A Lamp in the Dark- The Untold History of the Bible (Full Documentary)
Help you understand why I am NOT a Catholic, cause IT'S JESUS that saves not a denomination
The Fruitful Vine in reply to FranklyMrShankly: Yes it does, Catholicism adds to doctrine and that is a problem.
Adding extra doctrine to scripture results in deception and confusion and God is NOT the author of confusion.
1Co 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
There are warnings in Revelation to anyone who adds to the word. It leads you away from the simplicity of the Gospel and distorts the truth, which is JESUS Christ. Jesus never advocated ANY denomination at all. He said take up your cross and follow me. Jesus is looking for FAITH, not a building or a denominational church.
Mat 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

A Lamp In The Dark: Untold History of the Bible - Full Documentary
A Lamp in the Dark is an exciting new documentary that unfolds the fascinating "untold" history of the Bible, revealing critical information often overlooked in modern histories. Enter into a world of saints and martyrs battling against spies, assassins and wolves in sheep's clothing.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the Papal Inquisition forbade biblical translation, threatening imprisonment and death to those who disobeyed. Learn the stories of valiant warriors of the faith, such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, the ancient Waldenses, Albigenses and others who hazarded their lives for the sake of sharing the Gospel light with a world drowning in darkness.
Once the common people were able to read the Bible, the world was turned upside down through the Protestant Reformation. The Reformers subdued whole kingdoms by preaching the grace of God, and exposing the unbiblical doctrines of Rome. In response, the Vatican would launch a Counter Reformation to destroy the work of the Reformers, including the bibles they produced.
A Lamp in the Dark was filmed on locations in England and Belgium, and features never before seen interviews with leading Bible scholars, including David Brown, Roger Oakland, Alan O'Reilly, D.A. Waite and others. Also included are chief curators from the British Library in London, Erasmus House in Belgium, and the William Tyndale Museum in Vilvoorde, where Tyndale himself was burnt at the stake.
This ground-breaking documentary is also filled with rich visual graphics and dramatic re-enactments of key historic events.
1) The history of the early Church, with the warnings from Jesus and the Apostles about "grievous wolves" and apostasy.
2) How the Inquisition began for the purpose of silencing Christians and outlawing the Bible.
3) The Bible translations of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, and finally the King James Version.

6) The Counter Reformation which began with the founding of the Jesuit Order in 1540.
7) The Vatican's involvement with the Critical Text and their influence over world-wide biblical translation in the 20th century.
