[SERMON] Acts 18.1-7

Paul leaves Athens and heads to Corinth where he meets Priscilla and Aquila who had to flee Rome due to the Emperor Claudius - something corroborated by history and proving Acts is reliable.  Paul preaches that Jesus is the Messiah and those who deny this commit blasphemy, deserving death for rejecting Jesus.  Ministers, as the CofE Ordinal lays out, and asks us to vow, must be watchmen (Ezekiel 33.7) warning people of sin and blasphemy otherwise it is our own fault they perish.  Ultimately, despite opposition God promises to protect Paul and, as always - then and now - God fulfills that promise.
