Summary
Early Christians used charges of adultery, incest, and lascivious behavior to demonize their opponents, police insiders, resist pagan rulers, and define what it meant to be a Christian.

True or not, these charges allowed Christians to present themselves as different from and morally superior to those around them. Through caref
