIN of INVESTITURE
When a bishop was chosen, the feudal lord went to the investiture ( a
giving) — investing him with titles, office and lands. Then the bishop
“man” of the lord, and served him! Later the lord handed the bishop the legal
to his lands. Thus the lands passed on to the Vatican. (Robinson, p. 446).
AD 995-999. King Olaf I, martyred thousands and with military might
imposed Catholicism. (Wm. Langer, p. 204; J. Laux, p. 279). About the same time
was — by power of the sword — imposed in Iceland and Greenland.
It is amazing to learn that much of the earth was subjected to Roman
the bloody sword of military might!
AD 900 to 1000
There were many Oneness Apostolics organizations throughout the Eastern
Hemiisphere. We have named many of them. They were under different names, e.
Samosatene. Historians generally referred to these pious bodies with such a
standard of holiness as: CATHARI. Their great numerical status actually
the Catholic hierarchy. (See: J. Laux, pp. 350-351; R. Bainton, p. 279; and J.
Blunt, pp. 15, 22, 382, 412, 440, 516). “They threatened to desolate Catholicism!”
AD 909, June 26. Archbishop Herve of Reims, stated that it had been
for many years to convene a Catholic synod due to three reasons: one was
because of the “infestations of false Christians.” (J. B. Russell, p. 180).He
that Oneness Apostolic bodies permeated European nations. (J. Laux, p.
Their great numbers hindered Rome.
Slanted and biased historians like Blunt, Bainton, Thompson, Laux, Knox,
each mercilessly slandered and libeled the above Christians with names like:
heretics, insane and raving, Wiedertaufer, Sacrament-schwarmer, Winckler,
GLOSSOLALIA — tongues-speaking by some historians was often
often referred to as MYSTICISM.
AD 915. After researching histories by the above men — we can see that
a big number of Oneness Apostolic organizations which preached all of Acts
— advocated glossolalia, and demanded clean and pure living. There were
miracles and gifts of the Spirit. See: R. A. Knox, Enthusiasm, pp.72-91
has a list of many of the bodies; Laux, p. 351. (J. B. Russell, pp. 5-8, 173;
Schaff, pp. 229-231; W. Horton, pp. 69-96 as to glossolalia).
FURTHER, by reading J. H. Blunt, pp. 22, 190, 338, 440, one will find that
of the many organizations slandered as heretics were nearly all doctrinally
— especially in relation to Acts two tenets. Monarchianism and
which were almost identical with Sabellianism — ran as a common thread
most nonCatholic bodies until ca. AD 1164. (J. H. Blunt, pp. 189; Wm.
Peter WALDO, AD 1164-1179, of Lyons, France, was the first Protestant to

NOTE: In AD 1078, the Catholic system under Inge, confiscated (stole) the
beautiful Church at Upsala, Sweden. (J. Laux, p. 277). It may have been a former
Oneness Christian Church. This is one example as to how the Catholic system
acquired its churches,

Martyrs Miror, p. 293-297, tells much about these Apostolics from an ancient Oneness
(G. H. Willians, p. 677). References concerning Apostolics turn up
the 11th and 12th centuries.
There were APOSTOLIC STRONGHOLDS or dominated regions — some
Saxony, Frisia, Flanders, Lombardy and Languedoc. (J. H. Blunt, pp. 14-18;
p. 351; R. A. Knox, pp. 95-115; Z. Oldenbourg, pp. 29, 41, 255).

Albigensians was also the country of the Camisards. (Blunt, p. 19).
AD 1100 to 1200
AD 1100. QUOTE: “Multitudes rushed headlong out of the Catholic
(J. Laux, p. 352).
SIMONY was rife. (J. B. Russell, p. 41, 126-151).
AD 1115. Countess Matilda gave the Vatican great tracts of land. (Langer, p.
The vile CRUSADERS confiscated lands and possessions — including
BANKS, and gave them to the Vatican. There was no such thingas a holy
Crusade! The Crusades were a Vatican device.
AD 1118 there were two popes at once — Gelasia I, and Gregory VII; and in
were Honorious I, and Celestine I. Pope fought pope. (Wm. Langer, p. 215;
D. A. Yallop, IN GOD’s NAME, Bantam, NY, 1984). Rome’s Catholic party
to commit genocide against Byzantine Catholics!
AD 1121. The COUNCIL of SOISSONS defended Rome’s Trinity theory
Schoolmen’s attack. Sabellianism and Monarchianism are associated with
schoolmen. (Blunt, p. 36). Modalistic Monarchianism was as strong as ever.
AD 1142. ARNOLD of BRESCIA actually subdued the Vatican for 20
fought its falsity and apostasy, and sought to impose Jersalemic or Apostolic
simplicity. (Blunt, p. 52; Martrys Mirror, pp. 293-296).
AD 1145. Pope Eugene II hung Arnold of Brescia, cremated him and threw
ashes in the Tiber. (Ibid.)
AD 1146. ABELARD, PETER the MONK, and PETER BRUIS (Petrobrusians)
defected Catholicism, declared it to be false. It can be believed that they
were rebaptized into the Name — Jesus Christ.
AD 1146. St. BERNARD of CLAIRVAUX, France, was a militant Catholic.
p. 322). He confiscated great Clairvaux Valley from the Apostolics and built
monastery. He executed Abelard there later, many think. (Mart. Mir., pp.
taken from ancient Apostolic records). He slaughtered many Apostolics. He
urged the 2nd Crusade. “Kill, kill for Christ,” he screamed.
AD 1147. In St. Bernard’s time, “33% of the Catholics went to protestant
(Winckelpredigten) conventicles to worship.” (Verduin, p. 173). People shunned the
religion of Rome.
TRINITARIANISM CALLED ILLEGAL. (Blunt, p. 36; R. Bainton, p. 237;
Williams, p. 718). Men openly debated aginst Rome’s Trinity. NOTE: Here
was another turning point in religious history!
AD 1164. PETER WALDO Appeared! (Blunt, p. 617).
PROTESTANT TRINITARIANISM CAME!
Waldensianism held Rome’s Trinity. In 1179 Waldo’s bishops went to Rome
for approval. (Blunt, p. 617). Waldo set the pattern for modern Trinitarian

