Game Changing Responses for a Hostile Culture

We went back up to Naperville over the weekend, after moving down to St. Louis a couple weeks ago. Of course that meant returning to Harvest Naperville to hear a guest preacher preach one of the most relevant messages I’ve heard in a while on a passage I had somehow skimmed over before.

And as he was saying these things in his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind; your great learning is driving you out of your mind.” But Paul said, “I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I am speaking true and rational words.

Acts 26:24-25

That stood out to me. How many of us have been told recently that we are out of our mind? It’s why I love the quote from Orwell:

In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

George Orwell

The truth is revolutionary. Many will say that we are out of our mind, but we are the ones speaking true and rational words.
