- John iv. 13, 14.When art, science, literature, or government is revolutionized, religion always feels the shock. For, entering as a component part into the structure of society, when other members suffer, it suffers with them- and when other members are honored, it rejoices with them.Thus the conversion of Constantine, the Roman Emperor, in the fourth century, which led to the adoption of Christianity as the national religion instead of Polytheism, entirely changed the existing form and operation of the Gospel. What Rome gained, Christianity seemed to lose.
Jesus became but a species of Jove of the Capitol. The sacred ordinances were drowned in heathenish rites.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
