10 marks of the early church
Whenever Christians pick up the values of the Gospel and begin living them out in our city we are on the one hand vilified for our values and at the same time oddly attractive in ways that often confound our most vocal opponents. If we experience neither vilification nor attraction what qualities of our life are missing which mark Kingdom citizens through history?

I read this. It's good. I just had one thing extra to say. If we really loved people then I think we would stand out like the early church did. For a good definition of love, see below:

"By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for each other." (I John 3:16).

Or, just for fun, you can go to the link below, and see what the unnamed experts at Wikipedia think. It was actually pretty cool.

Hi everyone. I miss you guys. Yes, even you.
