He put a stop to the persecutions against the Christians and made Christianity the official religion of the ****Roman Empire . He legalized Christianity and the Christians came out of hiding. Temples **** and churches were built for them. The pagan way of worship, like the worshipping of gods and idols, was incorporated into the Christian faith. This was the birth of Catholicism. **
This right here tells you that he’s dead wrong because the Catholic Church already existed long before Constantine was born, and the doctrines of the faith did not change after the Edit of Tolerance.
That “preacher” cannot refute the historical facts, like this quote from the letter of St. Ignatius of Antioch to the church at Smyrna that was written in about 110 AD, some 200+ years BEFORE Constantine.
CHAP. VIII.–LET NOTHING BE DONE WITHOUT THE BISHOP.
See that ye all follow the bishop, even as Christ Jesus does the Father, and the presbytery as ye would the apostles. Do ye also reverence the deacons, as those that carry out [through their office] the appointment of God. Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper(18) Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful without the bishop either to baptize or to celebrate a love-feast; but whatsoever he shall approve of, that is also pleasing to God, so that everything that is done may be secure and valid.(2) even as where Christ is, there does all the heavenly host stand by, waiting upon Him as the Chief Captain of the Lord’s might, and the Governor of every intelligent nature. It is not lawful without the bishop either to baptize, or to offer, or to present sacrifice, or to celebrate a love-feast.(1) But that which seems good to him, is also well-pleasing to God, that everything ye do may be secure and valid.
Here’s a link to a very good article that refutes his propaganda. Is Catholicism Pagan?
