Myths of the Council of Nicaea


In these five videos, I explore and debunk some of the common myths surrounding the Council of Nicaea, as propagated by books like The Da Vinci Code, movies like Zeitgeist, and groups like the Jehovah's Witnesses and the Mormons. The myths I address in these videos are:

1. Constantine headed the Council and/or dictated its decrees.
2. Nicaea determined the canon of the New Testament and had other books destroyed.
3. The Bishops at Nicaea betrayed the true Christian Faith.
4. Constantine the Great was a pagan when he convoked and attended the Council of Nicaea.
5. The Arians were the true Christians, the "Orthodox" were the heretics.
6. The Council of Nicaea invented the Divinity of Christ.
7. After Nicaea, the Church was used as a tool for the political power of Rome, justifying its wars and atrocities.

Well, its true about the fall of the old western Roman Empire but you flim shows Justinian and Italy and certain parts of Italy was rule by the Byzantines again from 561 until 700. And Justinian wrote letters to Pope John III and Pope John III wrote letters to Justinian. These letters are published in a collection of the Justinian Law Code. The Bishop of Rome still had influence in Constaninople even when the Germans controled Italy. Also, Justinian forced Pope Vigilius to agree with him on comdemming the three chapters to get Africian and Italain and other western Bishops to agree to his religious schemes. This shows that the pope was still important to the Roman Empire.
