Pastor’s Blog

I am thinking about the message that Jesus sent to the church in Pergamum. They were a great church in many ways but they had allowed compromise with the world to take place. I was thinking about how we might be tempted to compromise with the world and I think our main temptation to compromise comes at us through media. We are bombarded with a constant stream of information, entertainment, music, literature, and news. Most of it comes from a perspective that does not honor God. I think if we are not aware of this bombardment we will succumb to its message. God has called us to be different from the world. We must resist the ungodly influences around us and fill our minds with the truth of God. It is a tough battle that we fight but we can win this and find ourselves blessed and Bringing glory to God!
