The Early Church

A Description

THE LETTER TO DIOGNETUS

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.

— Galatians 2:20 – The New Testament

The Epistle To Diogene’s

CHAPTER 1

1:1 Since I see, most excellent Diogenes’s, that thou art exceedingly anxious to understand the religion of the Christians, and that thy enquiries respecting they are distinctly and carefully made, as to what God they
trust and how they worship Him, that they all
disregard the world and despise death, and take no account of those who are regarded as gods by the Greeks, neither observe the superstition of the Jews,and as to the nature

of the affection which they entertain one to another, and of this new development or interest, which has entered into men’s lives now
and not before: I gladly welcome this zeal in thee, and I ask of God, Who supplieth both the speaking and the hearing to us, that it may be granted to myself to speak in such a way that thou mayest be made better by the hearing, and to thee that thou mayest so listen that I the speaker may not be disappointed.

The entire letter can be read here. It consist of 12 parts.

In the above short description of the Christian Church about (130-200 AD), how would you say this compares to the church today? In my next entry I will discuss my feelings on this.

Peace, James Kirk-Wiggins
