Creative Confrontations & Crucial Conversations

July 18, 2015

Acts 4 is an epic battle between a David-like underdog and a Goliath-like giant. In one corner you have two rather unschooled, unimpressive Galilean fishermen named Peter and John. In the other corner you have all the power and authority of 2,000 years of religious tradition. It is the first clash in the history of the Christian church, and it all took place in the temple precinct. What can we learn from that confrontation that could be useful today? Do we clash with hierarchical-driven traditions? Do we have to confront a “culture” that seems to undermine our faith and worldview? What principles can be found in Acts 4?
