If enough people believe that Chinggis Khan is the punishment of God, it almost becomes true, as everyone treats and reacts to him as the punishment of God. Chinggis Khan also had no respect for religion. He burned down churches and killed everyone inside, as easily as he killed anyone else. He also killed “all from the male sex even to the female, all the priests and monks… Wednesday in Easter week” Chinggis Khan killed priests and monks, who were ordained ministers who had strong connections to religion. This in itself is brutal and ruthless, but the additional fact that he chose to do this during Easter week, defined as “the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church…” is entirely ignorant of religion.

Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
In 1112 however, things began to change and the Bishop’s greed led him to seek power once more. Paying the king 300 more livres than the Burghers, he had the seal revoked from the commune and thus, taken out of legitimate power. This attempt at eliminating corruption in the church was done by the use of physical violence, and did not work out as well as the Burghers (organizers) had anticipated. The Burghers assembled with fierce anger, and forty of them swore by oath to kill the bishop and all those who had aided him to destroy the commune. The people swiftly caught on and a few days later, the Bishop Gaudri was thrown into the street and killed in minutes.
As he was led to his execution, “don Carlos was paraded from the inquisitorial jail to the scaffold to the city’s main square bearing the markings of a Holy Office convict (Tavarez, 26).” These executions attacked “a style of rulership that posed an obstacle to missionary evangelism enterprises (Tavarez, 26).” For many Christians, “don Carlos’s execution” was “to be an exemplary punishment to be witnessed by all native neophytes in the city (Tavarez, 26).” Other examples of exemplary punishment” include beginning in 1525 “when the Franciscans expelled the…priests of Texcoco from their temples, which were then demolished”, which in turn later led to the praising of “children from the first Franciscan school in Tlaxcala, who stoned to death a priest who had walked through a crowded market chewing on obsidian blades while dressed as Ome Tochtli, the Mexica deity associated with pulque ,an alcoholic beverage(Tavarez,31).” If these children would have been taught properly by their Franciscan teachers they would have known that this goes against God’s teachings within the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20:1-17(Exodus
A choice group called the Flagellants believed that God was punishing humanity for their sins, and began to march from city to city, men and women “flogging themselves with whips to win the forgiveness of God” (page 286). In the end, however, their crazed antics caused their demise by the hands of public authorities in 1350. The morbid thoughts of the European community in this dark time is forever immortalized in tombstone carvings of grotesque figures, rotting corpses, and
1. While it was the time of diversity in people and religion, once Severus was the empire in Rome, one of his sons murdered his brother, gaining criticism from the citizen.

Throughout the Sixteenth Century, the Roman Catholic Church carried immense amounts of power over the people. They had the power to decide what information was being fed to the public, considering that the Bible was in Latin, a language that a large percentage of the population did not understand. Due to the lack of transparency through the Roman Catholic Church, it was difficult for many to see how corrupt its system truly was. The issues of Simony and Nepotism were extremely prevalent within the church, along with usury. The Popes and priests were having children and committing murder, which strictly went against the Bible.
My dad often tells me of how the civil war killed some of his friends and family and left others destitute. It also forced him to take his wife and child to America. The Roman civil war had a similar effect killing hundreds of thousands and leading to the autocratic Roman Empire. Text-to-Text: Fall of Rome In Classical Civilization Rome and Aspects of Western Civilization the authors talks about how Rome fell and the causes of that fall.

But reading the Bible will reveal instances of Him mercilessly slaughtering millions of people, even more than Satan. We are then taught that Jesus is God, but these actions are incongruous with Jesus Christ's edict to treat others the way you want to be
