Doug, I usually agree with you, but not on this one. The early church was not "out to change the world". They were out to change the hearts of people and bring them closer to God, in spite of the world they lived in. This kind of "Jesus was a revolutionary out to teach the world to sing" has led to things like social justice movements, common salvation, utopian ideas, and even the anti-human environmentalist movement.
