|The Roman Empire Greatly Influenced Christianity At a time when political power and religious power were in conflict, the Roman Empire chose to join with the religion (Christianity) that presented the greatest challange to the unity of the empire. The result of this union was the Roman Catholic Church. As was the historical tradition of Rome, when the Empire adopted a new religion it was imperative that they maintained the prestige of the Empire by making the new religion 'Roman'. In doing so, did they compromise some of the teachings of Christ? Was there more emphasis put on Roman Tradition than true Christian Conversion? Much of the erroneous teaching and practices of the Romans survived both the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. Still today biblical scholars don't see, or choose to ignore, the need follow God's Word. Why? We must learn to follow God's Word before the teachings of man.|