AD 1189. The THIRD CRUSADE.
AD 1189 (1160-1223). The popes enacted “Decrees of Genocide,” against
the Albigensians. (Blunt, pp. 15-18).
AD 1100 to 1200
AD 1100. The CATHARI were almost consensually referred to as

MOST BODIES WERE ONENESS APOSTOLIC UNTIL PETER WALDO
Waldo, of Lyons, France, was the first or one of the first that we can find

PROTESTANTISM MIXED with CATHOLICISM!
AD 1161. Rev. GERARD and 30 other APOSTOLICS were murdered by
at Oxford. (Mart. Mir. p. 294).
AD 1163, August 2nd, at Cologne, Germany, Catholic Ecbert, a monk of
in a typical Catholic Auto da Fe burned pastor Arnold, Marsilius, and
Theodoric, Apostolic preachers, to death along with eight others. (Braght, Mart. Mir. p.

THOUSANDS OF APOSTOLICS PUT TO DEATH in 1182. Philip — the
Flanders, and William the archbishop of Rheims, caused many to bear
to be burned. In 1184 or 1185 Pope Lucius issued a decree in Verona, in the
presence Of Emperor Frederick that all those he thought to be heretics were to
be mercilessly killed. (Braght, Mart. Mir. p. 297). 7000 people referred to as, pious
of Jesus, were martyred in Bourges. So many Apostolics and Jews were put
by so few Catholics! They were called, “true Christians,” and had nicknames
Humilitani, Paterini, Patriciani, Arnoldists, etc., and were categorized as
(J. H. Blunt, p. 412).
AD 1200 to 1300
A century of CATHOLIC MASS MURDER. The INQUISITION was set in
It was an INSANITY, devised by insane minds at the Vatican.
AD 1200. The Vatican owned about 1/5th of France.
AD 1202-1204. The FOURTH CRUSADE. Rome’s CRUSADERS took
Constantinople, and W. Catholics massacred Byzantine ones. (Berns. & Green, p. 226;
R. Bainton, pp. 205, 210, 212; Lach & Wachs, p. 21).
AD 1205. England was merely a papal fief. (Laux, p. 345).
AD 1208-1215. A Spaniard, Pedro of Argon, was sent by the Vatican with
Crusaders to exterminate the Christian Albigensians. Inquisitor De Montfort,
was a killer for the Vatican, but he was killed about 1215. (Laux, pp. 354-358).
Oneness Apostolics, and other citizens were martyred. Tolouse was
500 towns in Languedoc were destroyed. (J. H. Blunt, pp. 16-18). 800
nobles, honorable men and women,, many possessing the Holy Ghost and Acts 2:38
hanged on trees and mutilated by Catholics. (Blunt, p. 18; Laux, p. 357).
CATHOLICISM WAS NOT CHRISTIANITY
AD 1215. JEWISH GHETTOS were invented by the Vatican. (Max Dimont,
Pope Innocent III, in 1215, drove the Jews into ghettos, deprived them of
stole their banks, and made them wear badges. Hitler — also a Catholic — did
thing. (F. H. Littell, p. 48).
AD 1217. FIFTH CRUSADE (Bernstein & Green, p. 226).
AD 1226. Catholic Knights forced their belief on more Slavics —
forced on them.
THE GREAT INQUISITION, AD 1233.
Inquisitores haereticae pravitatis. The Catholic INQUISITION, a system of
Tribunal Courts — officially founded by Pope Gregory IX, in AD 1233. It
July 15, 1834. It was a murder machine designed to exterminate
nonCatholics. It used
Roman Court Laws of the Theodosian-Justinian Codes. Under these (canon)
Ferdinand and Isabella massacred an estimated 6,000,000 Jews and other
people. (C. Roth, pp. 57, 227; H. C. Lea, pp. 109-130; Berstein & Green, pp.
302). C. S. Lovett, Voice In The Wilderness, p. 9, used the figure —
68,000,000, persons who perished in the INQUISITION! Their properties were confiscated,
of the stolen goods went to the Inquisitors, bounty-hunters! (C. Roth, p. 37;
R. Bainton, p. 211; Bernstein & Green, p. 255). Most do not know that Adolf Hitler
Catholic, and that 6,000,000 Jews also perished under him and that canon
law was again used.
AD 1248. SEVENTH CRUSADE
AD 1252. A papal bull authorized every kind of torture for nonCatholics. (C.
p. 37). Europe was turned into a torture chamber!
AD 1270. EIGHTH CRUSADE
AUTO DA FEs (Act of Faith!)
(Cecil Roth, pp. 108-110; Lachs & Wachs, p. 20). Americans can hardly
Catholics burned millions to death in a rite called, “Auto de Fe,” a carnival
called “Act of Faith!” Often thousands watched while Jews burned up!
AD 1200 to 1300
The CATHOLIC SYSTEM attempted genocide against true Apostolic

wanted civil and religious freedom. For this intolerant system martyred
some of them.
Most of them were of continuing Montanism, Donatism, Manichaeism,
Biased historians — not knowing who they were — slandered them as:
Bogomils, Henricians, Petrobrusians, Arnoldists, Paterini, Humilitini, etc. (See: Knox, p.
R. Bainton, p. 279; W. Horton, pp. 90, 91; Verduin, p. 195). Biased
historians marred their image with propaganda and slander. When they were driven out.,
then Catholic monasteries appeared. When they were driven out, then Catholic
monasteries appeared. Many fled into Moravia. Great numbers of these peoples were

