A Godly Man in a Godless City

Acts 17:16-34  (ID: 1334)

When the Apostle Paul visited the city of Athens, he was greatly distressed by the number of idols he saw. Rather than destroying the statues or going through political channels to have them removed, Paul took a different approach to telling people about the God who deserves their worship. Alistair Begg observes how Paul’s evangelistic initiative made an impact on the community and how we can learn to share the good news of Christ in our daily realms of influence.


Paul in Athens

16Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols.
