There Ain’t Enough Room In This Town for the Both of Us!

Passage: Judges 2:6-3:11

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: culture, idolatry, loyalty, faithfulness

Like a number of television shows, Judges can feel like a series of stories that all follow the same template. And in fact, they do. The cycle of the typical Judges story is introduced in ch. 2, and then a short example follows with the first major Judge, Othniel. In every account, the drama is precipitated by the people of God acclimating to the cultures of pagan worship and other gods. The challenge for the church today to live in the world, along with its cultures, but to maintain a unique faithfulness to God and identity in him is a moving target. And yet it is imperative that we continue striving to be culturally relevant and biblically faithful at the same time.
