Everyday, they would go to the temple/alter and give sacrifices to the Lord. If there were anyone that did not cooperate with the Christianity faith, they were put to death. There were many people that still followed Pagan customs and they tried to put magical spells and things of that nature on the Christians , but if you were caught, a horrible consequence followed that action.