AD 1260. Knox, p. 86, found Apostolics widespread. The number — 80,000,
is associated with Bohemia alone.
How many organizations of Oneness Apostolics, etc., were there, not
including Jewish or Muslim? Albigensian (Cathari) organizations were so big and
the Vatican feared. (Bainton, p. 279). Knox on p. 71-72 listed 36 bodies, but
were many more. Gregoire enumerated 80 nonCatholic religions. (Knox, p.

that they temporarily stopped Vatican activity! (Russell, p. 180; Blunt, p.
53.). By AD
1200 Albigensians, etc., numerically and doctrinally challenged Rome and
estimated 4,000,000 Acts two believers. These European organizations
almost put the
Vatican out of business. (See: Z. Oldenbourg, p. 254; Thompson, p. 157;
H. Kamen, p. 171).
URSINUS of ETHIOPIA, AD 1284
URSINUS, an Ethiopian scholar, declared that baptism into the Name —
alone was valid. This indicates that Philip’s Jersualemic doctrine never
out of Africa. (In Gennod, de Ser. Eccl. XXVII; Hilary, de Synod, IXXXV);
the Synod of Nemours, AD 1284). Later — slaves took Acts 2:38 into the West
AD 1300 to 1400
The CATHOLIC HIERARCHY became even more corrupt. (R. Bainton, pp.
235; L. Verduin, pp. 95-119; H. Trevor-Roper, p. 155; C. Roth, pp. 172,
LAWLESS ROME — LAWLESS POPES
AD 1303. Many historians describe the complete apostasy of the Vatican —
popes; but no pope brought more disgrace than Pope Boniface VIII. A bull is
a papal pronouncement. In the bull, Unam sanctum (One holy) Boniface exalted
and the papal office above all law or rulers. Actually he wanted “outlawry,”
outlawry to be thought holy! (Wm. Langer, pp. 215, 286; Bernstein & Green,
Kuiper, p. 135).
When MILITANT CATHOLICS gained control of S. France (Languedoc,
was frightful. They had mass murdered pious Albigensians, Jews, and other
French citizens. Catholic Knights raped, ravaged, looted and plundered; and
French government had to stop them, to stop the evil papcy!
BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY (1309-1378)
The French government under Bertrand de Got, found the papcy so corrupt,
deceitful and treacherous, that it ignored the bulls — Clericis laicos and Unam
and closed the Vatican by force. The papacy was forcibly moved from
Rome to Avignon, France. Actually the popes were locked up, in a palace
penitentiary! (Bernstein & Green, p. 238; Wm. Langer, p. 286; Kuiper, p. 135).
France’s minister Nogaret, threatened the evil Boniface with capital punishment.
AD 1307-1309. Templar Knights were papal bankers. The Templer Order
was abolished, the Hospitler took its place.
AD 1328-(1330). John Wycliffe was born at Wycliffe-on-Tees. He was a
in the University of Oxford. In 1381-1383 he worked intensely with aides to
translate the English Bible. He preached against the countless atrocities of the
He stated that that the Bible alone, without tradition, was the sole rule of
faith. In AD
1415, the Council of Constance condemned Wycliffe. In 1428 Wycliffe’s
were burned by papal command. (A. Curtis, Christ. Hist., 1985, p. 24).
AD 1347-1353. BLACK DEATH swept Europe.
Pandemic plagues of cholera and diptheria brought death to millions of
Some governments and populations failed. CRUSADERS had spread
syphilis, gonorrhea, and other communicable diseases. (H. Styler, Plague Fighters, p.
AD 1378. POPES RELEASED, RETUN TO ROME from Avignon.
used bribery to obtain their release. There was immediate antiSemitism.
1378 saw the great SCHISM. Papal scandals erupted.
AD 1391. JEWS MASSACRED IN SPAIN-EUROPE
AD 1391. On March 15, bishop Ferran Martinez started the anti-Jewish riot
It led to the great SPANISH INQUISITION. 50,000 Jews and Moors were
Auto da Fes, and 800,000 more victimized. (Cecil Roth, pp. 14-25).
AD 1392. Moors were Muslims forced into Catholicism. Marranos, were
Spain forced into that belief. The word — Marrano, in Spanish means,
“swine!” Calling American police officers, “pigs,” came from this source.
AD 1300 to AD 1400
AD 1300-1350. The many Albigensian organizations were — by historians —
to be referred to as Anabaptist. Before, or during the Tolosan Inquisition,
many thousands of Apostolics fled from Languedoc into Moravia of Czechoslavakia.
The Apostolic headquarters at Toulouse had been destroyed. Apostolic Oneness, as
well organizations of anti-Trinitarian, antipedobaptist people, became amplified in
and Lithuania, and rejected the Trinity. (G. H. Williams, p. 669). The OneGod people made some bishops admit that in the beginning there was only one God.
(Z. Oldenbourg, p. 263). By 1565, in Moravia, there were enough Apostolic
Oneness to form an “International Federation of Apostolic Churches.”
(G. H. Williams, p. 670 about the Federation).
AD 1300-1414. Gothic Bibles had been used. English Bibles were used in
15th century. Catholics burned all the Bibles they could. (L. Boettner, p. 89).
CATHOLICS HAD EARTH IN AN UPROAR
Dominican priests terrorized the lands! INQUISITIONAL procedure for
these bounty-hunting murderers was outlined in the “Practica inquisitionis Haereticae
Pravitatis!” (J. Laux, p. 368). NOTE: From AD 1233 when the INQUISITION
July 15, 1834, when it ended — was the darkest, most lethal and dangerous
earth history! An estimated 68,000,000 died. Masses of Pentecostal
martyred. (See: J. B. Russell, pp. 195-230).
AD 1312. There were Wales Holiness Brethren. There were also those called
Jumpers in England. (Blunt, p. 246). Celtic religion — stemming from
had never ceased. It (Acts two religion) had continued from Oswy’s time of

