Sermon Topic: The Gospel to the Philosophers
Sermon Date: 10th September, 2017.
The Reverend Ross Hathway preached.
Isaiah 40: 21-26
Acts 17: 16-34
Connections with the hearers, correcting their misconceptions, conversing with their ideological framework, convicting them of their compromises with their consciences in the light of their own intellectual commitment are critical steps. It is also necessary to confront them with their need of repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, because of the coming day of Judgement. These are all the essential features of a dialogue that is distinctly Christian and Biblical.
