Don’t Be Discouraged by Secularization and the Loss of Traditional Christian Values in Society; DO Something About it! Pray with Confidence Because Divided Christians Today Most Certainly Can Together Transform our “Post-Christian” (and “Neo-Pagan”) World with the Love of Jesus as Dramatically as the Christians of the Undivided First Millennium Church Transformed the Brutal Ancient Pagan World with God’s Love, If we Recapture the Undivided Early Church’s Unity in Diversity and Together Draw from the Full Streams of Spiritual Power The Early Christians Did, by Sharing with Each Other in Love What Each of Our Divided Churches Has Best Preserved from that Undivided Early Church. In pure historical facticity, there can be absolutely no doubt the Undivided Early Church was Bible-based, Evangelical (extremely effectively so), Orthodox, and Catholic – an Undivided Early Evangelical Catholic Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches (which in the First Millennium usually called itself simply “the Catholic Church”). We need to be together again exhibiting all of these traits again if we are to repeat the most successful Christian missions of history and transform our whole society as the Undivided Early Church did (laying the Christian foundation for all the human rights and democratic freedoms we enjoy today). Empowered by both a passionate love of Scripture reading which overflowed in evangelical zeal for the greater culture and by a rich liturgical and sacramental life centred around Holy communion with Jesus in the mysterious gift of the Eucharistic (Thanksgiving) bread and wine/Body and Blood of Jesus, united in common faith which they expressed in a great diversity of ways in their different “Sister Churches” of East and West, the Christians of the First Millennium utterly transformed the world around them and built Western Civilization on the solid foundation of the Bible and the Christian Faith. It can be discouraging for Christians today to see a greater society which, though never perfect, was once informed and inspired by Christianity and built its great structures on that foundation (including the Pure Sciences and the Modern Scientific Method, and including all Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms), but is now shedding that vital Christian heritage and slowly reverting to paganism in many ways. We need to take heart, knowing that we Christians completely transformed our greater society for the better in the First Millennium, and we can absolutely do it again! The Christian people who transformed the brutal ancient pagan world with God’s Love in the First Millennium were fed spiritually, their prayers and their prayerful living witness of God’s Love in Christ Jesus, were empowered, by both the Bible, which the Early Church Fathers saturated themselves with, and by Holy Communion with Jesus in the Eucharist as the central part of a rich sacramental life. Today’s Protestant/Evangelical Christians have generally better kept up the ancient Christian love of Bible reading and evangelical zeal, while today’s Catholic and Orthodox Christians have better kept up the ancient rich Christian liturgical and sacramental life. Both are important for Christians to receive the full Divine Grace and Wisdom needed to fully empower their prayer life – see Pray! (Use the Power God Gave YOU to Change the World Through Prayer). We need to be armed and empowered by both the Bible and the Sacraments, as the Early Church was, in loving unity with each other as we enrich each other with our different ways of celebrating our common faith, as in the Undivided Early Church’s unity in diversity, if we are to fulfil our mission to transform the greater world with the love of Jesus as the Undivided Early Christians did (we Christians need to be wearing “both boxing gloves” – the Bible and the Sacraments – as we battle what Satan has wrought in our society!).
Pray to Catch the Vision as You Explore
As you explore this website, pray that you will CATCH THE VISION God has given the founder (this author) of a really possible (long-term) Christian Reunification rooted in Biblical Covenant Family Theology (which reveals God as the Trinitarian Family – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – who is Love, and who created humanity specifically to adopt it into His Family) as actually lived in the Undivided Early Church – a Biblical unity as Jesus prayed for “so that the world may believe,” our loving unity helping transform the now-secularized world once again with Jesus’ Love, as the Undivided Early Church transformed the brutal ancient pagan world in the First Millennium through its loving unity in diversity between the very different cultures of humanity which had each been renewed in Christ Jesus (Jewish, Syrian, Egyptian, Roman and Greek, the original “Pentarchy” of five Early Church Patriarchates or Catholic/Universal Church “Provinces” or “Sister Churches” – which together were a powerful symbol of the fulfilment of Biblical Prophecy through Christ, as they represented the original Jewish Christian Church of Jerusalem in the power of the Holy Spirit Who Messiah Jesus had sent at last fulfilling Old Testament Israel’s mission to bring the