You are listening to Life In A Pagan City sermon 7 of the series, “The Church in Babylon.” As our country’s culture continues to drift away from biblical moorings, how should we react? How should we live in an increasingly hostile society?
The nation of Judah was once in a similar situation. Under the judgment of God, thousands were taken into Babylonian exile, where they dwelled in the midst of a pagan society. The prophet Jeremiah sent a letter to exiles to instruct them on how to live in such an environment—lessons we could do well to live by in today’s culture.
What comes to mind when you hear the name Babylon? Babylon is often used as a symbol of man’s rebellion against God. Thanks to their rebellion, the Jews were eventually carried off into Babylon, where they tried to maintain their faith in the midst of a pagan culture. These messages from the book of Jeremiah walk through what happened before the coming of the Babylonians and the destruction of Jerusalem. We will see parallels to our own nation; more importantly, we will look into our own hearts and see that we, like generations before us, must prepare for dark and difficult days. These messages are intended to motivate us to be faithful in a pagan culture that is under the judgment of God.
