#303 – A History of the Catholic Church – The Most Dangerous Foe

marcionandjohn

Concluding our series on early Christian heresies with Marcionism, a movement that became so popular that some estimates are that half of the Christians in the Eastern half of the Roman Empire will be supporters of Marcion of Sinope and his views on Old Testament.

Indeed, Marcion’s condemnation of the Old Testament and the strength of Marcion will be one of the key reasons for the Christian Church to begin the process of defining the faith in what will become the New Testament.