Frisia to Eastern China. The Catholic-Toulouse Inquisition had only further
Pentecostal Apostolics all over the Eastern Hemispere. Knox, on p. 84,
400,000 Manichaeans in Bohemia (Czechoslavakia) as late as 1460. Knox,
on pp. 90,
91, figured that some organizations of Albigensians were from the
Armenian Samosatenes). Paul of Samosata was a Sabellian Oneness. (Blunt,
190, 289, 412, 517, 606). Paul saw no divisions in the Godhead. Knox, pp.
found these monotheistic Apostolics all over Europe. (R. Bainton, p. 279;
pp. 195-216). Historians underestimated Apostolic numerical strength.
AD 1368. All nonCatholic Christians had to worship in Winckler fashion,
i.e., in secret, Winckelpredigten fashion. Jews had to also worship in secret.
AD 1369. Urban V, released from his Avignon incarceration and returned to
the Vatican. Instantly there were atrocities.
In AD 1381, the European peasants revolted against Catholic maltreatment.
AD 1400 to AD 1500
The Roman Catholic Inquisition turned Europe into a holocaust.
JEWS, MOORS, and ANABAPTISTS BURNED!
AD 1415. Catholics burned John Huss. (Laux, p. 408). Burning people up
stuff to Catholics; they either ruled or ruined.
AD 1420. TORQUEMADA (1420-1496) was born at Thomas, Spain. This
killer of Jews, Moors, and Apostolics, was only out done by Ferdinand and
or Hitler. (C. Roth, pp. 37-52). 6,000,000 went to their death in Spain alone.
p. 227; Bernstein & Green, pp. 237, 302). Torquemada had 250 armed
confiscated millions from Jews and Moors. (H. C. Lea, p. 333; C. Roth, p.
R. Bainton, p. 248).
AD 1425. Catholic AUTO da FEs were conducted against Hussites,
and Apostolics. (Laux, pp. 355-357). Cruel tortures were devised by
(Roth, p. 37).
Billions of dollars and millions of acres were seized from Jews, Moors, and
Anabaptists that Catholics annihilated. (H. C. Lea, p.333; C. Roth, pp. 51,53, 114-
Trevor-Roper, pp. 129, 156).
SLAVERY by PAPAL PERMISSION
AD 1441. Papal permission for SLAVERY was given to Prince Henry the
(Bernstein & Green, p. 302; Wm. Langer, pp. 486-504). Henry’s captains
slave trade by taking African Blacks to Portugal. Columbus introduced
Indian SLAVERY into the Americas — not American Southerners. Blame
for slavery. (The Detroit News, Aug. 24, 1970, Sec. A.) Papal permission was
granted to Henry to “crusade, conquer, mass murder the HEATHEN!” The
Henry were: Blacks, Malabarese, Chinese, W. Hemis. Indians, etc.!
(C. Hayes, p. 71-78).
AD 1450. Full papal supremacy over Europeans.
AD 1460. Catholic PODEBRAD persecuted Apostolics. 400,000 pious
fled into Bosnia. (Knox p. 81).
AD 1469. FERDINAND and ISABELLA of Spain were married, earth’s
greatest husband and wife team of Jew killers. They were worth nearly a billion after
Jews and confiscating. (Lea, p. 333; C. Roth, pp. 71-90).
In 1492 this was how Isabella could finance Columbus!
Discoverer (conquistador) Columbus planted a flag for Spain; padres
AD 1483. Martin Luther was born at Eisleben, Germany.
AD 1496-1500. MALABARESE, of Malabar, India, (Acts 2:38 Christians)
massacred by Catholic Inquisitor Alvares Cabral. (A. S. Atiya, p. 359).
AD 1499. WESTERN HEMISPHERE PLUNDERED
Columbus discovered America, true and good. But he also founded W.
planted Catholicism and the Inquisition; the conquistadors plundered and
Americas for Rome! (L. Verduin, p.266; H. Trevor-Roper, pp. 128-130; C.
p. 209; Wm. Langer, pp. 486-502).
AD 1499. Catholics burned up Jews in Old Mexico. (1528;) and in Manila
Peru (1634)! (C. Roth, p. 209).
AD 1400 to 1500
NonCatholic Christianity was generally referred to as, “ANABAPTISM,” i.e.,
AD 1400. Anabaptists were neither Catholic or protestant. (L. Verduin, pp.
It was a pre-Reformation day. There were great numbers of Oneness
Apostolic clergymen preaching Acts 2:38 doctrine which was conducive to holy living.
They advocated the “born again” experience defined in Acts two. They DID NOT hold
of reforming a dead, apostate Catholic System! (Knox, p. 135; L. Verduin, p.
They regarded the religion of Italy as the personality depicted in Rev. 17:5.
AD 1410. By studying Horst, Blunt, Knox, Thompson, Russell, Eberhardt,
etc., it is
easy to deduce that there were 30 to 40 pious Anabaptist organizations — of
both national and international status — and that most yet were of Apostolic
both Catholics and High Protestants categorized them as, Anabaptist
Anabaptist means to re-baptize; and Apostolic Pentecostals were famous for
pious act since antiquity!
AD 1420. Monarchianism yet swept the lands in spite of the Inquisition. It
was estimated that there were 4,000,000 Oneness. Blunt indicated concerning them,
Heretics.” (Blunt, p. 16). Bainton screamed, “They cover the land!”
(Bainton, p. 279).
Apostolics stated consensually, “The names of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
are improperly attributed to God,” i.e., did not indicate a Trinity. (Blunt, pp. 35-
37). By 1565,
the International Federation of Apostolic Churches — headquartered in
stated the eradication of the Trinity idea should consumate the attempted

