Holding the torch high for the sake of truth is an amazing responsibility which carries with it certain risks. Millions of people have given their lives while doing so. We call them martyrs.
But for those who remain alive, the task of truth-telling can also be risky. Sometimes, those who tell the truth can become proud, self-righteous, or even harsh with those who may not agree. We call them proud critics.
So what does Jesus call them? Curious about the rest of the story? Find out by listening to this sermon when St. Peter comes to life at the Mount Vernon Seventh-day Adventist Church.
What better place to be if the promised violent winter storm turns the electricity off!
Scripture: Mark 8:27-37; Matt 4, Acts 12
