What caused the Great Apostasy?/External Persecution?
Here is the second part in my series on the Great Apostasy. If you have not yet viewed Part 1 you should follow this link so you can view it first before you start part 2. In this segment we examine the persecution that was heaped upon the early saints, and attempt to determine how and if that persecution contributed to the eventual demise of the primitive church as it was established by Christ. As always, feedback is appreciated. Also, when you are done you can move on to Part 3.
