In accordance with prophecy, Jesus set up His eternal kingdom. But before long, Satan influenced men to start making changes in the structure of Christ’s kingdom, the church. These changes took the form of doctrines, practices, and structures that were foreign to the Bible. The result was a new church—the Catholic Church—in competition with Jesus’ kingdom.
This book shows the path of the Catholic apostasy, but also shows the groups which still followed the truth—though they were labeled as heretics by the Catholics—the people within Catholicism who tried to bring them more in line with the Bible, and finally, many of the individuals who decided to start fresh by restoring New Testament Christianity.
