|Acts 4:32 - 5:11: "All the
believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that
any of their possessions was their own, but they shared
everything they had. ...And God’s grace was so powerfully at
work in them all that there were no needy persons among
them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses
sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at
the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had
Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.
Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? (...)” When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened.(...)
About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?” “Yes,” she said, “that is the price.” Peter said to her, “How could you conspire to test the Spirit of the Lord? Listen! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”At that moment she fell down at his feet and died.
In Classical Antiquity : In 342 (Codex
Theodosianus, 9, 7, 3,) the first law was enacted in
Milan regarding passive homosexuals. Harsher penalties
were introduced by Theodosius I in a law addressed to the
prefect of Rome in 390, with execution by burning (...).
This law was inserted in the Theodosian Code of
438 (9, 7, 6), but substantially modified and with a wider
scope. The new compilation condemned to burning all
passive homosexuals without distinction. With the Emperor
Justinian the legislation was broadened; every kind of
homosexuality was repeatedly condemned with the death
From Wikipedia: "Justinian's law code then served as the basis for most European countries' laws against homosexuals for the next 1400 years. Homosexual behavior, called sodomy, was considered a capital crime, and thousands of homosexual men were executed across Europe during waves of persecution in these centuries."
"Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels both to some level expressed homophobia in their public and private writings "
"In the 1930s under Joseph Stalin, homosexuality and abortion were recriminalised in the nation. Article 121 explicitly criminalised male same-sex intercourse and with five years of hard prison labor as a penalty(...) Homosexuals were sometimes denied membership or expelled from communist parties across the globe during the 20th Century, as most communist parties followed the social precedents set by the USSR. Today, however, nearly all communist parties accept homosexuals and support the LGBT rights movement.
Homosexuality was decriminalized in China in 1997 and was removed as a mental illness in 2002"

in his heart" (Matthew 5:28) nor committing any other
horrible crime (such as, for example, the crime to consider
"entering a religious community of a stricter observance"

similar crimes are mentioned in the rest of her diary, such
as (71) the crime of offering someone flowers because of a
"subtle attachment" for this person) - any unrepentful

I started large-scale religious persecution aimed at
eradication of all non-christian religions and destruction
of all temples. This is a Christian innovation (except
it was inspired by Judaism, of course). Indeed, before that,
the Roman empire only made limited persecutions of the
Christians, with no purpose to exterminate them;these were
justified by the threat posed by Christianity to the Roman
society, fear that turned out to be fully justified. (Thus
the apologetic writings on "martyrs", as if Christians were
specially targetted, is exaggerated: as if even being
"persecuted" ever was an evidence of mental sanity or of
divine infallibility ; but even if it was, it would rather
plead for the Pagagn religions and antic Roman culture
instead; anyway for the defense of freedoms and
civilization, I do think that in retrospective the
extermination of the minority of Christians would have been
fully justified for the sake of the larger culture and
civilization of that time; or better, just expel them to visit

Since the final Great Schism between Catholics and Orthodox in 1054 when the Pope excommunicated the Patriarch, the Catholic Church maintained the Western Europe, through its control and censorship of information, in ignorance and disdain towards the higher economic and cultural prosperity of the Eastern Roman Empire where the allowance of financial transactions (no ban on usury) and the freedom of expression in non-theological issues allowed for remains of antic intellectual heritage of Antiquity to keep thriving and developing (with its wealth that also had other causes) until the fall of Constantinople in 1453 by Muslim conquerors. While this fall caused Eastern intellectuals to take refuge in Western Europe and contribute to start Renaissance there, usual Western history textbooks still now remain largely unthankful to the now dead Eastern Roman empire for this gift.

because human reason has limits and cannot find God, and
these limits are uniform between all humans. Therefore, the
