10/06/2016RELS 1315 FL16 ORIGINS OF CHRISTIANITYDr. Joseph de LeonChapter Fourteen: “Acts of the Apostles, Letters, and Revelation”.MOD7/WK7 DISCUSSION BOARD EXERCISE QUESTION1. Write an essay which explains two or three challenges facing the earliestChristians, giving examples of how and where they are reflected in variousNew Testament letters. Also discuss what you currently view as majordifficulties or challenges facing Christians today and how you believe thatthe early Christian apostles and teachers might have dealt with them.In this essay I will shed some light on two challenges that early Christianity experiencedand its relation to some challenges that modern Christianity currently faces. The first challenge,according to Frigge (2013) can be found in Paul’s first letter to the church at Corinth, where headdresses a community struggling with internal divisions and various moral failures (Frigge,2013, p.182). This is a problem that still persists in some divisions of Christianity where there isa noticeable hierarchy within their churches. This hierarchy creates a psychological differencewithin the congregations of feeling less righteous than other.
