Some Strange Ideas

Acts 17:16-23  (ID: 0553)

When Paul addressed a gathering of Athenian intellectuals in Acts 17, he could have been addressing present day people: interested in big, lofty ideas, but often unable to live in accordance with them. Surveying their exchange, Alistair Begg presents us with a thought-provoking choice. Like the Athenians, we can dismiss Paul’s words as babble, or even enjoy hearing them without letting them change our lives—or we can let the truth of the Gospel work through us to transform our world.

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.