fallen-away “Gentile” descendants of faithful Noah back to God, through planting 4 Gentile “Sister Churches” centred in the major centre of the 4 Gentile cultures (Greek, Egyptian, Syrian and Roman) roughly to the North, South, East and West of Jerusalem). These first five cultures renewed in Jesus did not cease to be different from each other, and they celebrated their common faith in different (mutually-enriching) ways, becoming what each of these different cultures were meant to be first by transformation in His Love and then by working TOGETHER to SHOW TO THE WORLD the same Jesus in their hearts, whose Father adopted them all into ONE REDEEMED HUMAN FAMILY THE CHURCH through His Holy Spirit “of adoption” (Romans 8:15) which OVERCAME ALL HUMAN BARRIERS BETWEEN PEOPLE to unite them in the LOVE by which Jesus said the world would recognize His disciples. As a prayerful Undivided Early Church scholar, the founder is convinced that currently divided Christians can not only in the short-term display a very fruitful united front to the world by a “Unity in Love” because we all know Jesus personally and understand Him through a vast common Christian faith (see The Common Creed of Christianity) even while our formal divisions remain, but we can also in the long-term, through the power and love of the Holy Spirit who empowers us and longs to unite each one of us with Himself and with each other, even eventually overcome our historical divisions and eventually restore the formal unity in diversity of the Undivided Early Church. Through Christ and in prayer we have personal access to God the source of all life, love, and power in the universe, so “nothing is impossible for us.” That is to say, in the long-term (there is no hurry as long as we in the meantime at least display a fruitful unity in love based on vast common Christian faith), by God’s Love in our hearts we can even eventually reunify structurally into one visible Christian Church Communion of different but united “Sister Churches” (like the Undivided Early Church) with all the more powerful (and unignorable to the secularized world which wants to marginalize us) united witness to the love of Jesus, as we were united in the Undivided Early Catholic (Greek for Universal) Communion of Orthodox (non-heretical) Christian ‘Sister Churches’ of East and West (NOT JUST ROMAN), which historicially called itself the Catholic Church [still with the Pope in Rome as its Head Pastor, Successor of Peter the Greek protos [first or chief] of the Apostles in Matthew 10:2, who died in Rome; this was the Early Catholic or Universal Christian Church Communion which historically defined the basic, fundamental doctrines of Christianity (like the Trinity and the Incarnation) against many heretics in the Early Ecumenical Councils in which the early Popes were heavily involved by letters and legates (representatives) if not actually present — I simply note here that although the papacy can be considered a “divisive” doctrine because Christians are literally “split in two” over it — just over half of all Christians today still consider the Pope in Rome their “Head Pastor,” while the other just under half (including those “doctrinally liberal” Protestant churches which doubt or deny aspects of traditional, orthodox Christianity) do not so recognize the Pope — still all Christians who accept the traditional fundamentals of orthodox Christianity like the Trinity and the Incarnation of God in Christ, “fully God and fully man” — all terms not found in the Bible alone — cannot ignore the papacy, but must work out together with Catholic Christians in loving Ecumenical dialogue just how the papacy is to be properly understood and exercised as a worldwide ministry of Christian unity and orthodoxy, as the oldest Christian Churches the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church have been debating in sincere Christian love, since the bald history of the development of the papacy and the bald history of the development and permanent establishment in the Undivided Early Church of clearly defined doctrines of these fundamentals of orthodox Christian faith against many early heresies are historically bound so tightly together they cannot be separated, and the papacy remains today the main source of unity and traditional Christian orthodoxy of the 26 ancient or semi-ancient Christian Rites or Sister Churches or Patriarchates which make up today’s Catholic Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches of East and West commonly called, as in the Early, First Millennium Church, simply “the Catholic Church“]. But divided Catholic [today mostly Roman Catholic by numbers of members after the Islamic decimation of the Catholic Christian East] and non-Catholic Christians today must remember the Early Church was an Undivided Early truly Catholic/Universal (not just Roman but only 1/4 quarter Roman) Church following (as the Eastern Orthodox Churches today) the Living Sacred Tradition of the Living Body of Christ the Church as to how the Scriptures MUST be interpreted to exclude the heretical interpretations of the early heretics (and modern “doctrinally liberal” or unorthodox Protestants), a Church which was also saturated with the