Very helpful This sermon may be long but it is really worth every minute. Don't walk away from this half-way; it is important to hear the entire message.
I really appreciated Paul's remarks about being persecuted for righteousness sake. The same exact scenario happened to me. During my college years I worked at an E-Free Bible camp that hires unconverted "Christians" as counselors. I remember going to one of their houses on our off day to watch a movie and a worldly counselor wanted to watch some movie about a magician. Right away I was really bothered by it and got up and said "Im sorry but I just cant watch this." And went to another room and sat by myself until the movie was over. That guy who suggested the movie was so angry. He really gave me a hard time the rest of the summer, criticizing me and making fun of me.
Paul's sermons are helpful to me and I highly recommend them.
