Is the Christianity we have today what it was 2000 years ago? The barnacles of time have changed how we view Christianity. I have wanted to discuss this topic for some time now. I am just getting to the point where I am getting around to it.
"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” St. Augustine
"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." NASB Galatians 5:1
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.” NLT John 3:16-21
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in union with the Messiah Jesus." ISV Romans 8:1