Bible, soaked with the love of reading the Holy Scriptures and which displayed great evangelical zeal in ways only the Protestant/Evangelical churches have done for centuries – meaning that ALL THREE of the major branches of currently divided Christianity: Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant/Evangelical, have much to learn from and be enriched by each other in order for all of us to become most like the highly Evangelical Undivided Early Catholic/Universal Christian Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches of East and West which historically transformed the brutal ancient pagan world with God’s Love, as we are NOW called together to do once again to our current “post-Christian” secularized culture which only got this way because of our Second Millennium failures and immaturity in Christian “love for one another” (John 13:35). The past sins of Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant/Evangelical Christians against the First Millennium unity of the One Church of Christ (Catholics and Orthodox by 1054 adopting an unfortunate principle of “unity equals uniformity” instead of the Undivided Early Church’s “unity in diversity,” splitting the One Church in two, a divisive principle which sadly was later followed by the Protestant Reformation which subsequently split into 35,000 distinct Protestant denominations by today) have led directly to the secularization of our formerly Christian culture and the marginalization of Christianity and its values in our society. After the Protestant Reformation and the so-called “religious wars” in the wake of it (even when these were often religious excuses for truly political wars), society no longer looked to Christianity as a stabilising and “unifying factor” in Europe, and so Christianity and its values became increasingly marginalized in our once-Christian Western culture (this effect made worse after the Enlightenment myth that religious faith is somehow opposed to reason and science, even though the modern scientific method developed nowhere on Earth but in Christian Europe, from a specifically Judeo-Christian worldview and philosophical foundation – see The Judeo-Christian Roots of Science). Thus it behooves all Christians to consider what we can do now to correct the sad state of our society which is our fault because we in the past failed to show the non-Christian world the love that Christians have for one another by which Jesus said the world would know that we are His disciples, and by which those in the world would be drawn into the Eternal Divine Trinitarian Family Life of Love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Catholic Church has taken the lead here by since Vatican II seriously considering the genuine Christian strengths, preserved from the Undivided Early Catholic Church, of the Orthodox and Protestant/Evangelical branches of Christianity, and incorporating them into its official and dogmatic ecclesiology, the Catholic Church’s mature self-reflection on just what the Church is and is meant to be in Christ, though this official Vatican II ecclesiology or doctrine of the Church, being recent, has not yet filtered down thoroughly into the minds and hearts of the “average Catholic,” and to do so fully will require more time and education (such as that provided on this website) and more Ecumenical engagements between Catholic and non-Catholic Christians (who all once formally belonged to the Catholic Church Communion, before their current churches were separated from it at some point in history, each of these churches preserving something important from the Undivided Early Catholic Church which can and should still enrich the Catholic Communion of today). The founder‘s Vision, as an Undivided Early Church scholar and as a Catholic Christian in full communion with the Pope in Rome but not a Roman Catholic Christian (rather belonging to one of the Eastern Rites or Sister Churches within the Catholic Communion, as did half the Saints and Doctors of the Early Church who were not Roman but Eastern Catholic (and Orthodox) Christians; a Sister Church that is fully Catholic yet which shares virtually identical Eastern liturgy and worship customs with the Eastern Orthodox Churches who were also once part of the Undivided First Millennium Catholic Church’s unity in diversity), and as a Christian who was first introduced to Jesus Christ within the Protestant and Evangelical Churches and there learned to know the Bible and love to read it (as did the Early Church Fathers) and there learned to love to share the wonderful life-transforming Christian faith (to “evangelize”) — in short, the founder’s Vision as a Christian who has been greatly enriched in his relationship with God by his personal contact with all three of the major branches of divided Christianity — is that all Christians can indeed by working together restore the powerful and society-transforming unity in diversity of the Undivided Early Church (the Undivided Early Evangelical Catholic Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches) through both prayer and education: 1) through respecting and using the POWER of our prayers because we are members of the very Body of Christ Himself (see