【The Story of the Kingdom】
(Web page 8/37)
When Jesus prayed in Gethsemane, as his disciples fell asleep, no men could contact the Father of Jesus. The apostles' conscious stratum of the spiritual world could contact Jesus' but could not reach above his. As a result, Jesus formed one god world. Jesus was bound by human thoughts and feelings named faith. The time was the zenith of the Roman Empire. After this prosperity continued for a while, as if Roman society entered a reflection time, humans were getting introspective. From that time, those who claimed Jesus' apostles started forming Christianity. Judaism also carried the arrangement of the sacred book and others forward to oppose this new power. Soon after Constantine won in the battle for the throne in 312 with his faith in the revelation from Jesus, the situation changed. The Edict of Milan was promulgated in 313 and Christianity that had been prosecuted was authorized. In 325 the First Council of Nicaea was held. In 330 Constantine moved the capital of the Roman Empire to Byzantium, which is Istanbul today. This Constantineﾕs request created the Holy Scriptures of Christianity. That was the Bible. At that time, Christian church performed a feat of taking over the scriptures of Judaists who opposed Christianity. It was an unimaginable political decision for the earliest group who believed in Jesus. The Father of Jesus, with the establishment of the Bible, became the leading role in the story of the Almighty God who created the universe, Adam and Eve, was the Lord of Abraham, taught Moses the Ten Commandments, anointed David, sent Jesus to the ground and, with his blood, atoned for all humansﾕ sin. After it was established that the doctrine of the Trinity was the orthodoxy at the First Council of Constantinople in 381, other doctrines became heresy. That was the Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Soon the church monopolized the knowledge and the God. Humans were the same as sheep and they were the shepherd's. Good things were God's act, and bad things were devil's act. Human intellectual level declined so badly that the aqueduct built in Roman period, in the farm village of medieval France, was believed to be devilﾕs architecture. "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." , which Jesus said, was forgotten and everything in the human world also belonged to God. The will to make one God seemed to be realized like this in the human world. The shrines and temples of deities were destroyed to erase the past and Christian churches were built on them. The deities were sealed one after another. That was possible with the power of human thoughts and feelings. Even when humans who were wakemitama (the child-spirit) of deities became kamigakari (trance state), it was devil's act.
