What is the Ultimate Power of the Catholic Church?

When Constantine saw the cross of the crucified Christ in the sun, the world changed. Christianity immediately changed from cult status to the official religion of the now Holy Roman Empire. The Roman armies now had God on their side as they conquered and subdued the peaceful polytheistic and pagan societies that were no match for the Roman war machine.

Indeed, this is exactly what happened to England in 1538, as the Pope Paul III decided, many agree for purely political reasons, to cut off the everlasting glory of heaven to an entire nation of people. People just like you and me who struggle every day to get their needs met and do the right thing, to take care of themselves and the people that they love. Such is the power that one holds who claims sovereignty over the very keys of heaven.
