    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.

    Devout men of every nation : does that mean they were religious men

    What I think of Acts 2 is -- it is THE beginning of Jesus' church and HIS salvation is found in verse 38.
  • Irene123
    I know He calls us and He receives us - after we have followed Acts 2:38. There is no, with just our mouths, 'accepting' Him as our personal savior. not when Peter himself, with the keys of knowledge Jesus gave him, was inspired by the Holy Ghost to preach Acts 2:38. How could anyone think that Jesus is such a 'marshmallow after the pre-scourging, then hours of crucifixion he went thru?
