Revelation 2:12-17 ‘Living where Satan has his throne.’ Pergamum

Pergamum is a godless place, the throne of Satan, polytheistic and pluralistic. Yet the church there has remained a faithful witness even in the midst of persecution. But some among them hold to false belief and false behaviour. Jesus has harsh rebuke for them. Sin is no trivial matter. We likewise today have no excuse for sin and must never minimise, tolerate or justify our sin. Jesus is coming as the judge.
