Text It's not entirely accurate either. Christianity was founded before the Romans adopted it. It was a kind of "can't beat 'em join 'em"
situation. The Romans tried to suppress the spread of Christianity and when they couldn't....well you know the rest of the story.
You are more right than wrong.
True Christianity was the Jerusalem church. The Jerusalem church was Hebrew with Hebrew liturgy. The Hellenist Greeks and were later adopted into
the church but had nothing to do with its foundation. This first Christian organization was established on the day of Pentecost following the murder
of Jesus and this group of disciples and the Apostles of Christ formed the first Christian church in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem church flourished with
harsh persecution from both Rome and the Jewish Sanhedrin for well over forty years.
In fact the Jerusalem Church's history is well established to about 135 AD when they were systematically murdered and the Roman empire took control
of the doctrine of Christ Jesus. At the turn of the century the entire organization emerged as Gentile and from there history records very little of
the true church and true Christians.
Most people are taught or led to the understanding that Roman Catholicism is the true church of Christ while the Jerusalem church history is totally
ignored. This is understandable simply because Rome established their church on a lie and murder and its true nature could not be embraced by history
with out lasting damage. Even though the common language of the land of Rome was Greek, the language of legal and church affairs was Latin.
