But that is not to be confused with the simple and actual Christianity found in the New Testament. Truth may be painful sometimes, but far LESS painful than trying to defend falsehoods, and doctrines that clearly were absent at the beginning. Do your own research. The Vatican did not even exist for the first years of Christianity.
Wanting it to be true will not make it true. Wait until you find out about lines of succession, that contradict each other, and they are each separately issued by different popes. And those lines of succession contradict each other, about which early Pope supposedly succeeded a different early pope.
Those are just invented histories. It is important to make a difference between historic Christianity, and the teachings of Rome, invented and developed either by Pagan rituals, or invented by the Vatican. Constantine died a pagan emperor and worshipper of sol invictus clarified in the work of Hislop. Every hear of someone called Malachi Martin? Did you read what he wrote about the truth of conclaves? At the very least the vatican is a horrible testimony to the power of God to change lives.

In its current state, the Vatican remains a badly corrupted institution, as it has been ever since it made its alliance with imperial Rome. No one wants you to know the truth. No one wants you to read the facts for yourself. There is far more material, than what Hislop included in one book. What many Catholics of Rome want is to be able to place their trust blindly into their church and hope that this will carry them to Eternal Life. That however contradicts what the New Testament teaches.
Priests do not have the power to remit sins. They never have, unless that was found in pagan systems of ancient religions. And Reading works like those of Griesinger, or Sarpi or Dollinger, or Malachi Martin will tell you much more than you will ever learn, by believing Vatican myths.

The study of error fosters the successful promotion of the truth. Hislop's work in a model in and of itself, which stands purely as an example of what, if truly inspired by the Holy Ghost, one should look out for in their search for the truth. It stands alone as the classic example of the anti-Catholic sentiment that raged in the time it was written as a pamphlet in , full of great historical errors and bigotry that pass for genuine scholarship.
If that was not enough, it was later expanded in and finally published as a book in He uses all of the old professorial stand-bys in order to be convincing as possible, Latin phrases and erroneous self-interpretation of Holy Scripture being the most blatant. His understanding of the religion of Babylon is altogether wrong, as is his use of scripture out of context. One who truly understands history and the Bible and where and how it came about clearly sees these errors, which make for a strange interest in seeing how far he will go to prove his conjectures.
As the Catholic Church has, or never will be, disproved, it is safe to say, as it is promised by Christ, that the gate of Hell have not prevailed by Hislop's efforts. The enemy confuses, but is never totally victorious. Satan himself could not have done a better job of it, although I suspect he had much to do with it in co-authorship. Satan's commission will be fulfilled in payments not of coin, but of souls lost by believing that the very Church Christ Himself founded is evil in and of itself. As to the real reason for such a production, I am not going to judge as too many factors that could be involved, but do rest assured that the effort was not a divinely inspired one.
To make the Church out to be what Hislop proposes would make Christ out to be a liar and deceiver Himself. I pray that is not what he was suggesting in his theories, but rather he was simply ignorant of the truth.

He is what may be considered as invincibly ignorant, and we must give him the benefit of the doubt as to his actual motives. No valid reason seems to offer a logical explanation, except that the author was certifiably mad, demonically possessed or just your typical heretic with little to do and a great deal to say.
