The Moral Standards of the Early Christians

They were very strict, which should not be surprising since they often had to face torture and death. Share

Thanks, that was interesting. I'm reading Founded on a Rock: A History of the Catholic Church by Louis DeWohl. A good review of Western civilization as well as church history. The Church survived because of extreme devotion; it's awe inspiring. What we went through during Diocletian's time and under the other Roman emperors, and still Christianity grew. Amazing!

Great! I also recommend that everyone read "Victories of the Martyrs" by St Alphonsus Liguori. Reading it will squelch any and all self-pity...and discouragement.
