Being Faithful to the Original Faith that Was Delivered
The Catholic Encyclopedia teaches:
Thus both groups admit that the belief in millenarianism was held by the early church. It was apparently abandoned by Catholic leaders when they decided to interpret certain clear prophetic passages allegorically (an article of related interest may be ) and when there was an improved arrangement between the Roman Church and the Roman Empire. Now a view that the early church held is condemned because it shows that God has a plan to offer salvation past the current Church Age.
