The early Christian church that existed shortly after the death and resurrection of Christ and the Christian churches of today are very different. What happened to the Christianity between 40 AD and the present times is the mystery of iniquity that is spoken of by Apostle Paul and was already at work in the early church.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
Hello, my name is David Nunn. My wife Kimberly and I have attended UCG since January 1996. I am an attorney, and have my own law firm in Edmond, Oklahoma. Before coming into God's church, I was a Captain in a light infantry brigade in the Army reserve forces. I left that behind to respond to God's calling to salvation. Since June 2014 I have been blessed to serve as a minister of Jesus Christ.
