Exodus (Program #63) – The Negative Aspect of the Giving of the Law (3)

The living of Christ was reproduced in Stephen.  When our brother Stephen was being stoned, was he wondering what would Jesus do in this situation?  How am I suppose to conduct myself when I am being stoned?  He was just loving the Lord, one with the Lord and the Lord was living in him.

Stories of corruption in politics, religion, and even among God’s people are frequent in the news today. We hear such tales on tv and radio, and in the newspapers daily. It’s easy to be disgusted, even ashamed, at what we hear, and we wonder how our society could have fallen to such a low condition. But, corruption has long plagued man’s society. The account of the corruption of politics, religion, and even to some degree the Church of God is a major focus of the Bible in especially the book of Acts. How did God’s Called Ones deal with such a discouraging situation? We will see on today’s life study of the Bible.
