Look What They Did with Marcion’s Money

John Behr writes in The Way to Nicea (17) of the challenge posed to the church by

“Marcion, a rich ship owner from the Black Sea, who arrived in Rome in the middle of the second century and donated a large sum of money to the church there, for its charitable works, which was soon after returned to him when his particular teaching became known and rejected.”

May we follow the faithfulness of those who have gone before us. . .
