Third Sunday of Easter
Worship God and proclaim His Word so people will experience salvation through Jesus, mature in the faith and equip all to serve in the church and world.
Acts 8:29-31 The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.“How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

Illiteracy and Control
Illiteracy was wide spread in Europe centuries before Christians fled to America to escape persecution. Along with illiteracy the bible was not available in their language. Consequently, Christian leaders taught that the bible required both the state and church to rule its citizens with a heavy hand. The common citizen didn’t know what the bible taught and could not learn otherwise.
No More Tears
Revelation 7:9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
