In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, political socialists around the world began to promote the concept of "nationalism"--the idea that one's loyalty belonged to the "state". While good concepts in the political arena, these same ideas can become snares in the religious. The church at Pergamum had to deal with this issue and weren't doing too well at it. Jesus warns this church that some of its members were delving into heresies that endangered the church's testimony--something Jesus took very seriously. This message was presented by Craig Miller, Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, Ohio Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013.
