Prison Protest

Paul rejected his informal and private release from prison. Why?

2. People of authority often make mistakes of judgment because they fail to look for all the evidence. The greater mistake is to deny making the first one.

3. What has God given you naturally, like citizenship, that you should be using for His glory?
