Some of the greatest crimes that the early Christians of the First Century Church were accused of and persecuted for, were: atheism, cannibalism, and incest. Bizarre? Then is might come to no surprise, that they were accused by those who heard Christians speak, their lingo, but did not know Christianity for themselves.
- Atheism: (Christians refused to participate in communal ceremonies to worship the gods or the emperors).
- Cannibalism: (Drinking the blood and eating the flesh of Christ).
- Incest: (Marrying your brother or sister–in Christ).
The things you learn while studying Church History, and a prime example of misunderstanding.
