What Was the first Christian Country?
What we now
know as Christianity was
developed at the First Council
of Nicea in the year 325 under
the supervision of the Roman
emperor Constantine. Until that
time, Christianity was not a
unified religion. There were the
followers of Peter in the Middle
East, the followers of Paul in
southern Europe and the Coptics
in Egypt. Constantine wanted to
unify the Roman empire under the
banner of Christianity.
It was at this Council that what we know as the Bible was translated and edited. Several books did not make it. You can find the documents which were left out of the Bible in the Nag Hammadi Library. It is available online and in print.
Google "proceedings of the First Council of Nicea". You will be amazed at how the actions of this council resemble a modern political convention. Obviously, the Council had a political agenda as well as a religious one. As the years went by, the church gained political and military power which were used in the Crusades, the Inquisition and other Christian activities.
Hope this helps.