Pray!); and 2) through education (such as that provided in the books and materials published on this website) helping us all see how Covenant Family Theology (a Biblical and Systematic Theology built on the work of the founder’s former professor, the famous Biblical Theologian Scott Hahn, himself also a Catholic Christian benefitting greatly from his Protestant background; a Biblical and Systematic Theology which will revolutionize your Bible reading, and make the Scriptures come alive as your Family History) makes plain the “golden threads,” the strong links between: 1. the very nature of God the Holy Trinity of Love who is the primordial Trinitarian Family (Father, Son and Holy Spirit – parenthood, childhood, and the fruitful love which binds them in one Godhead) and 2. the full Biblical history in both Testaments in which God the Trinitarian Family of Love bound Himself in love to humanity when He patiently raised humanity through six Biblical adoptive (family-making) Covenants (with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus Christ) culminating in the current New Covenant Christian Church which is preparing us for the 7th, final, Eternal Family Covenant of the Kingdom of Heaven with its “new heavens and new earth;” and 3. Christian history since the Biblical record ended, which continues the same Biblical patterns of God slowly and patiently raising His latest Covenant Family to only gradually ever-greater maturity in love, a back-and-forth process in which the New Covenant Family (as the Old in the brief United Kingdom of Israel) had initial success in the Undivided Early Church but lost it due to immaturity in love which (as in the 0lder Covenants) led to divisions which were expected by God the Father in His divinely patient process of raising His Covenant children to full maturity in love (therefore our current, scandalous, divisions as Christians, which presently hamper our effectiveness in building God’s Family and Kingdom because when we are divided the world then cannot see our Christian “love for one another” which Jesus said was the way people would recognize His disciples; our divisions which began long in the past when we were more immature in love, were expected by God as part of His process of patiently raising us as His family towards our full maturity in love, such that we need not overly regret them nor dwell on them, though we most definitely need to “grow up” and move beyond them); and 4. makes plain how the 21st Ecumenical Council (Vatican II)’s little-known but exceptional ecclesiology (understanding of the Church) based on the Undivided Early Church’s lived reality LAID THE GROUNDWORK for a future genuine and fruitful Church reunification as Jesus prayed for “so that the world may believe,” although both Catholic Christians and non-Catholic Christians (those no longer within the Catholic (Universal) Christian Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches of East and West which in the Undivided Early Church called itself simply the Catholic Church) need to really learn this Early Church ecclesiology of “unity in diversity” before this Council can bear the full fruit of reunification. Please note that this wonderful Vatican II ecclesiology itself, which captures the lived reality of the Undivided First Millennium Church, is not simply a Catholic creation but was developed by the Vatican II Council Fathers (not only majority Roman Catholic overseers/bishops but also Eastern Catholic overseers/bishops within the truly Catholic [Greek for Universal, not just Roman] Church Communion of East and West) with the aid of Eastern Orthodox and (Western) Protestant/Evangelical perspectives, considering what things each may have preserved better from the Undivided Early Church which belong in the Catholic Communion. Vatican II (1962-65) took place in the context of a fruitful formal “Dialogue of Love” between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches begun earlier, in 1958, which since 1982 has very fruitfully clarified and developed Vatican II’s ecclesiology towards healing the First “Great Schism” of Christianity, between the Catholic and Orthodox Church Communions, which set the bad precedent and bad tone (“unity equals uniformity”) for the later Second Millennium Church divisions, especially the Protestant Reformation (more on this East/West dialogue below in the following paragraph), and it also took into serious consideration the legitimate concerns of the Protestant Reformation (many Protestant representatives attending Vatican II as observers by Catholic Church invitation). More than this, the premier Protestant Early Church scholar of the 19th Century, John Henry Newman, who had personal experience in all the major forms of Protestant Christianity, not just Anglicanism, took with him into the Catholic Church the many benefits of his Protestant experience (especially the fact that the Protestant Churches have better preserved the Undivided Early Church’s love of the Bible and Bible reading, and evangelical zeal, than the Catholic and Orthodox Churches of his time and after have. The Early Church Fathers who Catholic and Orthodox Christians revere as Saints and Doctors loved the Bible and were saturated