A Godly Man in an Ungodly Culture

Feb 17, 2024    David Horner

The nation of Israel was in trouble. It had been divided into north and south, and a long succession of evil kings had deteriorated the moral fabric of the culture. No king was more evil than Ahab who was heavily influenced by his wife Jezebel. Together, they made Baal worship the state-sponsored religion. But in the midst of this ungodly culture, God raised up a bold prophet: Elijah. Our culture is not much different from Elijah's. What did it look like for a godly man like Elijah to stand up in the midst of an ungodly culture? We can learn from Elijah what it looks like to be a man of God today.
