Can I be called a “Christian”?
If the county prosecutor were to file charges against you in court for being a “Christian,” could he provide enough evidence to a jury to get a conviction? Would your co-workers agree with an allegation that you’re a “Christian?” Today, Pastor Greg Byman explores Acts 11:26 where believers in Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” at the ancient city of Antioch. Bearing the name “Christian” was a much heavier burden than today, and Pastor Byman challenges us to carefully consider the authenticity of our faith and our relationship with God.

Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
