We sometimes feel like we're surrounded by those who deny God and live by their own rules. Their gods are not our God and we may feel weak and powerless.
But this is not the first time in history this situation has even happened. In the first century, Paul wrote to people in the same kind of situation. They were new believers surrounded by pagans who pressured them to abandon their new faith for the religion of the masses. Why fight the crowd when it would be so easy to tolerate every belief system?
My new book, Set Apart: Living Today in a Pagan World, addresses the issue of maintaining our faith in the midst of cultural opposition. Click here for Set Apart's website. I hope you'll take a look!
Yesterday, I mentioned Bible quizzing because the quiz material for the 2009-2010 year is 1&2 Corinthians and Titus, the same material covered by Set Apart, which makes it a good companion book for quizzers as well.
