This morning Paul Seiler will preach from Romans 12:1-2 and Daniel 1:1-21 on the theme, "Dare to be a Daniel; Dare to Stand Alone." Is Australia a pagan country? At least there are powerful, intellectual, God-hating, atheistic forces at work in Australia and the West doing all they can to remove the influence of Christianity from our society. Daniel and his friends faced a similar situation but stood firm because they were grounded in God's word and stood upon it whatever the personal cost. What great models for us today.
