World Religions: Greek gods

July 5, 2019

You have heard of Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite, and the other gods of the ancient Greeks. Myths and legends have been built around them for centuries. But their temples have been destroyed, and the Greek religion, while alive in story is really dead in practice. But this ancient Greek religion had an influence on the Romans who would follow them, and is mentioned several times in the Bible as Paul and others worked to proclaim the True God to those who believed in the ancient gods of the Greeks. Join us for a study of these ancient Greek gods, a comparison between this religion and Christianity, and the value of being familiar with this and other false religions (dead or alive) as Christians.
