This is more of an observation, than a long entry. I'll probably build on it. Been reading early church history. Been reading fairly early political history of the Eastern Roman Empire and I've come to a depressing conclusion. The church(es) as less the product of divine grace or inspiration than the result of who was the last man (usually) standing when the mob was driven away, the war was over, the last pagan, heretic or nonbeliever driven out. Why should anything change. It's worked so well for almost two thousand years. We not only don't learn from history, we're eager to repeat it.
