About the book content:
Jesus Christ speaks in John 10:10: The thief (Satan) comes only to rob, murder and destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they (His disciples/followers) may have life and full sufficiency (abundance).
I do not know any Christians who do not long for a life of abundance as promised by Jesus. And yet hardly anyone seems to live in such abundance. When asked about possible reasons for this, most cite two main causes. Some say the "evil fallen world" is to blame. The abundance described by Jesus is only to be had in heaven. Others see the cause in the "faith failures" of individual Christians. They have too little faith, practice hidden sins, are unreconciled and bitter, etc.
It is true that the above-mentioned reasons are correct and have negative effects. But after years of research and my own experience, I have come to the conclusion that there is another, very important reason for this circumstance, namely:
You have probably never heard of them. The story of "Romana" can help you to recognise the doctrine and works of the Nicolaitans, which are mentioned in the Bible in Revelation, chapter 2, and to understand their negative effects.
This book was written with the sole purpose of showing what systems and heresies of the Nicolaitans exist today, what destructive effects they have on us bible Christians, and that you can come out of this religious prison into the freedom and fullness that Jesus Christ intended for us.
It is explicitly not about attacking or condemning anyone, but about leading all Christians worldwide into the unity of Jesus Christ, as he himself prayed to the Father in John 17. Many faithful devoted Christians unknowingly, with the best of intentions, support and spread the doctrine and works of the Nicolaitans. I did the same for a long time, until God taught me certain lessons that have been incorporated into this book.
Very readable and exciting
I enjoyed the book very much and it helped!

The truth about the churches
EA very good book and the truth about the churches. Jesus hates this system and the book shows exactly why. I found the side story with the dark power a little strange, but that wasn't too bad. The message got through, I myself left the church three years ago.

My people are perishing for lack of knowledge
Different narratives run parallel in an exciting and entertaining way. It is about discipleship, about God-relationship, the prison walls in the clerical system, the alternative of house churches, passionate discipleship, listening to the Holy Spirit, deep fellowship, liberation from the clutches of esotericism and the example of the geese in the V-formation.

As mentioned on the book cover, this book is a non-fiction novel, i.e. a novel (imagined story) based on facts (actual events), which takes place on two levels.
On the visible level, experience how our main character, Romana Meier, discovers unconscious religious attachments and false teachings. With the help of God and her new friends, she is freed from them to a fully empowered, fulfilled life of freedom in Jesus Christ.
On the invisible plane, two high representatives of the dark world meet on the way to the success conference of their great leader of darkness. On the way from their territorial earthly seats of power, they exchange information about their successes. Everything seems to be going according to plan until they encounter an insurmountable opponent.
The insights that have gone into this book do not correspond to the common opinion about Christianity. Apparently, more and more Christians seem to see it that way, because the largest "denomination" at present is that of the free Christians. That is, Christians who are not part of any "church system".
With this book you have the opportunity to examine the common Christian structures on the basis of a biblical view in order to decide independently and on your own responsibility before the Lord how you want to continue living as a Christian.
Markus Nann, born in 1968, has been living as an active Christian since 1994 with the intention of seeking first the will of God and His righteousness, according to Matthew 6:33. He was integrated and active in Christian churches and congregations for many years before he was led out of the "church system" by the Lord. At first he felt this "being led out" as a curse rather than a blessing. He only recognised the blessing later, which he would like to pass on to all Christians in this book.
Professionally, he has been working as an independent organisational developer and potential coach in his company since 2003 arcSantis active. He lives with his family in the canton of Aargau (Switzerland). His specialities are organisational development on the basis of one's own identity and people management on the basis of healthy relationships. In 2021 he founded the company FussballFuchs, there you will find more books and matching products and helpful information, as well as some humour about football.
"Romana and the Flight of the Wild Geese" is his first work. Under the book title: "Romana and the Nicolaitans", this is a revised, expanded and updated new edition of his non-fiction novel on the subject: Life in the fullness promised by Jesus Christ.
Explicit and implicit responses of the churches (religion) to this:
Answer from Free Bible Christians (Gospel):
Who, or what, were [are] the Nicolaitans?
The Nicolaitans were an early Christian sect mentioned in the epistles to the churches in Ephesus (Rev 2:6) and Pergamum (Rev 2:15). According to church sources, the Nicolaitans were an early church sect that was "founded" by the deacon Nicholas from Antioch mentioned in Acts 6:5. In doing so, he led "his disciples" to eat meat sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication.
We do not know with one hundred percent certainty exactly who or what the "Nicolaitans" were. Opinions about this vary widely.
What is Christianity, what is meant by it?
Christianity is one of the 3 great monotheistic (there is only one God) world religions. Christians believe that Jesus Christ came to earth as the Son of God. Based on the number of church members, Christianity is the largest religious community in the world. The Christian community follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and the church traditions that have developed from them over time.
Interestingly, Christianity exists in two forms. Once in the more known form of religion, represented by the churches, denominations and confessions, and once in the less familiar form of direct living community (community of saints) with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head of the assembly (ecclesia). This lesser known form is explained in detail in this book.
What is "the most important thing" in Christianity?
According to the self-understanding of most churches, the core of the Christian religion lies in the unconditional love of God towards human beings and the whole of creation, which is explicitly expressed in and through the church.
"Conversion". This is the voluntary personal decision to believe in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and the Holy Spirit. This conscious decision is connected with accepting the grace of God (forgiveness of sins and thus becoming a child of God) and the endeavour to live a life pleasing to God.
What are the differences between Christian religion (churches) and the life of Christians in the ekklesia?
Through lifelong "performance" in the sense of the respective church, eternal life, or more or less blessing, is given as a reward (possibly) by the church or directly from God.
Immediate acceptance as a child of God through faith (complete trust) in Jesus Christ. (See 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Do I have to be a member of a church to be a "good Christian"?
YES, depending on the church doctrine, salvation only exists as a member of this church. For example, according to the official teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.
NO! Whoever believes in Jesus Christ in the sense of the Bible and confesses HIM, is automatically a child of God and belongs to the worldwide church of Jesus. (See Romans 8:15)
Am I sinning against the Holy Spirit if I do not go to church or am not a member of a church?
Depending on, more or less official, church teaching, yes.
Are churches sects that can make people sick and addicted?
No. One only becomes ill and dependent if one does not live one's life according to the guidelines of the Church. E.g. submitting too little, cultivating hidden [unconfessed] sins, etc.
Depending on the constellation and church doctrine, YES. Not all people in the same church are affected equally. Some suffer very much and others not at all.
What is wrong if I am constantly afraid or have an uneasy feeling about the church leadership (pastor, priest, minister) and even become ill as a result?
There must be some "hidden sins" that weigh on the conscience.
More likely than hidden sins being present, this is spiritual-religious abuse by leadership. Detailed information on this can be found in the book.
Am I a bad Christian if I am in church like a burn-out?
Depending on church doctrine and the situation, YES or NO. But at least pastoral care from the church is certainly needed.
If the only "redeeming reason" is the church, then surely NO.
In the following video on William Branham, you will learn about the effects of a near-perfect Nicolaitan system and how it can affect the people in it. You can learn about the causes and the solution of how not to get into such a system, or how to get out of it, in the book, Romana and the Nicolaitans.
