I have heard it said amongst our opposition "never defend; attack". We have seen throughout the scriptures the strategy of stirring up the citizens and authorities against us. Not arguing the facts on their merit, not reasoning alternate interpretation, but inciting crowds into frenzies. Now days we are labeled bigots, the Bible hate speech, our political rights to be separated and restrained. You do see the heart of the enemies of the Lord, do you not?
This excellent opportunity to preach came about in a time when most of us would have been content just to wait. But Paul was stirred by the city's idolatry and he went into the synagog and from there was invited to Mars Hill before the philosophers. His argument essentially was why worship in ignorance when you can worship in the knowledge and truth?