with it in ways only Protestant Christians have been for centuries, though this is changing since Vatican II). Newman became Catholic and then became “Cardinal Newman,” and, more recently, “Blessed Cardinal Newman,” well on his way to being canonized as a Catholic Saint (and Doctor), and he has been sometimes called “the Father of Vatican II” because his exceptional theology and unparalleled Early Church knowledge was incorporated into Vatican II’s Dogmatic Constitutions and general teaching in a way no other scholar and theologian’s was. While still a Protestant Newman predicted the crisis within Protestantism of widespread “doctrinal liberalism” and falling into unorthodoxy, often repeating the errors of the Early Church heretics (who he had studied in an unparalleled way), which has actually happened since within Protestantism, the largest streams of the oldest and largest Protestant denominations in fact since becoming “doctrinally liberal,” doubting or denying essentials of traditional, orthodox Christian faith like the Divinity of Jesus, as Newman predicted would happen because of certain things from the Undivided Early Church which were lost in the Protestant Reformation which are preserved in the Catholic Church Communion (almost all of them also in the Orthodox Church Communion) – even though the Protestant churches did indeed better preserve the Undivided Early Church’s love of Scripture and Bible reading, and Newman, through his great contributions to Vatican II, has helped the beginning of the restoration of this Early Church characteristic within the huge Catholic Church (It should be clear from this that each of the major branches of Christianity has better preserved certain aspects and characteristics of the Undivided Early Church, and thus we need to learn from each other if any of us are to be all we were meant to be, and restore what was lost since the First Millennium when the Undivided Church transformed the whole ancient pagan world with the love of Jesus. We can and must do it again! See PRO-LIFE 2.0 for one way how!). Newman’s personal solution to this great problem within Protestantism he predicted which has since actually happened was to become Catholic himself, but both before and after doing so, he saw that the Catholic Church of his time still needed much reform if it was to truly and effectively “reform” itself to be the most like the Undivided Early Church which he, as likely the greatest Early Church scholar in history, knew better than anyone else. Thus, as a Catholic Christian, he left a superb body of teaching to help the Catholic Church become all it once was and all it was meant to be. And the Catholic Church embraced his teaching in his own lifetime by making him a Cardinal, one of the select few Catholic overseers/bishops who advise and elect the Pope. After his death, the Catholic Church further embraced his teaching, so much enriched by his Protestant upbringing, by declaring him “Venerable,” the first step to being acknowledged as a Catholic Saint, and more recently the Catholic Church further progressed him towards this by declaring him “Blessed” Cardinal John Henry Newman. The Catholic and Protestant Churches have been growing gradually closer together since the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation of the 16th Century. The Catholic Church has been giving ever greater primacy to the Bible because of the legitmate Protestant emphasis on Scripture which echoes the Early Church’s emphasis on and constant use of Scripture by the Early Church Fathers. Similarly the Protestant Churches, because of the massive problem of the gradual loss of even basic Christian orthodoxy like the Divinity of Jesus within the oldest and largest Protestant “mainline” denominations (as Newman predicted), has become more open to accepting the need to also acknowledge some form of the Living Sacred Tradition of the Life of the Holy Spirit Jesus promised guiding the Church’s interpretation of the Bible through the Centuries (see Tradition is the Bride of Christ Dancing with Him Throughout History), since basic Christian orthodoxy has been constantly preserved in the Catholic and Orthodox Churches which do not have the problem of “doctrinally liberal” unorthodoxy which Protestantism has, due to what Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy have better preserved from the Undivided Early Church (though they may have a more pronounced problem of many “nominal” members than Evangelical Protestantism has – once again, we can and should share with each other from our various strengths). Helping to cement this “coming together” of approaches, it is largely because of Newman that the differences which separate (Conservative/Evangelical) Protestant and Catholic Christians are today nowhere near what they seemed to be in the 16th Century (See Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman and How His Protestant Background Enriched the Catholic Church with Vatican II). Fortunately, and extremely significantly for the future reestablishment of the Undivided Early Church’s ideal, at the highest levels (though it may not have yet trickled down to “the grassroots” level), the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church, the