The ‘Constitution Of The Holy Apostles’ Was Not Written By The Apostles And Is Catholic Not Christian

The Constitution Of The Holy Apostles is an interesting read, but it is not Scripture and is not able to speak to or interpret Scripture. The Bible says that the "private interpretations" so loved by the Catholic Church are unBiblical, and that only the Bible can interpret the Bible.

Just remember that the 1,200 time period of the rule and reign of the Catholic Church used to be taught in schools as the Dark Ages. Think about that.

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:19-21 (KJV)

Here at NTEB, we receive emails from all over the globe on a daily basis, and we love to hear from our loyal readers. Oftentimes, however, people who hate the Bible doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture send us various links and articles in an attempt to prove the pretrib will not take place. One of the things that those people will point to is a spurious writing that dates back to the time in the late 300’s just after the founding of Rome’s Catholic “church” in 325. This writing, known as the Constitution Of The Holy Apostles, is what they use to show a post tribulation rapture of the Church.

A pro-Catholic defense site has this to say about it: “It purports to be the work of the Apostles, whose instructions, whether given by them as individuals or as a body, are supposed to be gathered and handed down by the pretended compiler, St. Clement of Rome, the authority of whose name gave fictitious weight to more than one such piece of early Christian literature. The Church seems never to have regarded this work as of undoubted Apostolic authority. The Trullan Council in 692 rejected the work on account of the interpolations of heretics. Only that portion of it to which has been given the name “Apostolic Canons” was received; but even the fifty of these canons which had then been accepted by the Western Church were not regarded as of certain Apostolic origin.” source

Yet even though it was mostly rejected as authentic by the early Catholic Church, in our day it is promoted by the Vatican as well as Laodicean “christians” bent on trying to destroy your faith in what the apostle Paul called our “Blessed Hope”, the doctrine that Jesus will return to remove His Church in the days before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble.

The Catholic Church has always taught a Post Tribulation theology:

So the next time you meet someone who tries to talk you out of your faith in the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, and goes to Catholic writings to prove their point, just remind them that the Vatican is the Whore of Babylon mentioned in Revelation 17 and 18, and will be destroyed during the Tribulation.

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)

You cannot debate Bible doctrine with non or unbiblical material. The Constitution Of The Holy Apostles is an interesting read, but it is not Scripture and is not able to speak to or interpret Scripture. The Bible says that the “private interpretations” so loved by the Catholic Church are unbiblical, and that only the Bible can interpret the Bible.

Just remember that the 1,200 time period of the rule and reign of the Catholic Church used to be taught in schools as the Dark Ages. Think about that.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
