World History 5th - 13th Centuries

 

MIDDLE AGES

Decent into darkness

  • The decent into darkness continued. Worship of martyrs, relics widespread, and the Virgin Mary grows. The church became part of the political machine during this time. Compromises were made to keep political unity. Paganism, mysticism, and magic were allowed to enter the church.
  • Though there was great darkness, God never let the light of the church go fully out.
  • There was a false church as there is today.
  • Many called themselves Christians, but they had no experience with Christ. Many of them were even involved in pagan religion.
  • There was a true church made up of those who had touched God.
  • The false church used the power of the government to coerce others for their religious and monetary goals. By this time, the religious goals were no longer the goals of the living Christ, but were largely pagan or human in nature. This led to great abuses in the inquisition and many mistakes in the crusades.
  • The crusades were largely a response to the military advances of the Muslims/Turks.
  • In the mean time, the church added more and more man-made forms, rituals, and precepts while rejecting more and more of God?s precepts, orders, and patterns.
