Constantine: Christianity's Corrupter

Constantine is remembered as Christianity’s champion. But, in reality, he was its corrupter. Constantine perverted the message of Jesus in the name of imperialism and warmongering. He opened the door to holy wars blood shed in the name of God. This twisting of Christianity haunts us to this day.
Before Constantine, Christianity was more peace loving and less materialistic. The Emperor may have spread the Christian Religion, but at the cost to its very soul. Without Constantine, Christianity might not be as widespread, but it would be truer to it roots.
Jesus himself said he had no "Earthly Kingdom", and ruled an empire "not of this Earth".
