No, it's not all, there's a lot of pieces to this puzzle.
*Just about the Orthodox St. Constantine - not about other saints, as I really like most of them.
He was responsible for the deaths of so many people. This is POST conversion to Christianity.
He was baptized before dying, in 337 AD. Because he was soldier and engaged in battles, he considered that by killing people in war he is not worthy of baptism. Entering war does not disqualify anyone of being a saint. Many saints were soldiers, st. Demetrius of Thesalonica for example.
In 326 he executed his wife & son
His son died because of a plot of Constantine's wife Fausta. He was sentenced to death by a court in Pula. Fausta accused Crispus of trying to rape her.At that time, according to law, sleeping with the Queen, or attacking her was considered high treason and was punishable by death.
His wife, Fausta, deserved death because she was guilty for the death of Constantine's eldest son, Crispus. And it was not Constantine that killed her, it was his mother, st. Helena, who discovered the plot of Fausta and told her son about that.
In 332 & 334 he ran military campaigns where he was responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of Goths & Sarmatians. This was mostly for imperialism reasons.
Yes, because Goths, Slavs, Sarmatians etc. all threatened the borders of the Empire, entered the Empire, pillaging population, robbing provinces etc..What kind of King would have Constanine been if he just left the people in those provinces to the mercy of the barbarians?!
Quote from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine_I
"Later in 321, Constantine instructed that Christians and non-Christians should be united in observing the venerable day of the sun, referencing the sun-worship that Aurelian had established as an official cult. Furthermore, and long after his oft alleged "conversion" to Christianity, Constantine's coinage continued to carry the symbols of the sun. Even after the pagan gods had disappeared from the coinage, Christian symbols appeared only as Constantine's personal attributes: the chi rho between his hands or on his labarum, but never on the coin itself. Even when Constantine dedicated the new capital of Constantinople, which became the seat of Byzantine Christianity for a millennium, he did so wearing the Apollonian sun-rayed Diadem; no Christian symbols were present at this dedication."
Read the bold letters. He did not impose Christianity to all. That was a personal choice. His personal attributes were Christian, not the state's attributes. The state at that time was not Christian. It became under Theodosius the Great!
So that officially ended the Sabbath practicing Christians worship (for the most part).
Those that practiced the Sabbath were wrong, none of the Holy Fathers of the Church at that time practiced the sabath, even st. Apostle Paul in the NT says that those things are not for us.
Anyway, I've read things in defense of Orthodox St. Constantine, but I am not convinced....
Read all the historical sources at that time.
Put it like this, and it's a real easy question.
Would you trust Orthodox St. Constantine, or Clement of Rome more near your family?
