Bell and Wo arc accustomed to think cf Ihe early church as a church of pure and undented religion, and we arc apt lo think Hint if we could only get back to the days of primitive Christianity, all the defects and abuses in the church of today would disappear. The fact is that Ihc m;re carefully we look into the records of the New Testament, the more conscious wo arc of the fact that even in Ihc church of Ihc generation immediately succeeding the Master, things were by no means idea'.. We have seen how. even in the days of the Master Himself and in His very presence, dissension arose among the disciples and disputes as to who among them should lie the greater and i concerning other mailers, which In 1 lliclr very nature belied the leach- In',, and example of the Christ whom they had left all lo follo.v. The li-ciiblcs lhat arise in the early church were somewhat of Ihc same kind and from the same causes. Self-seeking and jealous striving crealc discord and difll- culty wherever they appe^-w home life, In public life, and cvei in the religious life of the church But In addition lo Ihcse things there were also sordid aspects o 1 these early Christian communltie un/rXSK' ~r W ol SSp.tS'^nirSS e!vvn4,nen «»"» Xr'nea?
