Advancement of Christianity

September 2, 2010

The people over at Adullam in Denver post this quote from the Roman Emperor Julian as one of their aspirations:

Atheism (Christianity) has been specially advanced through the loving service rendered to strangers, and through their care for the burial of the dead. It is a scandal that there is not one single Jew who is a beggar, and that the godless Galileans care not only for their own poor but for ours as well; while those who belong to us look in vain for the help that we should render them.

What a reputation to have.  What a beautiful manifestation of a life changed by Jesus.

BTW – I’ll be starting Matt Smay and Hugh Halter’s book AND: The Gathered and Scattered Church this week.  More on that later…
