    To Rodney- again; I know I said in my last message that it was 'all', but I did need to explain more of why I 'attacked' him; He is a pastor, right? I'm not angry nor indignant with him; it's just I was raised to believe pastors are to seek God for their guidance and answers; not their flock. The pastors are to teach the flock, not vice versa. We are DEFINITELY not to teach the pastors, 1pet.5:2.

    To Rodney - Since you are assuming I attacked a man of God and could not 'hear' my tone of voice - nor discern my attitude - this is all I will say, except - I do thank-you for the response, God Bless you.

    To Irene123. It seems to me like your knowledge has you puffed up....Why would you attack a Man of God when he is simply asking a question about Peters nakedness.
  • Irene123
    Something I literally just now noticed - I went to ch. 3 and saw Peter's healing of the lame man at the gate; somewhere I read (not on here) that this was the Apostle's first healing. No, it wasn't; in ch. 2, after the message, "many signs and wonders were done ....."; the 'gate' healing was spoken of as a miraculous miracle because of their 'instant' faith, right on the spot.

    To Bible Reader on salvation - repentance, baptism in the name of Jesus; do you include the 'evidence' of tongues in that .....?
