The fact that the roman catolic church and the asian sister churches together brought the christia gospel together with bibles into to whole world is the fulmilment of Mat. 24, 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Only after Jehovas witnesses and adventists and their prostestant teachers learned the gosple of jesus from missionaries they founded a sect and decided to explain the kingdom as a "humanlike" governement, a government like all government on earth but a little bit more perfect, so they tried to steal the success of the catolic preaching work and to make their own preaching work appearing the only one existing. Now even Splane admits that the catolic church was the only church that brought the gospel to the whole world as Jesus and the holy spirit wanted. AAhaaa! Splane come back to the mother church, we will forgive you.
It is not possible, as I always say, that Jesus and the holy spirit would have been 2000 years inactive and
that Jesus came to earth and then 2000 years people would have to live in spiritual darkness only to wait for JT Russell or the FDS class 1919? Stupid idea. Throught the catolic evangelisation the christian faith influenced the whole world. It is not true that catolic priests did not know the pospel as Splan indicates. For the catolic service they produced evangeliaries a collections of gospel passages which were read in the service the bible passages and sermons are regulated https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangeliary
Althought the christian faith influence so many things, the problem was that the christian faith did never really play the main role in the life of people and in some epoches church leaders that new the bible were not willing to live according to the gospel, some like Francis of Assisi wanted to live according to the gospel. But he did not leave the church, because there is only one christ and only one church. The last 2000 years were not easy for the church, for the missionaries, but God knew what risk, but the bible survived, but the church survived. and in the underground christianity is the basis of our western culture. Jesus christ is God and he is strong enought to stand all the difficult times.
Hundred of millions of christians in asia, turkey, africa, were forced to convert to islam or were killed while
the islam spread in asia.
