Time has kept moving on. The Roman Christian Church, so they like to refer to themselves as, has now secured its place as head of the church now takes control of the state. In so doing they have now made of themselves the man of sin that the bible teaches us about. And in fact the antichrist that was even then appearing upon the scene.
Now they openly used the arm of the state to force, coerce, and persecute those who would not believe what they imparted as bible truth and follow them. The Popes even fashioned themselves into Christ Himself.
