1 Peter 4:1-6 (Larry Malament)
Verse: 1 Peter 4:1–4:6
John Barclay: "Christians deserted ancestral practices, passed on since time immemorial, for a novel religion of recent manufacture. The exclusivity of the Christians’ religion – their arrogant refusal to take part in, or to consider valid, the worship of any God but their own – deeply wounded public sensibilities. Such an unnatural and ungrateful attitude to the 'gods' even branded them at 'atheists'."
Edmond Hiebert– “A life of Christian holiness is a happy life, but it is very costly.”
