God always has had His people in every age who have stood up for what is right, and we know that He will have the final world. Two principal philosophical onslaughts struck at the church early in its' life: Gnosticism and Docetism. Gnostics were dualists who taught that matter was bad and spirit was good. Docetists also taught that the body was bad; in fact, it was so bad that Jesus could not have had a real body because He was God. His human appearance and experiences were just illusion, thus He could not have died on the cross. Hence, the body was evil and the soul was good. How they interpreted Scripture was part of the problem. Lessons from post-apostolic times should compel Christian leaders to go back to the Word and, more importantly, to its Author.
