Christian History Movies and History Course
Endorsed by Sioux Falls Atheists

Sioux Falls Atheists recommends the following documentaries and courses that describe the history of Christianity.

Below you will find another "Hollywood" movie. One based on true events:
Magdalene laundries support scheme unveiled

You also find documentaries of the Salem Witch Trials, 20 innocent people murdered for being witches. Documentaries of over 600 years of the Inquisition, ten's of thousands burned alive at the stake, and many, many more horribly tortured and crippled in the name of God. Documentaries of the Crusades and the massacres by the Christian crusaders of people of all faiths (Muslims, Jews and Christians), and their cannibalism of Muslim children, because, you see, the crusaders had plenary indulgences forgiving them for any and all sins. Documentaries of how the Bible was created, what was left out and what was included, and what the latest discoveries regarding it reveal. A documentary on how the concept of the Devil came about, and how that concept was used against the common people. And finally a course on the Old Testament by a religious scholar who tells the truth about history, and lets the Bible fall where it may.

Sioux Falls Atheists finds history fascinating. We are so often denied the truth because it would reflect bad on Christianity or on Western Civilization. But so be it. Better the truth than a pack of lies about the past. How can we do better if how bad it really was is kept from us?

10-29-17 The young man who shook the Catholic Church to its core
Five hundred years ago, a young German monk began the Protestant Reformation, shattering the authority of the Catholic Church. Centuries later, there are signs that the churches have put aside their differences. In an early scene from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet's mother Gertrude begs him not travel to Wittenberg. She believes that her son's studies in a provincial German town on the banks of the River Elbe may be a threat to their security and the Catholicism of his upbringing. She had good reason to be worried. For that is precisely what happened when a monk called Martin Luther engaged in the concentrated study of scripture at the University of Wittenberg. It would lead him to some Biblical beliefs - particularly the doctrine of justification by faith alone - that would transform Luther's understanding of church, God and eternal life. It would also result in him hammering 95 theses - arguments and objections - to the doors of the Schlosskirche, or University church. With each blow, the authority and stability of the Catholic Church was challenged as never before. "He wanted to rediscover Christ," says Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, Germany's most senior Protestant bishop, "and he fought against certain practices of the Church of his time." "And since it was not possible to agree upon these things and to find a way forward to reform the Church, he started something new. And many people went with him," adds the bishop. The anniversary of Luther's protest will be marked in Wittenberg on 31 October, 500 years after he hammered on the University church's doors.
