What is different?

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
