Acts Chapter Eighteen, Paul's Stop In "Sin City"
In our study of Acts chapter eighteen, we look at Paul's second missionary journey and the spread of the gospel in Europe. This chapter tells us of Paul's efforts at evangelism in one of the toughest places of that day. Corinth, which was a part of the Roman Empire, was probably the most wicked city of that period in history. It was a place where people went to live it up as sex and pleasure was indeed a religion there. There was a temple there to "Aphrodite the goddess of love" and at the time there was over a thousand prostitutes there for the use of the worshipers. As always, Paul went to the city and preached the message of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He showed them that there was hope for them even in this most wicked of places and people came to the Lord!
