CHURCH (so called) FATHERS.
any of these men who teach killing in wars for Christians (heresy), or adulterous second marriage (heresy), is a proven false teacher. Yet if they teach nothing on the subjects to me it proves they were no teachers in the first instance, having failed to lay any moral foundations in the Faith. Orthodoxy is a sex cult that allows adultery in second marriages. If these men can be proven to agree with them they are heretics. The fact the Catholics teach the utter opposite proves they were never one church, or at some point the Orthodox allowed extreme laxity into their already false church. It is a massively important point to consider that the Orthodox would rather find out the doctrines of these men on many minor issues, like the Filioque, than "the works of the flesh" like murder and adultery, proving them guilty of confusing "weightier matters of the law" and minor ones, as Jesus accused the Pharisees of in Matthew 23.

LIST OF CHURCH FATHERS :
The following is a list of Christian Church Fathers. Roman Catholics generally regard the Patristic period to have closed with the death of John of Damascus, a Doctor of the Church, in 749. However, Orthodox Christians believe that the Patristic period is ongoing. Therefore, the list is split into two tables.
If only a relatively small number of these men are studied by you, and you decide they are heretics, it would mean you conclude the Catholic and Orthodox faiths are false. The farce is however that they move you outside of scripture into a massive never ending world of books and dusty ancient tomes to "verify the faith". It is just a clone of the Talmud trap. a massive diversion away from the INFALLIBLE word of God.
CHURCH FATHERS Until John of Damascus :
Adrian the monk of Antioch wrote a manual on the Antiochene method of Scriptural exegesis
Alexander of Lycopolis4th century
Apollinaris of Hirapolis2nd century

99 AD - Clement of Rome
1 Epistle of Clement -
2 Epistle of Clement -
1 Epistle on Virginity - how can they be 99AD if they contain the chapter/verse numerals only added
quote "The chapter divisions commonly used today were developed by Stephen Langton, an Archbishop of Canterbury. Langton put the modern chapter divisions into place in around A.D. 1227. The Wycliffe English Bible of 1382 was the first Bible to use this chapter pattern. "
2 Epistle on Virginity - Two "Epistles on Virginity" were traditionally attributed to Clement, but now there exists almost universal consensus that Clement was not the author of those two epistles. so in that case that proves "church tradition" fallible.
The False Decretals - A 9th-century collection of church legislation known as the False Decretals, which was once attributed to Saint Isidore of Seville, is largely composed of forgeries. All of what it presents as letters of pre-Nicene popes, beginning with Clement, are forgeries, as are some of the documents that it attributes to councils; and more than forty falsifications are found in the decretals that it gives as those of post-Nicene popes from Pope Sylvester I (314–335) to Pope Gregory II (715–731). The False Decretals were part of a series of falsifications of past legislation by a party in the Carolingian Empire whose principal aim was to free the church and the bishops from interference by the state and the metropolitan archbishops respectively.

quote "Clement is included among other early Christian popes as authors of the Pseudo-Isidoran (or False) Decretals, a 9th-century forgery. These decrees and letters portray even the early popes as claiming absolute and universal authority. Clement is the earliest pope to whom a text is attributed." In other words.... they are forgeries designed to falsify that early Popes claimed the false authority as present ones, AND their false church structure of so called authority...
""These early documents were designed to show that by the oldest traditions and practice of the Church no bishop might be deposed, no Church councils might be convened, and no major issue might be decided, without the consent of the pope. Even the early pontiffs, by these evidences, had claimed absolute and universal authority as vicars of Christ on Earth." Durant, Will. The Age of Faith. New York: Simon and Schuster. 1972. p. 525"
