How different is today’s church from the early church?
We are living nearly twenty centuries after Pentecost. Still, Christians may tend to assume that the church culture we know today is basically the same as what the apostles established in the New Testament churches. Perhaps this is because we are unfamiliar with the early church and its history. But, how similar is the church today to the beliefs and practices of the earliest church? If a Christian from the first-century was transported to today would they recognize and accept modern beliefs and practices as their own or would they find them foreign or even contrary to what they knew?
