Paganism Part 3


The death knell for the early Christian church came disguised as a blessing, it was the ‘conversion’ of the Roman Emperor Constantine. In A.D. 312 he and Maxentius were locked in mortal battle for the throne of Rome.

“Constantine alarmed that Maxentius was a master of magical arts, prayed to the ‘supreme god’ for help. To Constantine the supreme god was Mithras, the Persian sun god.
