Superstition, misunderstanding and hatred caused the Christians trouble for many generations, and governmental repression they had to suffer occasionally, as a result of popular disturbances.

Religion and believers #5 Transition to Monotheism

Christ the foundation of the church
Peter evidently did not view himself as the rock on which Jesus would build his congregation, since he wrote at 1Pe 2:4-8 that Jesus was the long-foretold “foundation cornerstone,” chosen by God himself. Similarly, the apostle Paul referred to Jesus as the “foundation” and “the spiritual rock.” (1Co 3:11; 10:4).

Nobody may forget that in whatever language the Bible is inspired by God and as such protected by God's Power so that it can be useful for every person on earth for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, in such a way that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.
