    The History of the Church and Today's Lukewarm Status

    in Christianity

    In order to understand how the Christian church has become the lukewarm church it is today, we must look at the history of the church which has gone through many dark periods. During these periods, beginning in the first century, important information about what Jesus originally taught has been lost. In addition to this disheartening fact, modern man has forgotten about God. There will be many consequences to face because of turning our backs on God. Tune in Monday to learn more.

    The Organization of the Church, Part 2 (The History of Christianity #72)

    in Religion

    Our History of Christianity Scripture verse today is 1 Timothy 5:3 which reads: "Honour widows that are widows indeed."


    Our History of Christianity quote today is from Ignatius of Antioch. He said: "But it is fitting for both men and women who marry to form their union with the approval of the bishop, that their marriage may be according to God, and not after their own lust."


    Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at "Christian Life" (Part 9) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).


    The Organization of the Church (Part 2)


    When speaking of women in the early church, mention should be made of the particular role of widows. The book of Acts says that the primitive church helped support the widows in its midst. This was in part an act of obedience to the repeated Old Testament injunction to care for the widow, the orphan, the poor, and the sojourner. But it was also a matter of practical necessity, for a widow deprived of means of support either had to remarry or to seek refuge with her children. In either case, if the new husband or the child was not a Christian, the widow would be severely limited in her Christian life. Therefore, it soon became customary for the church to support its widows, and to give them particular responsibilities. In an earlier broadcast, the story was told of a widow whose ministry was such that she enraged the pagans, and therefore became a martyr. Other widows devoted themselves to the instruction of catechumens. Eventually, the meaning of the word "widow" within the church changed and came to refer not just to a woman whose husband had died but also to any unmarried woman who was supported by the community and who in turn performed some particular functions within it...
