Creative activities and ideas based on the biblical figure of Demas (co-worker Paul)
Demas is mentioned three times in the New Testament, all by Paul. In Colossians 4:14, he is described as a "fellow worker" in Paul's ministry, while in Philemon 1:24, he is again described as a "fellow worker". However, in 2 Timothy 4:10, Paul writes that Demas "has deserted me because he loved this world" and has gone to Thessalonica. This suggests that Demas may have abandoned his faith or at least his ministry with Paul in favor of worldly desires. His story serves as a warning against the dangers of becoming too attached to the things of this world.
