Idolatry

Preaching the good news often requires starting 
with the foundational truths of God’s care 
through creation and providence.
(Acts 14:14-18)

Beating
Intense opposition to the gospel is not unexpected
but is never ultimately successful.

The Gospel often starts with
a proper understanding of God.
