On the conversion of the European tribes to Christianity the ancient pagan worship was by no means incontinently abandoned. So wholesale had been the conversion of many peoples, whose chiefs or rulers had accepted the new faith on their behalf in a summary manner, that it would be absurd to suppose that any, general acquiescence in the new gospel immediately took place. Indeed, the old beliefs lurked in many neighbourhoods, and even a renaissance of some of them occurred in more than one area. Little by little, however, the Church succeeded in rooting out the public worship of the old pagan deities, but it found it quite impossible to effect an entire reversion of pagan ways, and in the end compromised by exalting the ancient deities to the position of saints in its calendar, either officially, or by usage. In the popular mind, however, these remained as the fairies of woodland and stream, whose worship in a broken-down form still flourished at wayside wells and forest shrines. The Matres, or Mother gods, particularly those of Celtic France and Ireland, the former of which had come to be Romanized, became the bonnes dames of folklore, while the dusii and pilosi, or hairy house-sprites, were so commonly paid tribute that the Church introduced a special question concerning them into its catechism of persons suspected of pagan practice. Nevertheless, the Roman Church, at a somewhat later era, reversed its older and more catholic policy, and sternly set its face against the cultus of paganism in Europe, stigmatizing the several kinds of spirits and derelict gods who were the objects of its worship as demons and devils, whom mankind must eschew with the most pious care if it were to avoid damnation.

No follower of Christ knew the shape of the earth. For many centuries this great Peasant of Palestine has been worshiped as God. Millions and millions have given their lives to his service. The wealth of the world was lavished on his shrines. His name carried consolation to the diseased and dying. His name dispelled the darkness of death, and filled the dungeon with light. His name gave courage to the martyr, and in the midst of fire, with shriveling lips the sufferer uttered it again and again. The outcasts, the deserted, the fallen, felt that Christ was their friend, felt that he knew their sorrows and pitied their sufferings. All this is true, and if it were all, how beautiful, how touching, how glorious it would be. But it is not all. There is another side. In his name millions and millions of men and women have been imprisoned, tortured and killed. In his name millions and millions have been enslaved. In his name the thinkers, the investigators, have been branded as criminals, and his followers have shed the blood of the wisest and best. In his name the progress of many nations was stayed for a thousand years. In his gospel was found the dogma of eternal pain, and his words added an infinite horror to death. His gospel filled the world with hatred and revenge; made intellectual honesty a crime; made happiness here the road to hell, denounced love as base and bestial, canonized credulity, crowned bigotry and destroyed the liberty of man. It would have been far better had the New Testament never been written - far better had the theological Christ never lived. Had the writers of the Testament been regarded as uninspired, had Christ been thought of only as a man, had the good been accepted and the absurd, the impossible, and the revengeful thrown away, mankind would have escaped the wars, the tortures, the scaffolds, the dungeons, the agony and tears, the crimes and sorrows of a thousand years.

The doctrine of Demetrius God has a plan for every period of time, believers of every age are not moving by any formal organizational truth, but rather by the leading of the holy-ghost. If the church has reached her final point we would have surely not need of any leading of the the holy-spirit. The children of israel in the desert were led by the pilar of cloud the day and the pilar of fire the night until they reached the promise land, each time the pilar moves , the peoples had to move at the same time, and when it stop people had to stop, so it is with the second exodus where God is dealing with the gentile church from the apostoles age , to the dark ages the great apostasy came upon the church and many manuscripts were burned by the Catholic church and many true Christian were killed by the church(RCC). Why is it that the Rcc killed the true believer? It is because they wanted to preserve their creeds and dogmas, preserve self from moving forward has alway been the game of the carnal church, once we got something we push God outside of His own church and we organized ourselves around some misinterpretation conception of what the messenger said we fight against whosoever is not following our religious trend, the carnal church can not act contrary that's her nature she is a conservative, need to preserve her organizational statut, her group, her letter doctrine and by this Christ cannot use her anymore because she praticing the doctrine of Demetrius, to preserve what we have as a group , as a people, refuse the transformation for social profits. A lot of our ministers today pratice the doctrine of Demetrius, they are trying to preserve themselves(the church) from the truth for social profits. Christ said my sheeps know my voice and a stranger they will not follow, today are you listening to God voice or you are listening to the doctrine of Demetrius?we all ought to have the holy ghost to lead us in all the truth. It is a must for you and I. Acts 19:24-27 KJV For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen; [25] Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth. [26] Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands: [27] So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.
