When King Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah in 605 B.C., his empire was the greatest in the world. He brought educated, young, male Israelites like Daniel back to Babylon to serve in the king's palace. This series focuses on the lessons we can learn from the life of Daniel in choosing to hold fast to your convictions, rather than conforming to the world.
In Daniel Chapter 1, we learn that Daniel and the other young Israelite men were schooled on the language and religion of Babylon. Babylon was a culture obsessed with youth and beauty, much like our culture today. Pastor Chris gives three tips on how to survive in "Babylon." He also uses Daniel's situation to show that our values are what we do, not what we claim. Rather than conform to the ways of the Babylonians, Daniel chose to stand up for his convictions. The results are legendary.