1400 and 1573, there were 40 organizations counted. (Williams, p. 675).
become an Apostolic haven.
HISTORIANS SMEARED the ONENESS
Both historians and religionists SMEARED, name called, bad-mouthed, and
Apostolic Oneness Christians. Therefore, we cannot rely on histories — not
fully — as
pertaining to religious qualities of nonCatholics. Why? Good Bible-believers
were slurred by Luther and Zwingli, etc., as “HERETICS”, Wiedertaufer, Sacramentschwarmer, Rottengeister, Leufers, etc.” The slandered Christians believed in legal
marriage, they did eat some meats, and they were not “dualists” in the
American religious history books are full of slander!
AD 1487. The Catholic system crusaded against the pious Waldensians, and
confiscated their lands. (Blunt, p. 617).
AMERICA CLAIMED by VATICAN!
1494 AD. Pope Alexander VI, drew a line and separated Spanish and
claims. The haughty and spurious Treaty of Tordesillas, of pope Alexander
gave Spain North and South America and the Philippines, while Portugal
at least theoretically — Africa, Asia, and an eastern part of Brazil
AD 1500 to 1600
There was WORLDWIDE CHANGE in religio-politico matters. (Langer,
502). There was the Catholic conquest of the Western Hemisphere. (C.
Hayes, p. 78;
A. D. Frankforter, pp. 231-235; Laux, Appendix, p. 1). Catholicism was
the W. Hemispheric peoples.
AD 1501. Catholics started SLAVERY in the Americas.
AD 1501. Vatican bulls that claimed the Americas were: Real patronato de
Pope Alexander VI; Inter Caetera 1493, partly meant power to conquer or
natives. The Examiae devotions of 1501, was partly an INQUEST — power
to seek out
those slandered as heretics. The bull, Universalis Ecclesia of 1508, gave an
power to extend Catholic religion universally! NOTE: “Heretics, Moors,
BARRED from So. America!” (Wm. Langer, p. 496; about Negro slavery in
So. America, see p. 496).
INQUISITION WAS IN THE AMERICAS!
CHURCH-STATE IN THE AMERICAS
Few American know the above phenomena. (See: C. Roth, p. 209; Langer,
502; R. Calder, pp. 139, 145).
AD 1511. Erasmus discussed glossolalia with Luther.
AD 1517. Luther fought Tetzel over INDULGENCE.
AD 1517. Luther posted his 95 Theses. (J. Laux, p. 421).
LUTHER’S ATTEMPTED REFORMATION
Luther’s so-called REFORMATION, was mostly a fiasco, an exaggerated
story by biased historians. He fought CHURCH-STATE of Rome only to create an
equally intolerant German Luthran CHURCH-STATE system! However, he did little
AD 1521. Luther rejected BIBLICAL PENTECOSTALISM! (Knox,
pp. 134, 135).
PEASANT WAR of 1525
Influential Luther was totally responsible for the Peasant uprising, his
inflamed pamphlets urged it. (C. Hayes, p. 143; Bainton, p. 269; C. Potter, p. 331). But
Peasants threatened Luther’s rich estates, he screamed: “SMITE, SLAY,
Peasants!” (See: Hayes, p. 143; Bainton, p. 269; Potter, p. 331). He betrayed

