What Contributed to Constantine's Success

Many probably have never heard of the Roman Emperor, Claudius Constantine, who ruled the greatest empire of the ancient world for more than 30 years. He was charismatic, handsome, and some would say a great general. That is because he wiped out his enemies and their entire families. In other words, he was a brutal dictator who came to the 'purple' on the death of his father when he elevated himself to the position of Caesar.

There is much hidden of his background, however, either by historians or others who may have had ulterior motives. It was given to me to research his early history and background when commissioned to do so in order to track the origin of his religion.

This is important because without understanding where he was coming from the history of his time misses important attributes. He was first and foremost a Roman and the knowledge of their origin has been buried and for good reason, which will be explained below.

The Romans didn't suddenly appear out of nowhere but the earliest we hear of them is through people like Julius Caesar and the invasion of Italy. This is where the story usually gets murky or confused. Prior to that time, we mostly hear of the Greeks and emperor like Alexander the Great who defeated Darius III and overthrew the Persian Empire.

That's what the history books claim but how accurate is it. The Persians were the original inhabitants of Babylon, their capital city. But they were known by another name – the Amorites or Amor's.

In ancient texts they are described in horrendous terms for their brutality and overthrow of kings and nations, including Egypt. They spread their religion into those regions and that comprised the Islamic system, which still dominates the areas today.

The big question is what happened to them after Darius was defeated. They didn't fade away and disappear but re-emerged in the Mediterranean where they continued to conquer nations, kill kings and enslave people. They built a city as their capital and called it Roma (reverse Amor) and continued life as the Romans.

Constantine was, therefore, an Amorite by descent and his religion was Islam. That became the Imperial Roman Religion and when he established the Catholic Church in 325 AD, he did so on the model of his faith.

The religion helped him rule his empire as he built the Vatican as a parliament of bishops to oversee the provinces and rule them with an iron fist. He gave the church power over life and death and reintroduced Mary, the sun-god of Babylon, as the Mother of God. The Trinity was taken from the Vedic Trinity of India and Jerome, who followed later, wrote the New Testament based on a bishop Damasus's order. These contributed to Constantine's success.
