Julian the Apostate’s View of Christians

Julian the Apostate's View of Christians

In the Fourth Century an Emperor who was very antagonistic to Christianity had this to say about Christians. Oh that enemies of Christianity would say such things today “Why do we not observe that it is their [the Christians’] benevolence to strangers, their care for the graves of the dead, and the pretended holiness of their lives that have done most to increase atheism [unbelief of the pagan gods] For it is disgraceful that, when no Jew ever has to beg, and the impious Galileans [Christians] support not only their own poor but ours as well, all men see that our people lack aid from us. Teach those of the Hellenic faith to contribute to public service of this sort.”