Oneness Apostolic glossolalists! Many Huguenots becames tonguesspeakers.
AD 1500 to 1600
It was a unique century of religious history. We think of Luther, Calvin, and
as classical Reformers and see them as having established the theological
trend for the
world’s modern Protestant Trinity religions.
AD 1517. On October 31, medieval ecclesiastical institutions suffered an
change. Luther nailed his Theses on the Palace Church door. Another
against Rome’s manmade religion swept across Europe. Europe knew the
particularization that the so-called Reformation produced. Then cruel
Reformation was heard of. There was then ROMAN CATHOLIC
TRINITARIANISM as well as PROTESTANT TRINITARIANISM! One fought the other —
both combined to attempt genocide against the nonconforming Anabaptist
organizations. (R. Bainton, p. 279). Europe then became a theological battleground!
AD 1518. CONVENTICULAR CHRISTIANITY was constituted by about
30 to 40
pious Anabaptist organizations. Between 1600 and 1727 there were about
(Gregoire, Hist. des sectes religieuses, V. 326). These were the unwanted
Wiedertaufer. They were the persecuted Christians.
AD 1519. Cotez, and other Catholic conquistadores, committed genocide
Aztec, Maya, and Toltec nations! Central America was laid waste by
(R. Calder, pp. 139, 154). Mexico was turned into desert — so many were
the stake! (Roth, p. 209).
AD 1520. African slaves imported tongues-speaking into the West Indies,
Americas. (M. J. Herskovits, The Myth of the Negro Past, NY, Harper, 1941,
AD 1520-1532. GLOSSOLALIA OUTBREAK
Apostolic Pentecostalism with its integral tongues-speaking was all through
Zwingli’s Europe. (W. Horton, pp. 97-138). Thomas Munzer, in 1521,
“feeling the direct indwelling of the Holy Spirit,” with other glossolalists went to confer
(C. Hayes, p. 161). Glossolalia broke out from Appenzell to Moravia in
- (L. Verduin, p. 166). Jesus Name water baptism was greatly utilized. (Verduin, p.
181). At St.
Gall glossolalia was widely known. In revivalistic piety there was fiery
preaching. (See: G. H. Williams, pp. 133, 443). Notice how this author
slurred those who engaged in Acts 2:1-4 activity as — deranged, arsonists,
breed of Munsterites, etc!). Near Erfurt there were massive outbreaks of
rhetoric along with healings and other divine manifestations. Many of them
were beheaded. (Williams, p. 443; Wappler, Thuringen, pp. 81-85).
ZWINGLI went to PENTECOSTAL REVIVALS. (R. A. Knox, p. 389). It
was no different in Zwingli’s day than in 1985 as to the glossolalia phenomenon.

as “prophets of my time.” When one fell under the Spirit power, he thought he had

Calvin and Luther discussed the glossolalia phenomenon, though neither
tongues-speaking. Both knew of tongues-speaking at Appenzell. (M. P.
p. 73). Andreas Carlstadt and Luther, in 1525, disagreed on glossolalia;
of the tongues-speakers all around him. (R. Bainton, p. 267).
In the camps of the Socinians — of Rakow — there was Pentecostal preaching
after Acts two. Spirit tongues were common. (Hamilton, p. 74; G. H.
Williams, pp. 662,
703). Many Racovians were of the tongues movement, and many used the

no new phenomenon . . . M. Luther encountered a dispute over the formula

upheld, instead, a Triune infant baptism. (Verduin, pp. 107, 157). Those who differed
he slandered as Sacrament -schwarmer!
Luther loved his beer. He stated, “While I slept and drank my beer with dear
Melanchthon at Arnsdorf, I gave the papacy such a shock.” (See: R. A. Knox,
Luther — as it is today — knew all about Oneness Apostolic Pentecostalism
Acts 2:38. He rejected it — though it was popular throughout the Old World.
Let it be
documented here — LUTHER never RESTORED or REFORMED Oneness
Pentecostalism! He would have nothing to do with Acts 2:38 biblical
never rose spiritually above “conductual-averagism.” (L. Verduin, p. 108).
Luther admitted this. After this Luther went downhill.
AD 1521. Apostolic Organizations, as well as other Anabaptist bodies, were
geographically widespread — in France, the Netherlands, England, Scotland,
Czechoslovakia, and Hungary. (Bainton, pp. 279, 286).
THOMAS MUNZER with a body of fellow fundamentalistic clergymen —
whom were Oneness Apostolics — in 1521, went to Wittenberg. It was a

AD 1533. Calvin burned the pious Bible translator — Rev. Michael Servetus
— to death
in Geneva, in 1533, for denying Rome’s Trinity theory. Servetus died in
and Calvin murdered him in the name — Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! (See:
p. 298; L. Verduin, p. 51). Calvin martyred many true Christians, and
planned and maneuvered Servetus’ death. (Verduin, p. 51).

Catholicism, by L. Boettner, depict modern Catholicism. Mostly — the system never
changed. It is as lethal as it was in Charlemagne’s lifetime; only International
Laws restrict it.

“CONCORDAT” with Hitler’s Von Papen. Article 16 almost completely put
Catholic system in the Greater Third Reich under Hitler’s command. (W.
Documents and Readings in the Hist. of Europe since 1918, pp. 722-728. Let
read this doc.). The Vatican was implicated with Germany. Jews were
in St. Peter’s Square and shipped to Hitler’s crematoria of Auschwitz. (M.
Three Popes and the Cardinal, pp. 18-24). Hitler was an Inquisitor for the
as had been Torquemada. Auschwitz and other Death Camps in Catholic
were 20th century Auto de Fe sites! There was the “USTASHI” of

bishops — Pavelich, Stepinac, Trifa, Barbie, Rudolf, etc., have been named
(WW II) criminals in relation to antiSemitism. An estimated 100,000 Serbs

- On September 8, the Israeli President and Cabinet accused the Vatican
the Murder Cult Headquarters for Jew killers, and denounced its six (6) year

BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY — meaning The Jerusalemic (Apostolic)
CHURCH depicted in Acts two — made its way from AD 33 through every AGE into the
20th century doctrinally intact and fully operable! St. Matthew 16:18 is accurate:
“The gates of
hell had not prevailed against the Church.” St. Peter’s (basic) divine
that constitutes Acts 2:38 was fully preached in every decade! “Christ has
not left Himself without witness.” (Acts 14:17). Always some wise and Scripturally
conscious persons utilized Acts 2:1-4, 2:38 and Deuteronomy 6:4. We have seen proofs of
such phenomena in this book.
NOTE: Oneness (Pentecostal) Christianity did not originate at Topeka or
was it revived or restored there! From 1556 through 1909 — thus
independent of Topeka or Azusa — there had continued Oneness Apostolic colonies in
Moravia. (R. A.
Knox, pp. 81, 402; G. H. Williams, pp. 670-673). Organizations of
Pentecostal Oneness Apostolics, under different names, were in Russian-Turkish Armenian
regions until the sure dates of 1828, 1909. (See: Knox, p. 81, 402; D. Shakarian, pp.
There were tens of thousands of Spirit filled glossolalists. (V. Synan, p.
137). In the
19th century many had settled in Los Angeles ghettos.
1884-1904. The Rev. Alvin E. Velie, of Florida, used the Acts 2:38 Christ
and saw thousands receive glossolalia.
- There was the famed Topeka, Kansas, outpouring of the Holy Ghost.
glossolalia phenomenon became amplified. (F. J. Foster, Think it Not
Strange, p. 25).
It became widely known which was partially due to: spiritual hunger among
modern news media, and the extensive use of the automobile. Charles F.
Topeka pastor, was not the formulator of any area of Pentecostalism.
- The Rev. Howard Goss was baptized in the Name — Jesus Christ, in
(V. Synan, p. 159).
1906-1909. The AZUSA HOLY GHOST OUTPOURING gained worldwide
Tongues-speaking, technically known as glossolalia, was heard in heavenly
gushes during the Azusa revival. (Rev. Frank J. Ewart, p. 42). At Azusa there was the
tonguesspeaker — the glossolalist, also present was the unknown tongues interpreter
glossologist. For three nights, through tongues, the Spirit said, “Arise and be
in the Name of Jesus Christ.” Leaders did not obey. At times an almost
awesome quietness would seize the audience. (James Craigen, Kokomo, Indiana, 1941).
The Rev. W.
J. Seymour was the pastor at first. (F. Foster, p. 36). As F. J. Ewart put it,
“The meeting lasted for over three years, going on night and day.” (Ewart, p. 40). It
spectacular, another of the repetitious outpourings continuing from
1904-1909. There was a mighty Holy Ghost outpouring among the Welsh.
(M. P. Hamilton, p. 96).
1907-1910. Some theologians and scholars wished to suppress the
glossolalia phenomenon. However, by divine perogative the “tongues-movement” spread to
Galena, Kansas, to Orchard, Texas, to Ohio in 1908, and to Rochester, New York, etc.
1907-1908 SAMOSATENE ARMENIAN APOSTOLICS were strong in
in Moravia and armenia, as noted. (See: R. A. Knox, pp. 81, 402: G. H.
p. 677). From Armenia some immigrated and had settled in Los Angeles. (D.
Shakarian, pp. 14-24). A Russian bearing Acts 2:38 desired to preach at Azusa, but
was rejected by W. J. Seymour. Howard Goss and many others had been baptized

