1 Cary W = "The first ten minutes of this documentary on the history of Christianity is most inspiring, for it correctly relays the beginning roots and movements of the early church.  From the moment on Pentecost, when Christ Spirit descended on His followers, there was a transformation of how people lived.They sold possessions, pooled all their resources, lived and supped together, all so that they could fund the spreading of the good news, Christ is risen"
2 Cary W = "Catholics, who believe Peter to be the first leader of Christianity (with the current Pope being the true leader today), may have a hard time with the statements here about James the just, the brother of the Lord, being the true first leader of the church.From what I have studied in scripture, the only leader of God's Christian church would be Jesus, with all the rest of His followers given various leadership roles under the direction of the one Holy Spirit given them."
3 Cary W = "Stephen was stoned for rebuking the Jewish leaders for killing Jesus, and when the leader of the Christian persecution, Saul, had stepped up his goal of ending this rebellious movement, God does something remarkable. Instead of raining down judgment on him, He appears to him and reveals Christ to him, showing him that His followers are part of His own self and body."
4 Cary W = "An interesting point is made here in the second century of Christianity, when the church was forced to go underground to avoid Roman persecution, that it was women who were the most common leaders. It was not until the Nicean counsel that men were stated to be the only leaders of the church, which then became legalistic and started persecuting non believers. This is the beginning of the end of the true movement of Christ, which was founded on grace and love for all men, and equality before God, by grace, by all people, woman and men alike."
