Pergamum: Good Deeds, Bad Doctrine
Can you imagine if our church got a direct message from Jesus? This is what happened to the seven churches of Revelation. All located in what is now known as modern day Turkey, each of these churches had a certain personality which led to a certain kind of sin. The church at Pergamum was known for two things, one good and one bad. They still claimed the name of Christ despite persecution, but they were also know for compromising morally and spiritually. What would Jesus say to a church with these issues?
