A Great Historical Mystery... Finally Solved:
Second century documents, such as The Sybilline Oracles and the Apocalypse of Peter, reveal a very big surprise.
These documents show that the vast majority of second century Churches taught the doctrine of temporary punishment during their services.
And this is not the only historical surprise. Other documents show that, out of the original six Christian theological schools, five of them taught their students the doctrine of temporary punishment as well.
As a whole the historical record shows that, up until the fifth century, the doctrine of temporary punishment was the mainstream, majority view - the view of most laymen, most churches, and most theological institutions.
However the historical record also reveals that, by the end of the fifth century, everything had suddenly and drastically changed. Almost all at once virtually every new Christian believed the exact opposite doctrine. By the end of the fifth century, new Christians were almost exclusively being taught the doctrine of eternal damnation in hell.
So here is the great historical mystery: What happened in the fifth century that suddenly and dramatically changed the course of the Christian faith?
The answer is shocking. And you can discover the shocking answer for yourself in The Jerome Conspiracy.
