|What Made The Early Christians So Devoted? by Hiswordxray(m): 8:45am On Jan 14|
Let go back to the very beginning of Christianity. Look at that small group of people faced with annihilation; the most powerful empire threatening to put an end to them. Even there own people, fellow Jews, despised them and wanted to put them to death. Yet we see that community striving until the most hunted religion in the Roman empire becomes the most famous religion.
Soon everybody wanted to be associated with Christianity, they forgot how it started, how many gave their lives for it. But what did the early Christians saw that drove them so mad?...

I have read people who go about talking about what the early Christians saw and try to speak about them by giving their own interpretations of what the Bible says.
have you ever taken your time to read up what those persecuted Christians believed and taught, what their faith was made up of, what practiced?
have you ever seek out how they understood scriptures OR do you rather interpret scriptures according to your own ideas forgetting it was addressed to people?
sorry to add this conclusion but the testimony of the early Christians makes no meaning to the Protestants of today because they have decided instead to use scriptures as though it is a 16th century document belonging to Martin Luther and co.
I honesty doubt that you aren't one of those people I have described above.

Trustme2:I'm sorry Google rules, you cannot have the the same content in two different websites. It affects the legitimacy of your work, discredit your authorship. You understand

Ubenedictus:For your information I have read countless of history books on the early Christians. I have examined and studied ancient documents of early Christianity. I have watched countless of documentaries about early Christianity, I have even written books with contents about early Christianity. I'm not a novice in this area, when I talk about early Christianity I know what I'm saying.

Hiswordxray:I am not asking about the history books you have read, nor the documentaries made yesterday or the stuff you may or may not have written.
I am asking how many of the Early Christians themselves have you read, how do you teach and practice the faith in the light of how it was always taught and practiced from the beginning .

Ubenedictus:This shows you don't read history books of Christianity because if you do you would know that some of this books contain enough details about these early Christians themselves.

Hiswordxray:I actually read history books and I have seen some historians interpreting the early Christians the way they like, that is why I asked you have you read the early Christians themselves? not just some historian telling you what you want to hear.
have you read the early Christians?

"But what did the early Christians saw
that drove them so mad?..."

Ubenedictus:I have read the New Testament, Paul, Ignatius, Polycarp, Eusebius and others. Are these not early Christians, although Eusebius is much later but he gave one of the most early and detailed history of early Christianity.
