13 Sep What Happened?
Continuing with more from Justo Gonzalez…
After Constantine put an end to Christian persecution, Christians began to experience peace and favor. What would happen when those who called themselves servants of a carpenter, and whose great heroes were fisherfolk, slaves, and criminals condemned to death by the state, suddenly saw themselves surrounded by imperial pomp and power? Would they remain firm in their faith? Or would it be that those who had stood before tortures and before beasts would give way to the temptations of an easy life and of social prestige?
