Paganization of Christianity

I am listening to Fr. Thomas Hopko's podcast series on Church & State. This is an excerpt from Part 3.

He describes the "paganization of Christianity" after the 4th century, the change from a Church looking for the coming Kingdom to one wanting to protect earthly kingdoms, from Christians asking for the strength and grace to endure suffering to asking to be spared all suffering. Sound familiar?

By nature I am a skeptical person, and people with a lot of skepticism start to question atheism.

Trust in God, not riches

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.

Habakkuk 3:17-19
