Catechumen : survive the Roman Wrath


Total votes: 38

Rome had long been a land of persecution towards the minorities, particularly that of the Christian minority. This persecution reached its epitome under the rule of Cesar Nero. The Christians had little that they could do against the Roman government, but to have faith in God, and pray.
Christian persecution had escalated until Roman spies would infiltrate the Christian churches, bringing the Roman authorities with them. A darkness was settling over Christianity, evil in nature, that threatened to destroy the Christian religion only a few centuries after Christ founded it at the cross.
To defend themselves, Christians created a recruitment policy that required brothers seeking the Lord to study the Word for a year before undergoing babtism and partaking in communion. During this time, Christians in training were known as 'Catechumen.'
