(Sabbath Sermon, 15th February, 2014)
Apostles Peter and Paul in Culture Shock!
If the apostle Peter or Paul were to stroll through this life again, how will they cope in the modern religious world?
First, modern life itself would strike them as somewhat quaint and otherworldly, what with zooming cars and ear-hugging mobile phones and cloud-piercing airplanes buzzing overhead! But as devout followers of Christ, they would seek to find out if the Christian faith they lived for and died for still exists.
On first encounter, the strangeness of contemporary Christianity would confound them; the shallowness of today’s church-goers would amaze them, and the descent of church ritual into pagan myths would alarm them.
First, they would miss most church services if they intend, week after week, to visit the various churches. As their custom was, they would make a point of attending services on the Sabbath (Acts 17:2; 16:13), but most of the Christian world would be holding services on Sunday.
