Discussion for Acts 2

  • Wayne
    VV.38 and 41: repent and be saved, baptized, and they received the Holy Ghost. No speaking in other languages needed that day. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Speaking another language is a sign to unbelievers, not believers.
  • Jamilah Noble
    All throughout the Bible including mark 16:16 baptism is apart of salvation
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    From the book of Acts to the book of Jude, its all there. Speaking in Tongues is an absolute must for you to manafest because Gods Holy Word says so. The Word of God IS the WILL of God, Amen and Amen indeed. Shalom yedda dim {beloved one}.
  • MISSIONERY PASTOR TIMOTHY MUSAU
    THE CHURCH JESUS WAS BORN AT PENTECOST DAY, SET APART ON THE SAME DAY, CAME UP WITH A DIFFERENT SYSTEM OF ERADICATING POVERTY BY SHARING WHAT THEY HAD ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS AND NOBODY LACKED THUS COVERING EACH OTHERS NAKEDNESS.
  • Magnocrat
    Devout men of every nation : does that mean they were religious men
  • Irene123
    What I think of Acts 2 is -- it is THE beginning of Jesus' church and HIS salvation is found in verse 38.
