Together in the Word - October 29, 2017

We are said to be intolerant for calling homosexuality a sin. We are called old fashioned for saying that premarital sex is wrong. We are labeled as foolish and ignorant for preaching that the world was created in six normal days. What do we expect? God warns us in his Word that we will suffer and be despised for standing firm in the truth of his Word.
