The Burning of Rome
Summary: When the missionaries brought the light of the Gospel to North America in the seventeenth century, there was a cultural retaliation amongst the Amerindians. Some natives viewed these Christian missionaries as blessings and bearers of the New Life in Christ. While others viewed them as harbingers of death, bearers of small pox, malaria, and dangerous ideas. This tension represents the historic animosity that exists between light and darkness. Christianity has always been a threat to those who love the darkness. And it has always been a blessing to those yearning to find Life.
