Again, the doctrine of the Nicolatains is about corrupting others under the pretext of Mercy. Many Universalists often preach this very doctrine. Not that Universalism is in error (I'm actually a universalist) but teaching that one can be saved and never have to mind being obedient is the doctrine of the Nicolatains. That is why I believe that God will eventually bring about the obedience of everyone in saving them instead of saving them despite obedience.

As far as written historical accounts, the earliest mention of St. Nicholas was a commemoration of him in 1492.

By His grace, I did some search on the internet and found the breakdown of the meaning of the Nicolaitans at this site. So by the meaning of the name, is how one can see what they are about.

Unless readers prefer to read the whole thing, scroll down halfway to the sub title: Greek Construction of the word Nicolaitans and then read on to the nest sub title: The full meaning of the word Nicolaitans

Why does God HATE the practices of the NICOLAITANS?

It's what is in the name that makes up the meaning of the name.
