Pest Control: The Church at Thyatira

Pest Control: The Church at Thyatira

Passage: Revelation 2:18-29

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Interior Design

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: leadership, repentance, selfishness, sexual immorality, sin

The church’s toleration of immoral behavior by its members leads to hardships and eventual judgment from God. The troubles in Thyatira were the result of immorality, which brings up a host of related topics such as: repentance, leadership, and unity in the church. The letter implies that the immorality of one has spread to several and is having effects on all. Sin is a family issue and repentance is a family responsibility. Even today, the Church must settle into a place where it allows people to deal with their sins and dysfunctions, but upholds righteousness as a vital expectation.
