This morning I read a anonymous letter in church that was written around the second century. In it, the author describe the early Christians. Several of you have asked for a copy. So here it is… I posted it below. As you read it ask yourself: Can Christians today be distinguished from the world as easy as the early Christians were?
A letter to Diognetus, from an unknown writer, possibly dating from the second century.
“For Christians are not differentiated from other people by country, language or customs; you see, they do not live in cities of their own, or speak some strange dialect, or have some peculiar lifestyle.
