Christian History

In this section, we want to introduce our readers to some of the key persons, places, movements, and things associated with the history of Christianity.


The Early Christians

Imagine being able to talk to a Christian leader who had been a personal disciple of one of the apostles! Of course, we cannot do that today, but we can do the next best thing. We can read the writings of men like Ignatius, Clement, and Polycarp, who were personal disciples of the apostles. Their writings give us an authentic glimpse at what Christianity was like when it was still young and largely undefiled.

Walking in the Resurrection - The Schleitheim Confession in Light of the Scriptures.

On a cold winter day in 1527, a group of persecuted Anabaptists secretly gathered in the town of Schleitheim seeking unity and desiring to clarify where they differed from the established state churches. The Schleitheim Confession was born from that meeting and soon became popular and influential among the Anabaptists-even to this present day.

Should it matter to us today what some persecuted Christians believed nearly 500 years ago? Can the convictions they had be backed up scripturally? This book examines the Schleitheim Confession in light of the Scriptures. The early Anabaptists lived and died for the faith once delivered to the saints, and we can profit from examining their conclusions, comparing them to the Scriptures, and following Christ as they followed Him.

John M Brenneman
Christianity and War, The nation was torn in two by the strife of the Civil War, yet there were some who dared to question whether Christians could possibly participate in the killing. In 1863, soon after the Battle of Gettysburg, John M. Brenneman wrote to explain Anabaptist convictions against participation in warfare. He began by explaining that a true Christian is one who follows Christís example, who is obedient to Christ, and who is filled with the Spirit of Christ. Having established this definition, he uses it to show that war is completely inconsistent with a Christian profession. The life of peace, love, and nonresistance is the life of obedience and following Jesus, and the only way of living which is truly spiritual.

War and peace; sword and cross; world and Christ. Which will we choose?
