In this episode of the Praying With The Eyes podcast I’m joined by Ben Nickodemus as we ask the question, what lessons can we Christians learn from the early church? Edmond Burke stated, “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” Is this true when it comes to the church? Do we understand the first and second century church and the challenges they faced? We have often heard that the early church face persecution. How did that persecution affect the early Christians and the world that surrounded them? These questions are a few that Ben and I explore as we think about the present state of the Christian community in the 21st century.
