Numerically Speaking Paul Rogers of Centerville, Tennessee has done some calculating of just how far the apostle Paul walked in his efforts to spread the gospel. According to Acts, he took three missionary journeys. The second of these alone amounted to 3,000 miles, 2,000 of which would have been on foot. The average daily distance a traveler of that time would cover was 20 miles, with a Roman inn being located every 20-25 miles along the roads. These inns were unbelievably filthy, immoral, and bug infested. Paul traveled through snowy mountain passes and spring floods. He walked through areas famous for harboring robbers and criminals. He braved wild beasts that imperiled every traveler. The travel recorded in Acts 16 would have covered 740 miles. That of chapter 15 would have been 500 miles. And to think he wasn't walking for his own health but for the spiritual well-being of others. How many contemporary Christians find it burdensome to travel 20 minutes in heated and air-conditioned cars to come to Sunday evening and Wednesday night services? What would apostle Paul say to them? -Paul R. Blak
