Who among us wants to be persecuted, alienated, ostracized, or rejected because of what we believe? None of us WANTS that! But as we kick off our new series "Christianity: ALL NATURAL", we have to come to terms with the fact that if we teach what the early apostles and christians taught, we may very well get treated they they got treated.
Here's the crazy part. The first and foremost persecutors of the early christians wasn't the Romans--the wicked pagans. It was the religious! The religious crowd of the day just couldn't stand what the Christians were teaching. They weren't willing to part with Moses so they could have Jesus alone.
What shall our response be as we are certain to face rejection by the religious crowd of our day who embrace a "Jesus Plus Moses" mentality rather than a "Jesus Alone?"
