Chapter 12 - True Christianity, a Minority Phenomena
The failure of Israel could have been predicted from a mathematical basis alone.
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. - Matthew 7:14
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. - John 15:19
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. - John 3:19
Just as there were several thousand in Israel seeking the truth of God in spite of the opposition of the ruling elite, there have been thousands of Christians over the centuries who have sought the truth of Christ in spite of the opposition of churches and church leaders.
In the fourth century the Roman empire went from persecuting Christianity to making it a monopoly. From this we receive the ‘Christian’ nations of Europe. As a result, there were two types of Christianity. The first was the institution through which political and economic advantage could be sought. The second type was the individual whereby (even with faulty, incomplete, and erroneous doctrine), one might still seek and live for Christ.
