Only God Saves

staugustine_canterburySt Augustine was a very important part Christian history. Probably his most significant work was the City of God a book of Christian philosophy. When the Visigoths sacked Rome in 410 AD many believed this was due to the fact that Rome had abandoned its traditional Roman religion in exchange for Catholic Christianity. Thus wrote the City of God in response to this. Augustine says that Rome was already declining before Christianity became a major part of their civilization. Christianity had nothing to do with the fall of Rome. He also states that the rise and fall of the Roman Empire has nothing to do with the salvation of souls. Empires will rise and fall we must keep our eye on the ball. God can save us no one else
