Cultural opposition, insult and disrespect against the Christian God and His people are nothing new
under the sun. It is depicted in the New Testament and it has prevailed until today. During the
Reason Rally, Oxford professor Richard Dawkins encouraged atheists to mock and ridicule the
religious in public, actor Stephen Fry caused a media stir when He publicly blasphemed the God of
the bible and secular humanism is trying to replace Christian ethics in society.
In the First Epistle of Peter, the audience in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia is being
written to because of a similar kind of social opposition; and the apostle instructs the Christians to
follow a paradigm that walked before us.
Please join us this Sunday to study God’s Word and to learn more about the Christian response to the
suffering caused by an opposing society.
