Publisher's Summary

The Ancient Church Fathers reveals the disciples of the 12 apostles and what they taught, from their own writings. It documents that the same doctrine was faithfully transmitted to their descendants in the first few centuries. It also describes where, when, and by whom, the doctrines began to change. 

The Ancient Church Fathers makes it very easy to know for sure what the complete teachings of Jesus and the twelve apostles were. You will learn, from their own writings, what the first century disciples taught about the various doctrines that divide our church today. You will learn what was discussed at the Seven General Councils and why. You will learn about the cults and cult leaders who began to change doctrine and spread their heresy. And you will learn how those heresies became the standard teaching in the medieval church. 

A partial list of doctrines the ancient church discussed include: abortion, animal sacrifices, Antichrist, Arminianism bible or tradition Calvinism, circumcision, deity of Jesus Christ, demons, euthanasia, evolution, false gospels, false prophets, foreknowledge, free will, Gnostic cults, homosexuality, idolatry, Islam, Israel's return, Jewish food, laws, Mary's virginity, Mary's assumption, meditation, Nicolaitans, paganism, predestination, premillennialism, purgatory, psychology, Reincarnation, replacement theology, Roman Catholicism, the Sabbath, salvation, schism of Nepos, sin, the soul, spiritual gifts, transubstantiation, yoga, and women in ministry.

This book is brought to you by Biblefacts Ministries and biblefacts.org.

Anti Catholic narrative

It's informative but misleading and is supremely anti Catholic. I'm not sure what this guy is doing but dividing the church more.

Pastors: Alert!

By and large, American pastors have utterly failed to teach about the early church fathers ( or church history in general) to their flocks on Sunday mornings. Thus they have helped rip out the intellectual guts from the Christian body of Christ, bored smart people nearly to death, and attracted fewer and fewer of the unsaved to their pews.

Pastors continue to preach endlessly about the gospel (the milk of the word) over and over again each Sunday to the very same people who are already saved. Thereby they make Christianity boring. They numb the mind. They drive thinking people away from the church and don’t give enough credit to the abilities of common people.

Pastors should be teaching the kind of material found in this book so believers can see what the disciples of the Apostles said to their disciples! It will excite their minds.

In this book readers will learn what the earliest believers connected to the Apostles brought into church history. You can learn to avoid doctrine mistakes that are very old but are still rampant today even though the Bible is spread abundantly throughout the earth.

Johnson reads from the writings the earliest Christians who were mentored by the disciples of the Apostles! This blows my mind.

I believe churches would grow as unbelievers come to hear these kinds of studies. Instead pastors have embarrassing fads—purpose this and driven that.

Pastors continually feed pablum as the main dish. They provide little to feast upon. It’s tragic.

Along with gutting Christian history from our churches, mainline churches fail to teach a robust method of witnessing. And they need to teach about the Nephilim. Those are the giant offspring of the fallen angels and human females discussed in Genesis 6 and elsewhere. The Star Wars generation around us is ripe to hear a true story of really bad monsters!

Thank you Dr. Johnson.
