Moving Forward in the Historical Timeline of Christianity.

 

1675

 

Do you think your pastor’s message runs too long? If so, be glad you weren’t in Massachusetts in May of 1675, when a new law went into effect that required church doors to be locked from the inside, to prevent people from leaving before the end of the sermon.

 

 

1816

 

The American Bible Society was organized this month in 1816. Since their inception, they have distributed hundreds of millions of Bibles in thousands of languages worldwide.
