I'm not christian, but I'm very interested in all of the history behind christianity.

The more I read and watch about early christianity, the more it starts to stick out to me that today's christians don't remotely look like they believe or practice the same religion from those early years.  

Does this bug you at all?  Or are you happy with the morphs that have occurred through the centuries?  Do you just write changes off as God's will or something?

Can you give some examples of the differences you are talking about?

Your question is vague, Christains are preaching, praising, singing, rejoicing the Gospel as always. They are also being persecuted in the thousands per year as alweays as well.

persecution isn't confined to Christians but lately they tend to proclaim it the loudest.

You're right it isn't, but a growing trend in adults (young adults in particular) is an outright disdain for Christians.....today it's cool to hate Christ/Christians/Christianity.  That coupled with the vast armies of Google warriors worldwide and never before has the outcry against Christians been greater.  Regardless, this type of position is expected by Christians....it's biblical.  It's just the sheer numbers of folks (worldwide) openly hating Christians that has brought about the louder than normal proclamations.

In some other countries the persecution is pretty pervasive.

Good news for atheists and agnostics is that their position will continue to receive favor and praise from the entire world and will increase significantly.

Live the faith as the Christ taught it and you would be a lamp unto the feet of all you know.  Seek not to incite nor even to instruct.  Rather instead inspire.  These words are from a Christian friend of  mine, one of the few I know that knows the Christ.  My reply?

I was spiritually orphaned before ever I was born again.  I never pick on those I know to be true followers of Jesus of Nazareth.

And just so you know it's really me, fuck the noise that is...islam.
