"The Unintended Compliment"
When the world, in all it's wisdom, is threatened simply by words then the words must be powerful! In this case, it's the word of Jesus Christ and the Gospel being delivered by Paul. In Thessalonica while on his second missionary journey with Silas, Timothy and Dr. Luke in tow we see the Jews threatened by Paul as he teaches Jesus as the Christ. The truth of God is powerful to change culture. If it were not one would have to question just how much of the culture has pervaded the church's message. Not the case with Paul! The Jews outcry of his Message, "they've turned the whole world upside down!" "Really? Thanks for the compliment!"
