The adversities Billy Graham and Cliff Barrows experienced in England, 1946-1947, paled before apostolic suffering. Regularly hounded out of synagogue and town for preaching Christ, they left, walked to the next town, entered the synagogue and preached Christ. They could be run from town to town for preaching Christ but they couldn’t be stopped from preaching Christ wherever they went.
They learned from Jesus. For wherever Jesus went, he always stood FOR God against whatever opposed God. He never stood in the middle of the road on any subject, trying to find common ground for all. It was his Way or the Highway that led to Perdition! He never thought that embracing truth was negotiable.
In Revelation 2-3 he had harsh words for any church compromising his truth. And he threatened to upchuck one church—Laodicea—the men “in the middle”—who prided themselves on being everything to everyone. End Part III
