There were times in the Book of Acts when the unsaved could not deny how God spontaneously expanded the church. During one attack on the new Christians (e.g. Jason), they said, “These men…have turned the world upside down and have come here also” (17:6). I sometimes wonder if we are more interested in being acceptable to the world and our surroundings than we are in bringing the gospel message of deliverance from sin to the perishing.
