10/06/2016 RELS 1315 FL16 ORIGINS OF CHRISTIANITY Dr. Joseph de Leon Chapter Fourteen: “Acts of the Apostles, Letters, and Revelation”. MOD7/WK7 DISCUSSION BOARD EXERCISE QUESTION 1. Write an essay which explains two or three challenges facing the earliest Christians, giving examples of how and where they are reflected in various New Testament letters. Also discuss what you currently view as major difficulties or challenges facing Christians today and how you believe that the early Christian apostles and teachers might have dealt with them. In this essay I will shed some light on two challenges that early Christianity experienced and 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 he addresses 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 is a noticeable hierarchy within their churches. This hierarchy creates a psychological difference within the congregations of feeling less righteous than other.
