Lessons from the Revelation churches. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
In Revelation two and three, Jesus gives commendations and warnings to seven historic churches in what is now modern-day Turkey.
No church is praised for its growth, programs, music, societal impact, social justice, or relevance to non-believers.
Instead, what Christ commends is faithfulness to God’s word, intolerance of false teaching, perseverance in suffering, and holiness, while warning against sexual immorality, worldliness, and loss of love for Christ.
The church today would do well to read and heed Christ’s messages to these churches.
And then tune in this weekend for another topic that will sharpen your worldview.
