Church & Empire

Christians were viewed with suspicion by the Romans because their loyalty to Christ cut against their loyalty to an imperial project, in other words Christians were not questionable citizens of the Empire simply because the Romans worshiped other Gods, Christians are questionable citizen of any empire or nation-state because their primary loyalty belongs to the body of Christ, the Church.”
