The Apostle Paul and his team had been forced to leave the new Christians at Thessalonica behind. The door had now been opened for false accusations to be made. What were the true motives behind these men that had come to town? Were they simply after money? Were they being deceptive? Why did they leave so unexpectedly?
This was more than a battle for Paul’s reputation. The Gospel of Jesus Christ was on the line. The work of Christ was under attack. With a stunning testimony Paul revealed his heart and his motives to the Christians he so dearly loved.
We are left with a revealing testimony of a man approved by God. The lessons stand throughout the ages as a living example for all those called to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Study 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12 with Bible Teacher Mark Fontecchio.

Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
