But Christianity had survived for 2,000 years. Had it always been experienced the way that I experienced it? I knew that the early church was persecuted, and many were martyred. Did they really die for the Christianity that I knew? Not likely. Why would you die for something that you were embarrassed about? I occasionally had brought friends to Church with me. As I got older I did this less and less. Its not that my desire to introduce them to Jesus diminished; just my desire to have them participate in something I know I no longer wanted to myself.
