    Guest Columnist


    I have noticed people tend to glorify the first-century church. People talk about returning to primitive Christianity like it is the cure for all the problems the church faces. However, if you move past the first few chapters of Acts, the church had lots of issues. The church was filled with people from various backgrounds, maturity levels and world views trying to figure out what it means to be a Christian in this world. Just like the church is today.
