The church confronting heresy
“Unto the angel of the church of Pergamum write . . . I know thy works” (See Revelation 2:12-17, RSV).
The description of Christ as “The Word of God” in the letter to the church at Pergamum is an indication that this congregation has a problem – one that can only be corrected by knowing and applying the truth of God and adhering to his Word (both Living and written).
