This church finds herself in a uniquely dangerous place — the place where Satan lives. Yet, in the face of external pressure, they have remained faithful to Christ. However, the pressure from outside is not the only threat, perhaps not the worst threat, she faces. External threats were met well, however, they face internal threats too, and here they’re fairing poorly. Jesus cares about the truth — he himself is the truth, and he will fight against lies that lead his people astray and into bondage. Regardless of where the threat may come from, the church must seek the truth, cling to the truth, defend the truth, love the truth.
