Compromised in Pergamum

9 May 2021

Speaker: Mickey Lohr

Discussion Questions

  1. What is the teaching of Balaam and why  should we be mindful of it?
  2. What is the sword of Gods Mouth? What does it mean to have a sharp double-edged sword (Ephesians 6:17)?
  3. What is “hidden manna” and why would we want some?
  4. What is the purpose of getting a white stone and what is the meaning of “no one knows except the one who receives it”?


  • False teachings, compromise of our faith and other evil can make its way into our church if we are not vigilant. Jesus is the truth-teller.
  • Staying faithful to Jesus’ teachings and living through constant reading of them is the best way we have of maintaining the clarity of vision necessary for this task. Difficult times do not give an excuse to compromise.
  • If we have ears, we are personally responsible to listen and act as the Holy Spirit leads us.
  • Our identity needs to be defined by Christ, not our society or culture.
