As the Word of God began to be translated into different languages the people started to understand it and cast off the false teachings that had ruled for nearly 900 years. Still during this time, the predominant characteristic of the church was a dead church, but it still had those among it that were true believers. Many suffered persecution and even death as a result of defending the faith. Let us of the church remember this time and cast of its false teachings. Not permitting the separation of the clergy, worshiping of false idols and symbols, pagan religious beliefs, or any other aspect of this assembly to again infiltrate the Church, by knowing and rightfully dividing the Scripture.