no innovation. (G. T. Stokes, p. 140). However, it was new to some
CONTROVERSY OVER THE CHRIST BAPTISM
1904-1912. Some Trinitarian theologians wished to suppress the biblical
baptismal formula. The Post-Apostolic Fathers, succession of popes, and
High Reformers had also attempted similar suppression. They never succeeded. The
raged. Oneness clerics showed no interest in Rome’s Platonic Trinity, their
was Christocentric.To them Christ was YHWH — and biblical Oneness
doctrine reached full-orbed expression in the Acts 2:38 formula and Deuteronomy 6:4.
- In April, there was “MOOD of EXPECTANTCY!” (V. Synan, p.
145). R. E.
McAlister was preaching and reconfirmed that, “original water baptism had
in the Name — Jesus Christ.” (Foster, p. 51). Such men as J. G. Scheppe, Dr.
G. A. Cook, F. Stewart, etc., heard this doctrine reiterated. They and many
others accepted it as biblical revelation. They saw it plainly stated in the Bible.
- April 15th, EWART PREACHED ACTS 2:38!
Rev. F. J. Ewart, near Los Angeles, conducted a tent revival and preached
Petrine ecclesiology. Glenn Cook and Ewart baptized each other according
2:38; 8:16. This meant that “Modalistic Monarchianism and
same as Sabellianism), continued from AD 33. Here were men like Noetus,
Paul of Samosata, Wolflein, etc., and they continued Upper Room doctrine.
BIBLICAL DOCTRINE WAS SLANDERED!
- It is the strangest phenomena — how that adverse clerics have ignored,
cuted, or slandered doctrinal ingredients constituting Deut. 6;4, Acts 2:1-4,
19:5! For holding monotheism pious Jews were subjected to the Spanish
and to Auschwitz. Samosatenes were persecuted by the popes and the
for holding the Christ baptismal doctrine. (Blunt, pp. 510-515). The
Assembly of God
clerics also continued that spirit of slander by calling Oneness Apostolics:
hopeless heretics, Jesus Only, and radical monotheists!” (V. Synan, p. 164;
p. 65). Theological phenomena — especially concerning name calling — have
but little in 1700 years!
- ONENESS APOSTOLIC PENTECOSTALISM swept through
(F. Foster, pp. 60, 61).
1914-1916. Oneness Revivals swept the Southern States.
- THE ASSEMBLIES of GOD REJECTED ACTS 2:38 Petrine
doctrine. Historically, this was no innovation. Waldo accomplished a similar rejection in AD
he accepted Rome’s Godhead theory. (Blunt, p. 617).
ONENESS APOSTOLIC ORGANIZATIONS
Primitive Judaic Christianity had origin at Jerusalem. The Jewish Apostles,
elders, brethren and lay members, mentioned in Acts 6:1-6; 15:1-7, 22,
constituted THE CHURCH. This Apostolic body constituted a specifically
organization. Succeeding it — and throughout each century — there have
been functionally similar organizations under different names — each adhering
Petrine ecclesiology found in Acts two. (Blunt, p. 189; O’Dea, The
Sociology of Religion, p. 37). These religious organizations arose mostly out of need —
severe stress — and religious association proved to be helpful and aided in
spread of Jersalemic (Acts 2:38) doctrine.
- On January 3, there was founded, The GENERAL ASSEMBLY of the
APOSTOLIC ASSEMBLIES. ( A. L. Clanton, United We Stand, p. 23).
- The Rev. Frazee founded The PENTECOSTAL ASSEMBLIES of the
WORLD, in Los Angeles. (Ibid., p. 27). Around 1917 the great and famous
Haywood, of Indianapolis, Indiana, became president of the PA of W. (V.
p. 95). He was among the greatest of Apostolics.
- At CHRIST CHURCH APOSTOLIC, in Royal Oak, Michigan, an
prince who possessed the Holy Ghost and advocated the Acts 2:38 water
affirmed that this religion was then current in his country and had never been
(Ross Paddock, Kalamazoo, Mich.).
- In September, the Pentecostal Church Incorporated, and The
Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ, merged and formed THE UNITED
CHURCH, Inc., located at Hazelwood, Missouri. (Ibid., pp. 128, 129).
Oneness Apostolic organization is THE ASSEMBLIES of the LORD
of Memphis, TN.
- On May 14, Israel became a NATION!
- In November, THE APOSTOLIC WORLD CHRISTIAN
of South Bend, Indiana, published a letter stating that it was constituted by
(55) Apostolic organizations, with affiliated ministers numbering 8,000.
1984, So. Bend, Ind.).
UNIVERSAL ONENESS APOSTOLIC CHRISTIANITY in the 20th
- There is a powerful Oneness Apostolic organization in China, and on
under the name — TRUE JESUS CHURCH. Also in Old Mexico, there are
bodies of Oneness Apostolic Christians, as well in Central and South
We have seen that the primitive Judaic-Christian Church, of Jerusalem, AD
its way doctrinally intact through every century into our day. The present is
some extent — indicative of the past. In relation, Oneness Apostolics have
been the same — morally and doctrinally conscientious.

About The Author
Reverend Marvin M. Arnold was born on March 24, 1921, in Neodesha,
The family moved to Buchanan, Michigan in 1937.
In June, of 1938, Arnold and his family were coverted to Apostolic
Christianity. Fascinated, after having embraced the tenets constituting Acts
38, he began to intensely study both the Holy Bible and religious history.
In 1942 he entered the US Army Air Corps, serving in Africa,
Canada, and the Azores. He preached in the Base Chapel at Dakar, Senegal
W. Africa. When discharged he entered into full time ministry, and in time
five Apostolic Churches. Simultaneously, he conducted researches in the
He entered formal theological training, in time obtaining his Bachelor and
Then recognition for his research came! Recognition for thirty-three years of
relentlessly compiling Apostolic religious history. His productions, “History of
Christian Church,” “Apostolic History Outline,” and the, “Origin And
Man,” have been put into print. For these literary works the Pioneer College,
Arkansas, awarded him a Doctor of Divinity degree. The Parkersburg Bible
Parkersburg, W. Va., presented him with a Doctor of Theology degree. He is
recognized as a historian.
To obtain accurate information Arnold traveled in the interior of Turkey. He
researched at Nicaea — the city of the famed Nicene Council of AD 325. He visited
the archaeologically interesting sites of Ephesus, Pergamos, Thyatira and Laodicea. He
along the Kizilirmak, Ceyhan, and Seyhan Rivers where the first
He visited the ancient Hittite capital, Kayseri. He saw the unique Goreme
a fairy-tale land pf exotic pyramids of stone. This famed valley has
like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, and 360 solid-stone cave churches.
Apostolics fled to
this valley from several of the big persecutions.
He also traveled in Iraq, investigating archaelogical sites such as the Tower
in the Shinarian Plain, as well as the ruins of Babylon. He researched in the
Museum, the British museum, and the University Museum of Philadelphia.
in Israel, visited Qumran, and saw Jordan and Syria. He traveled in Greece
Mars Hill and Corinth.
With an Iraqi government guide Arnold traveled to the remote,
archaeologically interesting city-state ruins of Uruk (Warka) on a remote arm of the Euphrates. He
preFlood city-state ruins of Lagash, Eridu, and Ur.
Another highlight of his life was when he met the top officials of the TRUE
CHURCH of China on November 15, 1986, at Taipei, in a great conference.
He traveled in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China in 1986.
Reverend Arnold went to the above efforts to obtain information. It is hoped
accumulated information in this outline will help all studious persons.
history has been distorted, as noted. A revisionist historian has been needed
for a long
time. This research has been partially conducted with that in mind in order to
sweep aside Catholic propaganda, falsity, and slanders. It is high time to sweep aside
the pervision of history. This writer has produced a more reliable version of
history. I endorse this book. The “APOSTOLIC HISTORY OUTLINE” has
been designed to increase your knowledge concerning Apostolic Christian history.
