You have to wonder why christians back then in Rome were so insanely persecuted after the death and ressurection of Jesus. I bet it wasn't just because they identified themselves as such, but I have a feeling they also were very active in keeping the morality at the biblical level.
as an encouragement:
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
