Sermon Notes:
This week, we looked at the Church in Pergamum. The first thing we learned about this city is that its residents were incredibly religious. They worshiped SO MANY gods it was almost suffocating. If you entered the city of Pergamum you would see temple after temple and people offering gifts, money, and time to these gods in order to please them. Much of their service to these gods was based out of superstition and fear, as these gods were seen as capricious (capricious means: given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behavior. We would call this “fickle” or “unpredictable”). People in Pergamum would sacrifice out of fear because they never knew what mood the gods were in at any moment.
