Includes the Life of Constantine, who came to power in ruthless fashion and orchestrated the Council. He approved Christianity in 313 for the entire Roman Empire after murderous plots brought him to power. This included the elimination of close relatives who might otherwise challenge his crown. This was the first major council in Christendom, taking place in A.D. 325. It endorsed some erroneous concepts that were ultimately accepted after those in opposition were forced to leave the Council. Reveals how Christianity as we know it today was created during a political power struggle, and some important facets of the religion were created to serve political agendas rather than the truth.
