City of Idols, Part Two

From Series: When The Church Was Young

Acts 17:22-34  (ID: 2448)

In Acts 17, Paul provides a model for the framework of engaging our culture as we share the truth of Christ. Paul witnessed the glory of God degraded by idolatry, but did not condemn the people. Instead, he explained the truth of God as Creator and Sustainer of life, who cannot be enshrined by human hands. Alistair Begg encourages us to be relevant in the culture, but committed to the truth of God’s Word.
