In the steps of Paul

Deputy Principal at Tabor, Dr Stephen Spence is in Europe, walking in the steps of Apostle Paul…

The view from Mars Hill is dominated by the majestic Acropolis, the sacred centre of Athens. Mars Hill was a small site but what struck me most was he (Paul) was preaching about the inadequacies of their gods with the Acropolis dominating the view above him and the Agora (years of culture, power, and religion) spread out below him. Paul didn’t mind a challenge. Which goes to one of my often asked questions. They didn’t feel guilty for their sins, so why did pagans embrace Christianity?

    so penal substitution wasn’t a big drawcard?
