We have a fantasy image of the early church as perfect and ideal church. Sometimes we overestimate the harmony between early Christians. Christians read Acts 4:32 and wish to be like the first Christians who “were one in heart and mind.” We are eager to live up to the early church. The early Christians were not 100% perfect. They argued among themselves and were divided. The apostle Paul writes to Christians in Corinth in south-central Greece, who competed with one another as to whose spiritual gift was more important than the other. Some Christians thought that certain spiritual gifts were the reason for claims of prestige and superiority.
