The History of Christianity #28
Our Scripture passage today is Matthew 5:12 which reads: "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."
Our quote today is from Tertullian. He said: "Only without the sword can the Christian wage war: the Lord has abolished the sword."
Today, we are discussing "Persecution in the Second Century" (Part 4) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Today's subject is Persecution Under Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius, who became emperor in 161 AD, possessed one of the most enlightened minds of his age. He was not, like Nero and perhaps Domitian, enamored with power and vainglory. On the contrary, he was a refined man who left behind a collection of Meditations, written for his private use, which are literary masterpieces of the time. He expresses some of the ideals with which he tried to rule his vast empire:
Think constantly, both as a Roman and as a man, to do the task before you with perfect and simple dignity, and with kindness, freedom, and justice. Try to forget everything else. And you will be able to do so if you undertake every action in your life as if it were the last, leaving aside all negligence and the opposition of passion to the dictates of reason, and leaving aside also all hypocrisy, egotism, and rebelliousness against your own lot.
Under such an emperor, it could be expected that Christians would enjoy a period of relative peace. And yet, the same emperor who expressed such lofty ideals regarding government also ordered that Christians be persecuted....
We continue discussing Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, focusing on the relationship between the individual, rational being and the Commonwealth or "World City". This week we will be approaching the topic from the lens of self-interest. How does Marcus Aurelius' view of a Commonwealth of rational beings connect with notions of self-interest? Further, how do Marcus Aurelius' exhortations to rid ourselves of anger and promote tolerance and patience connect with one's self-interest? These are some of the questions on which we will focus for this week's episode of EthicsTalk.
In his Meditations, Marcus Aurelius repeatedly affirms that human beings are both reasonable and social. And in Book X, Verse 2, he appears to identify a deep connection between aspects of human nature when he claims “what is reasonable is consequently also social”. In this show, we will explore the meaning of this connection. What is the nature of relationship between the reasonable and the social? Do human beings possess the natural capacity for reason to serve the social? Or are human beings social so that their rational natures can be developed? Or perhaps the reasonable and the social are inter-entailing and ‘co-dependent’ in some way. The objective of the show is to gain a better understand Marcus Aurelius’ view of the relationship between the ‘reasonable’ and ‘social’ aspects of human nature and how this facet of Marcus Aurelius’ philosophy connects with his metaphysical views about the nature of the universe and the ‘human commonwealth’

After receiving the good news regarding Derrick Rose's impending return in time for the playoffs, the Chicago Bulls can't seem to catch a break, suffering injuries to two more key players over the weekend. Who on the Bulls roster can be that "next man up" and compensate for the loss in production from the team's star players? Meanwhile the Chicago Blackhawks were busy at the NHL trade deadline, acquiring veteran pieces to alleviate the loss of Patrick Kane and bolster their thin defense. Can the new guys help the Hawks make it deep enough into the playoffs for Kane to return? A 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes last night certainly helped ease the pain and instill some confidence within the team's locker room. With all that's going on for the Bulls and Hawks, are you looking at the positives or negatives? I've got open phone lines for you! (347) 327-9183. BECAUSE CHICAGO LOVES SPORTS.
Dr. Webb Evans, Founder of the United American Progress Association is remembered for his slogan Buy Black. Following in the tradition of Marcus Garvey, Dr. Evans urged African Americans to spend money with other African Americans in order to build self sustaining communities. He sought to empower black owned businesses to hire black people and alleviate the problems of discrimination in hiring. He was active right up to his passing at the age of 101 years old. A few years ago, he appointed a successor, Min. Rahim Chesed Aton, known by many as "Sax Preacher" to carry on the campaign to re-educate African American consumers to "Buy Black." Do we actually have the power to solve our economic problems in our hands if we just engage in strategic spending?