two oldest and largest Christian Church Communions, in their official Theological Dialogue since 1982 (in the context of their official Dialogue of Love since 1958 which predated and provided the Ecumenical context for Vatican II), have already made tremendous progress in beautifully clarifying and developing Vatican II’s ecclesiology, specifically towards the purpose of eventually restoring full Christian communion with each other in one Church as in the First Millennium. As Blessed Pope John Paul II indicated to Eastern Orthdoox Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios, since the early Second Millennium “Great Schism” between their two Churches set the bad precedent and bad tone (“unity equals uniformity”) for the many later Christian divisions of the Second Millennium, the healing of this first “Great Schism” of Christianity should set a good precedent and good tone (unity in diversity) for the healing of the later Christian schisms (see The First “Great Schism” of Christianity and its Precedent in Division and in Healing). While there is a ways to go yet, the very promising progress that has already been made really should engender hope in a really possible (long-term) Christian Reunification, as Jesus prayed for “so that the world may believe.” The vision of the Founder is a “Grand Synthesis” in which Covenant Family Theology (which will revolutionize your Bible reading by making it clearly your family’s album) demonstrates that from the beginning God intended for His Church Family to display a beautiful mutually enriching unity in diversity as actually existed in the Undivided Early Church but was lost due to immaturity in love: the Bible shows God intended a “unity in plurality,” “unity in multiplicity” as recently defined in Vatican II’s ecclesiology as clarified and developed in the official Catholic/Orthodox Dialogue, which finally gives us the tools to show our beloved Father God that we His children have matured in love and are now capable of starting to really “be one — so that the world may believe,” as Jesus prayed for us. The Founder is currently working on his Doctoral Thesis Project specifically hoping to help aid the healing of the first “Great Schism” of Christianity, which will help in the healing of all the later schisms which followed its bad precedent of “unity equals uniformity.” It was initially provisionally entitled “Covenant Family Theology” as a Broad Synthesis for Understanding the Trinity, the Bible and the Church Which Paves the Way for Christian Unity in Diversity “So That the World May Believe,” but this was too broad a topic for only one doctoral dissertation. It was later narrowed to The History of the Catholic (Universal) Communion of Orthodox Christian Sister Churches of East and West (Commonly Called Simply the Catholic Church in the First Millennium): An Ecumenical Investigation of Unity in Diversity, and recently went by a lengthy descriptive provisional title Mother and Sisters – The Development and Use of Feminine Terms for the Particular Local and Regional Churches and the Universal Church as Part of the Biblical Heavenly-and-Earthly Mystery of the Church as the Bride of Christ, Expressing the Mystery of Family Communion with Christ and Between Christians in both the Heavenly Mother Church and the Earthly Universal (Catholic) Church and the Particular Local and Regional “Sister” Churches Which Comprise It: Fruitful Definitions and Implications of the Terms “Mother Church” and “Sister Churches” for Ecumenical Dialogue Today. However much progress is made in official ecumenical dialogues between the best and brightest theologians and other leaders of each Church, the Christian reunification which will return to Christ’s Church the power of the united witness of Jesus’ Love it had in the First Millennium, a powerful witness which transformed the brutal ancient pagan world with Jesus’ Love, a power which can and will transform our modern secularized society which is slipping back into paganism, will not happen until such reunification in fulfilment of Jesus’ prayer is truly desired even at the “grassroots” level of the common believer of the currently divided Churches and prayed for, using the great power God gave us, also at this level. So many Christians are so used to the divisions, and they seem so entrenched, that they do not even truly desire nor pray for reunification “so that the world may believe.” But we have access to God the source of all love and power in the universe. So we should never give up! Christian Unity in Diversity Central exists to help remind all Christians that we had this wonderful unity in diversity once and we transformed the world for our Beloved Jesus. Christian Unity in Diversity Central exists to share with all Christians the above Vision, that we truly can restore our unity and with the restored power of that united witness of Jesus’ Love because we show the world that we indeed “have love for one another” (John 13:35), we can indeed transform the whole world with Jesus’ Love once again! So CATCH THE VISION and pray for it “So That the World May Believe.” Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brothers to dwell together in unity!
