The early church:
Lived in an immoral society much worse than ours
Had no followers in government to make the laws
Had no laws of the land protecting them
Hid when they worshipped
Had persecution for 300 years then took over the world.
Proclaimed the Authority of Jesus over Satan and nature
Moved in the gifts God gave it
Most of the western church:
Lives in an immoral society far less immoral than the one the early church lived in
Has followers in government
Has laws to protect it
Can worship openly
Is declining and losing out to the world
What is the difference?
