Episode 29 - The Gospel & Public Conflict

March 18, 2021
|
preached by

The book of Acts is rife with conflict. The public preaching of the Gospel often resulted in the imprisonment and reproach of the Apostles. Ever wonder why the Apostles didn't just start house churches and invite people to attend those to "find out who Jesus is"? Wouldn't that have been an effective "mission" strategy that bypassed all the public conflict? Today, we often think being missional means avoiding conflict at all costs, but that is emphatically NOT the way the Apostles went on mission. Join us for this episode of Sermon B-Sides as Pastor Jon and Pastor Rusten discuss conflict in the book of Acts and why the public declaration of the Gospel and the public singing of praises to God is so important. We hope you enjoy and as usual if you have any questions for Sermon B-Sides, email pastor@coramdeochurch.org.
