PERGAMOS: The Church’s Age of Popularity  

   

   12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: These things saith He which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13  I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and holdest fast My name, and hast not denied thy faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.”  Revelation 2: 12, 13, K.J.V.

Monotheism and Polytheism:  Monotheism literally means “the belief in only one God.” The three major world monotheistic religions are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Arab American Museum claims that “all three originated on what is known today as the Arab world.” It says further that:

     Judaism is the oldest, being 3500 years old. “Jews believe that God made a promise (called the first covenant) to Abraham, the he would be a father to a great people if he followed God’s instructions. Jews believe that God renewed the covenant (the second covenant) with Moses, who led the Jews out of slavery in Egypt . God also revealed the 10 commandments to the Jews as a set of rules to follow.” Read more
