EUSEBIUS ON CHRISTIAN COMPASSION


The Christian conquest of the Roman Empire came not by the sword, but by the preaching of the gospel joined with acts of compassion.


In the middle of the 3rd century AD there was a terrible plague and many died. The pagans and doctors left the cities to avoid this disease. However, the Christians stayed behind and helped those who were ill and dying. Eusebius, a church historian, states that because of the Christians compassion in the midst of the plague, the Christians' "deeds were on everyone's lips, and they glorified the God of the Christians. Such actions convinced them that they alone were pious and truly reverent to God."
